Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton he is enlarging his figure more and more. The British pilot is breaking all the records of the Formula 1 and adding more and more merits to place himself in the Olympus of the best pilots in history. Many athletes praised Hamilton in recent days, but someone stood out above the rest: Andy Murray. The tennis player asked that Hamilton’s work be recognized in recent years.

Andy Murray received the highest award for a person in the United Kingdom in 2019, it is the ‘Order of the British Empire‘which catalogs it with the title of’gentleman‘or’Sir‘. This was in recognition of his extensive career in the sports world and his achievements. The Scotsman managed to win Wimbledon in 2013, after 77 years without British victories.

“He deserves it”

That is why Murray demanded that British royalty and the government honor the trajectory and achievements of Lewis Hamilton. “As for what he has achieved as an athlete, of course he deserves it. He is one of the most successful athletes in the history of the country, “Murray told Good Morning Britain.

In addition, he stressed that not only should Hamilton’s sports results be recognized, but also the constant social and egalitarian struggles that he defends. “He also supports some great causes off the racetrack. So yeah, I would say that he definitely deserves it in terms of his success, “Murray told the television show.

Also, the 1996 Formula 1 world champion, Damon Hill highlighted the possibility of Hamilton winning the award. “The knighthood will be seen not only as a recognition of your driving, but also as a black driver who has opened another door for anyone who is not white. It has destroyed the preconceived idea that it cannot be done. That there is an area where something cannot be achieved due to the color of the skin. It has totally destroyed that notion.
