Lewis Hamilton says he wishes that “it was just the pure ability that I have that makes all the difference, but in F1 there’s so many people’s ability coming together”.
Formula 1 is a team sport, which means individual drivers don’t hold their own destinies firmly in their hands, but instead depend on the whole team to produce a winning package.
Lewis Hamilton says he loves that challenge.
“I do watch other sports and I wish that it was just the pure ability that I have that makes all the difference,” the Briton said, quoted by ESPN.
“But in F1 there’s so many people’s ability coming together. The communication, the amount of work, the processes decide the direction you will go.
“It’s like we’re all rowing the boat and whilst we’ve got Toto [Wolff] above the steering mechanism, we as drivers are also the part of the rod that’s steering it in the right direction.

“It’s definitely tough, but that should never be an excuse, it takes work and I wouldn’t really want it any other way.
“To be honest, if it was easy and every day was easy and you’re just getting through it, it just wouldn’t be a challenge.
“I love the challenge of working with everybody and challenging the people and them challenging me, all acknowledging this year that we haven’t done a great job.
“But it doesn’t mean we can’t do a great job in the future. We have done it in the past,” Hamilton concluded.
