Lewis Hamilton - Youngest Winner of F1 World Championship

Nov 04, 2008
Lewis Hamilton, at the age of 23, the brightest star of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 team and prominent TAG Heuer ambassador, has won F1 World Championship at Sao Paulo's Interlagos Circuit, having highlighted Formula 1 history as the youngest person to claim an F1 World Championship.

In 2007, the McLaren Mercedes driver placed second by a single point to Kimi Raikkonen, Scuderia Ferrari driver, also on the list of the brand's ambassadors.

Jean-Christophe Babin, TAG Heuer President and CEO, says TAG Heuer is really proud to congratulate the winner and have a true champion among the brand's ambassadors. Lewis Hamilton's human endeavor marvels everyone, as he performs at the peak of his potential, even being under the highest pressure. The driver is an ideal representative of the TAG Heuer spirit, along with Kimi Raikkonen, Tiger Woods, and Maria Sharapova.

Lewis Hamilton became the brand's ambassador in 2003, having joined the list of other talented and highly successful F1 drivers associated with TAG Heuer, including Juan-Manuel Fangio, Emerson Fittipaldi, Nikki Lauda, James Hunt, Gilles Villeneuve, Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansel, Sebastian Vettel, Mika Hakkinen, and Kimi Raikkonen.

Jean-Christophe Babin has expressed his delight on the fact that for the second consecutive year a TAG Heuer Ambassador becomes Number One in the racing world. All the members of the brand's team are proud of TAG Heuer close partnership with McLaren that happens to be one of the longest in the sports history. They are also proud of the timekeeping devices they have developed together, as TAG Heuer timing instruments have equipped every McLaren car since 1985.
