Lewis Hamilton kicked off the F1 Miami GP race week with several celebrities.

On Thursday night, Hamilton made an appearance at will.i.am’s Mercedes AMG unveiling with celebrities DJ Khaled, Jamie Foxx, Ludacris and Swizz Beats to kick off Formula 1 Grand Prix Weekend at the Mercedes-AMG Experience Center pop-up in Miami.

The event took place to promote will.i.am’s collaboration with Mercedes, a car he designed named the Will.I.AMG. The proceeds from the car will go towards STEAM educational programs in disadvantaged communities in the U.S.

Will and Lewis Hamilton spoke on stage and talked about their various charities that are aimed to help and empower minority youths across the world.

During the event, Hamilton spoke about his upcoming race and revealed that he would likely lose over 20 pounds during the race week due to the heat in Miami.

“I heard the track, and the temperatures are going to be super high. Tomorrow I will likely lose 6-7 pounds, then 6-7 pounds the next day, and then during the race, it could be up to 10 pounds.”
