Lewis Hamilton is a style icon, an artist and a great lover of art, but also of cinema and music. In an interview with Style Magazine, the British Mercedes driver talked about many topics, including cinema and music.
Hamilton said: "My dream would be to star in Interstellar 2.
But I don't think Christopher Nolan will do it… I said to him: Please tell me you're doing another one. But I don't think it will happen. That said, Interstellar is one of my favorite movies. I love space. And I still can't believe it didn't win all the awards it deserved."
Regarding music, the Briton said: "I listen to a lot of music.
If I had to choose just one artist to listen to all my life it would be Bob Marley. Today, however, I listen to everything. I am constantly inspired by Frank Ocean, Drake, but also by artists older ones like DMX."
Hamilton halso talkes about his passion for watches
Hamilton also talked about his great passion for watches, explaining: "I have always loved watches.
Even as a child. Until the age of 22, when I turned professional and received my first salary, I was unable to have fancy watches. When I was still a kid I remember buying a £15 watch but with a faux leather strap. I wore a blazer to school and would often roll up the sleeve, I wanted my friends to see how good it was." This year in Miami, Hamilton wore a special Pilot's Watch Chronograph 41 Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team with two rubber straps, in green and Miami Pink.
The Mercedes driver said about: "Yes. It's the team watch. And it's so beautiful! My engineers also wore it, even though they always stopped me from wearing those colors. This watch took everyone out of their own comfort zone, made of simpler colors.
I think it's quite interesting how we're trying to push ourselves and do something different.
IWC Portugieser Tourbillon Rétrograde Chronograph Lewis? Yes, this is my third watch. I remember when we first made a Tourbillon watch it was more about just putting my name on it.
I couldn't take part in the creative process at that time. I proposed changes and details, but there was no way to do anything. So I thought: Ok, next time we will have more time to make it evolve more. I liked the second one a lot and I felt that the whole process that was born wasn't done with just anyone, or at least with any Formula 1 driver. For this third watch I thought the Tourbillon was just what I wanted."
