  • A spokesman for Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton says his tax affairs are completely above board

Less than two weeks after winning his fourth Formula One world title, Lewis Hamilton says he will not commit to the sport for much longer, as other challenges beckon. "I don't know why, but it feels so fresh and so new", added the Briton, who won his first title in Brazil in 2008 with McLaren.

Mercedes Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton of Britain attends a news conference ahead of Brazilian F1 Grand Prix, in Sao Paulo, Brazil November 8, 2017.

"Starting next year with the people I know it's going to be quite different and I just need to go for it and learn from all the hard times this year".

"I have to keep the pressure as it has been throughout the year", he said.

And, despite arriving in Brazil suffering from a runny nose after climbing the Inca trails in Machu Picchu, says he will not be taking it easy with the season coming to a close.

"I am still a racing driver by heart and still have lots of fights in me", he said. Once I was amongst my friends we didn't really think about it too much.

Hamilton, who wears a Senna-inspired yellow helmet, has always been a huge fan of Senna.

"Every now and then we would be at dinner and you would pinch yourself, and say "remember we won the world championship last week"?" For the next couple of days it went to the back of my mind - but it feels good walking into the paddock as a world champion.

Newly-crowned four-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton was presented with a replica of his auto painted by Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra at an event held by sponsor Petronas, F1i reports.

"It feels like the first time".

Lewis Hamilton insists the "storm" surrounding his tax affairs won't derail his push for victory this weekend. "So I come here with this greatest feeling, awesome energy, and want to absorb that positive energy and try to shine my light as bright as I can here in Brazil".

Hamilton said his mobile phone had been swamped with some 300 congratulatory messages since he became the most successful British driver of all time.

"Even though he is a really, really good driver and very consistent, I also need to believe in myself".
