Reigning F1 champion Lewis Hamilton is known to go that extra mile to interact with his global fans. In 2019, he dedicated his Spanish Grand Prix victory to a five-year-old cancer survivor and further organized an F1 car to be taken to his home.
Yesterday, this world record holder for most F1 wins took to Twitter while reacting to his staggering fan-made portrait. A fan named Patricia posted the sketch on Twitter and asked for feedback from Lewis Hamilton and his fans.

The British driver then responded to the post with a ‘mind-blowing’ emoji. Since then, the post has received more than 6k likes and 300 retweets.
Lewis Hamilton and his inviolable bond with his global fans
Lewis Hamilton shares a strong bond with his international fans, and this gesture comes as a perfect reflection of the same fact. Two years back, Lewis Hamilton surprised a five-year-old UK boy with a rare form of terminal bone cancer by carrying a Formula One car( along with an F1 trophy) to his home.
Being a fan of Hamilton, the boy just wished to listen to the vroom sound from the F1 car. He then sent a good luck message to the British driver on Instagram from his hospital bed.
In 2017, this ‘Billion Dollar man’ once again took time from his race day schedule to sign autographs for his Chinese fans during the Beijing grand Prix. He recently showed his support for the ‘Black lives matter’ movement while taking a knee during one of his races.
On the other side, the fans never fail to reciprocate the love and support received from the British driver. When rumors came out regarding Mercedes’s break up with Lewis over a contract extension recently, thousands of fans took to Twitter to criticize the F1 team.
Hence, we can deem this love affair between the legendary F1 driver and his global fans as ‘special’ in every term.
