Who is Lewis Hamilton in Fortnite?

Lewis Hamilton is a popular British race car driver who competes in Formula One. Hamilton currently drives for Mercedes and is one of the most well-renowned drivers in the league.

So who would have ever expected to see him in Fortnite?

Well, the race car driver only just got his Icon Skin back in November of 2023, so being that Fortnite had just introduced Rocket Racing soon after, it seems like Lewis Hamilton's addition to the game was perfect timing.

But how does a player get his skin in Fortnite?
