Lewis Hamilton in the MP4-12C
As Lewis completes his last race as a McLaren driver, relive the time he drove us in an MP4-12C…
Posted: 26 Nov 2012
Lewis hasn't taken delivery of his 12C yet, a candy-apple-red car with black wheels, red brake calipers, carbon inserts in the engine bay, and a red-over-black interior. He'll keep it at his home near Zurich in Switzerland, he says, and, despite the adrenalised day job, insists that he still enjoys driving for the sheer hell of it. He isn't taking up tiddlywinks or meditation just yet, though the Bob Marley fixation hints at a mellower side (the helmet he wore at the Indian GP honouring the great man was approved by Bob's widow, Rita).
