Lewis Hamilton is undoubtedly one of the greatest Formula One drivers of all time. The Briton has been on a record-breaking spree, and there is not stopping him, even at the age of 36.
Lewis Hamilton has claimed seven world championship titles, and is chasing his eighth title this year. At the Spanish GP, the Briton secured his 100th career pole position, and 98th career win. Hamilton is a busy personality off the circuit, and is interested in a variety of other activities.
Lewis Hamilton revealed that when he does retire from Formula One, he wants to become an actor, and he will seek the necessary training for it.
“I would like to act one day. I want to be the best, in everything I do, I want to be the best, to do the best I can,” said Hamilton. “So, if I’m going to do a film I’ll go to classes, I’ll study and make sure I express the emotions like I should. I don’t have the time right now, so I guess it’s something I’ll do when I retire,” he added.
Lewis Hamilton engaged in a close championship battle with Max Verstappen
Lewis Hamilton was looking in fine form, up until the Monaco GP last week. Prior to the race in Monte Carlo, the Briton had won three out of the previous four races, and was leading the championship by 14 points. However, things took a turn last weekend, as Max Verstappen claimed the P1 spot at Monaco GP.
With Verstappen winning the race, it meant that Lewis Hamilton dropped to the second place in the championship, with 101 points in five races. On the other hand, the Dutch driver has 105 points from his five races.
The duo have taken the rivalry to another level as they engaged in a war of words after the Monaco GP. They will continue their rivalry in the next race of the season in Baku, which takes place next weekend.
