Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton rarely gets to follow other games, but he likes tennis and cricket.

“I am a fan of West Indies cricket team and I am amazed by the Indian cricket team who have such excellent batsmen in the team.”

The West Indies recently won the ICC World Twenty20 Championship in Sri Lanka.

Inspired by the vibrant colours of India, Hamilton will be sporting a specially designed helmet during the Indian Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit.

Hamilton drives for the McLaren. The McLaren last won the constructors’ title in 1998, although they would have won the 2007 championship had the team not been stripped of all their points for a scandal involving leaked Ferrari data in their possession.

“To go out on a high and help the team win the championship like that would be fantastic,” Hamilton said.
