The newly-crowned 2015 world champion Lewis Hamilton tried his hand at a new sport by entering the ring in Mexico.
Puma got the Formula One star in the ring at Arena Mexico, and the three-time world champion did not disappoint.
Hamilton(30) was taking part in a Lucha Libre match ahead of this weekend's Mexican Grand Prix.
Hamilton 'fought' Mistico, real Luis Ignacio Urive Alvirde(32), who formerly featured in the WWE as 'Sin Cara'. Hamilton landed two midriff kicks in the arena before landing a 'cross-body splash'.
Hamilton didn't succeed in getting Mistico to submit - securing only a two-count, but his excited partner Mephisto picked him up and paraded him around the ring on his shoulders in celebration regardless.
Hamilton secured a second consecutive world championship title last weekend in the United States Grand Prix, becoming the first Brit to do so.
"Every day I am waking up and I'm like, 'I can't believe it", he said of his success.
"When people tell me three, I have them repeat it!"
