His fans have been uploading support messages from all over the world and Hamilton has been sharing them on his official YouTube account.
“I’m doing something really special with my fans this week. We’re making a series of mini documentaries about their experiences leading up to the race.We’ve built a mobile app that gives out film challenges and then records and sends us footage, so the fans really are the directors.
We’ve been releasing the videos on social media over the week and will have a final short film soon after the end of the season. #TeamLHMovie will be a celebration of all my fans all over the world, who experience the race week with me.
A complete fan documentary is due after the race on Sunday.
