Lewis Hamilton helped make his brother Nicolas’ “dream come true”, as he became “the first disabled person to ever” drive a Formula 1 simulator.

Lewis Hamilton has posted a series of photos on his Instagram of his brother Nicolas driving in Mercedes’ simulator in Brackley, which has been his wish for a long time.

As Nicolas was born with cerebral palsy, to be able to do so there were some obstacles he needed to overcome, and Lewis helped him do it.

In the caption of his Instagram post, Lewis wrote:

“Earlier this year [Nicolas] and I asked my team if we could make this happen and here we are.

“Time in the sim is incredibly rare, and not something that is accessible for someone like my brother. It took custom modifications to the seat, steering wheel and pedals to make this possible.

“[Nicolas] spent the whole day in it, and is the first disabled person to ever do so. He’s always been a fighter and seeing him have this day is an honour.

“The smile you see here never left his face. Can’t wait to share more of this special day.

“Thank you [Mercedes] for the time and work put in to make this possible and make my brother’s dream come true,” Hamilton concluded.
