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.

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.

2014 ITALIAN GRAND PRIX
