Lewis Hamilton Net Worth $82 Million
He’s the 2008 Formula One World Champion. Hamilton was born in Stevenage, Hertfordshire. In December 1995, in age ten, he approached McLaren team principal Ron Dennis at the Autosport Awards service and told him, “I would like to race for you one day … I would like to race for McLaren.” Less than three years after McLaren and Mercedes Benz signed him to their Young Driver Support Programme. Hamilton’s contract for the McLaren driver development program made him the youngest ever driver to procure a contract which afterwards resulted in a Formula One drive.
Coming from a mixed heritage, using a black father and white mother, Hamilton is usually labelled “the first black driver in Formula One”, although Willy T. Ribbs examined a Formula One car in 1986. He’s also the primary driver of black African tradition to win a major race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in just about any area. He won the World Championship the next season. He’s won a minimum of one race in each succeeding season to date, with McLaren until 2012, and Mercedes since 2013.
