“He deserves it more than some of those”- David Coulthard on Hamilton knighthood
When asked by BBC, whether Hamilton deserves to get knighted, Coulthard immediately, without flicking said Hamilton absolutely deserves it, considering the level of his achievement.
“100%, I don’t understand why, he has won so many world championships in his career, he’s a global ambassador for Britain,” said Coulthard.
“We got Lewis there, proudly holding the union jack above his head everywhere and every time he had the opportunity to do so. So I have a question back to you does anyone know the reason, has he done something that would not make him acceptable to knight him under the current regulations.”
