Lewis Hamilton, MBE (born 7 January 1985) is a British Formula One racing driver from England, currently racing for the Mercedes AMG team. Lewis Hamilton is the 2008 Formula One World Champion.
During pre-season testing in Jerez Lewis Hamilton along with Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg showed themselves as the team to beat. This was realised at the Australian Grand Prix where Lewis Hamilton took pole. Lewis Hamilton was forced to retire, but Nico Rosberg dominated to win by over 20 seconds. In Malaysia, Lewis Hamilton’s potential was realised when Lewis Hamilton won from pole in a Mercedes one-two, the first since 1955. In Bahrain Mercedes were unstoppable with Nico Rosberg claiming pole in a Mercedes front-row lockout. Lewis Hamilton got a better start but still battled hard with Nico Rosberg through the early part of the race. Mercedes chose split strategies for their drivers, and Lewis Hamilton opened up a gap on the faster option tyres. But the safety car was called out after Esteban Gutiérrez rolled his Sauber. Lewis Hamilton was forced to battle Nico Rosberg in a gripping race to the finish with tight wheel-to-wheel racing. In the end Lewis Hamilton won, taking consecutive victories for the first time since the 2010 season, when Lewis Hamilton won in Turkey and Canada.
This completed a hat-trick of wins, the first of Lewis Hamilton’s career. Mercedes continued to dominate in Spain where Lewis Hamilton once again set pole position and went on to win the race — his fourth successive win — despite close competition from team-mate Nico Rosberg who finished in second place. At Monaco Lewis Hamilton qualified 2nd behind Nico Rosberg. Nico Rosberg was investigated by the stewards after he went down the escape road at the Mirabeau corner. The resulting yellow flags forced Lewis Hamilton to back off in the final moments of the session, which could have cost Lewis Hamilton a chance at pole position. Nico Rosberg was cleared of any wrongdoing in that incident. Nico Rosberg won the race with Lewis Hamilton finishing 2nd.
In the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, Nico Rosberg won the race by over 20 seconds, having started from third (his father Keke had won the first Formula One Australian Grand Prix in 1985 in Adelaide). Nico Rosberg’s team-mate Lewis Hamilton retired due to an engine problem after starting on pole. In Malaysia Nico Rosberg finished 2nd, 17 seconds behind teammate Lewis Hamilton, but in front of Sebastian Vettel to give Mercedes-Benz their first 1–2 since Italy in 1955. In Bahrain Nico Rosberg took pole position but lost out to Lewis Hamilton at the start of the race, and eventually finished second to his team-mate, despite putting him under pressure numerous times. Nico Rosberg said: “I thought I’d got him about nine times but they didn’t work” and said the race was “a day for the sport” considering the criticism that Formula One has had in 2014. In China Lewis Hamilton started fourth but fell back to sixth in the opening lap, however fought hard to finish second ahead of Fernando Alonso.
As the season moved to Europe for the Spanish Grand Prix, Nico Rosberg was pipped to pole by Lewis Hamilton despite being quicker for most of the weekend until the final lap. Nico Rosberg stayed with Lewis Hamilton for the whole race but could not get through finishing one second behind him meaning Lewis Hamilton took the championship lead for the first time in 2014. In Monaco Nico Rosberg took his second pole in as many years, however his pole was controversial as he went down the escape road at the Mirabeau corner causing yellow flags making Lewis Hamilton abort his final fast lap. Nico Rosberg had set the fastest lap of Q3 earlier on in the session. After the qualifying session concluded, Nico Rosberg was investigated by the stewards. The stewards examined video and telemetry data from the team and the FIA and determined that it could find no evidence of any offence related to the fifth turn incident. Lewis Hamilton implied that he thought Nico Rosberg had made the mistake deliberately to secure pole but the stewards saw it as an accidental incident. Nico Rosberg then went on to lead every lap to win the race by around 10 seconds ahead of Lewis Hamilton. This win gave Nico Rosberg the championship lead again and was later extended by 18 points in Canada after Lewis Hamilton failed to finish, compared to Nico Rosberg who finished 2nd in a limping car with no recovery system. Nico Rosberg first place in the Austrian Grand Prix saw his lead extended by a further 7 points. As of the end of the Austrian Grand Prix, Nico Rosberg has 165 points, with his team mate and nearest rival Lewis Hamilton having 136 points.
