As a six-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton is one of the all-time greats. Making his Formula One debut in 2007, he almost started off his career with a championship losing out by just one point to Kimi Raikkonen in the Ferrari. 

However, just 12 months later, he won his maiden world title in the most dramatic of ways passing Timo Glock on the last lap in Brazil. He then went through the next coming years in an uncompetitive car as he saw Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel win titles. 


But Hamilton’s time for championship wins arrived once again - he beat Nico Rosberg in Abu Dhabi for his second in 2014 and once again for a third one year later. After a disappointing 2016, Hamilton was back on top in 2017 to then win three consecutive titles which leaves him as a six-time world champion and counting. 


Just one more and he matches Michael Schumacher’s record for seven championships - who is the G.O.A.T?
