So it shouldn’t be a surprise when other celebrities are over the moon when they get a chance to meet the Mercedes driver. One such celebrity was Samuel L. Jackson.

The next race will take place on the 27th of August in Spa. This three-week break will give the world champion time to recover from the Hungarian GP and redeem himself. Hamilton will look to bag another win for the Brackley-based outfit in Belgium, and further extend his lead in the driver’s championship.
