GROWING up in the shadow of a world-famous sibling cannot be easy – least of all when that person is Lewis Hamilton. And it’s been his brother Lewis who has helped him to overcome many of the obstacles, as we reveal. Nicolas spent “every weekend” travelling with his family to watch Lewis’s races around the UK and Europe when he was younger. Lewis encouraged Nicolas to go into racing at 18 after spotting how naturally talented he was on a simulator. Nicolas told The Times: “Lewis could see that I was good on a simulator. While Nicolas says his brother hasn’t financed his career in any way, he has splashed out on his sibling. In recent years, Nicolas has admitted he has been unable to follow his brother as he races around the world but remains his “No1 fan”.
