Encouraged by Lewis Hamilton winning the 2014 Formula One World Driver's Championship, Mr. Cameron met a large number of apprentices employed by British motor sport companies, as well as some of Britain's greatest motor sport luminairies including my good friends Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart and Derek Bell MBE.

Also noted was Derek Bell's continuing efforts to promote the Bentley marque through his work as a Bentley Ambassador.
Speaking at the reception, David Cameron said: "Backing this nine billion pound a year industry, which supports many thousands of highly-skilled engineering jobs is a crucial part of our long-term economic plan to rebalance the economy.
That is why I am delighted to celebrate the success of British motor sport and its contribution to the economy."
