SIX-TIME WORLD CHAMPION LEWIS HAMILTON 2019 RACING OVERALLS
Demonstrably, Great Britain's six-time Formula 1 World Champion Driver Lewis Hamilton is one of the greatest and most gifted racing drivers of all time. He began racing karts in 1993, aged only eight, and was invited to join the McLaren driver development programme when barely 14.

Graduating to racing cars, he achieved great success in each successive 'schoolroom' category until in 2007 he gained a place alongside double-World Champion Fernando Alonso in the McLaren Formula 1 team.

In 2008 he won his first Formula 1 Drivers World Championship title and after moving to the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One team in 2013 he has gone on to add five more World Championship crowns, in 2014-15, and three more consecutively through 2017-18-19. He has become absolutely the dominant race driving superstar of modern times...

Against this background, any verified Lewis Hamilton artefacts have become sought-after by enthusiasts, fans and dedicated collectors worldwide.

Here we are privileged to offer the six-times World Champion's 2019 race suit No 23 - Serial No 00160547 - which Lewis Hamilton wore during the 2019 World Championship-winning Formula 1 season.

In particular, this suit was worn by Lewis during practice sessions at the following Grand Prix races - Monaco Free Practice 2, Austria Free Practice 2 and Silverstone Free Practice 2 - all as verified by the renowned Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 team's meticulous records.

This is a unique opportunity to acquire for posterity a set of the six-times World Champion's racing overalls...

Just one bid and they can be yours.

Collection to be made at a mutually agreed date
