Seven-time F1 champion Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he will change his name to honour his mother Carmen Larbalestier, as he prepares to challenge for a record eighth world title.

The 37-year-old said he would add his mother’s surname to his, most likely racing as Lewis Hamilton-Larbalestier in a move that would take place soon.

Hamilton said he was working on the name change but it would not take effect for this week’s season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix.

The Briton, who was pipped to his eighth world title in controversial circumstances at last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, was non-committal about his future, saying he was taking it one day at a time.
