In 2020 Lewis equalled Michael Schumacher’s seven world titles record and is now on the brink of surpassing that unbelievable achievement. Anthony, however, says this is not his primary motivation for continuing.

“It’s nothing to do with targets. He’s not racing for trophies, he races because he loves what he does and also he loves to inspire others.

“At the moment his achievements, we hope, are inspiring young kids who have a dreams they want to achieve.

“As far as Lewis is concerned, and we as a family as well, it really is about hope, opportunity, dreams, achievements, and not so much targets,” concluded Lewis’ dad.
