Lewis Hamilton Wants to Open A Museum Dedicated to Himself

Lewis Hamilton Wants to Open A Museum Dedicated to Himself

Lewis Hamilton wants to open a museum about, well, Lewis Hamilton.

The Formula One megastar has revealed this grand plans to open his very own museum to display all the trophies he's collected throughout his decorated career.

British driver Hamilton recently broke the legendary Michael Schumacher's record for the most F1 podiums following his win at the Spanish Grand Prix.

His 88 total wins now puts him just three victories away from equalling Schumacher's record of 91.

And with six Formula One Championships to his name, Hamilton is on the brink of matching the German's seven if he continues on his prolific run of form this season.

But even though Hamilton is still in the prime of his career, he's wasted no time in declaring his plans to open a museum to display his trophies and past cars.

"It's funny, I've won all of these trophies and not one of them is at home," Hamilton told German newspaper Bild.

"The cups from racing are all stored. And when I say they are in storage, it doesn't mean they are in boxes in the basement. They are in a private place.

"I don't drive for the trophies. I don't drive for records. I drive because I love it. That's how I am.

"If you came to my house, you wouldn't see that I ever won a race. What I would like to do is put all of them on display in a museum.

"My fans support me in everything I do, so they can look at all the trophies. It might cost a pound to enter, which will then be donated to charity, so everyone would benefit from it."

And while he'll undoubtedly be needing a large trophy cabinet, the former McLaren and current Mercedes star also hopes the museum can show off his growing collection of cars.

"They are the most important companions on my journey," Hamilton said.

"They are like rockets that go into space and then, when they come back, are exhibited in a museum.

"I associate special memories with all of my world championship cars, it's a very personal relationship that you build up over a season. But I don't have any of them in my garage anywhere. Some of my race cars do belong to me, they're all still with my team.

"It would be great if they could be part of my museum. Starting with my karts from back then, and then perhaps in a row the evolution of all my racing cars, as they do in the Mercedes Museum in Stuttgart.

"Plus all my racing suits, the helmets - Oh, I have so many ideas. It's going to be a big project, I'll have to see how I go about it."
