Lewis Hamilton could secure his fourth Formula One world title in Mexico this weekend, and he has already got plans for how he will celebrate.

With a 66-point lead on title challenger Sebastian Vettel, the Brit is looking to do enough to hold off the Ferrari rival and win his fourth title.

But, the talking point this weekend is more about what Lewis will do if he wins his fourth title.

Although he's promised to race at full throttle this weekend, he's also said that he plans to climb the Inca trail of Machu Picchu in Peru with a group of mates.

He said: “My bucket list at the moment is winning that fourth world championship — but Machu Picchu has been on my list for the last couple of years.

“It is on ancient ground and it is a great hike. There are six or seven of us who like doing adventures together, so we will continue to do that."

The only person that can stop Hamilton of course is Vettel, but with such a large lead, even a win from Vettel in Mexico would mean Lewis only needs to finish fifth or above and it will still be enough to win him the championship.

In 2008, Hamilton managed to beat Ferrari’s Felipe Massa to the title in the Brazilian GP with a last-ditch overtake on Timo Glock, coming fifth to earn enough points to pinch glory.

Lewis added: “The only difference for me is in 2008 I was a kid. I’d had all the natural talent that I have today — but didn’t have the knowledge or experience.

“I’m now fighting a championship-winning team in Ferrari and a champion driver, though I’m so much better equipped than I was in 2008.

“When you are 18, you think you know everything,  you don’t know s***. Then when you get to 22 you think you know everything, but don’t.

“And when you look back at 30, you realise you didn’t know anything at the time about yourself. It’s just that natural maturity.

"It’s actually been more enjoyable this year being in the position I am."

Hamilton was second fastest during the first practice session in Mexico, behind teammate Valtteri Bottas and ahead of Vettel who finished the session in fifth after an error on Turn 11.

If Hamilton wins his fourth title this weekend, he will pass his idol 'Ayrton Senna's' record of three title wins. Although, he still looks up to the Brazilian and praises him as the 'best' Formula One driver.

He said: “If Ayrton had been given the opportunity to continue and race in safe conditions, he would have continued to win championships. I don’t look upon him and think I am better because I have more wins and championships and poles.

“But I feel very proud for my name to be mentioned alongside his.”
