The most successful British driver of all time. Does he deserve to be knighted. If so, when?

but I do really hate having knighthood during a career, I think they should wait til its over. as almost like a retirement achievement. because Wiggins Hoy & Murray would all still have it because of their achievements
I think he's American now days anyway. That's where he calls home. Maybe he'll get a call to the White House?
I feel ok voting no coz I hated everything at least a few times in my mid-teens. Just to be clear.
Any how, but to the subject in hand, I think the expectation of K's or D's these days is too high. Years ago, most people would have to wait until they were nearly at deaths door and have several other strings to their bow (mostly charitable or political chummyness) before the invite dropped on the carpet.
The going rate for an F1 world champion (unless you are an RBS / Rolex brand ambassador) is an MBE or OBE and that should suffice until you are old and grey and then they can review the matter.
Sir Bradly Wiggins, Sir Chris Hoy, Sir Mo Farah etc.
I think that you are somewhat belittling the achievements of those sportsmen. And an awful lot? You have named 3 who do not fit in to your definition.
