Lewis Hamilton describes his home and adds “if you came to my house, you wouldn’t even know I was a racing driver”.

In an interview with Good Housekeeping Lewis Hamilton was asked what “home” means to him.

“They say home is where the heart is, so home will always be where my parents live,” the Briton said.

“But I try to make my own home feel as safe and comfortable as possible. I’ve got lots of plants because I love to stay grounded to nature, and I like having incense burning around the house.

“Fortunately, I’ve also got someone that helps me keep my place clean, otherwise it would all pile up!”

Lewis was then asked if he keeps some of his numerous trophies in his house.

“I don’t actually have any racing trophies at home – they’re all in storage! In fact, if you came to my house, you wouldn’t even know I was a racing driver.

“I have a painting of Ayrton Senna, but that’s it. My dad has a few trophies on show because he’s very proud and likes to show his friends, but for me, home is about getting away from that world.

“When you’re in the public eye, being able to have the most normal home is so important; it helps you stay centered.”

The Briton also outlined a rule he has in place when it comes to hygiene, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing.

“The rule is that everyone has to take their shoes off and then sanitise before they come in – I’ve always been a bit of a germophobe, even before the pandemic!”

It’s well known that Lewis loves music. He says speakers are of his favourite “gadgets” at home.

“Another gadget I couldn’t live without is my speakers. When I get home and play some Marvin Gaye, it takes me back to being a kid and my dad playing all the classics.

“I love a bit of Bob Marley, too – there’s never a bad time of day to listen to Bob,” concluded the seven-time champion.
