Lewis Hamilton Knighted by Prince of Wales at Windsor Castle

Lewis Hamilton has been knighted by the Prince of Wales at Windsor Castle just days after he was dramatically denied history at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Brit was seen speaking to Prince Charles at Windsor Castle just moments after receiving his knighthood on Wednesday morning.

Sir Lewis has become just the fourth F1 driver to be knighted after Sir Jackie Stewart in 2001, Sir Stirling Moss in 2000 and Sir Jack Brabham in 1979.

The motorsport icon was denied a record eighth title in Abu Dhabi on Sunday as Max Verstappen claimed his maiden championship in controversial circumstances.
