McLaren Mercedes F1 Team driver Lewis Hamilton has become immensely known by the fans after winning the 2008 World Championship title at Brazil last weekend. Hamilton, who is also having a relationship with another famous person, admitted that he needs more security after his success.
Hamilton was surrounded by four bodyguards during the Stars and Cars event in Stuttgart this weekend. Last weekend at Sao Paulo, the Briton even needed to be driven around in a bullet-proof car. Measures unseen in the world of Formula One.
Hamilton said to the British newspaper 'News of the World': "I rarely go around on my own anymore. The more I go through my life then the best it is to be safe. I may need extra security."
Earlier this year, Hamilton already decided to move to Switzerland to avoid clinging fans in Great-Britain.
