Will going to the Met Gala affect Hamilton’s title race?
You might be wondering why Hamilton flew to New York during the pandemic and The most intense world championship in years.
In recent years, the Brit has added a role to fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger. But despite his increased off-track activity, that hasn’t deterred Hamilton from getting involved.
The most famous example was in 2018, after Hamilton won the Italian Grand Prix at Monza.
There’s a two-week break before the next race in Singapore – a track where Mercedes has historically struggled.
He competed in Shanghai, New York and London before flying to Singapore.
This raised questions about his focus and lifestyle, but Hamilton answered in the most depressing way possible.
After struggling early in qualifying, he completed one of the best pole laps ever in the first round of the final stretch.
