Lewis Hamilton sends Formula 1 car to terminally ill English boy

  Mercedes have surprised a terminally ill boy, who Lewis Hamilton says inspired him to win the Spanish Grand Prix, by delivering a Formula 1 car to his house.

  Hamilton dedicated his most recent win to five-year-old Harry Shaw, who is set to lose his battle with a rare form of bone cancer, and followed up by sending his trophy and a replica of his Formula 1 car to Shaw's family home in Surrey.

  "I cannot describe how much it means to us all that Lewis won the race for Harry, and then dedicated it to Harry, too," his father James Shaw said.

  "Harry couldn't believe that Lewis Hamilton was talking about him, and had dedicated the race to him.

  Hamilton's third win of the campaign let him take the championship lead by seven points over Valterri Bottas, who had entered the Spanish Grand Prix with a one-point advantage.
