Hamilton: In Turkey, the whole life flashed before my eyes

Lewis Hamilton recalled how his life "flashed before his eyes" when he won his seventh championship title.
Lewis Hamilton: "Over the years, I have become very close to Mercedes Benz and Daimler. They were so open that in 2020 we changed the color of the car from silver to black.
I told them: "The car has always been silver, it has always been "Silver Arrows". Imagine what kind of signal we can send if we change the color of the car to black?"
And we spent the whole season with a black car. We didn't even talk about it much, we just left it as it is. And it was on this car that I won my seventh title. The emotions were incredible. To be honest, the whole life flashed before my eyes, all the struggle, all the doubts about whether it would work or not.
I crossed the finish line and said: "I did it," and I want the kids to know that they can do it too. That's what I try to do every day – instill faith in children”.
