(cafetheology.org) – Lewis Hamilton grew up with the Formula 1 of the 1990s: his great hero was the Brazilian Ayrton Senna. The Brit was enthusiastic about it, when he was able to drive the legendary McLaren-Honda from the year 1988 in Silverstone. "I wish we had the speed of the current cars with the optics of the previous generations." But it was not just the look of the former bolides that made it the Mercedes driver. "I like a manual transmission, it's a bigger challenge," he points to the era when the pilots in Monaco usually had only one hand on the steering wheel – and this at around 60 gear changes per round. "This Tiptronics, which we have, I do not like them, "says 32-year-old Hamilton against the current technology. But the safety level is "already very good nowadays". Hamilton is also looking for danger. "I take my bliss from 'Wow Things', exciting things like rockclimbing, motorcycles and so on," he gives insights. "We have to keep it safe, but there should always be this dangerous element." When you sit in the cockpit, you do not think of the danger anyway: "This is different from people who do not race."
