PITPASS - An interview and photoshoot with GQ has Pitpass fearing that Lewis Hamilton might not have learned his lesson from 2011.
It was the Spanish philosopher and humanist George Santayana who suggested that; "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it".
And these are the words that went through our minds when we received a press release from GQ magazine regarding its January issue.
"Formula 1 is soon to be returning to the U.S., and the sleek and stylish racing champ, Lewis Hamilton, sat down with GQ to share his thoughts about what he thinks of the States, what he believes could help America catch the F1 "bug", and his openness to being put on the big screen," it proclaimed.
"I love it in the States," says Lewis when asked his thoughts on America. The roads are big, the food is big. If it was possible to be in L.A. and still live my racing life, I would move now."
When asked if he would ever consider a movie role, the McLaren driver responded: "I'd love to hear any ideas."
And as for how he thinks America will react to F1 this time around. "It's really a matter of getting the car in front of people," he said. "Once you hear it and see it, feel the noise, then maybe they'll turn out for a race."
"I don't quite know how F1 will play in Oklahoma and places like that," he admits, "but every time I'm in California, I swear more people recognize me... genuine fans."
