Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton
Born in Stevenage, England
in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, England Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton found his need for speed early. In 1991, at age 6, his Father bought him a radio-controlled car. With it, he took second place the next year in the BRCA Championship, beating adults. The next step was a Go-Kart at age 6, and Hamilton was in on racing.
At age 8, his career began, as Hamilton started karting in the Ryse House Kart Circuit. He won so many races and championships that odd-makers calculated a 40/1 chance of him winning a Formula One Grand Prix by age 23. The confidence came with swagger, as he told Ron Dennis, Boss of the Formula One Team, one day he would win in his cars. His breakout year was his rookie year, 2007. He won his first Formula One race and set a record for a rookie.
- In all of Formula One history, Hamilton is the first and only black driver to get behind the wheel.
- Raised Roman Catholic, Hamilton remains Religious, often wearing his cross while racing.
- Coco and Roscoe, his two Bulldogs, go everywhere Hamilton goes.
