Lewis Hamilton: The exceptional kid who conquered the world

He won and Anthony asked me to see out that season,” Regan says. “Lewis was successful but I hadn’t grasped how special he was – you never know until you work with somebody,” he says. “I asked him after how he knew it was going to work, and he said, ‘I don’t know, it just happens’. Regan says those qualities in karting were evident in his championship-securing race in Turkey, where he came from over a pitstop behind the leaders to win the race by more than 30 seconds in challenging conditions. Regan says the demanding levels set by Lewis and Anthony were matched by the emphasis on loyalty. “If he wasn’t happy with the kart it could get heated, but that’s racing and that’s what got him where he is today. He didn’t always agree with us and he didn’t always agree with Anthony.
