Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton sends car and trophy to cancer-stricken child who inspired his victory in Spain
A Formula One car has been sent to the home of the cancer-stricken boy who inspired Lewis Hamilton’s Spanish Grand Prix triumph.
Lewis Hamilton has been hailed for bringing the smile back to a boy fighting the final days of his young life.
Hamilton dedicated his Spanish Grand Prix victory to Harry Shaw, a five-year-old from Surrey, who is set to lose his battle against a rare bone cancer.
Hamilton’s Mercedes team arranged for one of their Formula One cars to park outside Harry’s home in Redhill on Monday.
Given the acceleration of his illness, it marked the first time he had been outside in three weeks.
Dad James said it had “provided us with a big boost, and a big smile”, at a “tremendously difficult time in our lives”.
He added that his son “couldn’t believe that Lewis Hamilton was talking about him, and had dedicated the race to him”.
