Lewis Hamilton tells a funny story on how he tried every drink he has been serving while working as a bartender at 17 years old.

In an interview with Fox Sport Australia, Lewis Hamilton revealed how he got “absolutely hammered” while working at a bar when he was 17 years old.

“I’ve never been into pubs,” the Briton said.

“I worked at one when I was 17. I was a bartender. I think I was getting like £3.50 an hour or something ridiculous like that. It was minimum wage.

“It was a good experience. The best part was when I quit. On the last day, I cleaned up the bar and I was like, ‘what are these drinks that I’ve been giving everyone?’

“I tried everything and my dad had to come and pick me up! I was absolutely hammered.

“I tried a little bit of everything,” Hamilton concluded.
