Lewis Hamilton: Silverstone renames pit straight after British seven-time champion

Silverstone owners the British Racing Drivers’ Club have named the track’s pit straight after Lewis Hamilton in honour of his achievements this year. It is the first time part of the track has been named after any individual. The Mercedes driver has won a record seven British Grands Prix and has celebrated six of them on the podium that overlooks the new Hamilton Straight. The straight is where the traditional track invasion takes place after the race and where fans celebrate in front of the podium. Hamilton’s first win in 2008 was held on a different track layout, on which the pits were at the other end of the track.
