It was indeed a proud moment for the entire motorsports community, as Hamilton is only the fourth driver to be earning ‘Sir’ before his name. Prior to the 7-time world champion, Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham received a knighthood for their respective achievement in Formula 1.

Now, there are a couple of future British stars in the making in George Russell and Lando Norris. The former, in specific, is in a formidable position to win his first championship title next season. Hence, can Russell manage to follow Hamilton’s path too and earn his knighthood in the coming years?
