Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes nominated for Laureus World Sports activities Awards

Seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton was nominated for his fourth Laureus World Sports Award in a row, while his team Mercedes was nominated for the seventh Laureus Team of the Year Award in a row after a seventh World Championship in 2020.

Hamilton, who was recently knighted, won the 2020 Sportsman of the Year award alongside Lionel Messi and will be honored again, this time against greats like LA Lakers NBA legend Lebron James, tennis ace Rafael Nadal and the Football star Bayern Munich Robert Lewandowski.

Mercedes won the “Team of the Year” award in 2018 and has an equally tough competition this year. The 2020 Superbowl winners, Kansas City Chiefs, NBA champions LA Lakers and Champions League winners Bayern Munich, are waiting for the award. The Silver Arrows have received seven nominations since 2015.

Laureus was founded in 2000 by the current Mercedes boss and Daimler chairman Ola Kallenius and the South African businessman Johann Rupert as an organization that uses sport to change the world. It has a charitable arm in Laureus Sport for Good and an annual awards ceremony, the Laureus World Sports Awards. The voting will open shortly on Laureus.com.

The Mercedes W12 2021 is slated to hit the market on March 2 as Hamilton seeks a record-breaking eighth world championship and Mercedes seeks an eighth title in a row against the rising challenge from Red Bull, who launched its RB16B 2021 on Tuesday.
