Lewis Hamilton: "My life is not just about Formula 1"

While Lewis Hamilton's on-track happenings often grab headlines, in the last number of years, the Brit has been faced with a lot of criticism due to his interests outside of Formula 1. 

Hamilton is unsure why he receives so many hate comments: "Why do they say all of that and why does everyone say that I'm a rapper, I'm a singer and love R'n'B?" 

The triple world champion spends a lot of his spare time exploring the art of music, and has well-developed friendships with successful artists like Drake and Pharrell. He also said he once played his music for Kanye West: "He's a legend in the music industry, the sweat broke through me and I was nervous," said Hamilton. 

There is of course, more to life to these drivers than Formula 1, which Hamilton addressed: "My life is not just about Formula 1. When I stop in the sport then I will start my search for a challenge in other areas."
