F1 Fan’s Spirited Pursuit Of Lewis Hamilton Autograph Ends In Epic Failure (Video)
There are still two races left in the 2017 Formula 1 season, but Great Britain’s Lewis Hamilton locked up his historic fourth F1 title on Sunday with a ninth-place finish at the Mexican Grand Prix. His closest rival, Sebastian Vettel, needed at least a second-place finish to keep his hopes of catching Hamilton alive. When Vettel finished fourth, the season was over.
After the race, Hamilton draped himself in the Union Jack and took a victory lap on foot. As he made his way through a mob of fans and reporters on the track, a bunch of people tried to get selfies and autographs with him. However, one guy really stood out from the pack. Wearing a white shirt and black hat, he took off after Hamilton through the crowd, dodging and weaving people left and right until, finally, his pursuit ended in an epic crash into another guy.

Whether he’s in a car or on foot, apparently you just can’t catch Lewis Hamilton.
