Born on 7th of January 1985
Born 1985 Ė A long-awaited talent in Formula 1. He made his racing debut in the 2007 Australian Grand Prix at the age of only 22!
Lewis has progressed through the carting ranks, Formula 3000 and GP2. His first outing as an F1 driver was after over a decade of nurturing from the McLaren Mercedes team and he didnít let the investment go to waste by reaching the podium in 3rd place!
After the second race of the season in Spain, Lewis was leading the Drivers Championship and the youngest driver to ever do so. Now, just over half way through the race calendar, after 8 races, he is still at the top of his game, has never not had a podium finish and has won 2 GPs. He holds the record as the only rookie driver to lead the championship and looks set to break more records, as his nearest rivals Alonso, Massa and Raikkonen arenít that close on the leader board, the nearest being 14 points adrift! Letís hope Lewis Hamilton continues his success for Britain and McLaren, especially at the next race venue, Silverstone!
