Plant-based
pro driver and advocate Lewis Hamilton won the Hungarian Grand Prix today – giving him a strong lead over opponent Sebastian Vettel.

Win

In the
fifth victory of his campaign, the English Mercedes driver finished 24 points
ahead of Vettel – with a score of 213.

As a result,
Hamilton will enter the season re-launch in Belguim with a firm upper hand.

Plant-based

Hamilton is
a known advocate for plant-based eating and compassion for animals.

The racing
pro shared a video to Instagram made by animal rights organization Mercy for Animals,
telling his fans to ‘go plant-based’ – and has been very vocal about his own change in diet.

Feeling his
best

At 32, he
said:
“I feel the best I’ve ever felt physically and mentally.

“All
year I’ve felt very strong mentally, but I think physically I’m now taking also
a big step and that’s really the decision I made to change my diet.

“The
best decision was obviously moving to this team; the second best was changing
my diet.”
