2007 witnessed the greatest debut Grand Prix season in history, as McLaren's 22-year-old novice Lewis Hamilton set the sporting world alight with his extraordinary on-track exploits. The buzz surrounding this young man had been growing, but no one could have been prepared for the way he exploded onto the Formula One scene with podium finishes in his first nine races, including wins in Canada and the United States, to become the youngest person ever to top the drivers' championship.Allegations of illicit team orders in Monaco, and a cloak-and-dagger espionage scandal involving McLaren and rivals Ferrari have added spice to a season in which F1 has been gloriously thrust back into the limelight, while the sometimes fractious relationship between Hamilton and his teammate Fernando Alonso has also made headlines. But the biggest story of all has been Hamilton himself, and many within F1 are now predicting that this young man will dominate the scene for years to come. In this book, author Gareth Rogers chronicles the rise of British sport's new superstar, charting his early days and his progression from karts to cars, followed by the whirlwind success of his record-breaking first season.
