About this deal

As the story of his rookie season in F1 and the route to get there it was an interesting view on Lewis' motivations, but it was a little self-indulgent and repetitive. Lewis ci permette di entrare nel suo mondo, ci mostra come tutto è cominciato, i sacrifici fatti da lui e dalla sua famiglia, i suoi sogni e le sue speranze. It is important to find your own way, then keep your mind clear and maintain the right level of motivation. This book by the young Lewis Hamilton contains honest, revealing and fascinating details about his life up to the end of the 2007 season (his rookie season) where he finished second in the Championship.

I would have loved loved loved this book if it was following the events of 2016 or 2021 because that is honestly a need.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. In his first season in F1, Lewis Hamilton thrilled the world of motor racing by finishing on the podium in his first nine consecutive races – the first driver to do so in the sport's 57-year history – and drove to victories in Canada, America, Hungary and Japan. If you stick to your beliefs and your true values in life, I believe things work out right in the end.

My mum is a huge and important part of my life and has always been there in the background wishing me success from afar. By the age of eight he was racing karts, at ten he drove to his first British championship, and at thirteen he was signed to the McLaren team. The most disappointing thing about this book though is the fact that his junior single seater career is skipped over in just one chapter. The best way to see this book is not as an exhaustive account of his career up to 2008 but more as an in-depth account of his debut season with a brief account of the back story. At the time of this writing (Dec 2020) he has most individual race wins in F1 (95) vs M Shumacher's 91.I love Lewis Hamilton, believe me I do and I also believe that he is ONE of the greatest drivers to ever race in formula one. It just rounded off the whole year and, when I was mentioned a couple of times, it made me feel proud to be part of that team. I was only eleven and heavily into my karting by then, going to race tracks at weekends and having a great time. In his first season in F1, Lewis Hamilton thrilled the world of motor racing by finishing on the podium in his first nine consecutive races -- the first driver to do so in the sport's 57-year history -- and drove to victories in Canada, America, Hungary and Japan. The whole operation period was a very traumatic time for us all, in particular Nic, who, when the time came to take off his plaster casts, thought the doctors were going to cut his legs off.

One of the most interesting parts of this season was the inter team battle with Fernando Alonso and the spygate saga so to read about that is good. Nothing is left to chance, no stone left unturned, in pursuit of greater speed, efficiency and effectiveness in all areas of a racing team. In all honesty, at the end, I just felt it had been a really intense, crazy year and, truly, I did not feel gutted by the outcome. He looks back in detail at the 2007 World Championship: his four race wins, the frightening crash in Germany, his rivalry with team-mate Fernando Alonso, his special relationship with Ron Dennis, and what it's like living under the spotlight of the paparazzi -- right up to the last race of the season in Brazil.I wouldn’t recommend it to the average reader since it’s more focused on his first year in F1 than an autobiography but as a fan, it was great to get an inside look into how Lewis was experiencing things at the time. He's an interesting racer, being the first black one in F1 but that doesn't really show in this book. So, too, does the day I was confirmed as Fernando’s team-mate, as a race driver in the team, and all the other testing. I know all of this is not something that can be achieved in one year, as it takes time to evolve – especially if you are striving to become the best in the world.

Since young, Lewis faced lots of racism from other drivers, however he made those racist comments into great driving skills to prove them wrong. Dad is my biggest supporter, and a fantastic father, without whom I may not have even discovered I had any talent for racing. I would recommend a third-person biography of Lewis rather than this autobiography which did not suit the best when it was written and now, it has become entirely obsolete!

Hearing how he was raised and his value system makes me proud to be a super admirer of this young man. That accident was a shaker for me, a reminder of what these cars can do and it was a big part of my early learning experience with the team. Fortunately for me I was unhurt, but the car was quite badly damaged and it set us back in our test programme. I think having all that thrown at you in your rookie season and finishing 2nd in the World Championship is impressive.
