Hamilton gets his 1st placed trophy from a Tory MP, Bottas gets his 2nd placed prize from legend John Surtees. I know which one I'd prefer.

I can't believe an MP presented Lewis with the champion's trophy on 50th year when John Surtees was there beside him!
Nearly 5 years ago John Surtees lost his son Henry, still remember that race when i saw him giving 1st price to Hamilton.
So why couldn't Sir John Surtees present Lewis Hamilton's 1st place trophy instead of some tosser of an MP instead of doing 2nd place?
How is John Surtees not a Sir??? Only a World Champion on 2 and 4 wheels!
why hasnt John Surtees got a knighthood!!?

🐾🐾TOP AWARD FOR WOFFY🐾🐾 WOLVERHAMPTON ace Tai Woffinden left a host of motorcycling icons trailing as he blitzed to the prestigious Motorcycle News Man of the Year Award for 2013. The 23-year-old was up against a galaxy of two-wheeled stars from the road racing world, but bagged twice the number of votes notched by any of the other 13 shortlisted riders to become the first speedway winner in the poll’s 56-year history following his World title triumph last year. The award puts Woffinden in the company of motorcycling royalty, as the likes of Barry Sheene, Mike Hailwood, John Surtees, Valentino Rossi and Carl Fogarty have all triumphed in the past. The prize is further recognition for the Team Great Britain captain, who stormed to the Speedway World Championship, despite starting the season at odds of 500/1 and breaking his collarbone twice during the year. Woffy, whose achievement was announced at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show at ExCel today, paid tribute to his fans for getting ...
