Formula 1 champion will fight for the environment

Six-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton said on his Instagram that he is in anticipation of the release of the serial electric car Mercedes-Benz EQS. However, not all of the rider’s fans appreciated his statement.

Lewis Hamilton is a well-known vegetarian who increasingly encourages his fans to think about the environmental problem and switch to electric cars in order to reduce the harm to the environment. This time, the six-time Formula 1 champion said that his “dream car” will be the electric Mercedes-Benz EQS. The company presented a prototype of the model at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, but many fans of the racing driver reproach him for the fact that, despite his active “green” attitude, the work of a Formula 1 pilot is associated with harm to the environment. In addition, the British fleet has a large number of supercars with traditional internal combustion engines. For example, the driver owns a McLaren P1, a Ferrari LaFerrari and 599 Aperta, a Pagani Zonda 760, as well as a Ford Shelby Mustang GT500 and several Mercedes cars.

In addition, Hamilton owns a private jet, which he often uses to transport his dogs. In this regard, the racer’s fans said that the acquisition of one electric car from the sponsoring company cannot overshadow the damage that the pilot causes to the environment on a daily basis.

Mercedes-Benz EQS will be built on a new modular platform MEA (Modular Electric Architecture) and will get frameless doors. Judging by the concept presented earlier, the serial electric car will receive two electric motors with a total capacity of 476 horsepower (760 Nm). The model will be able to accelerate to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds, and the power reserve without recharging will be about 700 kilometers.

The premiere of the Mercedes-Benz EQS should take place before the end of 2020. Estimated cost will be about 100 thousand dollars

Last December, Lewis Hamilton asked Mercedes-Benz to stop using natural leather in interior trims. The athlete tried to convince the German concern to begin the process of switching to new synthetic and plant materials in order to take care of the environment.
