Lewis Hamilton is getting his own documentary on Apple TV+

Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton is getting his own special feature on Apple TV+.

In a statement, Apple TV+ said that the documentary will focus on Hamilton and his team both on and off the track. It will also feature an all-star cast of guest interviews.

British F1 racer Lewis Hamilton is widely hailed as one of the greatest racers of all time. His seven world championships are tied to one of the most popular F1 racers, Michael Schumacher.

Hamilton has had an inspiring life. Rising from a working-class family, he made his name in a sport where both success and failure are rapid. He has been very active in his support for the Black Lives Matter movement. As such, his victories are special to millions around the world who regularly fight against racism in all spheres of life.

As such, Hamilton’s life is professionally, socially and culturally significant for the world.

Apple TV+ said that Hamilton “embraced what made him different and his rise to the top of his career has made him fiercely committed to using his platform to influence positive change for future generations.”
