Formula One Lewis Hamilton visits Cuba as UNICEF ambassador

Briton Lewis Hamilton, three-time Formula One world champion, is in Cuba as ambassador for the United Nations Children´s Fund (UNICEF).

Accroding to Prensa Latina news agency, Hamilton wants to see, in first person, the extensive work that is done with children and development programs in Cuba.

The driver shared photos on the social network Instagram accompanied by a suggestive message: "Falling in love with Cuba".

"In Cuba with Unicef ​​to see the incredible work they are doing here with the children and the first development programs," he also told in a video.

In the recording you can see several classic cars, from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s of the last century, which are preserved on the Caribbean island in very good condition.

Active collaborator of Unicef ​​and ambassador since 2012, Hamilton thus shows his more altruistic face, besides first hand feeling the reality that the children live in Cuba, often misrepresented by several media.

The British driver of the Mercedes team conquered the title of the world of F1 in 2008, 2014 and 2015.

Currently placed second in the World Championship-2017, behind German Sebastian Vettel, Hamilton will return to action next weekend, when he will race in the Belgian Grand Prix.
