WITH Britain’s most successful track athlete, Sir Mo Farah, cheering Lewis Hamilton on at the Japanese Grand Prix, it got me thinking: How long before we’re referring to him as Sir Lewis?

He is, after all, already the most successful British driver in Formula One history. Hamilton has won twice as many races as Nigel Mansell CBE and, assuming he wins world title No.4 this year, he will eclipse Sir Jackie Stewart, who achieved three.

Yet all he has to his name is an MBE, the most junior gong. David Coulthard has an MBE and never won a single title. Lewis has 61 wins, a record 71 poles and three championships with an almost guaranteed fourth in the post. The man deserves a knighthood and then some.
