Published by Pennant Books 2007
This eagerly awaited book is the first real insight into
racing's hottest property that describes how racing
phenomenon Lewis Hamilton becomes the first black
racer to penetrate the heady heights of the most
glamorous of sporting arenas.
While other books regurgitate what many readers
already know about the new F1 star, sports author
Brian Belton has written a book that cuts deep into
the world of motor racing.
Unlike others, Belton does not shy away from analysing
the place of a black driver in a very white sport, exploring
his motivations and strategy as a racer and a man and how
the Hertfordshire Hurricane has lit up the Grand Prix
universe for a whole new public that he now promises to be
one of the greatest names in British motor sport history,
creating possibilities for many who would not dared to
dream they even had a chance of living the dream.
