Sounds pretty impressive, doesn't it? Well for starters, Lewis can add the letters MBE to his name, but unlike his predecessor Jackie Stewart, it does not entitle Hamilton to knighthood. The MBE is the lowest rank in the British order of chivalry, and was awarded to Hamilton together with nearly 1,000 other recipients on the Queen's annual new year's list. Still, not bad when combined with his own set of stamps. Oh yeah, and the F1 trophy.
