Lewis Hamilton opens up about the impact racism has had on his career and how he chooses to carry himself. He’s the first black driver to win the F1 world drivers’ championship back in 2008 and shares his view of “being the first and only Black anything is a proud and lonely walk”. Currently, he is holding the joint record of 7 world drivers’ championships with Michael Schumacher, but isn’t finished yet. He is set to come back stronger in 2023 and surpass the German driver.
