Lewis Hamilton F1 career

Arguably the greatest ever F1 driver, probably if we take Michael Schumacher out of the equation. Until today, he is the only black driver in the history of F1.

He made his debut for the McLaren F1 team in 2007, and finished as the runner-up in the very first season.

He continued his success into the year 2008, as he won his first title in dramatic fashion, by one point. Who would forget the iconic line of Martin Brundle on-air – IS THAT GLOCK GOING SLOWLY?

The next few seasons were quite dry as he failed to win the championship. He finished 4th, 5th and 4th in 2010, 2011 and 2012 seasons respectively.

Hamilton joined the Mercedes in 2013, replacing Michael Schumacher, who had then announced his retirement. He finished 4th in his first season with Mercedes.

Following the introduction of turbo-hybrid engines, Hamilton’s success reached new heights. He won both the 2014 and 2015 seasons, as the Mercedes dominated the sport, but also gave rise to an internal rivalry between Hamilton and his teammate Nico Rosberg.

Hamilton lost the title 5 points to his teammate Rosberg in 2016, after which Rosberg announced his retirement.

Following Rosberg’s retirement, it was time for Vettel-Hamilton rivalry, as Hamilton won a closely contested 2017 season.

The 2018 season was even closer, with Vetter leading for the large part of the tournament, before Hamilton surged with 6 wins out of the last 7 races to win back-to-back titles.

He won both the 2019 and 2020 seasons with ease, fending off challenges from teammate Valtteri Bottas, Max Verstappen, Charles LeClerc, to name a few.

Their relationship was an on and off one after their split in 2010. They finally ended it in 2015. Since then, Hamilton has dated plenty of well-known celebrities like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora, Barbara Palvin, Winnie Harlow, Sofia Richie and a few more.
