Lewis Hamilton: Formula 1 Champion

Two weekends ago, reigning Formula 1 racing champ Lewis Hamilton picked up his first victory of the 2009 season. Today's video is a compilation of highlights from his successful second season in which Hamilton ultimately became the 2008 F1 Champion.

Back in the last weekend of July, Brazilian race car driver Felipe Massa suffered horrific injuries that hopefully will not mark the end of his career. However, all was not bad news coming from the 2009 Hungarian Grand Prix, as reigning Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton scooped up his first win of the 2009 F1 season.

Try as I did, I was unsuccessful in finding a compelling web video of Lewis Hamilton's victory in Budapest. However, I found a really cool web video compilation of highlights from Hamilton's very successful 2008 F1 season, all set to a blazing tune by The Foo Fighters.. You see, Lewis Hamilton first came into Formula 1 racing in 2007, and quickly made a name for himself by breaking records and ultimately finishing second place in points standings behind Kimi Raikkonen. However, in just his second season in one of the biggest racing organizations in the world, Lewis Hamilton won his first world championship by edging out Felipe Massa by just one point. Hamilton's victory at this year's Hungarian Grand Prix just might be the catalyst for this successful driver to get back to his winning ways in F1.
