Lewis Hamilton turned down role in Top Gun sequel

Lewis Hamilton's busy Formula One schedule meant he had to turn down a role in the upcoming movie Top Gun: Maverick, but the five-time world champion says he still harbours Hollywood ambitions.

Tottenham’s Pochettino Compares Title Challenge To Mclaren’s Dismal F1 Campaign
