Lewis Hamilton answers school kids’ questions about vacation, music, being a NASA scientist, and women’s diversity in F1.

In 2020, Mercedes announced an innovative partnership with Mulberry School trust. Together they launched the Mulberry STEM Academy.

This program provides an extra-curricular program in science, technology, engineering, and maths education. The school-going kids got to ask the seven-time world champion some questions related to F1.

Let us look at some of them below:

Lewis Hamilton on diversity in Formula One

Continuing on the subject of equality and women’s involvement in the sport, Nyela asked the Briton for ways F1 can attract more women to the sport.

The Seven times World champion explained that F1 is a male dominant sport. Be it on the engineering side or the driver side, there is a huge lack of diversity in the sport. Hamilton is helping by spreading awareness to the hiring managers to sign women in the sport.

On Track to Vacation

Mimi inquired if the Briton gets weary of racing all the time. Hamilton went over all of the different off-track things with her.

Nonetheless, he stated that an F1 driver’s life is more than just driving the car. The drivers participate in commercial picture sessions, and race trips, and assist the team with vehicle development. Furthermore, Hamilton stated that driving on tracks is similar to “going to a new theme park every weekend and riding a new rollercoaster.”

Musician or NASA scientist?

In an alternate universe, Hamilton could have been a great musician perhaps? Hamilton revealed that he has excelled in athletics since childhood and that his love of music may have led him to a career as a singer.

However, he also mentioned that if he were exceptionally clever and possessed a plethora of degrees, he would have worked for Nasa. We are with you Amaari, imagining Hamilton at either of the places.

Afrin enquired when Hamilton was 12 if he could take part in the STEM academy. Without a doubt, if STEM subjects were a part of Hamilton’s life when he was 12, he would have become a better engineer. Hamilton was racing and did not have the opportunities. He went on to say that STEM disciplines would have helped him become a “better driver.”
