Lewis Hamilton is considered to be one of the most aggressive drivers of the Formula 1 world champion. Five times world champion, his guide is nervous but precise, because he’s all about braking, being very good at postponing it as much as possible. In some circuits it’s just a computer, like Silverstone and Austin, and in those cases for his teammates it’s really hard to beat him.
Hamilton was born in Stevenage, in County Hertfordshire, by Anthony Hamilton and Carmen Larbalestier. His maternal family is native to England while his father comes from Central America more precisely from the state of Grenada in the Caribbean Sea, where his grandfather arrived inthe United Kingdom in 1954. Following their separation in 1987, Hamilton went to live with her mother and two sisters Nicola and Samantha until he was twelve years old before moving to his father, stepmother Linda and brother-in-law Nicolas.
He discovered the passion for engines in 1991 after receiving his father’s gift from an electric car model. Having understood Lewis’s natural talent for racing, Anthony was indebted to raise his son on a kart, and until 2010 he played the role of his manager.
He was engaged with former singer of Pussycat Dolls, Nicole Scherzinger from November 2007 to February 2015.
Announced as one of the strongest and most talented drivers in the Formula 1 paddock, stands out for its aggressive driving style for its tenacity and skill in overtaking and its speed in qualifying, features that make it a complete and very tough rider for rivals.
No other driver in the history of Formula 1 has accumulated more pole position than he did.
Born of a mixed couple, with a black father and a white mother, is often referred to as “the first color pilot of Formula 1” although Willy T. Ribbs had already tested a car in 1986, though not participating in any grand prize.
In December 1995 he first met McLaren owner Ron Dennis, who three years later included him in the Young Driver Development Program. fter winning titles in smaller competitions such as Formula Renault 2.0, Formula Three Euroseries, and GP2, he made his debut in Formula 1 in 2007, 12 years after his encounter with Dennis. This made it the youngest rider to secure a contract with McLaren and get a place in F1.
Since its top-rated debut, Hamilton has won at least one race and a pole position during the World Championship, making it the only rider in the history of the Formula One to have been successful in the first season for eleven consecutive years. He is the rider who has gained more pole position in Formula 1 history and Britain’s most successful in the competition as well as being the second in number of successes behind only Michael Schumacher. After winning his second world title in 2014, he was named BBC Sport as “Sportsman of the Year.” The following year, however, became the first British to win two consecutive championships, and the second, after Jackie Stewart, to win three. His race number is 44.
