Lewis Hamilton knighted in UK’s New Year Honours List

This year, Hamilton won his seventh F1 driver’s championship title, equaling the great Michael Schumacher’s record.

Off the track, the 35-year-old became a powerful voice on the issue of racism and was one of British sport’s leading voices supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Briton is the fourth F1 driver to receive a knighthood after the late Australian Jack Brabham, Stirling Moss and triple champion Jackie Stewart.
