Watch Will Smith Hold Lewis Hamilton ‘Hostage’ Before Grand Prix Race in Abu Dhabi


There’s an obvious bromance brewing between Grand Prix racer Lewis Hamilton and actor Will Smith as the two have been passing messages back and forth on social media for a while now.

In a recent video uploaded to Hamilton’s Twitter, we see a fan-crazed Smith holding his favourite driver hostage before the race in Abu Dhabi so he could take his place.

This isn’t the first time Will has made fun of taking credit for Hamilton’s wins, he recently sent a pre-recorded message to Hamilton when the F1 driver won the championship in Mexico City. The message was played over his radio channel and said: “Hey Lewis, congrats man! That’s how you do it, baby! Just like I taught you! That’s how that’s how you do it! Just like that! That’s how you are supposed to drive!”

Lewis and Smith have been chatting for five years since the Monte Carlo Grand Prix and in Abu Dhabi they first time we ever met. Will Smith also went viral earlier this year when he posted a video congratulating his son Jaden on his 1 million Spotify hits, the video was also a parody of Jaden which can be also be watched below.
