The Formula 1 champion has announced the creation of a team for the 100% electric off road category that fights against climate change.


Lewis Hamilton has a new hobby: Extreme E. This championship, founded last year by Alejandro Agag to raise awareness about the impact of human beings on climate change, announced on Tuesday that the Formula 1 champion will complete the grid of this category off -100% electric road with its own racing team.

Hamilton, who will not be behind the wheel of the 550-horsepower Odyssey 21 E-SUV in any of the five events that make up the 2021 calendar, will try to put his accumulated experience in the 'Great Circus' into practice to guide him to victory to the X44 in a competition where the Spanish representation will be in charge of the QEV Technologies team.

"It is a new project, it will be fun to have a different role than the pilot. Having my own team is a totally new challenge for me, but I am very excited. The most attractive thing is that the Extreme E will not only raise awareness about some of the the most critical environmental issues facing our planet, but will also do something about it by working with local charities. It means so much to me that I can use my passion for racing, along with my love for our planet, to make a positive impact. " , has pointed out Lewis Hamilton.

“We are delighted to welcome Lewis Hamilton and his X44 team to Extreme E. Like us, Lewis is passionate about motorsports, but he also shares our belief that we can use sport to highlight issues that are vital to the world. like climate change and equality. Lewis is one of the most successful drivers of all time, and we are all excited to see how his X44 team performs on and off the track under his incredible leadership. A big welcome to the Extreme E Lewis family! "Said Alejandro Agag.

It should be remembered that the line-ups will have to be made up of a man and a woman, who must complete a lap of ten minutes before exchanging their seat with the other member who will act as co-driver, in an attempt to ensure that talent and skill are the only ones elements that determine the battle for victory
