Will Smith congratulates Lewis Hamilton over team radio
Lewis Hamilton enjoys rubbing shoulders with celebrities, and none other than the Fresh Prince of Bel Air himself, Will Smith, jumped onto team radio to congratulate the five-time world champion on his title victory following the Mexico Grand Prix.
He has been congratulated by the likes of Neymar in the past, but after his fourth position gave him the necessary points to clinch his title and second in a row, Smith was among the first to offer up praise of his performance.
Hamilton navigated the race without a Hitch, and his Pursuit of Happyness delivered a title that looked some way off at the start of the season, with Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel performing with such distinction.
The Brit showed supreme Focus to make it over the finish line despite suffering from tyre issues in the blistering heat, but since the Summertime his form has been electric and it's sure he will be Getting Jiggy With It tonight to celebrate.
Who knows, if Liberty Media get their way, he may even be racing in Miami next year. And that's just about enough of the Will Smith puns.
