Mercedes Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton says that he avoids spending his spare time partying in nightclubs.

Mercedes Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he avoids going to nightclubs on his time off.

Instead, the 28-year-old, who joined Mercedes from McLaren at the end of last season, has claimed that he prefers to record music.

"I'm massively into music, but it doesn't mean I'm not focused on my job," Hamilton wrote in his new BBC Sport column. "I couldn't be more focused on winning.

"In my private time, instead of being out in nightclubs I like to be with my friends, being creative, designing things or coming up with ideas."

Meanwhile, the British driver has insisted that he doesn't constantly hang around with celebrities.
