In just a few days, players can get Lewis Hamilton in Fortnite as the Formula 1 driver becomes the next member of the Fortnite Icon Series.

The Fortnite Icon Series brings some of the most popular mainstream actors, athletes, musicians, and more to Fortnite for a limited-time. Previous icons include Ariana Grande, Travis Scott, Neymar Jr., and LeBron James. Now, Lewis Hamilton, a 7-time World Champion, is coming to the Battle Royale as the first F1 driver in Fortnite.

Here's how to get Hamilton's skins in Fortnite.

How to Get Lewis Hamilton in Fortnite

To get Lewis Hamilton in Fortnite, players must purchase his skins from the Item Shop. The collaboration features two skins, one of Hamilton in fashionable street clothes and another in black and yellow gear. Both skins will feature an alternate style, so players will have four options to choose from come release day.

Although there are noticeably no racing-centric additions to his skin, the F1 superstar's introduction to Fortnite pays homage to other aspects of his life, like his dog, Roscoe. The Bundle includes a Roscoe Back Bling as well as a Roscoe Glider. Now, Hamilton will never be without his sidekick in-game.

There will also be a Pickaxe to complete Hamilton's collection. The Bundle will likely cost thousands of V-Bucks, so be prepared to spend some hard-earned currency on the F1 crossover. Check out how to get 1,000 free V-Bucks in Fortnite OG.

Fortnite Lewis Hamilton Release Date

The Fortnite Lewis Hamilton skin will be released on Friday, Nov. 17, 2023 at 7 p.m. ET. Hamilton joins the game just before the Las Vegas Grand Prix unfolds on Sunday, Nov. 19, and a day after Fortnite OG Seasons 7 & 8 go live.

Although it is unclear how long the skin will remain in the Item Shop, we expect the collaboration to be available for longer than other skins in Fortnite OG, like Eleven from Stranger Things. As a member of the Icon Series, Hamilton will likely stay in Fortnite for at least a weekend.
