Disclaimer: Im not a Hamilton hater... but I'm not a fanboy either.

I do have issue with the Knighthood, coming after 7 world titles.... namely it comes when he equals someone (Schumacher) surely if he is to be honoured for motor sporting achievement it should be either at he end of his career or on surpassing the record number of world championships ?

What honour do they bestow when (rather than if given he's still driving the Mercedes next season) he get the 8th title ?

Your point stands obviously.

Jackie didnít need to! Although as you said he wasnít competing.

Doesnít matter though. A lot get it when still competing, nothing in the rules saying you canít.

They donít need to give him anything else! Itís not that the rules say you get a knighthood for 7 and then...

Different times, but the main reason, say, Jim Clark OBE and Graham Hill OBE arenít knights is that the sadly werenít with us long enough. Maybe they would have been.

Others (F1 and not F1) have been honoured for far less. You could argue Lewis should have gotten it far sooner, judging by others achievements.

Like it or lump it...at least someone from Motorsport is being honoured instead of being vilified or shunned...

It's something that the UK have a problem with - we often don't like to be proud of successful people.

speak for yourself, I'm extremely proud of Lewis and his achievements. And anyone else who is overtly British and brings success to my country. Very saddened by the vast quantity of vile, vicious, spiteful and hateful facebook comments about LH when this was announced yesterday.

Based on my anecdotal understanding of British cricket football culture,, I thought you guys were more parochial about your towns and counties than the country as a whole?

That's a very insightful comment. We are very tribal.
