Plant-based F1 driver Lewis Hamilton is looking for a vegan chef to work for him.

The athlete put out a call on Instagram stories in an attempt to find the perfect candidate.

He wrote: “I’m looking for a vegan chef to come work for me. If you are one or know of one please DM [direct message] me.”

Plant Based

Hamilton ditched animal products last year – the global story was broken by Plant Based News.

Like many others, it seemed like Hamilton was inspired by health documentary What the Health.

Announcing the news, the star wrote: “Going to watch What the Health Tonight.

“I’m on a mission to go vegan, people. Animal cruelty, global warming and our personal health is at stake.”

Feeling great

Since changing his diet to plant-based, Hamilton has been vocal about how good he feels.

In one interview before winning his fourth F1 Championship 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.”
