Lewis Hamilton pictures – Go-kart to 2012 Formula 1 with McLaren

Published

Lewis Hamilton was born in Stevenage In December 1995, at the age of ten, he approached McLaren team principal Ron Dennis at the Autosport Awards ceremony and told him, “I want to race for you one day … I want to race for McLaren.” Less than three years later McLaren and Mercedes-Benz signed him to their Young Driver Support Programme.

After winning the British Formula Renault, Formula Three Euroseries, and GP2 championships on his way up the racing career ladder, he drove for McLaren in 2007, making his Formula One debut 12 years after his initial encounter with Dennis. Hamilton’s contract for the McLaren driver development program made him the youngest ever driver to secure a contract which later resulted in a Formula One drive.

On 28 September 2012, it was announced after much speculation that Hamilton would be leaving McLaren after the 2012 season to join Mercedes for the 2013 season onwards, partnering Nico Rosberg after signing a three-year contract with the team.
