Jamie Green: The other Hamilton conqueror seeking career revival

On his rise through the ranks before reaching Formula 1, Lewis Hamilton was usually a cut above the rest. But he never truly asserted himself over a Mercedes-backed fellow Briton who traded single-seaters for touring cars and is now seeking new opportunities after a year largely spent on the sidelines.

The events of a Formula 3 Euroseries race at Magny-Cours on the 2004 French Grand Prix support bill provided a fascinating snapshot of two rising British stars.

The winner on that Saturday had converted pole to a relatively easy victory, at least once ASM teammate Alex Premat had served his penalty for a jump start. It was the third of the season for the Mercedes-backed British Formula 3 graduate, who would go on to score another four on his way to a dominant title. Meanwhile his McLaren-supported rival’s Manor Motorsport machine hadn’t been hooked up in the wet-dry qualifying and from 20th tangled with German driver Robert Kath.
