Ecclestone hits out at Hamilton’s knighthood

Bernie Ecclestone has questioned whether seven time world champion Lewis Hamilton really deserves his knighthood. “I don’t think many people who are knighted now really deserve it. Ecclestone also hit out at Hamilton’s Mercedes boss Toto Wolff, for the way he behaved after Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won the world championship in Abu Dhabi. “If Mercedes don’t win the championship retrospectively, he should at least get an Oscar for acting.”. He said it was the great Niki Lauda, Wolff’s sidekick at Mercedes, who came up with the slogan for F1’s new attitude to making decisions during races. “‘Let them race’, that’s what Niki said,” said Marko. The 78-year-old Austrian said of Mercedes’ appeal: “Given our understanding of sport, we would never do that.”.
