The Briton admitted that he secretly takes advice from Tom Brady right up to the point when he enters the F1 tracks. “Tom [Brady] and I, we’ve met a couple times and been in touch for some years now. Sometimes, I message him, trying to secretly get a bit of advice,” he told.

Tom Brady, on the other side, also carries a massive respect for the 7x F1 champ and refers Hamilton as an ‘artist’ on the racetrack.

From what SportsZion understands, these two sporting superstars wear a mutual form of respect and understanding for each other, since their times of collaboration for IWC Watches.

Lewis Hamilton and Tom Brady once raised $100,000 for charity

Talking about Lewis Hamilton and Tom Brady collaborating for IWC Watches, the two big-name athletes once came together in IWC’s Big Pilot Golf Challenge to raise some serious money for local youth.

The timepieces that Hamilton and Brady wore in the pre-race charity golf match were later sold in a Bonhams auction and generated over $100,000.

The auction sales money was then donated to Laureus Sport for Good, with the primary beneficiary being Dibia DREAM, which uses STEM and recreational education to help underserved youths in Miami.
