Science behind grand prix success
Hamilton has undergone an unprecedented regime at McLaren's Woking headquarters, masterminded by Dr Kerry Spackman, a New Zealand-born neuroscientist hired by McLaren to turn their exceptionally talented English driver into a race-winning machine.
A major part of Spackman's approach is the intensive use of computer simulators, which expose Hamilton to every twist, turn and eventuality of a race until dealing with them is utterly instinctive. . .
Clearly they chose the right man to train in the first place. A computer simulator would have done little for me.
