He loves fast cars.  The British driver has a 1967 Ford Mustang, a 1966 427 Shelby Cobra, a personalised Pagani Zonda and a McLaren P1 in his garage. But one particular ‘beast’ has gone viral on social media, forcing many to doubt the world champion’s allegiance.Canadian actor and comedian Andrew B. Bachelor, better known as King Bach, posted videos of Hamilton’s customised ‘Ferrari LaFerrari’ on his social media handles.

He though has “no problem” with Hamilton having rival’s cars in his garage.(Hamilton voted top Formula One driver)”Lewis doesn’t want to be put in a box with people saying, ‘You need to behave like this and do this to be a racing driver,” Sport24 quoted Wolff, as saying.Hamilton won his fourth Formula One world championship this season with Mercedes, but if rumour mills are anything to go by, his heart might be set on other things. (Will Ferrari walk away from Formula One with other teams?)Wolff hopes that Hamilton dos not pull a ‘Rosberg’ on the Formula One team.
