The single-seaters Formula 1 They reach an average maximum speed of 372 kilometers per hour, something unthinkable for the vehicles that circulate on the streets of the world every day.

A fact that matters little to the British Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamiltonwho in an interview for Vanity Fail, where he acknowledged his discomfort when going out on the streets and driving.

Hamilton, the seven-time world champion added that he finds the presence of pedestrians, traffic lights and signs confusing and stressful.

“I just think I find it stressful. I try not to do things that don’t add to my life,” she explained.

The British driver, who accepted the interview while driving, stated that staying behind the wheel on the circuits is different because of the passion that unites him with the sport.

“This is now stressful for me. This trail is crazy. So many things going on here. I’ll turn around in a second. And in terms of the fear factor that’s easy for me. I guess we are all wired differently,” she concluded.
