“I think he’s just an amazing lad and I love to do things for him. Nicholas loves a challenge and he’s got steeper challenges ahead of him. He’s 7 years younger than me and he has a great character, he might’ve cerebral palsy but he definitely wants to do something special with his life.”

“My brother has been with me every step of the way. Few people have believed in me more than Nicolas. I’m so grateful for the blessing he is in my life and so happy to share this moment with him. Our smiles”

Hamilton went undercover support for brother Nicolas’ 6th place finish

Lewis Hamilton was spotted at one of his brother’s races in April. He wore a face mask so that no one would recognize him, but he made sure he was there to support Nicholas. Nicholas came in to finish in 6th place, but he wasn’t prepared for what was about to come next.

Lewis Hamilton went on to post on his social media about his little adventure and acclaimed his younger brother’s results. He applauded Nicholas for what he had achieved and motivated him to continue further. “I haven’t been to Donington in a long time. I was so excited to watch and support my brother there today as a normal spectator, it felt really special. I’m so proud of you bro, 6th place today was such a special result and you truly deserve it. Keep pushing.”

Nicholas Hamilton has denied time and again about his brother’s involvement in his career and Lewis wanted to respect that while being undercover as a spectator. It was a wholesome moment for the brothers, and now Lewis needs his optimism and support because he has declared his intentions to get his eighth title.
