The beauty and wonder of watching Lewis Hamilton express his talent in a Formula 1 car never fades. And it takes multiple forms.
In qualifying, Hamilton sets off on a lap. He might already be fastest. He might not. Sometimes the scale of the unfolding achievement dawns immediately, as it did when he demonstrated his awe-inspiring turn-in speed at the first corner of Albert Park this year.
Sometimes, though, it has to wait: a sector time suddenly resetting the boundaries of the possible; perhaps one corner where somehow he makes up chunks of time on his rivals.
