Lewis Hamilton broke off professional ties with his Dad for today’s glory

Mercedes will have huge warchest to bully rivals for Lewis Hamilton replacement

 

It is no lie that F1 is one of the most expensive sports in the world, with most of the drivers arriving from a rather distinguished background. Consequently, the odds of someone hailing from a financially struggling family making it to the sport was pretty much nil.

 

But, then arrived Lewis Hamilton, who broke the money barrier and made a sound statement that F1 does indeed prioritize talent over money.

 

 

The Briton marched his way into the sport with massive backing from McLaren. But, one might wonder, does McLaren deserve most of the credits for Hamilton’s astonishing career? Well, no! Above all of the backers that Hamilton cherished over the years stood his own father, Anthony Hamilton.

Hamilton Sr was indeed one of the biggest reasons why Hamilton is embracing such an impeccable stint in Formula One, finding himself on the verge of breaking Michael Schumacher’s record.

 

 

There were even claims that Anthony had worked extremely hard to cover all the expenses that tagged along with his son’s motorsport career. Well, they are indeed true. In fact, Anthony worked four different jobs until the point where Hamilton began to get a hang of racing.

What jobs did Anthony do to cover the expenses of Lewis Hamilton?
Well, According to reports, the senior Briton was working as an IT manager.

 

But, he had to quit his job and become a contractor to earn more money just so he could keep his son active on the racing track. Apart from the couple of jobs, he also did other separate jobs, which remains unknown.

 

 

After Hamilton began to deliver strong results, Anthony decided to sign himself up as his son’s manager. However, unfortunately, he lost that too, as Hamilton broke off his professional ties with Anthony after 2009, leaving a temporary dent in the duo’s relationship.

“We came from nothing, and I didn’t have anyone telling me to do this or do that, I had to learn myself,” he said according to SilverArrows.net.

 

 

But one thing I knew was that you’ve just got to be positive and believe in yourself. Sometimes people use that term ‘believe in yourself’ flippantly, but the reality is you have got to believe.”
