The British Racing Drivers’ Club has presented Lewis Hamilton with a pair of awards for his accomplishments in 2021.
The British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC) has awarded Lewis Hamilton with two trophies for his efforts in the 2021 Formula One season.
The BRDC, which owns and operates the Silverstone Circuit, gives out yearly awards in a variety of categories, with many of the prizes named after motorsport icons.
The BRDC Gold Medal and BRDC Gold Star were presented to Hamilton, who finished second in the 2021 Formula One standings.
How Hamilton earned his latest awards
The Gold Medal is the highest honour bestowed by the BRDC for achievements and contributions to the club and motor racing. Hamilton got the award in 2021 for his “outstanding feat” of being the first Formula One driver to win more than 100 races.
Meanwhile, the Gold Star honours a club member’s best achievement in world cups during the year (based on points accumulation).
Separately, Lewis was given the Graham Hill Trophy for the “most meritorious performance” by a British driver in single-seater racing, named after the two-time World Champion.
