Fresh off the back of his third Formula One world title, Lewis Hamilton is taking some much deserved time off. 

The Stevenage-born racer has now won back-to-back world titles with Mercedes AMG and was on American chat show 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' to talk about his life on and off the track.

And behind the scenes, Hamilton bumped into a face that fans of Sasha Baron Cohen will be familiar with.

Satirical Kazakh character Borat was in attendance as Cohen promoted his new movie 'The Brothers Grimsby'.

The whole exchange was recorded and posted by Hamilton on his personal Instagram account and the Formula One Champion clearly thought it was hilarious. 

Borat asked him: "Are you chocolate face or not?" Before Hamilton responded that he knew his sister - a memorable joke from the hit 2006 film - to which the Kazakh questioned the size of Lewis' manhood.

While on the Jimmy Kimmel show, Hamilton spoke about his 20-year history in motor racing and told of how his dad got him interested in the sport from the age of five.


The 30-year-old wrapped up the 2015 title with three races to go having won 10 Grand Prix's, finishing 59 points ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg.

The German was able to win the final three races of the season, but it was clear to see the intensity had gone from Hamilton's racing.

The British racer will be aiming to become just the fourth driver in Formula One history to complete a hat-trick of titles in the 2016 season.
