   Lewis Hamilton is a British racing driver, who was born in Tewin, in Hertfordshire in 1985.
After winning several karting championships, Hamilton was signed by McLaren's Young Driver Programme on a development contract in 1992 when he was 12. As a result, he has been well-funded throughout his burgeoning career. He has also raced in British Formula Renault in his career, and was European kart champion in 2000.

In 2005 he won the Formula Three Euroseries racing for the dominant ASM team, having raced in the category in 2004 for Manor Motorsport using the superior Mercedes engine.

In 2006, he joined ART Grand Prix team in the GP2 Series as a replacement for the previous year's champion Nico Rosberg. His performance in the GP2 Series has been impressive. At the European GP2 event he won both races, becoming only the second driver (after Nico Rosberg) to do so in the series history and won at Monaco from pole. At the moment he leads the championship, outperforming his more experienced team mate Alexandre Premat.

He has frequently been tipped to be the first black driver in Formula 1, but McLaren boss Ron Dennis has said that he has turned down possible advertising campaigns focusing on Lewis' ethnicity.
