Tex Hollywood - July 28, 2022

Lewis Hamilton is one of the most accomplished Grand Prix driver's around, or at least one of the most famous, since the UK native spends his time surfing with the likes of Justin Bieber and instagram models,

I mean wouldn't do that if they were top race car drivers in one of the most luxurious and high profile sports (the models, not the Biber).

In a recent interview , Hamilton says that he lost over 6 pounds from a failed hydration system.

“I feel fantastic – I was just a little bit dehydrated!” he said. “The drinks bottle didn’t work in the race. I don’t actually ever drink in the race ever, so this is the first time I actually tried it all year and there was nothing coming out.”

We've all been under a heat warning the last few months, or years, and we know how important it is to stay hydrated. It's even an instagram catchphrase amongst the instagram people : "stay hydrated". So, we can only imagine just how hot it was in his cockpit, under the heat, in all his equipment, especially when you factor in that racing is a very intense and demanding sport, and quite different than your granny's Sunday drive that even she keeps herself equipped with beverages in the event she gets a little parched.

Here he is getting barreled at Surf Ranch with Kelly Slater:
