When Lewis knew he had McLaren driveEdit

We have known Lewis and Anthony Hamilton from his time at Manor Motorsport when racing Formula Renault. Attending the F1 test at Silverstone after the Italian GP in September 2006, we were chatting with Anthony on the day that Lewis was testing the McLaren. When no-one was in ear-shot Anthony said to me, "Ron Dennis drives a hard bargain", then winked and grinned, when my face erupted and I said "What?" and about to say "so Lewis has signed?", he put a finger to his lips to indicate "keep it a secret". That was around the 20th of September. So Anthony at least had agreed a deal for Lewis to be paid for being a F1 driver before the end of September... 92.234.139.94 (talk) 18:00, 12 July 2019 (UTC)


Let's make sure we get the ethnic background of everyoneEdit

Hamilton's mother, Carmen (Larbalestier), is white British, while his father, Anthony Hamilton, is black British, making him mixed-race;

What is the point of this? The majority have eyes. I think Theresa Mays page needs an edit --- > "May is the only child of Zaidee Mary (née Barnes; 1928–1982) and Hubert Brasier (1917–1981).[17] Her father was a Church of England clergyman (and an Anglo-Catholic)[18] who was chaplain of an Eastbourne hospital."

Well? What is she? Racially? Is her father welsh? Does her mother have any Scot blood? Why is that not a thing on her page?

Is Theresa May and many others whose pages do not start like this... inbred? If not. Should their biographies not also begin with "making her/him mixed race" ? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Badarticles (talkcontribs) 06:19, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Cars 2Edit

Is there any particular reason why there is no mention of his acting role as himself in Disney Pixars "Cars 2"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.99.75.237 (talk) 20:17, 27 August 2019 (UTC)

There is no reason (which I am aware of) so I added it.

Semi-protected edit request on 11 November 2019Edit

One of the most successful drivers in the history of the sport, Hamilton's six World Championship titles is the second-most of all time, and his tally of 83 race victories is the second-most of all time
