HAMILTON WINS FIA PERSONALITY OF THE YEAR AND CROWNED WORLD CHAMPION

Lewis Hamilton has had a remarkable year on and off the track as he celebrates his seventh world championship in Formula One.

LEWIS HAMILTON is among the favourites to win the Sports Personality of the Year award this weekend, but he once revealed that he tries to avoid attending the event.

The Mercedes driver has won four consecutive Drivers’ championships and surpassed Michael Schumacher for most race wins in the history of the sport. Hamilton has also been a vocal supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, winning plaudits for his calls for racial equality. Going into this weekend’s Sports Personality of the Year awards, Hamilton is among the favourites to win.

Lewis Hamilton has officially been crowned Formula 1 World Champion for a seventh time after receiving his trophy at the FIA’s Prize Giving Ceremony on Friday evening.

The usual formal event – at which championship trophies are officially presented – took place in Geneva, following the FIA’s General Assembly, but with guests attending virtually owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Hamilton claimed 11 victories during the pandemic-delayed 2020 season to equal Michael Schumacher’s record of seven Formula 1 titles.

Hamilton picked up the trophy at Mercedes’ Brackley base while second-placed Valtteri Bottas and third-placed Max Verstappen accepted their respective awards at the Automobile Club de Monaco.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff once more picked up the Constructors’ Championship.

Hamilton also received the Personality of the Year Award, which is voted on by permanently-accredited journalists across multiple championships, the third time that he has claimed the honour.

Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen claimed the Action of the Year Award for his exploits on the opening lap of the Portuguese Grand Prix.

Raikkonen rose through the order to emerge in seventh spot on a wild opening lap in Portimao.
