Lewis Hamilton Will Be Awarded A Knighthood In New Year's Honours

Formula One superstar Lewis Hamilton will be awarded a Knighthood in the New Year's honours list after winning his seventh world championship this year.

Lewis, 35, is honoured for his contribution to the sport, having equalled the iconic Michael Schumacher's record with a seventh world title win in Istanbul, Turkey.

Speaking about the possibility of being knighted, he said: "I've not saved any lives.

"I'm not an unsung hero like NHS staff or Captain Sir Tom Moore.

"Like everyone, I've grown up adoring the royal family, if one day I am honoured to be up in front of the queen again, it would be the happiest day ever to see here again, she's an icon, such an incredible individual."

The British racing driver is to be given the prestigious gong after his tax affairs were deemed 'all in order', according to The Sun.

The knighthood for Lewis comes 12 years after he was handed the MBE from the Queen.
