British racing driver, Lewis Hamilton, who finished third at the recently concluded British Grand Prix has gained the limelight due to his off-field interactions with the reporter. The viral video on Twitter has amassed close to 3 Lakh views, with 13,000 Likes and 2300 retweets.

The reporter starts the question by saying, “You were the fastest car by some measures, you were the fastest car on the Silverstone in the race on Sunday”. Hamilton was quick to reply, “Driver You mean?”. The video has attracted varied reactions from the people, but most of them acknowledged his ability to stun reporters with his replies.
