Lewis Hamilton On F1’s High-Tech Cars, Desire To Race In NASCAR

F1 driver Lewis Hamilton appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last night and said that he was unsure of what an F1 car was worth, as "not many people buy them."

Hamilton: "There are a lot of people on the team for two cars. We have 1,300 people to build those two cars. It's like the most high-tech (car). We could build a space rocket to send to outer space. It's crazy."

Kimmel brought up a picture of Hamilton on the awards podium after winning the Russian Grand Prix spraying Russian President Vladimir Putin with champagne.

Kimmel: "As crazy as racing is, and the high speeds you guys go, this might be the craziest thing you've ever done."

Hamilton said of NASCAR, "I love cars in general. I went to watch Jeff Gordon just recently in Miami, his last race. I never really go to race to watch, I'm always driving. I was sitting there and I was like, ‘Where's my car?'

I just wanted to get out." Hamilton said he would love to do NASCAR, but "I wish racing wasn't so restricted. I wish I could do Formula 1 and then hop over and do a couple street races."

Kimmel said, "You've got a plane, you can hop over wherever you want to" "Jimmy Kimmel Live," ABC
