When speaking about the greatest Formula 1 drivers of all time, Lewis Hamilton’s name comes up in that discussion.
No one seems to get close to the Mercedes driver at the moment in terms consistent podium finishes and added to that, is also on course to overhaul Michael Schumacher’s championship win record. While Lewis Hamilton may be in a league of his own, there is one way to get one over the man from Stevenage.
If you own a Playstation 4 console and a copy of the game Gran Turismo Sport, then you’re that much closer to taking on Lewis. There is an option called the Lewis Hamilton Time Trial challenge which has to be purchased for under R300. Once you’ve spent some of your hard-earned money, the time has come to beat all of his times around some of the world’s most famous tracks. There are 10 track in total to blitz around, where players get behind the wheel of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 and Sauber C9.
The challenge takes Lewis out of his comfort zone of an F1 car and evens the playing field slightly for players.
Each win earns a different response from Lewis and if you achieve a Diamond rating in all the challenges, you’ll receive 100-million credits to spend on whichever cars you want. Pretty cool right?
Lewis Hamilton himself says his times will be very tough to beat but encourages as much competition as possible.
