Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton has shared a post of his latest tattoo: a huge lion covering half of his chest.

Hamilton posted the photo of the tat on Instagram, alongside a caption that could serve as a warning for his Formula One rivals: "The African Lion Symbolizes mastering your emotions... The African lion roars ferociously and the roar can be heard for miles... It is summoning the power of the sun to be unleashed at his will, he proclaims his power as a message and a warning."

The British driver currently leads the world championship by 17 points ahead of his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg, with the teams heading to Budapest for the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend.
