2007 CANADIAN GRAND PRIX

This was the Briton’s first-ever F1 win of his career and he finally made it to the podium at his sixth attempt.

Hamilton, 22, crossed the line ahead of Nick Heidfeld and Alexander Wurz at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

2008 MONACO GRAND PRIX

In wet conditions at the famed south coast circuit, Hamilton raced to victory despite colliding with a wall and being forced into the pits with a back-end puncture early on. Luckily for him, he only lost three places and managed to storm to his first victory in Monaco.

2009 HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX

This was a vital win for Hamilton. Ahead of the race, he hadn’t registered a single championship point in five previous run-outs but he capitalised on a botched Fernando Alonso pit-stop to cruise home.

2012 US GRAND PRIX

Hamilton signed off his McLaren career in style and showed just why Mercedes wanted him for the 2013 season.

And this was also the race where Hamilton sauntered past Sebastian Vettel in a superb overtaking move – watch it below:

2014 ITALIAN GRAND PRIX

This race was all about recovery for Hamilton – who forced a mistake from Nico Rosberg to win at Monza – before going on to record five consecutive race wins (his longest winning streak to date).

What does the rest of 2017 hold in-store for Manor?

A report in Sky News revealed that the Banbury-based outfit was on the verge of a financial collapse after hopes of a buyout faded. It has emerged that members of the Manor staff were told on Friday morning that Manor’s long-terms plans had not been secured.

Instead, FRP Advisory has been appointed as joint administrator of JRSL. Joint administrator Geoff Rowley explained the situation in the following statement:

“The team has made significant progress under its new ownership since the start of 2015, the highlight of which included securing a Constructors’ Championship point in the preceding F1 season, but the position remains that operating a F1 team requires significant ongoing investment,” explained Rowley.

“During recent months, the senior management team has worked tirelessly to bring new investment to the team to secure its long term future, but regrettably has been unable to do so within the time available.

“Therefore, they have been left with no alternative but to place JRSL into administration.

“The joint administrators are currently assessing options for the group.”

Rowley admits Manor, which narrowly missed out on 10th place in last year’s Constructors’ championship as well as the associated prize money, is running out of time to take part in the season-opening grand prix in Melbourne.

“The team’s participation will depend on the outcome of the administration process and any related negotiations with interested parties in what is a very limited window of opportunity,” he added.

“No redundancies have been made and all staff have been paid in full to the end of December.

”The ongoing staff position will however be dependent on whether new investment can be secured in the limited time available and the joint administrators will continue to review the ongoing financial position.”

The Polish driver who raced in F1 from 2006 to 2010 was forced to end his career in Grand Prix racing after sustaining a severe right hand injury in an off-season rally event in 2011.

After being sidelined and remaining in recovery mode for over a year, Kubica had hoped to be able to eventually return to F1 racing but excess weakness in his right hand prevented that possibility from materializing.

Kubica has focused on rallying in the European and World Rally Championships in the past years but always entertained the ambition of returning to circuit racing.

In order to gauge his level of ability, Kubica competed last year in several circuit events – the 12 Hours of Mugello, the Renault Sport Trophy round at Spa-Francorchamps and the 6 Hours of Vallelunga.

He also took part at the end of 2016 in the World Endurance Championship’s rookie test in Bahrain, driving a ByKolles LMP1 car, and looked mightily impressive according to those who were present.

The former F1 BMW driver confirmed via his Facebook page his participation next weekend in the 24-hour race in Dubai.

“Dear fans, I would like to confirm that between 12 and 14 January I’m in Dubai. I’ll ride in the national composition Porsche GT3 and try the 24-hour race. By the way, happy new year! Robert.”
