Lewis Hamilton gets his 2019 'new whip'

It seems that with each additional world title, the perks just get better for Lewis Hamilton.

As a token of his employer's appreciation, the Mercedes driver took delivery of a brand new AMG GT R to cruise the streets of L.A. where Hamilton is fine-tuning his preparation for the 2019 season.

On Wednesday, he'll go from celebrity roadhog back to speed demon when he shakes down at Silverstone a Merc of the Silver Arrow type, denominated W10. With a 'W' like in whip!
