To everyone that has supported me along the way, this is for you. To my incredible family, where do I even start? I am eternally grateful for your unconditional love, sacrifices, and support.”
Hamilton triumphed his first F1 title back in 2008 with McLaren which got better & better with his masterclass, making achievements of unprecedented events – most wins (94), most pole positions (97), most podium finishes (163).
