F1 champ Hamilton collects trophy at FIA awards gala

Six times world champion Lewis Hamilton laid hands on the Formula One winners’ trophy as his late team boss Niki Lauda was voted personality of the year at the governing FIA’s prizegiving gala.Austrian Lauda, a triple world champion and one of the all-time greats as well as the Mercedes team’s non-executive chairman, died in May aged 70 after a lung transplant the previous August.

The award was the result of a vote by permanently accredited media from the International Automobile Federation’s various championships.There was also recognition of late race director Charlie Whiting, who died before the season-opening race in Australia, and French F2 driver Anthoine Hubert who died at the Belgian Grand Prix weekend in July. Hamilton can equal Michael Schumacher’s record seven championships next year, and looks set to surpass the great German’s milestone 91 wins.
