Lewis Hamilton, the devourer of Formula 1 statistics

The brands in which he has already left his name and those in which he is about to match other legends of the Maximum

As with those successful athletes, Lewis Hamilton he is loved and hated in equal parts. While some value him for his conductive talent and temperament, others do not stop minimizing his successes and for that they compare him with other stars of the F1 of other times.
