Will Smith teaches Lewis Hamilton the moves to succeed at flag waving

Sport A- A A+

Lewis Hamilton has taken to Instagram to share an old video of Will Smith teaching him how to wave a flag – and it turns out Lewis is a quick study.

Back in November, Will turned up to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix where he cheered on pal Lewis and even got to sit in the Mercedes car.

But now, clearly reminiscing, Lewis has shared a video of Will showing him the moves as he waves the black and white chequered flag, with Will admitting ‘you can’t just get anybody to wave the flag’.

Then revealing that the hand goes first and then the knee follows, Lewis has a go and gets it down pretty quick, asking Will to run past so he has someone to wave the flag for.

Lewis and Will have been pals for years, and when Lewis won the championship in Mexico City, a pre-recorded message was played over his radio channel from Will.

‘Hey Lewis, congrats man! That’s how you do it, baby! Just like I taught you! That’s how, that’s how you do it!’ he said.

‘Just like that! That’s how you are supposed to drive!’ Speaking in Abu Dhabi, Will revealed that getting in to a F1 car was on his bucket list.

At that point, Lewis asked: “Can you drive?” ‘This is just such a special honour for me. I’m doing a thing called the bucket list. I turn 50 this year and I decided I’m going to do everything I want to do,’ Will told press.

‘He granted the old man a wish!’
