The Grenada government has issued a congratulatory message to Lewis Hamilton for sealing his third drivers’ world title recently in the United States.
Hamilton’s victory in the US saw him draw level with racing greats Sir Jackie Stewart and Ayrton Senna as a three-time world champion.
A government statement quotes Prime Minister Dr.Keith Mitchell as saying “Hamilton has cemented his place as one of the best Formula One drivers in history, and we are very proud of him.”
Meanwhile, Minister for Sports, Emmalin Pierre, says Hamilton continues to make all Grenadians proud with his victories, “as he shows the possibilities for all persons with focus and dedication on the goals they intend to achieve in life.”
Hamilton, whose paternal grand parent is Grenadian, competed in Mexico on the weekend – the first of his final three races before the season ends.
