Cant wait to see how he will drive in his shining armour, they will need to adjust the cockpit, and how will the lance affect aerodynamics?

Hamilton is the third F1 world champion to receive a knighthood, following Jack Brabham (in 1978) and Jackie Stewart (2001), while the honour also went to Stirling Moss (2000). Aside from drivers Williams F1 team founders Frank Williams and Patrick Head have also received knighthoods, in 1999 and 2015 respectively.
A photo of the four surviving F1 "sirs" together at a GP would be remarkable.

In addition, pre-war racers and land speed record breakers Henry Segrave (1929) and Malcolm Campbell (1931) were both knighted.

I heard that they werent sure Sir was a suitable award, and thought they might give him the combination of Earl and OBE instead.
But they decided Lewis Hamilton Earlobe didnt sound quite right

Very disappointed by this.

I am sick of him bringing politics into the sport.

Why can't he highlight the political issues I want?

You shouldn't be knighted if you don't live here.

Why can't he be more like Jackie Stewart?

Have you seen the tax dodging?

When will Mansell get a knighthood?

It's not a real sport anyways. Anyone can turn a wheel and press pedals. And it is all done by computers nowadays!

You could also add Sir Chris Hoy to the list, he's done some car racing!

Anyway good for Lewis, not usual to get knighted while still competing, although there have been a few sportsman in recent times to have it done(the above mentioned Sir Chris, Sir Bradley Wiggins and Sir Andy Murray)
