London, Oct 27 (ANI): British Formula One star Lewis Hamilton has revealed that if he were not into racing, his next career choice would have been music.

Hamilton, 23, who is taking part in the drivers championship this Sunday in Brazil, spoke of how he likes to sing and play the guitar in his hotel room before hitting the tracks.

I do love music. Its something Id love to be able to do some day. I dont believe that I have that talent, but Ive had a whirl, like the millions of people who do. If I wasnt a driver, Id try to do something that could take me somewhere, the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

I play a bit of everything really, Bob Dylan, Lenny Kravitz, Jimi Hendrix.

Reggae is my favourite to relax to. I was brought up on reggae.

Whenever we had a family get-together, they would always be listening to reggae. I have listened to Bob Marley since I was born, he said.

The F1 speed king revealed that his favourite song is Marleys No Woman, No Cry.

I find it a good way to relax. I can spend hours playing my guitar, he said.

I sing more now than I used to. I have been told I have quite a good voice, he added. (ANI)
