Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton, who also has a hand in music, was quoted recently as saying that he is eventually going to Hollywood as he fancies himself a bit of an actor. We reckon those delusions were brought on by Hamilton’s starring role in the teaser campaign for the new Mercedes AMG GT R.
