2018 Lewis Hamilton Race Used British Grand Prix AMG Mercedes Benz F1 Gloves
Pair of Puma Racing Products gloves worn by the seven-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton. The British driver used these gloves during his home Grand Prix at Silverstone in 2018. The weekend was looking great for Hamilton as he qualified on Pole ahead of Vettel’s Ferrari. However during the race at turn 3 Hamilton spun after contact from Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari which left the Brit in last place and chasing the field. He then drove to a memorable second place finish, a drive which will go down as one of the most impressive in his career.
Hamilton, driving the Mercedes PETRONAS AMG F1 W09 in 2018, would go on to win eleven of the twenty-one races that season on his way to capturing his fifth World Drivers’ Championship title. This put him in the elite company of those deemed as being the greatest drivers in the history of Formula One racing as he was tied with Juan Manuel Fangio for 5 Championships and only 2 behind Michael Schumacher who had 7.
The gloves show race use and have the all usual insignia that Hamilton has on his gloves, including sponsorship logos from watch manufacturer IWC. Hamilton’s own chevron logo is also printed on the back of the gloves, along with the Puma branding logo. The palms have a black rubberized gripper fabric with grey panels, and an FIA compliance tag is printed on the inner cuffs.
This is a great chance to own a piece of genuine racing history from F1’s ultimate record holder.
The gloves come with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
