When Lewis Hamilton exploded onto the F1 scene in 2007, aged 22, he was a clear game changer. It wasn’t just his raw natural speed, or never-say-die driving style that rattled the cages of the more established drivers in the paddock, but his ability to soak up massive pressure while still delivering super-consistent results.

During his first year, Lewis tore-up and rewrote the rule book for rookie F1 drivers. Finishing on the podium in 12 out of 17 races – including four wins – he missed out on the drivers’ championship by a single point. The following year, Lewis went one better and grabbed the F1 drivers’ title, sealing the deal with a move on the last lap during the final race of the year.

Even when the car under him isn’t making the grade, he is still able to squeeze every bhp out of it, and finish at the sharp end. This super-slick skill and huge speed is undoubtedly what helped him burn through the ranks of karting and junior formula categories. Lewis’ meteoric rise to F1 saw him win in virtually every series he entered, including Formula Renault 2.0 UK, Formula 3 Euro Series, and the GP2 Series.

After his six year tenure at Mclaren Mercedes, Lewis switched things up in 2013, when he made the shock move of stepping away from McLaren for the first time since his pro career effectively began. Joining Monster Energy and Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, Lewis took an unprecedented fourth place in the drivers’ championship in his first season, including a win and five podiums, all while learning his way around a new car and team.

Continuing with the legendary Silver Arrows Team for 2014, Lewis is primed and ready for an all out attack on the drivers’ and team championship title.
