Lewis Hamilton to add mother’s surname ‘Larbalestier’ as additional middle name


Lewis Hamilton has revealed that he is in the process of adding his mother’s last name, Larbalestier, as an additional middle name.

t is interpreted as the third middle name, along with Carl and Davidson, instead of becoming the double-barrel surname for the seven-time world champion.

Anthony, Hamilton’s father, and mother Carmen split when Lewis was just two years old.

Hamilton invited his mother to watch him receive his knighthood from Prince Charles at Windsor Castle in December.

Speaking ahead of the new Formula 1 season kicking off in Bahrain on Sunday, Hamilton, 37, said: “I’m really proud of my family name. My mother’s name is Larbalestier and I’m about to put it on my own.

“I don’t really fully understand the idea that when people get married, a woman loses her name and I really want my mother’s name to continue as Hamilton.”

When asked when he predicts the change will take place, Hamilton replied: “Hopefully that will happen soon. We’re doing it.”

Hamilton is gearing up for his 16th season on the grid and is bidding to avenge last year’s championship defeat to Red Bull rival Max Verstappen.

But after last week’s test, Hamilton said he feared Mercedes was behind Red Bull and Ferrari in pecking order and that his car wouldn’t be fast enough to fight for the win.

“Bahrain is going to be tough,” added Hamilton, who spoke at Dubai Expo 2020 on Monday.

“I really hope that when I get the call tonight – with my team at Brackley and Brixworth – they’ve figured out some tricks and ways to get more out of this car.

“There were a lot of fast cars during testing. Alfa Romeo looks nimble, Valtteri (Bottas) looks nimble, and obviously Red Bull looks ridiculously fast – but we’re the best team.” Lewis Hamilton to add mother’s surname ‘Larbalestier’ as additional middle name
