The British racing superstar is one of the most successful sportsmen in the world, and his XI on FUT 21 is incredible.

Lewis Hamilton’s team looks to be set up in a classic 4-4-2 formation, with a strong Arsenal theme from the Gunners fan.

Defence

As mentioned above, there is a strong English and Arsenal theme running through Hamilton’s side.

In goal stands Nick Pope. Pope may not be up there with the highest-rated goalkeepers on the game, but he is certainly one of the most popular.

In front of him, two English ICONs stand in your way. Former Arsenal Invincible Sol Campbell partners Rio Ferdinand in the heart of defence.

The full backs are Liverpool’s duo Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson, and few can argue with that.

Midfield

You don’t often see a flat midfield four, but we like the look of this one as it combines raw power with technique!

Retired Arsenal and France enforcer Patrick Vieira partners current Gunner Thomas Partey in a powerful central midfield duo.

On the right, legendary England right midfielder David Beckham will provide plenty of service to a deadly front two.

PSG’s Brazilian trickster Neymar Jr. starts on the left, with his latest in-form card boasting a 92 OVR including 95 Dribbling.

Attack

Lewis Hamilton has selected two lethal (and rapid) French strikers from past and present to give your defence nightmares.

We will start with Team of the Year (TOTY) Kylian Mbappe. Mbappe’s newest card has a huge 97 OVR, with outrageous 99 Pace and 96 Shooting.

Partnering Mbappe is one of the greatest strikers of all time. Another former Gunner, Thierry Henry will prove a real handful for your defenders.

With so much attacking talent, we wish you luck when challenging this XI.
