How old was Hamilton when he won his first F1 race?

In 2007, a new legend was about to enter the sport with McLaren. It was none other than the first and only driver of color in Formula 1 during that time, Lewis Hamilton. With his very first race, he established that he may be a rookie but he knew how to race and could easily take on the top brass with his talent. Lewis went against Fernando Alonso almost immediately but it wasn’t until the Canadian GP that he had a taste of champagne at the top of the podium.

Lewis Hamilton dominated the race right from the start, going toe to toe with the legends of the sport and became a race winner in his rookie season at the age of a mere 22 years. He was one of the youngest and had the most brilliant talent the sport had ever seen. Lewis was so good that even Hollywood stars couldn’t stop themselves from praising him.

After 16 years of magnificent racing, Lewis Hamilton is currently looking forward to another shot at the 8th driver’s title which will put him at the top of the field. Mercedes is throwing everything they can to change their car from the foundation.

But will it be enough to get him the coveted eighth title? Tell us your predictions for the next season in the comments below.
