Nathan meets his hero Lewis Hamilton at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Motorsport fanatic Nathan has sickle cell anaemia and wished to meet his hero Lewis Hamilton.

Starlight arranged for Nathan to go to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix where he met Lewis at the Mercedes garage. Nathan even got to sit in Lewis’ Mercedes F1 car before the title-deciding race!

I was already really excited to be in Abu Dhabi for the race weekend, but being invited into the Mercedes garage and meeting Lewis Hamilton today was the best day of my life. He is my hero and I hope I will be a successful driver like him one day.
