Pointing to his car, he said: ‘This Lewis’s car. Nobody touches this car.’

Then the seven-time world champion pulled off his disguise to the shock and delight of the pupils, and told them: ‘Well, you know, the reason I’m allowed to touch that is because I’m Lewis.’

The racing superstar sat down with the children afterwards and stressed the importance of a positive mental attitude.

He told them: ‘Education, I know, is key for every child’.

‘There are a lot of youngsters who don’t realise that being an engineer, for example, is an avenue that they can go down,’ he added.
