How has Hamilton ‘lost his touch’?

But as a child, he used to dream of racing for McLaren, having enrolled in their Junior Driver Support Program back in 1998.

In fact, he further fulfilled his dream by driving for them between 2007 and 2012, including a historic championship win in his second season in 2008.

Now he has been reflecting on the times he was driving as Kimi Raikkonen’s McLaren in the old PS1 F1 titles in the early 2000s.

In a video posted on Mercedes’ X account (formerly known as Twitter), Hamilton can be heard saying that he ‘lost my touch in this game.’
