The 7-times world champion doesn’t just have an interest in the world of racing, but also in fashion and music. The former is heavily featured on his Instagram. After the United States Grand Prix in Texas, the next destination on Hamilton’s calendar was New York.

The Mercedes driver was doing a photoshoot with the Wall Street Journal, as he is going to be the face of the magazine for this month’s issue. In behind the scenes of the shoot, Hamilton can be seen wearing an all-white outfit, while driving a Tarform motorcycle.

However, in another video, it was quite the contrast. This time Lewis was wearing an all-black outfit with sunglasses while taking the same Tarform motorcycle for a short ride.

Additionally, Hamilton was also wearing an all-brown outfit as part of the photoshoot. While the wind was blowing in the background, Hamilton was standing in front of a white backdrop, trying to get some shots for the magazine.

Hamilton was preparing for another battle against arch-rival, Max Verstappen at the Circuit of The Americas. The Knight was trailing in the title race against the Dutch driver by six points, but was hoping to bridge the gap at the United States Grand Prix.

However, even though Hamilton pushed the Red Bull prodigy to the limit, he failed to beat him. Verstappen grabbed another win this season, that saw him extend his lead to twelve points in the championship.
