Mercedes brought winning trophy and car to sick child Harry Shaw

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes AMG F1 team sent an ill young fan a Mercedes Formula 1 car after their impressive performance at the Spanish Grand Prix. Five-year-old Harry Shaw is a big Hamilton fan and is suffering from a rare form of terminal cancer. 

Mercedes arranged for one of its cars to be flown to Harry's home, along with Hamilton's winning trophy from the Spanish Grand Prix. Hamilton described Harry as his "spirit angel" as he dedicated his victory to him on Sunday.

Harry's father, James Shaw, said to the BBC: "I don't know Lewis, but I think what we've seen is what a genuine, decent, lovely person he is.

"That was a heartfelt message he did and he won that Grand Prix for Harry and that means a lot."
