Hamilton in pole position for Beeb award

Tipsters have put 22-year-old rookie F1 runner-up Lewis Hamilton in the driving seat to scoop the big Beeb sporting gong in December. But who knows what could happen if (sorry, when) Ricky Hatton beats the insufferable Floyd Mayweather just 24 hours before voting closes?

Surely The Hitman will get the nod over Hamilton, an undoubted talent but someone who is yet to reach the pinnacle of his sport. And, at 4/1, Ricky’s worth a flutter right now.

Of course, Joe Calzaghe is another contender but it seems we just don’t love the Welsh Wizard enough – bookies have him at 9/1 to win. Of course, after last year’s winner Zara Phillips, it could be just about anyone…
