Born and raised in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Hamilton joined the McLaren young driver programme in 1998.
This led to a Formula One drive with McLaren from 2007 to 2012, making Hamilton the first, and so far only, black driver to race in the series. In his inaugural season, Hamilton set numerous records as he finished runner-up to Kimi Räikkönen by one point.
The following season, he won his maiden title in dramatic fashion—making a crucial overtake on the last lap of the last race of the season—to become the then-youngest Formula One World Champion in history. After six years with McLaren, Hamilton signed with Mercedes in 2013.
Changes to the regulations for 2014 mandating the use of turbo-hybrid engines saw the start of a highly successful period for Hamilton, during which he has won six further drivers’ titles.

Lewis Hamilton believes the Mercedes W13 has its own ‘moods’ when it comes to its performance and operational window.
The Briton explained that their car has been unpredictable and was unsure why it suited him more than George Russell in Singapore.
Lewis Hamilton was asked by Sportskeeda about the reasons behind how he managed to warm his tires quicker than others, including his teammate George Russell. The Briton replied:
“I can’t speak for George. I don’t know what happened with him in the session but again, I don’t know why, the car was, we’re just working. You arrive one weekend and it doesn’t work, you have no idea why and then other weekends it does, and then one session it works and it just depends what mood the car’s in, I guess. But today, it was good that we’re able to get temperature in the tyres and that enabled us to have the confidence to push and fight with these guys. So it was definitely tricky, though. Definitely wasn’t anywhere near easy to keep up with their sort of pace. They’re always so quick, these guys.”
In qualifying for the third spot on the grid for the 2022 F1 Singapore GP, the Briton was able to get his tires heated quicker than the others.
Asked about the difference between him and Russell’s performance this weekend, the British champion felt the Mercedes W13 could be moody with its working window, performing well at some tracks and not at others.
In a surprise performance, the Mercedes champion managed his quickest lap within a tenth of a second of the Ferrari and the Red Bull up front.
Lewis hamilton is vegan
Formula 1 megastar Lewis Hamilton has revealed his ‘go-to’ choice of vegan food, after the Mercedes man opened up on the benefits of his plant based diet.
Hamilton has adopted a vegan diet since 2017, following the influence of a friend from New York.
Five years on, the Englishman has spoken on his favourite plant-based food to eat, revealing his love for hummus – something Hamilton did not even like prior to his diet change. He told Vanity Fair: “I used to look at hummus and I was like, ‘No way would I ever eat hummus!’
“And I love it now. It’s my go-to thing every day.” After moving to his plant-based diet the seven-time world champion was warned by doctors that he may not receive the proteins he requires to meet the extremities of competing in a Formula 1 car.
Hamilton though has since proved those claims wrong, having five of his seven world titles since becoming a vegan. He went on: “I mean, I’ve won five world titles since then. I’ve been more consistent than I ever was in the past. So it just takes proving people wrong. And that’s what I did.”
