Stop what you’re doing and watch Lewis Hamilton rag an R34 Skyline in Japan

Lewis Hamilton. Japan. Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R. Donuts. And that’s all you need to know…

Published: 25 Nov 2022

Well, here’s one way to blow off some steam. The 2022 F1 season wasn’t exactly ideal for Lewis Hamilton, with the Brit failing to win a race throughout the whole campaign for the first time in his career. 

Hamilton will be thankful that he never has to drive the troubled Mercedes W13 ever again, and in what very much looks like a celebration of that fact, he decided to rag a Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R around Japan.

We’re not joking. Check out the video that he posted to his Instagram account below. It’s everything you could hope and more. So cool. There’s even some AWD donuts in an abandoned car park, with more than a little smoke flowing up through the transmission tunnel at one point. Now we’re no mechanics, but that’s probably not a good thing.

Still, just how brilliant is it to see an R34 being properly enjoyed by one of the greatest drivers on the planet? Enjoy folks...
