Lewis Hamiton


 Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton has been voted BBC Sports Personality of the Year 2020.


One of F1's all-time great drivers, he equalled Michael Schumacher's record of seven world titles with his fourth consecutive championship in 2020.


The 35-year-old, from Stevenage, also surpassed Schumacher's total of 91 grand prix wins.


In a public vote, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson finished second while jockey Hollie Doyle was third.


It is the second time Hamilton has been crowned Sports Personality of the Year, having first won the award in 2014.


He is also a four-time runner-up, most recently in 2018 and 2019.


Hamilton, who holds the record for most pole positions, won 11 of the 17 Grands prix during the 2020 season, which started four months late due to the coronavirus pandemic. He achieved three further podium finishes.
