Formula One star Lewis signs fix-figure autiobiography deal


Lewis Hamilton has signed a six-figure deal to produce his autobiography. The 22-year-old British race ace, whose debut year on the Formula One circuit has become the stuff of fairytales, is set to recount the story of his meteoric rise in Lewis Hamilton: My Story.

The work, which is due to hit shelves in November, will reveal how a youngster's racing dreams, fuelled by driving go-karts from the age of eight, culminated in a stellar start to a Formula One career. According to publishers HarperCollins the book will provide an “inspirational insight” into the racing phenomenon, and be packed with previously unpublished personal photographs.

"Two thousand and seven has been a truly amazing year for me, says Lewis. "I look forward to reliving all the great moments and producing a fantastic book to end the season."
