STORY: Lewis Hamilton still has to pinch himself to believe he is a three times Formula One world champion and a surreal afternoon in Mexico will give him further cause to question reality.
The Briton, who wrapped up his third title in Austin on Sunday, was guest of honour in a wrestling bout with a masked fighter
He had arrived at the Arena Mexico, the venerable home of Lucha Libre wrestling and boxing venue for the 1968 Olympics, to be serenaded on stage to the strains of ‘Cielito Lindo’ and stepped into the ring and threw himself sideways through the air at ‘Mistico’, who collapsed theatrically to the canvas and conceded defeat.
With his third world championship secured in Texas last Sunday, along with his 10th victory of the season, the Mercedes driver is still intent on winnin g this weekend’s Mexican race.
