The 41-year-old Chelsea legend took to Twitter on Wednesday to congratulate Formula 1 superstar Hamilton on his knighthood.
Hamilton, 36, received his honour from Prince Charles during a ceremony at Windsor Castle, only days after controversially missing out on the F1 World Championship title to Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.
Terry also took the opportunity to throw his support behind Manchester United legend Beckham to be named on The Queen’s New Year’s Honours list in the future.
“Time for this man to get his [knighthood],” he tweeted, posting a picture of Becks in a car.

Beckham, who is the co-owner and president of MLS side Inter Miami, shot to superstardom during his prolific playing career.
The 46-year-old football icon lifted six Premier League titles, a Champions League and two FA Cups during his time at Old Trafford.
Beckham went on to play for Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain at club level before announcing his retirement in 2013.
The former United star also earned 115 caps for England and represented his country as captain, appearing at three World Cups and two European Championships.
Beckham was rocked by a huge scandal in 2017 after leaked emails alleged his furious reaction to missing out on a knighthood.
The ex-England international was alleged to have called the Honours Committee “unappreciative c***s” and is said to have ranted against Katherine Jenkins’ OBE honour.
However, reports at the time claimed that Beckham had sent the messages in the “heat of the moment.”
A source close to Becks told The Daily Mail in 2017: “David is just like any normal person and he was extremely disappointed that he wasn’t deemed worthy of becoming a Sir.
“He is a passionate man. He gets very passionate about his work and particularly about his country, Great Britain. That’s what drives him.
“He spent a lot of time and effort getting the London Olympics to the UK which had such a positive effect on so many people, but for it not to be acknowledged made him very emotional. Who wouldn’t be?”
