This year he secured his seventh, moving him level with Michael Schumacher's record career tally.
His record is also unrivaled among current F1 drivers. Perhaps we shouldn't use the word "maybe", because Hamilton has proven that he is head and shoulders above the rest of the grid.
The knighthood for Lewis comes 12 years after he was handed the MBE from the Queen.
Despite all this, Hamilton remains among the 5,000 highest taxpayers in the UK.
The pair have continued to fight hard and fair and Hamilton added: "Every year you can see him just grafting away, chipping away at trying to raise the bar in so many different areas".
Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas race in every Grand Pix in the same vehicle, but why always Hamilton stands tall, the answer was given by Carlos Sainz a few weeks ago.
Lewis Hamilton has been breaking down barriers since he arrived in Formula One and deserves a knighthood for his achievements on and off the track, former world champion Damon Hill has said.
The seven-time world champion opened up about his loyalty to Mercedes and his intentions on maintaining it in the long term.
Hamilton, though, is not too excited about the prospect of being knighted, sighting the fact that he is not a hero.
According to the publication, Hamilton said: "When I think about that honour of being knighted, I think about people like my grandad who served in the war".
Some raised doubts over whether he should be given the honour of a knighthood, due to his efforts to avoid paying tax in the United Kingdom by residing in Monaco and registering his private jet in the Isle of Man. I think you've got to remember who he's driving up against. I haven't saved anybody'. "It is an incredible honour that a small number of people have bestowed on them".
However the Sport Honours Committee has yet to reach a decision over whether Hamilton should be given the knighthood.
But, with Ferrari set on Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz for the next few years, and Hamilton about to sign what could be his final F1 contract with Mercedes, the chances of a move to Maranello are looking incredibly slim.
"Of course there's a points gap of seven points [between P1 and P2] and that consistently that over a period of time [adds up]".
