Lewis Hamilton isn't short of fans, but his Bahrain Grand Prix victory on Sunday might have been inspired by one famous face from his homeland who was supporting the Mercedes star this year. British TV legend Carol Vorderman shared a Mothering Sunday story involving the world champion, did it have a say in the outcome…?
Vorderman took to Twitter ahead of the race to recount a tale of incredible kindness from Hamilton shown towards her mother in the past, and explain why she would be supporting the five-time world champion.
Of course, Hamilton did go on to win – and in fortuitous circumstances too as Charles Leclerc's engine failure handed the win to Hamilton, who had battled Sebastian Vettel to be in the position to capitalise.
Was Mama Vorderman responsible, with the race taking place on another Mothering Sunday? You can be the judge!
