Lewis Hamilton received last night the prizes for Best British Competition Driver, Best International Racing Driver and Rookie of the Year at the Autosport Awards held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane.
Viviane Senna, who presented Lewis with an award, compared the British driver with her brother Ayrton Senna: “He reminds me of Ayrton, as a pilot.”
After receiving his awards, Lewis said that he was more nervous when he received these awards than he was in 1995 at the age of 10 when he was also honored with Autosport Awards. Thinking how he lost the Championship title this year Lewis also made a promise for the next Formula One season: “You have to lose to learn how to win. We’ll be right there next year.”
