Of the two, I would hazard a guess that Nico would be more effected by the radio ban than Hamilton. That's because, as you say, Hamilton is quicker. And, for me, more of a natural. Plus, he takes...

Matchett wondered whether the FIA might ban all telemetry. Hobbs rightly replied that with all the dangerous electrics involved in the new hybrids, doing so would be exceedingly dangerous.
