In 2008 Hamilton, became the youngest driver to win the World Drivers’ Championship. The following 2009 season McLaren expected Hamilton and their new Mercedes powered MP4-24 car to cement their place at the top of the Championship. Unfortunately the design of the new car did not live up to expectation and the first half of the season was a disaster with a frustrated Hamilton calling for the car to be scraped. However, after bringing upgrades to the car, McLaren and Hamilton’s fortunes were reversed seeing them pick up two wins a second and two third place finishes seeing Hamilton finish the season in fifth place in the World Drivers’ Championship.
The off white colored Sparco suit has a wide orange band around its midriff that is edged in black. There is also orange piping around the torso and shoulder cuffs. The team’s major sponsors Vodafone (on front, back and legs) and Santander (on front and arms) feature prominently on the suit. Other sponsor patches including Hugo Boss, Johnnie Walker, Aigo and Nescafe are embroidered to the chest and upper arms.
