Hamilton salvages FIA award despite difficult F1 season

Lewis Hamilton has earned the FIA Action of the Year award for his part in a thrilling race at the F1 British Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has secured an accolade at the FIA Prize Giving ceremony in Bologna taking the Action of the Year award. The Briton endured a difficult season, with Mercedes struggling with a below-par car for the 2022 season. However, in one of the rare competitive showings for the W13, Hamilton found himself in contention for the British GP win after a late Safety Car. Racing against Ferrari's Charles Leclerc and Red Bull's Sergio Perez, he passed both cars when the pair duelled at Silverstone. The FIA drew up a shortlist of candidates from the various FIA racing categories, with the award, voted for by the fans, going to Hamilton for his double-overtake.
