Lewis Hamilton becomes “Grandpa Lewis” in new Allianz video

Leave a comment

The year’s 2066. The man who’s now 31 and, for the moment, hasn’t added to his three previous World Championships – Lewis Hamilton – has now been reborn as “Grandpa Lewis” some 50 years down the road from now.

At least that’s how he’s envisioned in a new Allianz ad, where the then-80-year-old Hamilton is discussing with his grandchildren how successful they can be if they follow their instincts. It’s meant to mirror how and why Allianz sponsors F1.

The video’s linked above, via Hamilton’s tweet.

Present day Hamilton is in search of his fifth win in the Canadian Grand Prix, and second in a row this season, with this weekend’s action at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal. First practice kicks off at 10 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Live Extra, then second practice at 2 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
