The only black driver in the history of the sport hasn’t had it easy. Coming from humble backgrounds, nothing came on a silver platter for the Brit. Pursuing a career in karting from a young age and then achieving the dream of being an F1 driver was not easy. His father Anthony had to work multiple jobs to support his son’s dream.

“The youth is everything and something I am passionate about is getting children into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects,” said Hamilton. “Sport brings people together and it saved my life. I am glad we are doing something for good.

Hamilton who spends much of his time in his New York residence is a known face among the American audience. Hamilton is often seen attending American sports events and has been spotted in the company of other eminent personalities like LeBron James, Ryan Reynolds, David Beckham, and others. Ahead of the Miami GP Hamilton was present at the Miami Beach Golf Club where he was a part of a fundraiser with NFL great Tom Brady.

The rise in tide in the viewership of F1 in the United States of America can be largely credited to Netflix’s iconic series ‘Drive To Survive’. With the Circuit Of The Americas (COTA) already on the calendar since 2012, and the Las Vegas GP in the pipeline in 2023, the USA will be ready to host 3 Grand Prix in a single calendar year.

It has been a rather disappointing start for Hamilton and Mercedes in 2022. With just a podium finish for Hamilton in the Bahrain GP, the Brit has not been able to find his race pace as Mercedes have struggled with the proposing issue since the Barcelona testing.

“[You] come here with optimism and you know everyone is working really hard at the factory, and things just don’t come together,” he said, “We’ll just keep working hard. Each weekend is a rescue.”
