Seems to me that Lewis struggles with the new start procedure but has otherwise been in good form. I'm reluctant to go much further than that in constructing a narrative.
I'd of course like Nico to beat him this year, though.
For the record, over the years I've had a couple shirts out of ~20 that were slightly off in a measurement or two - in particular, one shirt was about half an inch big in the torso and another was slightly big in the collar - but there's been no discernible "order creep" pattern and in both cases the variances were within my tolerances.
