Lewis Hamilton is one of the greatest drivers in the history of Formula One motor racing. He is just the second British driver to win the World Championship on three occasions and the first to win back-to-back titles. His rise to the top was certainly dramatic, but hardly surprising given his first meeting with the then manager of McLaren, Ron Dennis. Ten-year-old Lewis told Dennis he wanted to drive in Formula One for McLaren and, 12 years later, he was doing just that. Rookie drivers don't win the World Championship first time out, but Lewis came within one point of doing that. Twelve months later, no one could stop him or McLaren and Lewis was, at 23, F1's youngest World Champion. Over the next four seasons, Lewis had to endure less competitive cars and, for 2013, joined for a new powerhouse team, Mercedes. In 2014, everything worked out and 11 wins and 16 podium finishes in 19 races were more than enough to give him a second World Championship. The following year brought so many landmarks, including the victories in Japan, Russia and United States when he matched his hero Ayrton Senna's total of 41 Grand Prix victories, passed him and then clinched a third World Championship, something only Sir Jackie Stewart had managed among British drivers. In 2016 he will celebrate his 10th season in Formula One and Lewis Hamilton is the ideal volume to celebrate the landmark. Written in Bruce Jones' unique style, filled with celebrity quotes and thrilling action photography, this book, fully revised and updated, is perfect for Lewis Hamilton fans of all ages.
