British driver Lewis Hamilton, seven-time Formula 1 World Champion, revealed that he tries not to drive like a normal citizen, on streets or routes, because he finds it stressful.

In a report made by the American magazine Vanity Fair, Hamilton showed an aspect that goes unnoticed by everyone by admitting that he does not drive a car like an ordinary person.

“I find driving down the street stressful, I try not to do things that do not add to my life,” explained the 37-year-old Englishman who was F1 world champion in 2008, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.

It was strange that part of the interview was done while he was driving, although in the middle of it he said: “This is now stressful for me. This trail is crazy. There’s a lot going on here, I’m going to stop for a second.”

The British pilot assumed that his situation is not understood by a large part of his admirers when he pointed out: “People tell me ‘Dude! You drive at 320 kilometers per hour!!!” but in terms of the fear factor, that’s easy for me. I guess we’re all made differently.”
