Watch out for Lewis Hamilton
FIFTEEN year old British driver Lewis Hamilton walked away with victory last weekend in the Young Hopefuls section of the Elf Master Karting competition at Paris Bercy Exhibition Centre. He beat a number of older drivers, notably British American Racing's new signing Anthony Davidson.
Hamilton has been a protege of the McLaren-Mercedes organization for a couple of years and is developing well. This year he has been racing in Formula A karting for the Team mbm.com operation alongside Nico Rosberg, son of 1982 World Champion Keke Rosberg.
