Hamilton said Jackson was his biggest inspiration in the field of music, reported Female First.
Asked who he would most like to emulate, he replied, "If it was a sportsman Muhammad Ali, because he was my favourite. But if it was music, Michael Jackson."
The 30-year-old budding songwriter also praised the 'Man In The Mirror' crooner, who died aged 50 in 2009 from acute Propofol intoxication, for his amazing "gift" and appeared in awe of his talent.
"What a life and journey he had, what a voice and talent," the racer said. Hamilton added making it in music is top of his priorities. Above cars, music is what I love doing most. Music is the key to the soul. It's the one thing that brings people from all walks of life together to celebrate."
