Lewis Hamilton, the former 7-time F1 world champion, has a huge fan following all over the world. While he has done immense work on and off track, he has recently admitted that he aspired to be like Muhammad Ali and Nelson Mandela.

During his prime years, Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) was a prolific boxer but gained tremendous applause worldwide for his work for humanitarian and social causes. Nelson Mandela (1918-2013), on the other hand, came into the limelight for leading the resistance to South Africa’s policy of apartheid in the 20th century.
