Life is pretty good for Lewis Hamilton right now. He’s just become the Formula One world champion for a third time and now, ahead of Sunday’s race in Mexico City, has been lucha libre wrestling. Really.

Not bad Lewis, but where was the mask?

That was Mexican wrestling legend Mistico that Hamilton threw himself at, who we assume didn’t take defeat as badly as Nico Rosberg in Austin, throwing his mask at a celebrating Hamilton.

Yeah, you’re right – it probably won’t.

But he’ll always have this moment.
