Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes have once again been named as nominations in the Laureus Awards.

Hamilton is up for the achievement of Sportsman of the Year, with this year's event being the sixth time that he has been nominated for the award. 

Last year, Hamilton lost out on the prize to tennis player Novack Djokovic, who took his fourth award. 

In 2020, Hamilton faces competition from Eliud Kipchoge (Athletics), Lionel Messi (Football), Marc Marquez (MotoGP) Rafael Nadal (Tennis) and Tiger Woods (Golf). 

Since the award was launched in 2000, an F1 driver has come out on top three times - Michael Schumacher (2002, 2004) and Sebastian Vettel (2014). 

Mercedes has also been listed in the nominees for the World Team of Year, with this year also being its sixth time that it has been nominated. 

In 2018, it took home the award, marking the third time an F1 team achieved such a feat after Renault (2006) and Brawn GP (2010).

Mercedes will be up against Liverpool F.C. (Football), the South Africa rugby team, Spain men's basketball team, Toronto Raptors (Basketball) and the United States women's football team. 

Sophia Floersch has also been named as a nominee for the Comeback of the Year award, following her horrific crash at the 2018 Macau Grand Prix.

The awards ceremony will take place in Berlin on February 17th.
