Lewis Hamilton cut to favourite for SPOTY after matching Schumacher's record

The Brit is now a seven time world champion...

  • Lewis Hamilton is now statistically the best Formula One driver of all time.
  • He is also the odds-on favourite to pick up his second SPOTY award.


Hamilton has overtaken previous favourite Marcus Rashford

Lewis Hamilton has had his odds cut into odds-on and as short as an 8/11 favourite for the Sports Personality Of The Year award after his Turkish GP victory.

The 35-year-old now sits in pole position ahead of Marcus Rashford as the second favourite at 2/1 and Tyson Fury third at 8/1.

With his seventh world title win he also added a 94th win to his career tally, which also overtook Schumacher’s record of 91 last month.

Hamilton won the world championship in style, landing a thrilling victory in Istanbul coming from sixth on the grid to finish in first place.

The Englishman now stands statistically the most successful Formula One driver of all time as he holds the most wins record and shares the most titles record.

Schumacher and Hamilton were both at the same stage in their career when claiming their seventh title, but is the Brit capable of breaking the record?

Lewis Hamilton has had an incredible year so it comes as no surprise to see the bookmakers shortening the odds on him winning SPOTY.

If Hamilton were to win he would become the fifth person to win the award more than once.

He would also become the second Formula One driver to win SPOTY twice after Damon Hill.

Sports Personality Of The Year odds:

  • Lewis Hamilton – 11/10
  • Marcus Rashford – 2/1 
  • Tyson Fury – 8/1
