Sir Patrick Stewart dreams of driving a racing car.

The 'Star Trek' actor revealed his ambition to race against the likes of Lewis Hamilton, the current Formula One World Champion, and former champion Jenson Button during a Q&A on Facebook.

Asked what he would like to program into the Holodeck - a simulated reality facility in 'Star Trek' - the 74-year-old performer said: "That's easy: me driving a Formula 1 racing car in the Monaco Grand Prix and just beating Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button by a nose (mine preferably)."

Sir Patrick also revealed he would love to star alongside Jennifer Lawrence, having both appeared in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

He shared: "I'd like to collaborate with Jennifer Lawrence. I think she's brilliant, with a great sense of humour, and quite good looking."

Meanwhile, Sir Patrick recently admitted he missed a lot of his children's lives when they were growing up because of his career.

The actor has two kids, son Daniel and daughter Sophia, with his first wife Sheila Falconer, and he wishes he could have spent more time with them during their formative years.

He said: "When I got married and I had children, I missed huge amounts of time. I would see my kids on Sundays if I was lucky. It was hard on my kids."
