Sir Lewis Hamilton? MPs call for F1 world champion to be knighted

Sir Lewis Hamilton? MPs call for F1 world champion to be knighted

Does Sir Lewis Hamilton have a nice ring to it? It turns out that a group of MPs think so! They have reportedly sent a letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, asking him to recommend the newly-crowned seven-time Formula 1 world champion for a knighthood.

The MPs are calling for “national recognition” to be given to Hamilton following his massive success this season and throughout his career. Last Sunday, after winning the Turkish Grand Prix, he equalled German driver Michael Schumacher’s record of seven F1 world championship titles. With 94 wins under his belt so far, Hamilton has also broken and surpassed Schumacher’s long-standing record of 91 Grand Prix victories. The MPs called Hamilton’s success “an outstanding achievement.”
