Lewis Hamilton is a man of many talents

Hamilton, making an appearance back in 2015 with American comedian Chris Hardwick, surprised us all. Lewis took the traveling circus term to the heart and agreed to perform an act at the show. What surprised everyone, including the host Corden, is that Lewis can unicycle. And the story behind the Mercedes man, why he learned how to unicycle, tells you why is a seven-time champion.

“When I was carting, there was this other kid that did it and everyone was focusing on him and I was like I can do that,” told Lewis. To which Cordon sarcastically added, “Not like Lewis can be competitive” which tells you exactly the nature one needs to become one of the best in the sport.

However, Corden pulled out a unicycle, and the pair stayed true to the promise and Lewis Hamilton unicycled on the Late Late Show With James Corden.
