Lewis Hamilton's Cars
Despite having a vast car collection including a bespoke Pagani Zonda, a Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1, Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and two Shelby Cobras, his own concerns over the state of the environment around the world and aiming to align with his aim to reduce his own personal carbon footprint led Hamilton to reveal in 2020 that he currently drives a battery-electric Mercedes-Benz EQC, whilst requesting transportation from airports in all-electric vehicles where possible.
Hamilton has aided the development of the Mercedes-Benz Project One hypercar and has entered a team - X44 - into the Extreme E off-road series, which aims to take rally-style racing to environmentally impacted locations around the world to raise awareness of the effects of climate change.
Lewis Hamilton's Parents
Hamilton's relationship with Father Anthony has repaired itself in recent years after a fallout at the beginning of the previous decade.
Hamilton Sr worked multiple jobs to help Hamilton Jr set-off on his Karting career, before eventually managing his son during the infancy of his Formula 1 career.
However, this relationship broke down in 2010, with neither party on good terms with each other when the management concluded. An Instagram post by Hamilton in 2020 seemed to show the fissures has been somewhat repaired with a picture of the two on holiday alone, whilst Anthony has been more prominent in the paddock in recent times supporting his son.
Hamilton's parents split when he was young and he lived with his mother Carmen Larbalestier until he was 12 years old.

Lewis Hamilton's Helmet
Hamilton's early F1 helmets were based on the design of his racing idol Ayrton Senna's helmet, with yellow, blue, green and red prominent on the design.
Over the years, this design has evolved to switch from the yellow base to white, and more recently purple.
Last season, black became more prominent as Hamilton and his Mercedes team strived for a more diverse sport.
