Billy 'Braveheart' Monger is Lewis Hamilton's and Mercedes' special guest at the British Grand Prix this weekend.
The unfortunate teenager who lost both his legs in a horrendous Formula 4 crash just a few months ago was out and about at Silverstone, taking in all the action in the Silver Arrows camp.
Billy was on the receiving end of a huge amount of encouragement and affection from everyone in the paddock, his life-changing accident having shook the entire motorsport community and beyond.
"I think he’s frigging awesome so that’s why I invited him down and his family," said Hamilton.
"When I was in the garage I could see him in my mirror. Hopefully going to get him in my car at some stage because I am sure he wants to sit in the car.
"He’s already racing, already back in the racing car, a bit like Alex Zanardi, who for me blows my mind.
"I think he’s just an incredible human being, he’s gone onto win gold medals and I know this kid is going to do the same thing."
Incredibly, the inspirational teen has already put himself back behind the wheel of a racing car, testing a specially modified VW Fun Cup recently.
But Billy isn't stopping there, and ambitions to race at Le Mans in the coming years as a member of a special project promoted by amputee racer Frederic Sausset who raced in the endurance classic in 2016.
