Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton is well known for being able to handle high speeds, but he’s also an expert at skydiving as this video shot in Dubai proves.
In a clip posted on his Instagram page, you can see Lewis Hamilton jumping solo out of a plane over Dubai. He tumbles out of the plane in a roll three times before he starts doing some incredible flips, stunts, and tricks in front of his cameraman who appears to be guiding him.
Hamilton then salutes the camera before releasing his parachute.
‘I’ve been learning to sky dive over the past couple years,’ says Hamilton on his caption.
‘It’s one of my favourite things to do in my spare time. This me trying for the first time flying on my back of which I was useless at lol. After this I went to spend time in the wind tunnel to practice. I’ll post that next to show you my progression. 🤘🏾’
Fair play Lewis, fair play.
As well as nailing skydiving, the thrill-seeking racing champion is also a pretty handy surfer.
But, as he told The Sun a few years ago, he’s pretty aware that his love for extreme sports might land him in trouble!
“My family give me stick all the time about my extreme sports,” he told The Sun in 2017. “I have a responsibility to my team and sponsors who work hard – I would not jeopardise that. F1 means too much to me, there’s a very big difference between having fun and taking unnecessary risks.”
