Lewis Hamilton has been living the life of a king.
Finishing ninth place in the Mexican Grand Prix was enough to win him the Drivers' Championship for the fourth time.
On top of his ordinary celebrations, Hamilton revealed to The Sun that he was overcome by messages.
"After the race I had 300 messages. I did not know I even knew that many people. I had emails, texts, WhatsApp messages - and it was probably the most I have ever had.
"I always reply to everyone. I was panicking because there was too many. Every time you reply, they reply back to you, so I had to come up with a new tactic: 'I reply, but please don't reply.'
"I prefer not to say who sent me messages, but some really cool people who I have not heard from or met.”
Reaching speeds of over 200 miles per hour doesn’t faze Hamilton, but apparently barrages of social media messages make him panic, suggesting a new tactic for Sebastian Vettel before the race.
News of Hamilton’s mega fortune has also been revealed with the Paradise Papers, alongside potential tax evasion relating to his private jet.
Such news didn’t deter any congratulations.
"I had messages from so many people that I truly admire, super, superstars - musicians, actors, and it was kind of mind-blowing when you see it."
To unwind, Hamilton spent his time with family and friends, but has already been embroiled in more controversy during the practice laps at the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Almost side swiped by Nico Hulkenberg, he nevertheless posted the fastest time and a new course record.
Allegations of tax evasion have done little to deter Hamilton and he seems in buoyant mood for the last two races.
For now, Hamilton is king. At least until next season.
