The new car will suit Lewis like a glove because these cars will be faster in corners

Lewis finds a lot of his lap time in braking zones. I remember an interview where he said that some circuits favoured Nico precisely because there was less hard braking. Nico was more about carrying speed through corners and on some flowing high speed sections/circuits he was therefore quicker than Lewis. So it's more about the circuits than the cars.

Of course, if the cars arrive at the corners faster, there's still time to be found getting them down to apex speed.

Maybe in years prior, but I would say as the corners get faster and require more commitment, Hamilton has appeared to also get faster and further from his teammate.

      James is almost always like that, basically every interview that I remember he's smiling. That's not say they haven't built a good car, just that you really can't tell that just from this one face expression.

          Give the personal stuff a rest, guys.
          The more that I learn, the more I appreciate how much more there is to know….

          He said the truth. People saying that Merc made a rocket, only because Allison is smiling, are heavily biased

          Ofcouse it does he's bias is showing clearly
          Bias towards what exactly? He didn’t say anything derogatory or negative… He had an opinion (a very harmless one), there is nothing wrong with that regardless of which team he roots for.

          I tend to agree with him, James is not only a great communicator, he has a similar demeanor in most of these videos / interviews… The one line that caught my attention was “One or two cars on the grid will have got it really wrong, I would imagine. And they will have a painful year.”… Without having a single car hit the track yet, it’s impossible to know where anyone seats in the pecking order, the trickiest part this season for the teams is setting performance targets for the new cars… Is been one second faster than 2021’s cars a sign that you have a great car under you? What if the rest of the grid is 2 seconds faster?…

          I think it is wrong to assume they know nothing. The teams are sending rule questions to the FIA and the FIA is answering them. From these clarifications the teams can certainly see if another team took route A or route B in different concepts and a highly number driven development as at Merc has certainly looked into every detail to say route B is 0.x seconds slower than route A.
          So the comment of Allison is certainly not just hot air.
