‘Fantastic ambassador’ Lewis Hamilton deserves knighthood, says Damon Hill

The former Formula One world champion Damon Hill believes a knighthood is an absolutely deserved honour for Lewis Hamilton. Hill has said if it is bestowed it will be recognition not only of Hamilton’s achievements on track but of his character and impact across the sport, where as a black driver he has been breaking down barriers since he began racing. Not only has Hamilton made it to the very top of F1 but as the only black driver in the sport he has had an influence beyond his achievements on the track. “It is a very rare thing in our sport to get a knighthood,” he said.
