He has embraced a hippie turn that was already seen in his last months in the Circus. Say hello to Lewis Hamilton, rival on the track, true friend and battle partner, including political ones, like when in Budapest they took sides against the Hungarian government's laws on the Lgbtq+ community.
Sebastian, a four-time world champion, is enjoying his new life.

Among his favorite hobbies is the trekkingtakes long walks in the most scenic paths that surround it.
