Lewis Hamilton. There, that's that out of the way. A name - especially that name - can cast a big shadow. But this is the story of an illuminating individual. This is the story of Nicolas Hamilton.
The 23-year-old would have earned this story on AUTOSPORT regardless of his filial ties to a two-time Formula 1 world champion. If you don't know, Hamilton has cerebral palsy. His condition, which affects muscle control and movement, meant he was in a wheelchair until a few years ago and even now moving around is difficult.
What makes him different to any of the 150,000-plus people in Britain suffering from cerebral palsy, and why are we interested in him? Because he became a British Touring Car Championship driver at Croft last month. I'm not going to insult your intelligence and suggest Lewis's success hasn't aided Hamilton Jr's profile. He doesn't shy away from it either.
