Timing is everything.

Switch on your flatscreen LED and theres a Bond-like commercial that features a rejuvenated star in a spot called Liquid & Metal. For the Malaysian oil company, Petronas.

Flip open a glossy and you’re assaulted by stunning portraits of F1’s first ever black driver, staring right back at you.

Touch social media on a smart device anywhere and you’ll notice after a few retweets and post-shares from the man himself that he could indeed be a rapper from LA!

Tattooed. Young. Bold. Bling.

These are words you don’t normally associate with Grand Prix racing. But maybe it’s time. Because at Melbourne, Albert Park. Pole belongs to Lewis Carl Hamilton. And the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 brand cannot be happier.
