Hamilton: I want to be remembered as a game changer

The seven-time world champion will go down as one of the greatest drivers of all time, but it is for his work away from the track that he wants to be best remembered for.

Lewis Hamilton has been reflecting on what his legacy will be once he retires from F1, claiming that he simply wants to be remembered as a game-changer. The 36-year-old is about to begin his 15th season in the championship, which many are speculating could be his last. However, when all is said and done, how does the seven-time world champion want to be remembered as a racer - and indeed as a man? "I don't really know. I haven't really thought about it. Maybe Game Changer, voice for equality or something like that," The British driver told Sky Sports F1. Affairs away from the track are becoming increasingly important to Lewis, who is pushing to try and increase diversity within Formula 1. "For one of the very few people of colour within our sport, to be able to voice out your feelings and be open about experiences, you've had to not be sure - because of the backlash that might come from that if it's interpreted the wrong way," Hamilton stated. "And now we live in a space where we can be more open about it. No one has the right to tell us to shut up anymore. And I think that's super empowering."
