Lewis Hamilton is arguably the greatest Formula 1 driver to ever grace the paddock. The 7x champion has time and again shown us his massive talent behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car. However, when a man is this talented, it isn’t uncommon to see other skills that become just a secondary trait. That being said, the 38-year-old has a diverse set of hobbies and interests, and it would appear that he spectacularly excels at them all.

Snowboarder, Jamie Lynn is a legend in his own respect. In the world of snowboarding, he is regarded as highly as Hamilton is in the world of motorsport. Hence, when the man himself is in awe of someone trying his hand at his bread and butter, then the guy must be good. Recently, Lynn was describing the moment when Lewis Hamilton got the GOAT of snowboarding with his jaw dropped.
