F1: Lewis Hamilton knighted by Prince Charles


Now call Sir Lewis Hamilton. Three days after losing the world title in the last kilometers of the Abu Dhabi GP, the Mercedes driver experienced an unforgettable moment on Wednesday. Indeed, the Briton, accompanied by his mother, was named a knight by Charles, the Prince of Wales, at Windsor Castle. Lewis Hamilton was thus knighted by the royal family for his contribution to British motorsport.
Since his Formula 1 debut in 2007, the native of Stevenage, north London, has won seven world championship titles (2008, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020), as many as Michael Schumacher and 103 Grands Price (12 more than the German). Lewis Hamilton is the fourth driver to win this honorary title after Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham. However, the Briton is the only active pilot to have been decorated.

After the outcome of the 2021 season in Abu Dhabi, Lewis Hamilton has made an appointment in 2022. « We gave it all, we never gave up and that’s the most important thing, he said last Sunday. I have felt good for the past two months. I do not forget that we are in a period of a pandemic, I wish everyone to stay healthy and have a happy holiday season. We will see for next year. «
