Formula One star Lewis Hamilton wants to make a biopic on his life and his journey to the top of the racing world.

The British Formula One champion says he wants to both produce and star in the movie, reported Contactmusic.

“I would probably play myself. I have not seen an actor that looks like me or that I'd particularly want to represent me,” Hamilton says    The 32-year-old star says the screenplay would focus on his rags to riches story and how his dad worked three jobs to support him as a young driver who went on to become three-time world champion.

“My story is about coming from humble beginnings. I am probably the last of a dying breed because pretty much every other driver I'm racing with has come from wealth.

“It will be really telling a family story about where we've come from, how we did it as a family, the sacrifices my family made and the trials and tribulations we came across along the way.”

Hamilton believes his life story can inspire people to follow to their dreams.

“I think it is an inspiring story for people around the world, not to be racing drivers but for anything, for families to stick together as a unit and having dreams and following those dreams and actually achieving them,” he adds.
