According to the aforementioned medium, Hamilton’s appointment was a direct request from Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, to the Crown; which is why the nation’s authorities found a kind of ‘legal gap’ to justify turning the pilot into a ‘Caballero’.

Hamilton, seven-time champion of the Formula 1, has all the sporting merits to receive an appointment; furthermore, after the death of George Floyd He was one of the few pilots of the ‘Great Circus’ to protest against racism and police brutality; However, there is a condition that prevented granting the title of ‘Sir’.

Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart and Jack Brabham are other British pilots made ‘Knights’ by the Crown. Further. Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir David Beckham are other sports figures in the UK who have received such a distinguished appointment.


Leclerc believes that his 2020 has been much better than his 2019


If we look at Charles Leclerc’s numbers in 2019 and compare them to 2020, the reality is that there is no color, although the Monegasque driver does not think the same, since the numbers in Formula 1 often do not go hand in hand with the sensations and the performances of each pilot.

Last year, Charles Leclerc achieved two victories, 10 podiums and finished fourth with 264 points, while in 2020 the Monegasque could only get two podiums and did not even score 100 points, finishing eighth in the World Cup. Despite that, he himself considers that his last season has been much better than that of 2019.

These were the words of Charles Leclerc about it in an interview with The newspaper: This year has been much, much better than last year, because this year I have lost far fewer opportunities than I lost last season”.

While it is true that the 2020 results have been much worse, the Monegasque pilot knows the reason why this has happened: It was a very difficult year because the car did not perform as expected, but I was much more consistent and more often I was able to give 100% of myself “.

The aggressiveness that cost me the podium in Turkey and led me to the accident in Sakhir’s race is also what allowed me during the season to obtain results and score many points when we really weren’t expecting it “Charles Leclerc added.

Finally, the Monegasque Ferrari admitted that the way he handles tires has improved a lot in 2020: “This was precisely the big step that I took. I also learned patience. At the beginning of the year I wanted everything right away because I was trying at all costs to imitate the performances of the previous year “.
