According to the Mirror, as a young karter, the winner of last Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix even used to carry a conker as a lucky mascot from brother Nic and it was only when his pre-race ceremony went wrong and he crashed out as a teenage Formula 3 racer that he ditched superstitious rituals.

Hamilton said that he used to keep the conker in his race suit and used to put one sock on one way and a helmet visor tear-off on, until something happened to the tear-off in F3 and he crashed.

The racer said that from that day onwards, he stopped being superstitious and now nothing got in his way.
