Since Lewis Hamilton’s debut in Formula One in 2007, he has been managed by his father Anthony, who has funded and managed his racing career from young. They have parted ways in 2010 and Lewis has been hunting for a new manager ever since.
Now, he has appointed Simon Fuller’s famous XIX Management to be his manager for his F1 racing career. Simon Fuller has been a very famous manager in the entertainment industry and his has managed the Spice Girls, S Club 7, Annie Lennox, Carrie Underwood, Will Young, Adam Lambert and so on. He is also the creator of the famous Pop Idol and American Idol reality shows.
Apart from that, XIX Management manages sport stars like Andy Murray and David Beckham. No hard feelings from Lewis’s father too, Anthony as quoted, “This is great news for Lewis and for Simon. Lewis has wisely taken his time to find a good person to look after him”.
We are wondering, should Lewis got bored with F1 or can’t win any races, maybe he can ask Simon to get him into the showbiz career, alongside his hot girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger.
On other news, Sebastian Vettel has just signed a new 2-year contract extension with Red Bull Racing and the 2011 Formula One season is starting next weekend in St Albert’s Park, Australia. For sure we can’t wait for the new season to start!
