Lewis Hamilton once rejected bizarre music suggestion from Mercedes’ principal

Seven times World Champion Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes chief Toto Wolff have stood with each other through thick and thin. Throughout their ten years of friendship, they have celebrated many championships together.  However, in a recent interview, it was disclosed that they have opposite music tastes.

Speaking to BBC’s Desert Island Discs, Wolff stated: “I think we have similar music tastes. His is much more sophisticated – but many years ago I said to him, ‘What would you think if we were to play AC/DC’s Thunderstruck in the garage before going out with the cars, to have all the mechanics listen to this?’ He said, “It would make me puke!”

When asked about his friendship, Wolff further said: “Lewis has become a friend and over the years we’ve gone through difficult spells and very good moments. We celebrated many championships and we had discussions among ourselves, which were not always easy. But today, he is just a friend. He’s an ally, he’s the best racing driver in the world and I am very proud of being part of his career.”

Fans across the world are now begging him to release his songs and not let his talent go to waste which could create a powerful impact in the music industry.
