He may already be 'over the moon' given his ongoing success in F1 but Lewis Hamilton's ultimate ambition is to boldly go where no man has gone before, and set foot on planet Mars.

In an interview with fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar, the triple World Champion spoke of his love for music, traveling and the movies. The latter enticing the Mercedes driver to share a far-fetched fantasy.

"I’d love to go to space," said Hamilton.

"I just watched The Martian, I really want to go to Mars. I was thinking I could take a hot chick with me and we could just start a family up there."

Last year, Hamilton actually visited the set of Ridley Scott's acclaimed blockbuster in which Matt Damon finds himself stranded on the red planet.

Hamilton traveling to Mars? It can't happen soon enough for Nico Rosberg.
