The motorsport community always looks forward to a good racing movie, whether it be an animated one or not. The movie Cars is loved not just by the Formula One community, but the entire fanbase of motorsports.

In the first installment of Cars, 7-time world champion and Ferrari legend, Michael Schumacher makes an appearance. The most fitting part of the scene is that Michael is the voice of a Ferrari.

In Cars 3, Hamilton is the voice of an assistant in the British version of the movie. But, in the previous installment, he made a brief appearance as a car talking to Lightning McQueen.

Whereas, for the German and Italian edition of the movie, 4-time world champion, Vettel is the voice. And for the Spanish edition of the movie, Fernando Alonso lends his voice for the assistant.
