Q: Do you think your belief in God helps you in your sport and your job?
HAMILTON: I used to be insecure about the fact that I’m Catholic and that I have a relationship with God. It wasn’t until I got to Formula One that I really started to embrace it and feel comfortable showing it. There’s a quote from Marianne Williamson: “There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you.” I have that tattooed on my chest. She goes on to say, “We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
