“His driving footage, theories and episodes will provide valuable advice to many players who strive to be just as fast and strong as the Maestro himself.”

Hamilton said of the project, “I have been playing Gran Turismo since I was a child, so to actually be part of the gameplay design has been an incredible experience.”

Gran Turismo series producer Kazunori Yamauchi added, “From watching Lewis drive on TV all these years, I had an idea of how he might drive, but the experience of watching him drive in person was well beyond my wildest expectations. And I’m really glad to be able to share his driving philosophy with all Gran Turismo players.”
