Hamilton doesn't expect difficulties to race without driver aids

User Rating: / 0
Earlier this week Ferrari's team manager Luca Baldisserri questioned Hamilton's ability to handle a Formula One car stripped of electronic driver aids like traction control. But it doesn't worry the 23-year-old Briton a bit. "Maybe they are the ones that will have problems next year," Hamilton told reporters in Stuttgart.
The 2008 Formula 1 season will see traction control being banned from Formula 1. But Hamilton doesn't expect any difficulties to adjust to this rule change in F1. "I have raced without traction before and won races and championships," he said. "It will be slightly different in Formula 1 and at times it will be tricky. But all the drivers have the ability to deal with it.

"Those with more talent will get to grips with it faster and better. Let's wait and see who that is. Last year I had the ambition and didn't know how to achieve it. Now I do. I'm fitter and stronger, physically and psychologically. It gives me 100 times more motivation. Being world champion is my only goal.

"I wouldn't say it was a blow to lose the title that way but I wouldn't be human if I didn't feel anything. But I've recovered and I'm desperate to get back into the car again."

Heidfeld: TC ban to make races ‘more thrilling

BMW Sauber driver Nick Heidfeld believes that rule changes for the 2008 season should make for more exciting Grands Prix. Heidfeld predicts that the ban on traction control will lead to more dramatic race starts and ensure more overtaking.
Traction control (TC) had been part of Formula One racing since 2002, with the FIA reluctant to outlaw the technology for fear that policing a ban would prove unworkable. However, the introduction of standardised ECUs (Electronic Control Units) for 2008 has removed that fear.
