What’s in my travel bag: Lewis Hamilton

Even Lewis Hamilton’s beloved pet dogs Roscoe and Coco have been enjoying the high life and flying in style in his luxurious private jet this season. So while the dogs have paddock passes and Mercedes race suits in their bags, we asked the F1 World Champion what he packs in his own travel bag when he is jetting around the world from one Grand Prix to another.


“I’ve mastered the art of travelling light. I never carry a shoulder bag because heavy bags kill your posture. You end up walking with one shoulder up and one shoulder down, so I always travel with a bag with wheels now.”

Travel bag
“I personally always travel with my favourite designer luggage. I usually take my roll-on cabin-size case with me because it’s stylish and practical.”

“My MacBook laptop goes everywhere with me; I just couldn’t live without it. I often use it to watch movies during a long flight or to listen to my library of music – I’ve got so much music!”

“Generally I don’t like the headphones you get on the plane, so I make sure I have my Bose headphones with me too. The sound is just so much better.”

“I’ve always got plenty of music to listen to, either on my BlackBerry smartphone or on my laptop. When I’m on the plane usually I listen to a lot of hip-hop. During the weekend at Silverstone I was listening to old-school stuff like Stevie Wonder and The Delfonics.”

Notepad and pen
”I have music that people have never heard of. It could be demos, songs that I’ve written, or empty tracks that other people have sent me; maybe music that we’ve made and never used. Sometimes I’ll write notes about what I am feeling when I listen to my music, so that once I get back to my studio I can start writing lyrics.”

Jewellery box
“I’ve got to have my jewels with me when I travel. You’ve probably seen me wearing gold chain necklaces at some point during race weekend.”
