Celebrate Vodafone McLaren Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton's 2008 F1 World Championship with this set of six exciting stamps featuring stunning images of his championship year.
The Lewis Hamilton stamps, produced by the Isle of Man Post Office, are available in a series of collectable sets.
This is the First Day Cover.
The stamps are complemented with a review of Lewis's outstanding achievement by legendary TV Formula 1 commentator Murray Walker OBE.
Lewis Hamilton is tipped to become one of the greatest drivers of all time, having become the youngest-ever World Champion in Formula One. This passion for motor racing started from the tender age of six and Lewis became the Kart Champion at just 10-years-old. But his success from that point onwards is attributed to two men. His father Anthony has motivated, guided and supported his brilliant son every step of the way, from the first time he drove a kart to introducing Lewis to McLaren boss Ron Dennis at the 1995 Autosport Awards. That meeting was to yield successful rewards for Lewis, his father, for Ron Dennis, for McLaren and Formula One itself.
Vodafone McLaren Mercedes CEO Formula 1 Martin Whitmarsh said the stamps 'really capture the emotions of a fantastic season'.
