Lewis Hamilton has reached the level of greatness when it comes to winning championships in Formula 1 racing. He has seven titles to his name and the Briton has a lot more to offer. Even at the age of 37 years, Hamilton looks more fit and agile than any of his younger competitors. But was this success achieved just because of his “born talent”? Does not sound like a possible thing.
And a 30-year-old video is enough to prove that. The video shows how this great was made. In the video going viral on the internet, a 7-year-old kid is seen owning the racetrack with his remote-control car. The kid seems way too ahead of his competitors with his fiery eyes set on winning the race. His hands look like a robot’s controlling the remote.
And not to anyone’s surprise, the 7-year-old kid is none other than the seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton. The video is shared by a user named “RJ Young” who wrote, “Please enjoy this delightful 7-year-old named Lewis Hamilton racing his remote-control car.” in the caption.

Lewis on verge of becoming the greatest
Looking at this video, one can easily understand where Lewis gets inspiration from. At such young age, the hunger to win and the focus on the task ahead built a solid foundation for one of the best drivers in the history of F1. Although Hamilton had a heartbreak when he was denied his record eighth title by just one lap at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, he is determined to do well. He is not far from becoming the greatest to have raced on the grid. And there is no surprise that the Mercedes driver considers his life difficult without racing. In a recent interaction with the media, Hamilton said, “It’s difficult to imagine life without racing.”
