go fast be faster,
but remember Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast!
drive the car but listen to her
every now and then look out the side you might miss something beautiful
that stuff your flying by looks nice sometimes.
Personality-wise, Lewis and Kimi couldn't be more different.
In terms of the way they drive and manipulate the cars, they couldn't be more similar. Their throttle and brake techniques are virtually identical. They both carry lots of speed into the corners and have epic corner exits, perhaps sacrificing a bit of speed in the apex. They both use unthinkable amounts of the track to pick up time (i.e., pushing it near the barriers at Monaco on corner exit, venturing dangerously near the grass into Turn 3 at Albert Park, torturing the curbs in the Chicanes at Monza, etc.). Kubica also resembles both of them very closely.
Thanks for signing up as a fan, Ian!
