Lewis Hamilton has never concealed how much a fan of Brazil, three-time world champion Ayrton Senna is particularly respected. Love is mutual, Brazil is just about to give Hamilton honorary citizenship.

“I want to spend more time in Brazil. The culture there is amazing, even though I was only in Rio and Sao Paulo, ”Reuters was quoted as saying by Hamilton. “I’d like to spend Christmas, New Year, or something like this one day.”

Hamilton has reportedly already received several invitations from football player Neymar and surfer Gabriel Medina, but he has not yet had a chance to accept them. “I’m still waiting for my passport,” Hamilton joked.

Even if he doesn’t even get a passport, the issue of his honorary citizenship is on the rails, and one member of Congress has already taken the initiative to get the title.
