LEWIS HAMILTON has revealed he's given up alcohol as he looks to transform his fortunes in Formula One.
The seven-time world champion has criticised the peer pressure involved with booze despite his vast world experience.
Hamilton recently launched a new non-alcoholic tequila drink, with the Brit expanding his empire off the track.
The 38-year-old has now revealed he's gone sober as he looks to get back to his best following Red Bull's dominance over the past two seasons.
Hamilton admitted he's seeking "that extra one per cent", as he continues to perform at the top level of the sport.
The British legend told Vogue: “I don't know if I’m going to drink again.

“Since I’ve stopped drinking, I’ve just been feeling so much better, so much more clarity.
"There is pressure to drink within a social setting. You have one shot and feel like 'Damn, why did I do that?' when you get home.
"I was like, wow, that's kind of crazy how I'm feeling pressured.
"And I realised, how can I be feeling pressure at 38? Imagine young 18 year olds."
