In the preview of the last Holland Grand Prize, which meant the return of the F1 to Dutch territory, Lewis Hamilton participated in the program children's NOS Jeugdjournaal and there he was interviewed by a group of children. Perhaps due to his interlocutors, the multiple champion spoke of some little-known aspects of his life. Let's see…


“I had always wanted to be a racing driver, but when I was little there were other options: I wanted to be a Superman or an astronaut. But cars are my true love. "


Lewis Hamilton“When I win one, the team takes it to the factory and keeps it. I win them and I am very proud of them, but I don't have room for all the trophies that I have won. When I get home I don't like to be reminded of the races and I don't need the trophies to show what I've done ”. 


“I've had people bothering me my whole life. Since I was karting it is the same, only now it is on a larger scale. I try to take that bad energy and use it in the race. I speak on the track ”.


Lewis Hamilton“I try to take it to all the races that I can. He's getting old and I don't know how long he'll be with me. So I try to always be with me. He is my best friend, I can trust him, he makes me happy. He always gets sad when I go out to train, but when I come back he gets very happy ”.


"I have a lot of dreams. I would like to make sport more diversity, create more access to people of color, more women in sport. Another of my dreams is for there to be peace in the world ”.


Lewis Hamilton“I like hiking in the snow, playing paintball, skydiving… I like making music and learning to play new instruments. I also really like astronomy. I have a telescope at home and in winter I warm myself up and go out to see the sky ”.
