Lewis Hamilton does not need drugs and alcohol to get high
Montreal: Lewis Hamilton insists his self-professed rock and roll lifestyle away from Formula One will not lead to him falling off the rails.

The two-time world champion remains on course to add a third crown after easing to victory in Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix as he led home Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg for yet another dominant one-two.
Hamilton, 30, has just signed a new deal with the team and has been in the public eye in-between races in recent months.
Recently, he posted a video on Instagram jumping 30ft from a luxury yacht and there were reports of him being accompanied by his new girlfriend Kendall Jenner. Also, Hamilton is known to be close to Jenner's mother Kris and it was she who wanted her 19-year-old daughter to date him.
Jetting around the world, attending showbiz parties, spending time on yachts with reality TV personalities, driving in the Gumball Rally and shooting a cameo role in the new Zoolander film are just a few of his recent extra-curricular activities.

But he says that is as far as he will go for kicks after claiming last week he enjoys a 'rock and roll lifestyle' — insisting getting lost in a world of drink and drugs simply does not appeal.
"It's easy, very, very, easy," he said when asked about resisting such temptations in his current position.
"I've never even been close to being lost in that sense. It's just the way I was raised. I'm not going to get lost, I can do anything I really want to do.
Hamilton's wild side
"Jumping off the boat, jumping off rocks, jet skiing, all those things I like to do, I still do them. That's me going wild. There's no other way I want to go. What else is there to do? I am already living life to the full. I never ever want to do either (drink or drugs), I can't really understand why people do it. So no. I've never had it (in) my family."
Hamilton's win in Montreal was his fourth victory of the season. "I do my talking on the track," he said of his second title tussle with Rosberg.
