Lewis Hamilton: Andy Murray Says F1 Champion Deserves Knighthood

Three-time Grand Slam tennis winner Andy Murray believes Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton deserves to join him as a British sporting knight.

Reports have suggested that Hamilton, who won a record-equalling seventh title last week, will be awarded a knighthood in the New Year Honours.  Hamilton, 35, who was made an MBE in 2009, recently told the BBC’s Sally Nugent that it would be his “happiest day ever” if he got the chance to be honoured by the Queen again. Last week, 1996 British F1 champion Damon Hill said that Hamilton had broken down barriers with his achievements.
