Lewis Hamilton vs. the Nürburgring
Also dropping today, we’re excited to introduce the first of our Lewis Hamilton mentor videos, as Lewis goes head to head with the infamous Nürburgring circuit.
With two videos, one aimed at beginners and one for the more seasoned racer, the four-time world champion offers guidance and tips on how to navigate this notoriously challenging circuit.
Both videos provide a real insight into how Lewis races – from how he selects his racing lines and braking points, to his general racing philosophy that guides how he tackles every circuit.
Both the beginner and expert videos can be found in the Lewis Hamilton section of the Brand Central area. Rarely has Lewis provided this level of insight into what makes him one of the best racers in the world, so be sure to check them out before you take to the track.
Take a sneak peek below at what you can look forward to seeing in-game.
For now though, from everyone at Polyphony Digital, Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
