"I've been to Vietnam before and it is lovely", Hamilton told the BBC.

Mercedes could either opt to install some new elements in Hamilton's W09, which would mean that he would take a grid penalty in the last Grand Prix of the season next week, or the Germans could use an old engine again, with the risk of potential failure attached to it.

Five-time Formula One World Champion Lewis Hamilton issued a clarification on comments that he made about India being a "poor place".

"When we did have the race nobody came because it was too expensive or there was no interest", he added.
"It felt odd to drive past homeless people then arrive in a huge arena where money was not an issue". "However, I have met some wonderful Indian fans", Hamilton concluded.
