 Lewis Hamilton Wax Work Figure Unveiled At Madame Tussauds
Lewis Hamilton Wax Work At Madame Tussauds

Cost nearly $230,000

A lifelike statue of reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton was unveiled by London's Madame Tussauds wax museum on Wednesday.

The McLaren driver in December underwent 300 measurements for the immortalisation, which was reported to have cost nearly $230,000.

His figure is complete with his full McLaren overalls and race gear, depicting him holding his helmet and gloves.

Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell and Michael Schumacher are similarly depicted at Madame Tussauds.

Exactly my point Jerry93, thank you. Jacques Villenueve also won a championship in his first three years, so I guess he's also in the running for greatest F1 driver of all time, huh beetle?

I wouldnt say he is the best, Fangio won 5 championships and held that record for over 40 years, Schumi is as 7, senna won 3. so hamilton is nowhere near the best

Gents going by the latest data trickling in from the tests this year suggest that the current champ is in for a tsunami of beating.

Actually, the latest data suggests that McLaren will be very much in the thick of things this season. Heikki Kovalainen set the 3rd fastest time at the final test in Jerez this week... only slower than Jenson Button of Brawn GP and Kaz Nakajima from Williams. The three of them are the only ones to have dipped into the 1:17 bracket. And even if Hamilton gets beaten, so what? Every world champ has been beaten. Alonso had to beat Schumi, Kimi had to beat Alonso, Hamilton had to beat Kimi. The fact remains that it's only his third season, and he was world champ in two, missing out on a rookie championship by one point previously. He had a brilliant career... from karting right up to GP2, and now in F1. He hasn't been lucking out the whole time. He's a good driver that deserves credit.

Quit lying. If you'd been watching F1 since the 80s (like I have) then you wouldn't make stupid accusations. I can give you a million reasons why there were no "Team Orders" for "anyone" (I assume you mean Timo Glock) to move over. Actually, I can give you 600 million reasons: $600 million dollars is was the Toyota F1 team's budget for last season. You think they'd give up a place, and valuable constructors points to another team? Another team powered by another companies engines? I want some of what you're smoking.

Ah, but HE DID WIN!! Given the rules that were in place last season. "Damn near" doesn't count! LOL. Just wait until this season gets under way before you decide to predict the future. Furthermore, Hamilton is only going into his 3rd season. He's already in the record books as the youngest champion EVER! Stings a bit doesn't it! LOL. Just wait until his career is over or nearing over before you want to rate his career. Does he have the potential to be one of the greatest ever? I'm SURE you know the answer to that but may not want to admit it to yourself! LOL. It's people like you that fuel his passion!! Good luck in '09 Lewis!

"The Best F1 since it started"? I'm going to assume that you mean the best DRIVER in F1 since the series started, and also assume that you're high/drunk/have only been following F1 for a year. Fangio, Mansell, Senna, Schumacher, Hakkinen, Alonso, et al have all won more than 1 championship. By the way, under these new rules, Hamilton wouldn't have even won last year. Even under the "old" rules he damn near lost the championship on the last lap of the last race. Best driver in F1 history - not even in the same category!

By the way,the new rules did not apply last year. So Hamilton won it fair and square. And although he nearly lost the championship, it still means that he DID WIN IT!Hamilton is an EXCELLENT DRIVER driving for an EXCELLENT TEAM!!

What's with you guys with your pathetic "what if' theories? What if the FIA hadn't f*cked up the Belgian GP with that ridiculous call that stripped LH of his win? What if they didn't mess up again, awarding a stupid penalty for a Turn One incident in Japan? (I can't count how many times cars have crashed each other out in turn one... I can't recall a single penalty, & Lewis didn't even make contact with anyone) What if Massa had been properly penalized for punting LH into a spin... and what if he'd been given the penalty deserved for swooping down and ramming Bourdais, instead of being allowed to continue and score a point after ruining to other drivers' chances? Quit whining already. LH is the champion. He earned it.
