The Royal Mail are considering paying tribute to Lewis Hamilton by featuring the Formula One World Champion on a set of commemorative stamps.
Reports indicate the stamps are to be released in the New Year and will serve as an accolade for the youngest-ever F1 champion.
The move is slightly unusual as the Royal Mail has already released its 2009 stamp schedule and holds a policy of not featuring living non-royalty on stamps unless they are part of a larger group.
England's Ashes-winning cricketers were featured on the stamps and since then only a couple of living actors were featured including, Dora Bryan and Christopher Lee.
A Royal Mail spokesperson revealed that even though no decision has yet been made on the Hamilton stamps, it is a possibility.
"It is certainly an idea which is under consideration," the spokesperson said.
