We are a few hours away from qualifying for the Azerbaijan main race, but the man from Stevenage, Lewis Hamilton had ‘big-bro’ duties to perform before going racing.
A devoted family man, Hamilton, on his days of loves to spend time jumping into pools as a part of uncle’s duties or even learning to braid at times spent the last few days of the Spring break cheering his brother, Nicolas Hamilton. But how did he do that without attracting any attention to himself?
The Mercedes driver, known for his out-of-the-box fashion choices, went to Donington Park Circuit in disguise.
Going incognito was perhaps the only way for the British heartthrob to not attract any attention and simply enjoy racing at the same track he went racing for F3 or Formula-Renault.
Already a fan of puffer jackets, the man wore a face mask, a black-hooded long puffer jacket, and it probably worked for him.
“He supported me all the way so it was really cool to be on the other end”

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said, “I went incognito–it was really cool to sit there and watch the cars.
I watched it when I was younger–Standing there near the second to last turn, it started to rain, and seeing that he started in the pitlane and him coming out up to fifth. I was jumping up and down.
It was really cool because my brother has been to all my karting races and he has supported me all the way but it was really cool to be on the other end and just be there as a racing fan.”
Definitely a proud brother, Lewis couldn’t stop gushing over his brother’s career-best finish. But the loving fans found another thing more intriguing.
An “incredibly grateful” Hamilton went to see his brother in action. A big long break post-Australian GP helped the champion to go cheer for his brother.
Gushing over the fact that Nic didn’t have much practice and yet he put in such a commendable result, the Silver Arrows driver seemed like a happy man.
But the fans had other plans as despite calling this bond “sweet” they went on to make fun of Lewis’ sleeping bag-like disguise.
But the bond of the Hamilton brother struck a different chord with onlookers. And Lewis, who has constantly been posting about his brother’s spectacular driver despite his disability obstacle. And the internet has hailed him as a loving brother.
Nicolas Hamilton recently got featured on the cover of British Vogue and he told his story to the entire world about how he overcame the worst obstacles to go racing, and perhaps this is the reason why Lewis is such a proud brother.
