Lewis Hamilton's world championship will be immortalised with a set of British postage stamps.

Nov.19 - Lewis Hamilton's world championship will be immortalised with a set of British postage stamps.

The Times newspaper reports that the UK's national postal service is planning to honour the 23-year-old's achievement with the stamps in the new year.

A Royal Mail spokesman would not confirm the news, but he admitted: "It is certainly an idea which is under consideration."

Earlier this year, Finland's postal service similarly honoured its 2007 world champion, Kimi Raikkonen, in the form of a commemorative stamp set.
