It’s not everyday you get to meet someone famous on the streets and what are the odds of you casually bumping into a Formula 1 champion at a Petronas petrol station? Sounds (almost) impossible but these fans are sure lucky.
Just yesterday (Monday, 11th April), a fan spotted professional race car driver Sir Lewis Hamilton at a Petronas petrol station in Penchala Link, Kuala Lumpur. Sounds too good to be true but it’s no joke as there are multiple sources to confirm this.
Never in my life would I ever imagine seeing Sir Lewis Hamilton, the 7-time world champion, at a Petronas petrol station in AMPANG 💀💀💀 pic.twitter.com/JATFL2BuaJ

Twitter user @aimanhxzm tweeted a photo of the seven-time Formula 1 world champion and has since gone viral gaining over 14k Retweets, 30.7k likes and 2008 replies. The photo is a screenshot of his Instastory where he spotted Lewis Hamilton at a Petronas petrol station in Penchala Link.
@aimanhxzm wasn’t the only one who spotted him as many fans posted their photos and videos of meeting the 37-year-old driver at KLCC. Lewis didn’t come alone though as he was here with new Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 teammate George Russell.
There’s a reason why the two drivers are in town and it’s not just to have Nasi Lemak for breakfast. The two Petronas F1 teammates are here in KL for the Petronas Welcome Home Programme and will be departing soon.

Lewis posted on his Instastories of his time here in KL. The series videos and photos he posted are mostly of him visiting the Petronas Twin Towers and even tagging the oil and gas company in one of the stories. In one Instastory, he mentions that this was his first time visiting the top of the towers after 10 years of working with Petronas.
“What a view of KL, this place is beautiful as are the people of Malaysia. You should def visit if you haven’t”, he said. Both Lewis and George recently finished the Australian Grand Prix that took place over the weekend at the Albert Park Grand Prix Circuit in Melbourne, Australia.
