A short bio on Lewis Hamilton

Born July 1, 1985, in Great Britain, Lewis Hamilton is electrifying fans of F1 racing with his caution-to-the-wind style, cat-like moves, and freakishly fast speeds. At 23 years of age, this youngster has already scored 8 wins, and looks to do much more damage to the circuit now that he's right at home with team McLaren.

Like many other racers on the circuit, Hamilton started his career with karts in 1995. He took top honors in the Masters at Bercy in 2000, followed by a move to single-seaters in '01. Hamilton took part in the Formula Renault Winter Series that year and finished 5th overall. He would return to Renault the following year and finish 3rd in the championship standings.
