Four-time F1 world champion Lewis Hamilton talks in depth about the challenges he’s faced during his racing career and what inspired him to find the edge that made him into a most successful Formula 1 driver on the planet.

Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport partner UBS (Swiss global financial services company) made a new video – Finding an Edge, we see Hamilton in a brand-new optic as he dissects some key factors in his life that made him into a 4-time F1 world champion.

Originating from a humble background, Hamilton began go-karting at the tender age of 8 and after winning the McLaren Mercedes Drivers of the Future Championship, was drafted into their young driver program in 1997.

By 2001, he was driving for British Formula Renault, winning the title in 2003 which would act as a springboard into Formula 1.

He debuted for McLaren Mercedes in 2007 and won his first World Championship in 2008, a remarkable feat at just 23. Since then, he has cemented his place as one of the most successful drivers of all time, joining Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport in 2013 for whom he won a stunning brace of Championships in 2014 and 2015.

The team continued its dominance in 2016, taking the Constructors’ title in an epic battle in which his team-mate Nico Rosberg finally took the Drivers’ crown.

In 2017, Lewis returned to the top by taking his fourth Drivers’ title, making him the most successful British driver in the history of the sport.
