Career History

Beaten by a team mate for the first time in final standings after a frustrating season in the grid’s second fastest car. Three victories countered by several stewards visits and penalties, often after clashes with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa. Finishes fifth overall.
Storming drives stymied by dubious strategy calls in early races, but successive
wins in Turkey and Canada stake claim for second drivers’ crown. Loses lead in Hungary, as MP4-25 increasingly outpaced by Red Bull and Ferrari. Wins at Spa, en route to fourth overall.
Disqualified from fourth in Australia for misleading race stewards. Averages a point
a race until round ten, when he scores shock win after car development comes good. Four poles and four further podiums, including a win in Singapore, round off the season in resurgent fashion.
At 23 he becomes the youngest world champion in Formula One history, after five wins and a further five podiums take him to the title by a single point on only his second attempt. Commits to McLaren until the end of 2012.
A stunning debut season, scoring podiums in his first nine races. Secures four
wins and six poles as he out-performs champion team mate Fernando Alonso. Title favourite until errors in final two rounds drop him to second place behind Kimi Raikkonen.
Wins the GP2 championship at his first attempt, earning himself his maiden Formula One test and a McLaren race drive for 2007.
Dominates the Formula Three Euroseries, taking the title with 15 wins, 10 fastest laps and 13 pole positions.
Graduates to the Formula Three Euroseries. Finishes fifth overall, with one victory and a further two podiums.
