Watch Lewis Hamilton Explain How To Lap The Nurburgring On Gran Turismo Sport

You don't have to be a sim racer to appreciate just how cool it is to see Lewis Hamilton explain how to unleash quicker lap times

Lewis Hamilton has a role in Gran Turismo Sport as a ‘driving mentor’ and until now, we’ve been waiting to see exactly what that means.

In the first of presumably many videos, he sits down with series creator Kazunori Yamauchi and drives several laps of the much-missed Nurburgring GP circuit, explaining his racing lines and reasoning behind how he drives.

It’s not often you see a four-time world champion go into so much depth about driving techniques. Even if you don’t play GT Sport, or if you’re not a gamer at all, it’s incredible to watch his process as he shaves seconds off of his lap times.

And if a 12-minute video wasn’t enough, there’s an extended 48-minute version as well! We can’t wait to see him talk through some different tracks in the future.

Now, excuse me while I go and try to beat his time…
