Lewis Hamilton is one of the most established names in the history of Formula 1. The British driver has won the championship seven times and still has a lot more to achieve. However, the 2022 season has been a bit harsh on the Mercedes driver as he has failed to finish at the helm in recent races. So, the seven-time champion decided to give himself a break by going skydiving, which according to him is an “ideal way to spend a Sunday”.
Hamilton shared a video of him skydiving in Dubai where he jumped ten times. The video was also shared by Joe Pompliano on Twitter with a caption: “Lewis Hamilton is the most accomplished F1 driver in the history of the sport, but he says skydiving is his “ideal way to spend a Sunday.” He jumped ten times in Dubai today.”

It’s difficult to imagine life without racing: Lewis Hamilton
Although Hamilton has not had the best of starts that he used to, he has no intention to put a brake on his career. The seven-time champion Briton driver says it is hard for him to imagine life without racing. Speaking at the International Watch Company’s Watches and Wonders exhibition, Hamilton said, “It’s difficult to imagine life without racing.”
“I was just listening to Valentino (Rossi, Moto GP legend who had joined Hamilton at the interview), and just seeing him at Imola, we’ve grown up in the space, being at those tracks,” said Hamilton talking about his career so far. “The smell, the vibration, the sound it’s difficult to imagine life without it. But at some stage, there’s going to be a period of my time where I don’t have it. But I’m sure I’m going to miss all that.” “That cocktail of all those emotions that fire up from those different elements,” he added.
