Lewis Hamilton: Tiger is proof you should never give up on your dreams

Reigning F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton was so impressed by Tiger Woods’ comeback win at the Masters that he thinks it should be turned into a film.

Woods claimed his 15th major trophy and 81st PGA Tour title in Augusta, Georgia, on the same day that Hamilton won his 75th grand prix in China.

Hamilton was obviously a little pre-occupied on that day but was able to watch highlights of Woods’ victory, and came away feeling inspired.

“I did see some of the highlights and it was quite emotional to watch just knowing his journey, where he started and the things he has gone through,” Hamilton told Sky Sports News at the Azerbaijan GP.

“To come back after so many years is just proof [about] never giving up on your dreams.”

Hamilton feels Woods’ comeback story would be ideal fodder for a film.

“I had the pleasure of meeting him last year at Wimbledon for the first time and I’d always wanted to meet him,” added Hamilton.

“Before that he had sent me a flag from one of the holes when we were both with one of our sponsors. I was really proud to see him up there just showing everyone that you should never give up, keep pushing and keep believing in yourself.

“It’s now time for a movie – it’s a perfect movie! So I look forward to seeing it.”
