Lewis Hamilton Parents: Meet Carmen Larbalestier and Anthony Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton’s full name is Sir Lewis Carl Davidson Hamilton. In 1998, Hamilton enrolled in the McLaren Young Driver Program. Hamilton became the first and so far only black driver to compete in the Formula One championship as a result of a Formula One drive with McLaren from 2007 to 2012. Hamilton accomplished a great deal in his first season, coming in one point behind Kimi Räikkönen to take second place.



He overtook another driver on the final lap of the season’s final race the next season to win his first title and become the then-youngest Formula One World Champion in history. Hamilton signed a contract with Mercedes in 2013 following six years with McLaren.

Hamilton’s highly successful run began in 2014 when regulations were changed to require the use of turbo-hybrid engines. Since then, he has won six more driver’s championships. In 2014 and 2015, while engaged in a heated battle with teammate Nico Rosberg, he won back-to-back championships.



Following Rosberg’s retirement, Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari became Hamilton’s main rival in two close championship races. Hamilton twice overcame point deficits midseason to win consecutive championships again in 2017 and 2018. In 2019 and 2020, he won his third and fourth titles in a row to tie Schumacher’s record of seven driver championships.
