Watch Lewis Hamilton in Cars 2

Video: McLaren ace makes voice-over debut in upcoming Disney animation

You may have heard that Lewis Hamilton is going to appear in Cars 2, Disney's newest animation about cars doing some racing. You heard correctly.

The 2008 world champion will star in the film alongside Michael Caine and Owen Wilson, representing Blighty in the 'World Grand Prix'. And by star, we don't just mean stand-in-a-recording-studio-and-talk, as he helped design his car and had a big input in the film.

Lewis said: "I race cars and love doing that, but always wanted to try something new. And I thought perhaps I could do something similar to what Michael Schumacher did in the first Cars."

We've got a sneak clip of Lewis in the film, scheduled to hit UK cinemas on 22 July.

Tell us below what type of film would you like to see Lewis in - or indeed, any of the F1 grid. Vettel in a romantic-comedy? Rubens in a violent action thriller? Alonso in an epic Lord of the Rings-style fantasy?

Now share it...
