In one such instance, he attended the annual Halloween party at supermodel Heidi Klum’s house. The Mercedes driver had just won the Mexican Grand Prix in 2016 to keep his championship bid alive and after that at the Klum’s party, Hamilton went in dressed as the iconic character Joker.

He came in as the Dark Knight Heath Ledger-inspired Joker. The then three-time world champion looked unrecognizable and pulled off the clown prince of crime look really well.

Lewis Hamilton surprises kids ahead of Halloween

As reported by BBC, the British driver put on an old man’s makeup and surprised some kids who were visiting the Mercedes factory. The wealth manager and the team sponsor of the German team UPS arranged a visit for the kids to the factory.

To make himself unrecognizable in front of the kids, Hamilton spent hours doing makeup to look like an old man. The look totally surprised the three kids, who also received some motivational advice from the maestro himself.

“If I can do it, you can 100% do it,” said Hamilton to the kids.
