LEWIS Hamilton will be knighted at Windsor tomorrow – three days after his controversial world title defeat.
Formula one Last year, the racing legend was awarded the title for services to motorsport.
The 36-year-old is the fourth F1 driver to become a Sir after Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham.
The title will bring comfort to Hamilton after a brutal end to a memorable season in Grand Prix Abu Dhabi on Sunday when he was pissed off by Max Verstappen.
Angry fans claim he has been robbed of his record eighth world crown after leading for most of the race.
Hamilton, awarded the MBE in 2009, took the win with an 11-second lead just for Verstappen, 24 years old, for a dramatic final lap win after the Dutchman was allowed to catch up while the race was halted by a collision.
Gracious Lewis – who campaigned for BLM and LGBTQ+ issues in sport – congratulated his opponent and will set aside his pain tomorrow when he is told: “Get up, Mr. Lewis.”
