Hamilton soon with a double
“Nobody of you may know my mother’s Larbalestier, and I’m just about to record that in my name,” revealed the seven-time formula 1 world champion on Monday at a sponsor appointment at the EXPO 2020 in Dubai.
The Mercedes pilot understand “the idea not quite that the woman loses her name when she marries. And with my mother I really want her name to be continued together with the name Hamilton.”
Lewis Hamilton is the physical son of Carmen Larbalestier and Anthony Hamilton. The couple divorced a few years after the birth of the son. Hamilton’s mother Marry Raymond Lockhart later.
50 euros for the change
Name changes in England are comparatively easy as they are not subject to special public law restrictions. Hamilton can even take care of the procedure online, he would have to pay 42.44 British pounds (converted slightly more than 50 euros) for a corresponding official deed.
The 37-year-old wants to take care of it soon. “Hopefully soon, I do not know if it will be this weekend, but we’re working on it,” Hamilton said laughing. On Sunday, the first Grand Prix of the Year is in Bahrain.
