When you find a way of working that suits you, it's easy to stick with it. For some, that's absolutely fine and works well, but Lewis isn't one of those people.
"What I continue to find in life, all of us, we are very much stuck in our ways in the things we do," the Brit explained. "There's a way we do things and it's hard for us to change it, because that's what we've learnt works well.
"When you're working with engineers, for example, it's very similar. Breaking patterns, breaking moulds and challenging people, that's what I live to do.
"I'm a pain in the ass to my engineers upstairs. I'm always challenging, challenging, challenging. Even if I'm wrong, still questioning, questioning, questioning.
"Some of that, I like to think, has had a positive impact... to spring an idea or a direction in which we've pushed the car and our understanding, for example of the tyres.
"I really do believe this weekend we'll be in a better position than we were here last year. Our understanding of the tyres is far greater than it was when we arrived here last year.
"It's still a challenge to get right. So, we will take our understanding from last year and that experience with a pinch of salt because the car is different, it's improved, and we've got different tyre this weekend."
