Plant-based

Hamilton is
a known advocate for plant-based eating and compassion for animals.

The racing
pro shared a video to Instagram made by animal rights organization Mercy for Animals,
telling his fans to 'go plant-based' - and has been very vocal about his own change in diet.

Feeling his
best

At 32, he
said:
"I feel the best I’ve ever felt physically and mentally.

"All
year I've felt very strong mentally, but I think physically I'm now taking also
a big step and that’s really the decision I made to change my diet.

"The
best decision was obviously moving to this team; the second best was changing
my diet."
