First, the Mercedes driver gets the question of whether his Knighthood and many in his environment call him ‘Sir’. “No, only my father. I never let anyone call me ‘Sir’. Only my son-in-law and daughter-in-law call me ‘Sir Uncle'”, Hamilton laughs. “It’s a great privilege in the UK, but I do not notice it often.”

That would be great, “said David Cook, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Washington bureau.
