Hamilton has come a long way since 2008

LONDON (Reuters) – Lewis Hamilton has come a long way since he seized his first Formula One title in 2008 with a sensational last gasp overtake that turned the 23-year-old Briton into the youngest ever champion.

It seems amazing now, looking back after a career of nearly 150 races, that Hamilton is pushing 30 and still has only that one championship to his credit while 27-year-old Sebastian Vettel has won four.

If the Mercedes driver were to win the Formula One title in Abu Dhabi on Sunday, the first German to do so in a German car would be the least German champion of them all if no less deserving.

Mercedes ready for contract talks with Hamilton

LONDON (Reuters) – Mercedes can hardly wait for Sunday’s Abu Dhabi Formula One title decider to be over so they can tie Lewis Hamilton down to a long-term contract.

The 29-year-old Briton, who can become a double world champion at Yas Marina, has a year remaining on his current deal but Mercedes are looking well beyond that.
