You heard it here first, guys.

Hamilton has been in town ahead of this weekend’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The F1 star was taken on a tour of Dubai before being dropped off at IWC Schaffhausen’s flagship boutique at the Dubai Mall.


His tour guide – Supercar Blondie’s Alex Hirschi.

Not one to pass up an opportunity, Alex decided to have a little fun with Lewis, playing a game of ‘Would you rather’.

We won’t spoil it for you – the full video is here – but as well as choosing fingers as long as his legs over legs as long as his fingers, we also found out that Hamilton is a big believer in Aliens.

In fact, he said he wouldn’t hesitate if Aliens approached him and told him he needed to go with them – as long as he could drive.

Bet you never thought you would read that today.

Hamilton also showed us an Alien-inspired tattoo on his hand.

Being the good sport that he is, Hamilton took it all in his stride, and even shared his personal preferences when it comes to watches.

The IWC brand ambassador, who was wearing an IWC Big Pilot, said that the weight and diameter of a watch face were super important to him.

Considering the Big Pilot has a 46.2 diameter, it’s no wonder he wears it proudly.
