So I lured Hamilton into the Extreme E.
Lewis Hamilton becomes team boss! Exactly, you read that right. The Schumacher record hunter of Formula 1 founds his own racing team.
Lewis Hamilton is there with his own team X44
Because the series not only shows the places that are particularly affected by climate change. It helps the regions specifically in the fight against destruction. Agag: “Lewis is particularly interested in our legacy program. Because we are actively doing something for the environment. We drive in the rain forest, then plant 200 hectares of forest. We drive on the beach, then we clean it of plastic. Many only talk about environmental degradation, we are doing something about it. Lewis likes that. “
With his own team he can combine his struggle for environmental protection and his passion for motorsport. “One example is Greenland,” says Agag. “I’ve been there many times now – and every time the streams of water get bigger. The glaciers are melting and you can watch them. We can draw attention to this with our sport. And that’s the only reason Lewis is there. “
Not quite. Because the Extreme E also convinced Hamilton with its sporty format. Background: A car is driven by a man and a woman. Agag: “Lewis fights for diversity and equality. We also do this by having our teams made up of a man and a woman. Everyone drives a lap, so both are equally important for victory. “
The races are like a tournament. One car is allowed per team. Then man against man and woman against woman on a ten kilometer long course. The fastest gets ahead.
Just like Lewis Hamilton.
