Product description


Lewis Hamilton is the record-breaking young British hero of Formula 1. His phenomenal debut season was nothing short of a revelation, coming through against all the odds to dominate and revolutionise the world of motor racing.It was an outcome no one could have predicted: thrown in at the deep end 'on a mighty whim' by McLaren team owner Ron Dennis, not only did Lewis have to combat his own nerves and fears, he had to overcome a dissenter within his own camp.With behind-the-scenes insight into the intense rivalry between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso which threatened to derail the young Briton's dream, and the low-down on the 'spy-gate' scandal and the loss of McLaren's constructors' points, bestselling sports author Frank Worrall describes how Lewis handled the intensity of the media scrum and kept his dignity to emerge triumphant as he racked up sensational wins around the world.From the momentous first podium finish in Melbourne to victories throughout the year in Canada, the United States, Hungary and Japan - as well as the dramatic crash at the Nurburgring and the gripping final race in Brazil - the entire season is covered.

With the definitive take on Lewis' rise through the motor racing ranks and the crucial role of his family, this is must for every sports fan.Ever-confident, Lewis goes from strength to strength and is guaranteed to set the track alight for many years to come. This is the ultimate story of the driver whom Sir Jackie Stewart says 'has re-written the rookie rule book'. But he is a rookie no more. Lewis Hamilton is here to stay.Hamilton is the first black driver of African/Afro Caribbean ancestry to compete in F1. He is also the most prominent British hope for the Championship title. Ticket sales for the British GP have risen as a result of Lewis' success proving that there is huge interest in this rising star. This biography will be fully updated to include the full 2007 season.
