Ahead of the season-ending 2017 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Mercedes-AMG Petronas driver and four-time world drivers’ champion, Lewis Hamilton, reflects on the differences that set him apart as a Formula One driver.

This film, released as part of Mercedes-AMG Petronas team partner UBS’ ‘The Value of Difference’ series, sees Lewis explore a vast, cinematic studio set, taking his cues from evocative and stylish videos and images to open up and discuss the challenges he has faced in his career.

From the Hamilton family’s struggles to afford their son’s fledgling go-karting career and the doubters who told Lewis he would never be a success, to how Lewis stays motivated to keep learning and improving – this thoughtful and insightful film offers a rare opportunity to step inside the mind of one of the world’s most high-profile and successful athletes.
