Lewis Hamilton won the World Championship with Mercedes in 2017
Nicolas Hamilton says his younger brother Lewis’ success can only inspire young drivers.
Lewis, 32, became the youngest world champion by a Briton in history at the Brazilian Grand Prix earlier this month.
“We’d see it as an amazing boost to the sport,” said Nicolas. “It’s a great role model to the young drivers – those boys who think they can make it.”
Hamilton Jr has yet to announce whether he will race in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on 18 July.
The 2008 world champion, who is in Brazil for the final grand prix of the year, said he decided to attend the race in São Paulo after an initial preference for Venezia.
It will be Lewis’ 50th race in Formula 1, and his third round of championship points, after collecting nine in the previous two races in Mexico and Brazil.
Hamilton Jr added: “It’s the big weekend. I am heading over there to support my boy, but my brother has been lucky enough to be world champion for the second time.
“When he won the world championship in 2008, I was a learner in a Formula Renault event in Stuttgart. That’s how quick life goes.
“This season has been more incredible than the last.”
