Lewis Hamilton in the MP4-12C
As Lewis completes his last race as a McLaren driver, relive the time he drove us in an MP4-12C…

"It's life," Lewis continues. "The ups and downs. How you bounce back. You've always got to take positives out of the bad things that happen. I hope people are able to benefit from some of my experiences, and the way that I do and don't handle them. Things happen in life, and you have to learn from them. Definitely."
It's a little odd settling into the seat of a car that's only just been vacated by Lewis Hamilton. Maybe he'll have left a sliver of talent behind that I can absorb through my buttocks. Thing is, the McLaren MP4-12C is so good, in so many ways, that you simply don't need to be Lewis-special to feel like a million dollars driving it. We're immediately assimilated into the neon Dubai night, a multi-lane freeway free-for-all that just doesn't let up.
