Lewis Hamilton laughed off a suggestion by Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff to play AC/DC in the garage every time before the cars head out on track.

Wolff was the subject on a recent episode of the longtime BBC show Desert Island Discs, when he was asked if him and Hamilton had the same music taste.

While the pair share broadly the same music interests, the seven-time world champion scoffed when Wolff suggested the idea of playing a song every time to get the mechanics in a mood before a session start.

Wolff: Not up his street

"Not always, the drivers have the rooms next to me at the tracks and I hear him singing when preparing for the races," said Wolff.

"I think most often we have similar music tastes, obviously his is much more sophisticated.

"But many years ago I said to him 'What would you think if we played AC/DC Thunderstruck by AC/DC in the garage before going out with the cars? In a way to have all of the mechanics listen to this and he said 'It would make me puke!' - Not up his street I guess."
