Thank You Mr. Hamilton

Don't be misleaded as reference to Mr. Hamilton is to Anthony Hamilton, father of "The Next Big Thing" in F1 Lewis Hamilton.

Hamilton's paternal grandparents emigrated to the United Kingdom from Grenada in the 1950s. His grandfather worked on the London Underground.His mother, and father Anthony (who is now a successful IT Consultant) who named Lewis after the US Olympic gold medal winning athlete Carl Lewis,separated when Lewis was two. Lewis grew up with his father, step-mother and half-brother Nicholas who suffers from cerebral palsy. At six, he began his racing career when Anthony bought Lewis his first go-kart. He held down three jobs to support Lewis' career and still found enough time to attend all of Lewis' races.When he was 11, Lewis approached Ron Dennis and told him, "I'm going to race for you one day...I'm going to race for McLaren" and was soon signed to McLaren's development programme.

On June 10th Giles Vilenueve circuit, montreal, Canada the venue of Canadian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton won his Ist F1 race and with that took the sole lead in World Championships.At the end of the race Mr. Hamilton was in tears, the dream that he had seen 16 years ago has come true.
