My Story gives the real account from Lewis himself, as he sets the record straight about his colourful life on and off the track. Given a grounded upbringing by his dedicated father in unremarkable Stevenage, Lewis tells about how he first tried out go-karting while on a cut-price family holiday in Ibiza.In his book he gives the real version of events at a motor sport dinner where, as a nine-year-old wearing a borrowed suit, he approached McLaren team boss Ron Dennis with the immortal words that were to change his life forever. He rose rapidly through the Junior and Formula ranks, dominating every series with his raw speed and canny race craft. Here Lewis candidly recalls those key moments that shaped his career and went some way towards compensating for the sacrifices made by his father Anthony in getting his son to the top.

Lewis Hamilton: New Kid on the Grid

by Ian Stafford
Published :

List Price  = £16.99

 

Our Price  = £16.99


Lewis Hamilton: New Kid on the Grid is the definitive record of Hamiltons rapid elevation to almost the very top of motor racing in just nine months. A rookie from Hertfordshire, Hamilton was presented with a golden opportunity by McLaren to drive one of the best cars on the grid for the 2007 season. Surpassing all expectations, he quickly went on to record a podium in his first ever Grand Prix, notched up four, back-to-back second places and then won his first Grand Prix in Canada. After only six races, he was leading the world drivers championship. At this point, the season took on a life of its own. The whole summer was dominated by a struggle for supremacy between Hamilton and his defending world champion teammate Fernando Alonso, who had not signed up to McLaren to be usurped by a rookie. Add to this the serious accusations of spying between Ferrari and McLaren and the 2007 Formula One season soon became one of the most dramatic in living memory. In the end it all came down to the wire, at the last race of the season in Brazil. The outcome, like the season, had an amazing twist to it, but Hamiltons golden future was secured. Lewis Hamilton: New Kid on the Grid relives all the drama of an unbelievable season and celebrates the arrival of the first British Formula One hero since Nigel Mansell. Beautifully illustrated, it pays tribute to the outstanding achievements of an amazing new sporting superstar.

Lewis Hamilton: The Full Story

by Mark Hughes

List Price  = £7.99

 

Our Price  = £7.99


Published to coincide with start of the hotly-anticipated 2008 season, this book is a widely acclaimed and hugely successful hardback published at the climax of the 2007 World Championship. It has considerable brand new material added to the paperback edition. Veteran F1 journalist Mark Hughes unearths the true foundations that have enabled a personable and down-to-earth 22-year-old from a sleepy village in Hertfordshire to achieve the most successful start to a career the sport has ever seen.This book helps you discover how it all began, from the day Hamiltons father bought a hyperactive six-year-old a go-kart, to the British, European and World karting titles that followed. You can learn how at a motorsport awards ceremony in 1995, a plucky 10-year-old Hamilton asked Ron Dennis (the principal of McLaren F1 Racing) of the opportunity to race for his team in the future and how in 1998, at 13-years-old, McLaren duly signed him in a long-term agreement that made him the youngest driver in history with an F1 contract.Hughes takes us through the intervening years, right up to the explosive 2007 Formula one season when he became not only the first black driver ever to race an F1 car, but the first driver of any colour to stand on the podium at the end of their first nine races. As Sir Jackie Stewart said, Lewis is a man of the people and the people will love him for it. Brand new material in this paperback edition includes: interviews with former F1 drivers who proffer their opinion on his qualities, where he needs to make improvements, where he stacks-up against the greats, and what his ultimate potential is; an insider view of testing during close season; and, a preview of the 2008 season and a detailed run-down of his prospects against the new team line-ups, including his new team-mate at McLaren.
