Louis Hamilton Knight on the UK Corps Row List | Racing News

LONDON: Lewis Hamilton has been named in Britain’s traditional New Year’s chart after equaling Michael Schumacher’s record of Michael Formula One world titles.
The list recognizes outstanding achievements in a variety of fields, including show business, sports and politics, and the contributions of a growing number of everyday citizens.
There are many awards this year for those who want to find a solution to the problems caused by the corona virus while pulling the trigger.
Hamilton, 35, surpassed Schumacher’s career racing record in a stellar season in 2020, which was shortened by a corona virus infection.
A group of British lawmakers last month called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to recommend a nightclub driver.
Hamilton, who lives in Monaco, has faced scrutiny over his tax arrangements in the past, but has insisted he pay a substantial amount of tax in the UK.
The Mercedes driver has become an outspoken supporter of equality, diversity and the environment this year and has issued several strong human rights statements related to democracy and racism.
Former Leeds Rhinos rugby league player Rob Burrow has been appointed a member of the British Empire Commission.
Burrow, 38, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in December last year. His MBE is not only to recognize his sports services but also to raise MND awareness.
Burrow said: “(Year) 2020 has taught everyone to appreciate the gifts we have, and it is my honor and privilege to accept this award on behalf of all the MNT community.
“I hope it will not be ignored and will reassure people that the drive for further research and support to end MND will not stop.”
The list includes former footballers Jimmy Graves and Ron Flowers, who were last honored members of England’s 1966 World Cup winning team. They have been converted to MBEs.
Bob Champion, who won the Grand National in Altanity in 1981 after recovering from cancer, was appointed Commander of the British Empire Commission for his charitable work at the Bob Champion Cancer Foundation.
Rob Baxter, the director of Rugby’s Exiter, who completed the domestic-European doubles last season, has been appointed an officer of the British Empire Commission, while team captain Joe Simmonds has been appointed an MBE.
