Formula 1 star, Lewis Hamilton disguises himself to prank school pupils on F1 Mercedes HQ visit.

Formula 1 driver, Lewis Hamilton was unrecognisable after he disguised in an elaborate latex mask to prank school pupils on a visit to the F1 Mercedes HQ .

The 36-year-old wore a grey beard and wrinkles, which made students think he was an ageing Mercedes employee.

The three primary school pupils – all aspiring engineers were on a visit to the F1 Mercedes HQ in Brackley, Northamptonshire.

Pointing to his car, he said: ‘This Lewis’s car. Nobody touches this car.’ Then the seven-time world champion pulled off his disguise to the shock and delight of the pupils, and told them: ‘Well, you know, the reason I’m allowed to touch that is because I’m Lewis.’

The racing superstar sat down with the children afterwards and stressed the importance of a positive mental attitude.


He told them: ‘Education, I know, is key for every child’.
‘There are a lot of youngsters who don’t realise that being an engineer, for example, is an avenue that they can go down,’ he added.
