Follow on Instagram: Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton

The king of the racetrack is also a rock star

This guy needs no introduction. Lewis Hamilton is a three-time Formula 1 champion who currently races for the mighty Mercedes team. As we write this, he’s a near-lock to grab his fourth title in 11 seasons. So we already know what he can do on the racetrack.

He has been racing all his life, ever since he was a kid.
