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.

Hamilton is also eager to "apply even more pressure" to his F1 rivals in the final two races with a split strategy of hunting 2017 wins while also using the Brazil and Abu Dhabi rounds as early preparations for a 2018 world title defence.

The 32-year-old Briton, who confirmed his third championship with the "Silver Arrows" when he finished ninth at the Mexican Grand Prix, has denied allegations of tax avoidance following the release of the so-called Paradise Papers, but remains engulfed in the controversy.

Back in the paddock at the Brazilian Grand Prix after a break with friends and family, Hamilton said he still had to pinch himself when he thought about the title. "There are many different stories around, but I don't have anything to add to the whole scenario that has happened".

Verstappen revelled in the challenge in the wet past year and gained 10 positions in a daring drive to finish third and secure a podium finish at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace where Hamilton gained his first title with a passing move for McLaren at the final corner in 2008.

121 - Vettel's title bid may have fallen short this season, but the German can boast more points from the Brazilian GP than any other driver.

He responded with victory at Silverstone and appears equally determined to take this latest furore in his stride. "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".

Meanwhile, Felipe Massa, says Hamilton is just as good as his countryman Ayrton Senna and seven-time world champion, Michael Schumacher.

"I've come off with a huge amount of positivity from that week", he said. After winning the second, I had the same thought of being thankful.

"Yes the championship is done", he said.

"There are other challenges for me".
