Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton (born on January 7, 1985) is a British racing driver currently racing for the Mercedes team. Hamilton has won 7 World Drivers' Championships (tied with Michael Schumacher).


Hamilton joined the McLaren Young Driver Program in 1998, which served as his entry point into F1. He became the first and, to this day, the only black driver to compete in racing. Hamilton has set multiple world records, and his debut season concluded with a second-place finish alongside Kimi Räikkönen. In the following season, he dramatically won another race and secured a crucial overtake on the final lap of the last race of the season, becoming the youngest-ever F1 World Champion. After six years with McLaren, he signed with Mercedes in 2013 and has been with the team since then.



McLaren (2007–2012)

In 2007, Hamilton won his first Grand Prix at the Canadian Grand Prix, which was also his sixth race in Formula One. Hamilton partnered with two-time defending World Champion Fernando Alonso in his debut season with McLaren. He became the first and, as of 2023, the only black driver to compete in the series. After his first podium finish, Hamilton finished as the runner-up in the 2007 World Drivers' Championship by just one point, setting several records including the most consecutive podium finishes since debut and the most podium finishes in a debut season. Throughout the season, Hamilton was involved in several incidents with Alonso, leading to strained relations between the driver and the team, ultimately resulting in the termination of Alonso's contract with McLaren by mutual consent in November. After a successful first season with McLaren, Hamilton signed a multi-million-pound contract extension with the team until 2012.


McLaren MP4-26

The McLaren team lineup for 2011 consisted of two world champions, British drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton, who finished second and fifth, respectively, in the championship. The team also secured second place in the Constructors' Championship, accumulating an impressive total of 497 points. It was a great year for the team, with Lewis Hamilton earning 227 points and securing three victories in the Chinese Grand Prix, German Grand Prix, and Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The construction and decoration of this display car feature the distinctive elements associated with McLaren. This iconic display car is a perfect showcase highlight.

Paul Oz

Senna 'Eau Rouge'

Ayrton Senna in the dynamic of Eau Rouge into Raidillon, unveiled at Autosport International in 2019 to mark 25 years, and immediately bought by McLaren to show on their famous MTC Boulevard. Modelled on real life with myself as the stunt body being the same height and a similar build to Ayrton, in Ayrton's suit, boots and helmet. Perhaps the first time I have suffered for my art – this position was excruciating! Adding to the realism with the strain of holding it repeatedly creating a dynamic that I could never have faked, the 'oversteer dance' that many viewers do in front of him is the perfect appraisal. This bronze is the thing that changed everything, is even what I am usually introduced by now. And the start of a 10 year project with McLaren to permanently immortalise their world champions. Limited editions are available in bronze: 60% scale 110cm 35kg
