    I was going to say he’s no racecar driver, because he wears no sponsor swag or branding... but now I know he is a fresh billboard of talent ripe for the “brandoning” ....liquid-moly hat and a bisquik pancake mix jacket on Tristan by the next video appearance ...get on it Apex Racing Media Relations !!! ... even billionaire privateers have their own companies branding on them! Sad but true!! Love the lap... Tristan seams to be a smooth criminal out there!

    Isn't shuffling all across the steering wheel actually bad, especially in race driving? He seems to be a smooth driver indeed, but when he did that "cross grip" in the roundabout...have to say I hate when people do this. Nevertheless wish you maximum success, I'm excited for you!

    You won’t see me cry if I could from now on out only lap the ring in this GTI. She’s ever so smooth if you treat her well. Funny sidenote: the remark at Aremberg was because you do not want to get braketested by a Porsche. So by no means is it a shit car. For real, enjoy it very much!

    @Pe Zed you’re spot on.

  • Pe Zed

    Πριν 21 ημέρα

    If you compete in drifting or rallying you have to adjust your hands to more steering angel almost all the time. In track racing like F1 or DTM and GT3 90% of the time drivers turn the weel max 90 degrees so they dont change their hadns position. So it may be a driver habit from driving on the street or other form of driving.
