Louis Hamilton attends Paris Fashion Week

The seven-time world champion hilariously said people should put a French spin on Lewis. “While I’m in Paris, please call me Louis.” wrote Hamilton on his post.

Tennis icon and 23-time world champion Serena Williams also jumped on the fun banter and gave her own cheeky reply.

Williams replied,” Lol hahahhaha I love this yaaas, what about Lewieeee?”

Just before leaving for Paris, Hamilton had stated in an interview that he was not sure why going to Ferrari was never his dream, despite getting the love from the Tifosi in Monza.

For many years, when I came to Monza, walking next to the fans … I could hear them saying, “Come to Ferrari!”. This warmed my heart, but it’s pretty amazing that I’ve never driven for Ferrari in so many years. Because it is a dream for anyone, a goal to be achieved. It has never really been possible and I will never quite know exactly why.

Wish them the best and in my near future, I will continue to prevent them from winning the world championship. I’ve seen photos of their drivers and red is always red. I have a couple of Ferraris at home and I can drive those, but not the Ferrari F1,” said Hamilton. (Translated via Google Translate)

There were some reports that Hamilton might end his career dressed in red, but after his latest contract extension with Merc, this looks highly unlikely.
