Kolkata: Though aghast to see children working in brick kilns, Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton, here on a charitable visit Monday, said he was inspired and moved by the energy of the children.

As the global ambassador of 'Save the Children', Hamilton visited a brick kiln on the outskirts and met several underprivileged children.

"The thing that I will carry with myself is the energy that these children have. They all are so full of it. When I asked them what they wanted to be, they all had so beautiful answers and dreams for a bright future. I will carry these beautiful memories with me," said the 28-year-old Briton.
