Here is thrill-seeker Lewis Hamilton's new favourite leap of faith


Earlier this year, Lewis Hamilton revealed that he had taken up another thrill-seeking, adrenalin-driven activity: skydiving!

The reigning world champion posted on Instagram a short video of him getting high above Qatar, and a few comments about his new favourite leap of faith.

"This is my fav thing to do currently," he wrote.

"The reason I sky dive is I love that there are really no limits in free fall. It’s incredible to just let your mind free, remove all doubt and any insecurities you may be feeling in life and jump.

"I think in life many of us don’t take that leap because of fear, something of which holds us back from greatness.

"You can do anything you put your mind to. I was nervous the first time but this has helped me to let go of many things and go for the things I love.

"Don’t let fear dictate your life. You can do anything you put your mind to I truly believe that🙏🏾"

Perhaps a tandem jump with Mercedes boss Toto Wolff is in order?
