“I guess it depends how they go about doing it,” said Hamilton at Silverstone.

“I’m happy – the more control we get the better.

“At the moment we release the clutch but the performance is dictated from the team.

“They will tell you whether to go up or down on torque modes or all those sorts of things.
“Sometimes they calculate it right and sometimes they don’t.”

“For me the best starts were when I was in Formula 3 and you had a normal clutch,” he said.

“They were more fun because I had the control, so if they do it right [in F1] it could be good.”
