In 2008, he successfully won the F1 World Championship in the last race of the season. Since winning the title in 2008, he subsequently finished no higher than 4th.

Racing in Spain, he was the victim of racial abuse from some Spanish supporters. His close rivalry with Spanish rider Fernando Alonso was responsible for encouraging Spanish supporters to direct abuse at Hamilton.

Regardless, Lewis Hamilton has inspired many and is seen as a great role model especially for young black people. Lewis Hamilton was named after Olympic sprint champion Carl Lewis.
