NEWS STORY
13/12/2008

The FIA brought the 2008 season to an end with its annual gala in Monaco last night. Among those receiving their trophies were Lewis Hamilton, the 2008 Formula One World Champion, and Ferrari, which won the 2008 Constructors' Championship.

Receiving his award, Lewis Hamilton said: "This year has been a very special one in my life - the fulfilment of a dream I've had since childhood and an ambition that has taken my family and me on an amazing journey.

"The fact that I won the Drivers' World Championship on the very last lap of the very last race is something that makes me so proud of our efforts in 2008; we pushed to the limit on every single lap, from Melbourne to Brazil - and it's that determination and spirit that ultimately won us the world title.

"It's always very rewarding to receive recognition for all the work you put into the season, and the FIA Prize Giving Gala in Monte-Carlo is of course the fitting venue at which to celebrate all our efforts before we push ahead into 2009."
