Three-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton will provide expert insight for players of the latest version of the Gran Turismo franchise.
Hamilton will act as a mentor to users of Gran Turismo Sport to 'share his racing wisdom' in the game, which will be released on PlayStation 4 on October 18 (Wednesday).
Hamilton will 'reveal his driving philosophy and techniques through driving images and interviews for players of Gran Turismo Sport, providing valuable advice to many players who strive to be as fast and strong as Lewis himself'.
“I have been playing Gran Turismo since I was a child, so to actually be part of the gameplay design has been an incredible experience,” said Hamilton, who currently leads the F1 standings.
Kazunori Yamauchi, the CEO of Polyphony Digital, producer of the Gran Turismo series, welcomed Hamilton’s input to the latest iteration of the series.
“From watching Lewis drive on TV all these years, I had an idea of how he might drive, but the experience of watching him drive in person was well beyond my wildest expectations,” said Yamauchi.
“And I’m really glad to be able to share his driving and philosophy with the players in Gran Turismo.”
