 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.

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!
