  • Nicolas is the brother of three-time F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton.
  • Just to explode a few myths, he is not simply gifted his racing activity on a plate - in fact he takes great pride in working hard on his own to make it happen...
  • He is a handling consultant on the globally popular video racing game Project CARS.
  • Nicolas was born with Cerebral Palsy and his determination to succeed as a racing driver makes him a real inspiration for others.
  • He races with modifications to the cockpit of his UK Clio Cup - chiefly he uses a hand-controlled clutch.
  • He probably has the firmest grip of any driver on the grid - try shaking his hand!
