Many happy returns!

With three world championships to his name, Lewis Hamilton has had plenty to celebrate during a storied career that has put him well on the way to becoming a Formula One legend.

The British driver celebrates his birthday on January 7, turning 32.

Hamilton was F1’s youngest-ever world champion when he won his maiden title in 2008, until Sebastian Vettel broke that record. He’s the only British driver to have won consecutive world titles after clinching the crown in 2014 and 2015, and the only Englishman to have won three championships.

The Mercedes driver is second on the all-time race wins list with 53, behind only Michael Schumacher.
