Lewis Hamilton hopes that ‘lots can be learned’ from a new documentary featuring the seven-time world champion. It was confirmed in March that Apple+ would be airing a short film on the 37-year-old, who has become one of the most recognisable sporting figures on the planet since debuting with McLaren in 2007.
As of yet, few details have been released on the documentary, except that there will be full access to Hamilton himself. In fact, it’s the British icon who will help produce the programme, along with his sports and media talent manager Penni Thow, Box to Box Films and One Community.
However, he has hinted that it will go far deeper than highlights on his on-track triumphs. Hamilton has long used his platform to try and campaign for change, publicly supporting the Black Lives Matter movement and regularly wearing t-shirts bearing messages during the 2020 and 2021 seasons.
In races in the Middle East last season, he wore a rainbow coloured helmet in a bid to stand up for LGBTQ+ rights. And now he hopes his latest venture can have a “positive impact” on viewers.
