LEWIS HAMILTON has revealed he clinched his fifth world championship just days after the death of his grandfather, Davidson Hamilton on Thursday morning before the Mexican Grand Prix.
Like the true professional that he is, he went out and put in a great performance.
He said. "Naturally when someone passes away it brings the whole family together but he was the godfather of the family."
So how did he keep it all together and compose himself to get out onto the track on Sunday?
