FORMULA One star Lewis Hamilton is considering building a museum in his hometown.
The former Peartree and John Henry Newman pupil, who grew up in Stevenage, was pondering the idea ahead of his first race with Mercedes in the Formula One season opener on Sunday.
“I have been thinking to build a museum,” the 2008 world champion told the Guardian.
“It was my dad’s idea. It would be cool to have somewhere – in Stevenage or London, I don’t know – where we could have one of the cars from every year that I have driven and have the trophies up so that people can see them.
“Or I am going to have to build a house big enough because I have hundreds of trophies – I must have at least 500.”
