An incredible honor for a deserving driver.
Sir Lewis Hamilton has officially received his knighthood from the Prince of Wales during a ceremony at Windsor Castle today, December 15, 2021. Hamilton is now the fourth Formula 1 driver to be knighted, joining Sir Jack Brabham, Sir Stirling Moss, and Sir Jackie Stewart. This ceremony comes at a time when Hamilton surely needed it after a heartbreaking loss to Max Verstappen at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. And while Sir Lewis Hamilton may be waiting on his eighth Formula 1 World Championship, he can at least take to the track knowing he’s the only knighted driver on the circuit.
