- Cruz Ramirez: "Hamilton, track Mr. McQueen's speed and report it."
- —Cruz Ramirez getting a voice command from Hamilton
Role in the film
Cruz Ramirez occasionally uses Hamilton as her voice command assistant. When Lightning McQueen refuses to test his speed on a treadmill, Cruz suggests using Hamilton to track McQueen's speed on the beach near the Rust-eze Racing Center, since McQueen's new suit can transmit his pace to Hamilton. McQueen agrees anyway, though after Cruz's many failed attempts trying to keep up with McQueen so that Hamilton is in range, McQueen's top speed is eventually reported by Hamilton to be the same as before.
When Cruz is on her way back to the RRC from the Florida International Super Speedway, she gets a notification from Hamilton saying that McQueen wants her back at the circuit. Later, as she competes in the second half of the Florida 500, Cruz uses Hamilton to annoy Jackson Storm while he is leading.
- Hamilton is the second character in the Cars franchise to be voiced by Lewis Hamilton, after he voiced a car named after him in Cars 2. Interestingly, in a few international versions of Cars 3, Hamilton is voiced by people who have competed alongside Lewis Hamilton in the 2017 Formula One season.
