SHANGHAI: Lewis Hamilton is the hottest property in Formula One and in constant demand but insists he has not changed, though sometimes he craves a return to normal life.
The 23-year-old Briton, on the cusp of becoming the youngest Formula One world champion ever, believes he has not been affected by fame and fortune.
“I feel I have that area of my life under control,” he said on his website.
“I don’t see myself as a celebrity, I feel I’m the same guy I was before I got to F1 just more measured, maybe.
Asked if he would like to return to the life he led before being thrust into the big-time during his rookie season last year, he replied: “Oh yeah!
“There have been many times when I wished I could go back and be on the same journey but go and experience it all again. I wish I could do it all again.” AFP
