Lewis Hamilton has been one of the most influential drivers in the history of Formula 1. He’s an absolute legend of the sport who has dominated the sport and continues to do so. His driving prowess has been there for everyone to see and he has topped it off with grit and determination whenever the chips have been down and it’s been said that, “He is finished.”

The seven time world champion has been able to bounce back in his vintage style. But it’s just not his on track behavior that has caught the eye, it’s also his behavior off it too. Lewis Hamilton has always lead with example and has been inspiration for so many people who are trying to crack the code.

Whether it’s standing up against racism, leading the movement against gender inequality or social injustice in F1, Lewis Hamilton has always taken a staunch stand against these social evils which taint the sport and our society too. The intention of the seven time world champion has always been to make use of his position and bring about a serious change in the society.

Lewis Hamilton has always conducted himself with class and grace and that could have been seen when we went to congratulate Max Verstappen after that controversial Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. We all can safely say that Lewis Hamilton is more than just a driver of F1.

Lewis Hamilton recently when asked about his legacy replied, “This is something year-on-year I get asked, the question about legacy.”

“In the earlier years, it was difficult to pinpoint or even understand what legacy really meant.”

“For me, I have been given this incredible opportunity to do what I do and be great at something but I have never wanted to be defined just as a driver.”

“Ultimately [Iam] someone that cares and tries to use the platform to really shift ideals, to shift perceptions and put pressure on systems to go in the right direction and be more inclusive.” As reported by gpfans.

Lewis Hamilton is setting for all sportsmen to positively use the influence that they have been fortunate to have in a meaningful and constructive manner to bring about a serious change against all the social evils present in the society
