Lewis Hamilton celebrates his 32nd birthday today, enjoying his winter break before work begins again soon.

The triple world champion will have a new challenge facing him next season when he takes on the revised 2017 cars and a brand new team-mate.

Hamilton made his debut in Formula One in 2007 for McLaren were he was instantly engaged in a championship fight. Ten years on, Hamilton remains the only man in Formula One history to win a Grand Prix in every season he's competed in.

The Brit has also never finished outside the top five in the drivers championship standings. 

After spending seven years at McLaren and winning the championship in 2008, he joined Mercedes in 2013 and has taken two world championships since.

He surpassed Alain Prost in the all time winners standings for second place with 53 victories in 2016, but has a long way to go before catching Michael Schumacher on 91.

Happy Birthday Lewis Hamilton.
