Lewis Hamilton – Bio

As you are probably aware, not all sports have to take place on grass fields or athletic tracks. Some sports, in fact, don’t require the athlete in question to be standing at all. Take Formula 1 motor racing for example. This motor racing sport is, without question, one of the most popular forms of sport on the planet and is most definitely the most popular type of motor racing. Over the years, we’ve seen some truly spectacular formula 1 racing drivers who have helped this once humble motor racing sport gain a near-cult following and become one of the most lucrative activities on the planet.

Who is Lewis Hamilton?

Lewis Carl David Hamilton is a professional Formula 1 racing driver who is currently driving for team Mercedes AMG Petronas’. His date of birth is the 7th of January, 1985 and his height is 5ft 9 inches. Lewis was born in Stevenage, England. You can see his profile on Formula One (F1 site).

He was a sporty child growing up so he was always fit and active. It wasn’t sport that was his primary interest, though. Instead, his main interests lay in cars and motor vehicles. His father gave him a remote-control car at just six years of age, and he was hooked from that very moment. He actually entered racing competitions for remote-controlled cars, and he did extremely well.  

He played football in his free time and considered trying out as a pro footballer. He instead raced in Go Kart contests and would win consistently. In 2001 he started his career as a racing driver, and despite crashing, he went on to become dominant in formula three.

In 2007 he made his debut for Formula 1, finishing third. He then placed second, before winning the Hungarian Grand Prix. Having signed with Mercedes, Lewis has consistently found himself in contention for the top spot at various Grand Prix events, and he is also one of the most marketable drivers in the history of the sport.

Endorsements and Puma

One of Lewis’ many endorsements, is one with Puma as you can see here. This sportswear brand is one of the most popular brands in the industry. Many of the most popular Puma products endorsed by Lewis are trainers. The latest products soon to drop are the Kart Cat X trainers which combine engineered cushioning and comfort of LQD Cell technology for the ultimate in comfort, style, and performance. For when you’re behind the wheel, the Kart Cat X trainers have to be seen and tried to be believed.
