Hamilton showcases his sim racing talents on Gran Turismo

Lewis Hamilton takes on himself on Gran Turismo Sport, attempting to beat his own time in the challenge mode.

Hamilton set a time of 1:37.094 around the Dragon Trail circuit on the driving simulation Playstation game, and the Formula 1 champion successfully dethroned himself by repeatedly chipping away at his time.

On his own system, Hamilton's best previous time was a 1:37.225 and, after showing off some of his impressive cars on the game, the Mercedes driver set about shaving off the time.

First he hit a 1:37.067 before managing a sub 97-second time with a 1:36.999.

Hamilton has not yet competed in any of the official Formula 1 Virtual Grand Prix races but now that he has shown off his talents in the virtual world, and with rival Sebastian Vettel having taken delivery of a simulator setup, how long will it be before the champion joins the fray?
