Lewis Hamilton has enjoyed tremendous success throughout his Formula 1 career to date, and he will be aiming for a lot more to come as he settles into the 2023 F1 season driving for Mercedes for the 11th consecutive year.
Beginning his motorsport career at a young age, Hamilton quickly rose through the ranks of karting and junior formulae.
