      Do the engineers have a button on the pit wall to mute Lewis when he is moaning?

      @Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport I;ve watched him moan every race for the past 5 years. He moans. Something other drives would be reprimanded for. E.g LeClerc at Sochi.

      No - we always ask him for his feedback and questions throughout. Today was a tough race as plans were changing and Lewis’ race wasn’t optimised like we normally would, after the change from one stop to two. But it’s amazing how quick people are to judge a champion’s competitive fire as moaning - we should stop judging so much and admire the fight within, in every race, on every day. It’s what means that when we discuss the greatest ever in our sport, his name always comes up.

      Lets face it, formula 1 drivers are basically fighter pilots. Same fearlessness, same kind of drive to push it to the edge.
