Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes team arranged for one of their F1 cars to park at the home of Harry Shaw, a 5-year-old from Surrey, who is set to lose his battle against a rare bone disease.

 

A Formula One car has been sent to the home of the cancer-stricken boy who inspired Lewis Hamilton's Spanish Grand Prix triumph. Lewis Hamilton dedicated his win in Barcelona to Harry Shaw, a five-year-old from Surrey, who is set to lose his battle against a rare bone disease. Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes team then arranged for one of their Formula One cars to park outside Harry's home in Redhill on Monday. The youngster, cradled in his father James' arms, was then shown around Lewis Hamilton's car by a Mercedes employee.
 
Given the acceleration of his illness, it marked the first time he had been outdoors in three weeks.
 
Harry was presented with Hamilton's winning trophy from the race in Barcelona, and a pair of the world champion's racing gloves. Lewis Hamilton also recorded a video message of support for him to watch.
 
"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.
 
"At a tremendously difficult time in our lives, this has provided us with a big boost, and a big smile.
 
"Harry couldn't believe that Lewis Hamilton was talking about him, and had dedicated the race to him. He now thinks that Lewis is his absolute best friend, which, for a five-year-old boy, is amazing.
 
"Harry loves cars, and although he is frail, he was asking about the exhaust pipe.
 
"Mercedes have taken us to a much-better place in a dark time."

Thought of the day

एक दीप तुम प्यार का, रखना दिल के द्वार, यही दीप का अर्थ है, यही पर्व का सार. दीप हृदय में कर गये, खुशियों का बौछार, आज प्रेम से हम करें, दीपों का सत्कार. केसर, चन्दन घर लगे, रोली अक्षत द्वार, सजी दीप की अल्पना, किरणें वन्दनवार. फूल -पंखुड़ी तन हुआ, हृदय हुआ अब दूब, दीप -पर्व के ताल में, हम सब जायें ड़ूब. दीप -पर्व सी ज़िन्दगी, दीप तुम्हारा प्यार, तुम रंगोली अल्पना, तुम ही वन्दनवार. दिया एक विश्वास का, जले हृदय में आज, सद्भाव को नोच रहे, आजा घृणा के बाज़. उड़ी गगन में प्रेम की, किरणें पंख पसार, हुआ पराजित दीप से, फिर तिमिर एक बार.
