Lewis Hamilton looks like future champion in brilliant throwback picture of F1 legend as a kid

LEWIS HAMILTON has left fans in a spin after sharing a throwback of himself as a super-cool kid.

The 37-year-old posted the snap of a young go-karting star, looking straight at the camera in a pair of dark shades.


It is next to an image of Hamilton in modern times, sporting his Mercedes racing overalls with a pair of sunglasses on.

The F1 legend captioned it: "At the end of the day, still that same kid."

Fans gushed over the photos of their hero looking cool in the classic pose.

One user replied: "THE KING".

And Sir Lewis hasn't needed to change, having been the youngest driver ever to win the British karting championship at the age of ten.
