Lewis Hamilton posted a video on his Instagram profile in which he enjoys playing tennis with his father. Or rather it would be more correct to say, try to play tennis, because the performances that the phenomenon of the F1 has put on the court are light years away from his prowess behind the wheel.
But Hamilton, winner of the 2020 Formula 1 world championship with his Mercedes, is not one who gives up easily, he wants to learn to play tennis and his message on Instagram with which he accompanied the video is clear: "My father and I are not good at tennis, but we are trying to improve.
I always use a short ball to hit him and he always falls for it. Now he learned it and he finally won me today. When people ask me, how will you celebrate? I always reply that we have a life to celebrate and spending time with family is the way I like best to do it."
Lewis Hamilton with the victory of the last world championship equaled the record of seven world championships won by Michael Schumacher, his great idol and driver to whom the Briton dedicated his 90th career victory.

Lewis, along with tennis players Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka, have defended the community of color for Black Lives Matter, after what has happened in the US in recent months, especially after the outrage caused by the horrific killing of George Floyd.
Serena has long been targeted by racist comments and is now committed to helping women, especially those from the black community. Osaka, during the US Open when she wore 7 different masks during the event with the names of 7 victims of racism.
However, Naomi and Serena had very amused reactions to the video of Hamilton playing tennis. The Briton said in the Instagram post: "So my dad and I are not good at tennis, but we're trying to improve. I always use a slice to beat him and he always falls for it.
Now he learned it and he finally got me today. When people ask me, how are you going to celebrate? We have a life to celebrate and spending time with family is the way I celebrate. #Familyiseverything #dad @serenawilliams HELP!
" Both Naomi and Serena commented on the video. Naomi said, "You have to start training, you can't let your dad kill you like that." After Lewis asked for help, Serena simply replied: "Dying laughing !!!!!!!!!
