With his recent 7th Grand Prix win, Lewis Hamilton has now become the joint-most successful F1 driver of all time, drawing with Michael Schumacher.

His hard work and determination have already given him a career of 94 wins and 97 podium finishes. Hamilton’s success is clearly shown through the astonishing statistic that he has won more than 1 in 3 Grand Prix races he’s ever entered.

There are now strong calls for Hamilton to receive a knighthood for his sportsmanship. Hamilton did receive an MBE in 2008 after his debut championship race, however, he has so far been denied the higher honours among claims that Buckingham Palace is rethinking how titles are being given out.

With his great sporting achievements and amazing track record, fans hope for his name to be called in the New Years Honours list.

Lewis Hamilton has always and continues to stand as an amazing role model for children not only in the UK but around the world. In his comments as he crossed the finish line on Sunday, Hamilton said:

“Thank you so much, guys. That’s for all the kids out there who dream the impossible. You can do it too man! I believe in you guys! Thank you so much, everyone, for your support.”
