Lewis Hamilton has established himself as one of the greatest drivers in F1 history. After tying the legendary Michael Schumacher’s record of winning the most F1 championships, his career can only go on an upwards trajectory from here.
However, the British superstar has been through a long and treacherous journey that got him to the pinnacle of his sport.
Hamilton Opens Up About His Dyslexia
In a video uploaded to The Straits Times YouTube channel, Hamilton opened up about his academic struggles. He revealed that his work was made infinitely harder because of his dyslexia and that his commitment to driving hindered his progress in school.
“I discovered I was dyslexic when I was 17. And that was really difficult for me to overcome. I was spending three days at school. I’d be in detention all Monday because I took the weekend off. My headmaster did not support my career.”
