Lewis Hamilton says as a kid he never thought he would have supporters other than his “mum and dad”, and adds he was “very overwhelmed” when he noticed his first supporter.

In a recent Mercedes YouTube video, where Lewis Hamilton reacted to comments from his fans and supporters, he revealed that as a kid he never thought he would have fans who support him.

“It’s been beautiful to see people who have known me, somehow followed me before I even got to Formula One, and then people who started the journey with me in 2007,” the Briton said.

“And even for those who have joined along the way I love how this sport unites us and this journey has brought us together.

“I never ever actually thought, when I was growing up in Stevenage and playing around the corner in the park, I never thought I’d have a follower other than my mum, a supporter other than my mum or my dad.

“Then when I saw the first one in 2007 I was very overwhelmed just by the first person that [I] noticed supporting me and that’s grown over time so I’m so grateful,” Hamilton concluded.
