Hamilton Working Hard For A Monaco Win
MONTE-CARLO, MONACO - 2008 F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton was photographed yesterday in the paddocks at Monaco following the 2nd Practice Session for the 2010 Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix. Hamilton put in the seventh fastest time in the 2nd Practice Session driving his Vodafone McLaren Mercedes car. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso, the 2006 F1 World Champion, had the fastest Practice Session lap time in the Second Session posting a 1m 14.904 time around Monaco's 3.34 km street circuit. Second fastest was Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes GP Petronas F1 car, and he was followed by Sebastian Vettel with the third quickest time in his Red Bull Racing Team F1 car.
A few facts about Lewis Hamilton - he was born on January 7, 1985 in Stevenage in the United Kingdom and made his F1 debut in 2007 at the Australian Grand Prix. Hamiltons first ever F1 victory was in Canada in 2007. Since his debut in Formula 1, Hamilton has posted 11 F1 career wins, with the most wins scored in 2008 - the year he won the F1 World Championship driving for the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team. This year, Hamilton's teammate at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes is last years F1 World Champion Jenson Button. The two world champions now on the same team pose a formidable challenge against the highly talented 2010 F1 driver roster that includes returning seven-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher in the Mercedes GP Petronas car. Yesterday, Michael Schumacher was fifth fastest in the afternoon Practice Session on the Monaco GP circuit.
