Watch: Lewis Hamilton’s role in Gran Turismo Sport

We’re but a few days away from the 17 October release of Gran Turismo Sport, arguably one of the most important releases in the franchise’s history. Featuring a heavy esports emphasis, it represents somewhat of a departure compared to previous entries.

Now, developer Polyphony Digital has released a new video, detailing triple F1 champion Lewis Hamilton’s involvement in the new game.

“It has been announced that the three time F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton will be appearing in ‘Gran Turismo Sport’ as the mentor and Maestro who will lead and guide the players,” read an excerpt from the video description.

As for the actual video? We see Hamilton meeting with Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi, sitting down to play the game with a steering wheel. The footage also shows the Mercedes F1 driver setting reference laps, talking driving style/habits and giving advice to Yamauchi.
