Hamilton adds another feather to his cap with Laureus Award
During the evening, seven-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton was presented with the Laureus Athlete Advocate of the Year Award. This award celebrates the work of athletes who have harnessed their power and influence as elite sportsmen and women to bring change to the world around them and who have inspired a new generation to tackle inequality and injustice. Hamilton clinched a record-equalling seventh Drivers’ Championship late last year, driving for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team. Hamilton’s remarkable achievements on the track have been matched by his increasingly powerful stance on racial justice and social and environmental issues.
