, Who is Lewis Hamilton’s mum Carmen Larbalestier and is the F1 star changing his name to match hers?

LEWIS HAMILTON’S mum has been something of an elusive figure throughout his sensational F1 career.

While dad Anthony was regularly seen by his side, particularly in his younger days, Carmen Larbalestier has typically kept her distance.

Who is Lewis Hamilton’s mum?

Carmen Larbalestier was born in 1955.

In 1985 she gave birth to Lewis Hamilton, but her and his father Anthony separated when he was just two years old.

Lewis was raised by his mum until he was 12 years old, along with half-sisters Nicola and Samantha, when he moved to live with father Anthony, stepmother Linda and half-brother Nicolas.

How is Lewis Hamilton’s relationship with his mum?

Lewis Hamilton has an excellent relationship with his mum, and the racing superstar is currently in the process of changing his surname to his mother’s ahead of the new season.

While Carmen has been out of the limelight, she has made appearances at some of the bigger races.

At the Chinese Grand Prix in 2008, two weeks before he became a world champion for the first time, Larbalestier was seen embracing her son and his stepmother Linda.

And Hamilton’s mum shared another hug with him after he secured his fourth world title in Mexico.

The world champ also went to the trouble of holding a surprise 60th birthday party in London in 2015 and getting Jessie J to sing for it.

Hamilton shared a number of pictures from the party on his Instagram account with one captain saying: “So much planning and hard work, all to surprise the most amazing woman in the world, and it was so worth it!! Love you Mum. Happy birthday.”

Is Lewis Hamilton changing his name to his mother’s surname?

On March 14, 2022 Hamilton announced that he is changing his name to honour his mum.

Speaking at the Dubai Expo, he said: “I’m really proud of my family’s name: Hamilton.

“Actually none of you might know that my mum’s surname is Larbalestier. And I’m just about to put that in my name.

“Because I don’t really fully understand the whole idea of why, when people get married, the woman loses her name.

Asked if he would change it for the first race of the 2022 season, Hamilton said: “It will be soon.

“No, I don’t know if it will be this weekend. But we’re working on it.”
