Formula 1 champion, Lewis Hamilton was obviously in an ecstatic mood following his fourth Formula One world title victory, jetting off to Miami immediately after his historic triumph at the Mexican Grand Prix.
Hamilton surpassed Sir Jackie Stewart to become the first Briton to win more than three championships, and joined Michael Schumacher, Juan Manuel Fangio, Alain Prost and Sebastian Vettel as just the fifth to have won four or more after a chaotic race in Mexico on Sunday.
And intent on making it a night to remember, the Mercedes superstar boarded a private jet to America — and was joined by his friends and family.
In videos posted on his Instagram story, Hamilton enjoyed his latest F1 world title triumph with his closest friends and family.
He was joined by his mother Carmen, who was present at the Mexican Grand Prix to watch him make history.
Hamilton was in relaxed mood as he celebrated his victory en route to America with his godson Hiero on the plane.
It is believed Hiero is the son of Hamilton’s close friend Yuko Fredriksson, a make-up artist who was also part of the travelling party.
And, after arriving in the US, the 32-year-old driver danced the night away at glamorous nightclub Liv Miami.
Prior to departing Mexico City, Hamilton took to his Instagram to thank his fans and Mercedes team for allowing him to achieve his dreams.
He wrote: ‘As a kid, I always dreamt of being in Formula 1. I never lost sight of that dream, even when people said it would be impossible. I stand here now with 4 World Championships and am proof that if you follow your dreams with everything you have, they can come true.
‘I am so grateful to all 1,500 people in my Team who all have a dream of making the best F1 car and tirelessly make that dream a reality. My fans, #TeamLH, I would not be here without you.
‘You’ve carried me through adversity and shared my joy in moments such as these. Truly, thank you. We are all rising together and I am so excited for what our future brings together.’
And Hamilton has already set his sights on winning a fifth world championship after being crowned Britain’s most successful motor racing driver ever.
The 32-year-old Englishman finished only ninth in Mexico — the lowest position of his championship-winning season — following a stunning opening-lap collision with Vettel, after which Hamilton asked if his rival had crashed into him on purpose.
Hamilton dropped to last but Vettel — who also had to stop for repairs — crossed the line in fourth to fall well short of the victory he needed to stop Hamilton from rewriting the record books.
