Lewis Hamilton wins battle against London neighbors!

Lewis Hamilton will soon be able to move into his new London home, which has been uninhabited for the past five years. The house consists of a large living room complete with a fireplace, a well-equipped kitchen, six bedrooms and the garden that embraces the entire property.

The house was owned by the British designer Christopher Bailey and was also inhabited by the English financier and environmentalist Benjamin James Goldsmith. However, Hamilton has not yet managed to live in his new London home due to bureaucratic problems caused by the neighbors.

They are largely celebrities from the world of economics and finance and artists worried that the presence of the motorist could attract the attention of the mass media, undermining the tranquility of the area. Lewis, meanwhile, has won yet another legal battle in court, which will allow him to renovate the garden: he will be able to cut a plum tree, which he himself has proved to be sick, against the opinion of the neighbors who had reported him to the councils of borough of Kensington and Chelsea for urban landscape breach.

In 2020, he had obtained the green light to be able to build a shed against the advice of the neighbors, who were worried that parties would be organized in the area. In 2018, as soon as details emerged about the work the pilot wanted to do on his property, the neighbors gathered to try to slow down the project through a petition.

Finding no evidence for the work to be done inside, they therefore concentrated on the outside with two appeals, both of which were lost.

Hamilton's career

Lewis Hamilton is, together with Michael Schumacher, the most successful champion in the history of Formula 1, with 7 world championships won: in 2008 with McLaren and in 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 with Mercedes.

He is also the driver with the most victories, podiums, pole positions and points in the history of the competition. Since his debut in the top category, Hamilton has won at least one race and one pole position during the world championship, making him the only driver in the history of the highest formula to have succeeded from the first season for fifteen consecutive years.

With seven world titles he is the most successful Briton of all time, as well as the only Anglo-Saxon to have managed to triumph for four consecutive editions (in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020). His race number is 44. Lewis was born in Stevenage, in the county of Hertfordshire, to Anthony Hamilton and Carmen Larbalestier.

His maternal family is originally from England, while his paternal family comes from Central America, more precisely from the State of Grenada, in the Caribbean Sea, from which his grandfather arrived in the United Kingdom in 1954.

Following the separation of the parents in 1987 , Hamilton lived with his mother and half-sisters Nicola and Samantha until the age of twelve, when he decided to move in with his father, stepmother Linda and stepbrother Nicolas.

He discovered his passion for motors in 1991, after receiving an electric model car as a gift from his father. Realizing Lewis' outstanding talent for racing, Anthony went into debt to get him on a kart, serving as his son's manager until 2010.

He is an Arsenal fan. He was engaged to Pussycat Dolls lead vocalist Nicole Scherzinger from November 2007 to February 2015. Since 2017 he has adopted a vegan diet and, again from that year, he has been involved in initiatives aimed at safeguarding the environment and animals.
