Lewis Hamilton may have been recording music in the past few years, but the Mercedes driver has not let his musical side affect him on track. Hamilton had dominated the sport for years before eventually losing the championship to Max Verstappen in 2021. The 2022 season was riddled with struggles for Hamilton as the Silver Arrows dropped down the pecking order due to porpoising and lack of pace in the W13. The 37-year-old had his first winless year in F1 this season, but as has proved time and time again, he is a force to be reckoned with, the 7-time champion will give his everything next year as he aims to get back to winning ways.
