Lewis Hamilton is “proud” to watch Sebastian Vettel, a fellow Formula One driver, become a more vocal advocate for good change.
Vettel’s interest in environmental concerns has grown in recent years, according to Ferrari team chief Mattia Binotto, and Vettel has branched out into a variety of programs to protect the environment.
Vettel did a bio-farming internship during the first lockdown, and his 2021 projects include building a bee hotel in Austria and organizing a litter-pick at Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix.
Vettel has also been open in expressing his ideas to Formula One and the nations that the championship has visited.
All of this has thrilled Hamilton, who is also known for his activism, as the two drivers try to use their platforms to make a difference in their respective causes. The two drivers have a combined 11 Drivers’ Championships.
“I’ve been incredibly proud of Sebastian for doing him,” Hamilton is quoted.
“He’s discovered things that he’s passionate about and speaking about them, and he’s not shying away from it.
“With the older generation, when we get to our age, we have more empathy. He’s got a family, he’s thinking about the future of his kids and the planet.
“He’s obviously trying to be a beacon of light for those kids and for the kids that support him. We speak often, and we talk on these topics.”
Is it possible that the two will collaborate on a future project?
At the time, Hamilton says there are no such plans, although he did confirm that they discuss about specific issues frequently over a race weekend.
“We don’t have any plans of doing anything in future, but if there is a specific issue, on a weekend, we discuss it, and we support each other,” Hamilton stated.
