Lewis Hamilton Celebrates With The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Team

Lewis Hamilton went back to the pits after his win on Sunday for a Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 team photo. It was a close victory for Hamilton versus his challenger for the Formula 1 Driver's Championship, Ferrari's Felipe Massa, but on the last lap of the 71 lap race in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Hamilton managed to regain his fifth place position by passing Toyota's Timo Glock and win the title by just one point over Massa (98 vs.97 points).

Hamilton has always thanked his team throughout the season for the excellent support and technical contributions they have given to make the 2008 season the success that it was. The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes quest for the 2008 World Championship was all about teamwork and the goals that can be achieved when people work together.

Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton, his family and the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team for a job well done.
