Lewis Hamilton: My Story
About this deal
I hope he updates the book considering there were a lot of interesting events in his F1 career that happened after 2007.
I remember that first week of testing at Silverstone when I wore some other dude’s race suit to start with, and it smelt. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. I felt proud of the team for the way they had worked through to the end of a really difficult, troubled year.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. I felt sore for myself, but I felt happy for Kimi – he is a cool guy and he has been a great competitor this year. It is important to find your own way, then keep your mind clear and maintain the right level of motivation. What I was looking for was his personal views on this season he just had, his relationship with Alonso and all other controversial topics which he never touches.
Mas por enquanto essa é a melhor fonte que encontrará sobre a trajetória de Lewis, já que é contada na visão do próprio. In My Story, for the first time Lewis opens up about his stunning debut season, including the gripping climax to the 2007 F1 World Championship, as well as his dad Anthony, his home life and his early years.
One of the few bad days came when I had a big accident testing the new MP4-22 at Valencia in January before the season.
I just hope that by writing about him, he doesn’t get too big-headed because, if he does, I will have to make sure he soon forgets it! Nic finds it extremely difficult to stand still and balance in one place; add to that the fact that he is also left-handed, which does not help his swing. 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. But bare statistics alone do scant justice to the amazing impact Lewis Hamilton has had on the sporting landscape. He looks back in detail at the 2007 World Championship -- the race wins, the frightening crash in Germany, his intense rivalry with team-mate Fernando Alonso, his special relationship with Ron Dennis, and the furore over the Ferrari allegations -- right up to the dramatic last race of the season in Brazil.I felt proud of the way the team had come through a sometimes stormy, controversial year and I felt proud, too, of my family and all my friends and supporters who had helped me to get where I was, so close to the title in my first season. If somebody had told me a year ago that I would be fighting for the World Championship at the end of the 2007 season, I would have said they were dreaming.
