Nov.9 (GMM) 2008 world champion-elect Lewis Hamilton has admitted his title success is likely to lead to him organising extra personal security

The McLaren driver, who secured the championship at Interlagos a week ago, was surrounded by four bodyguards at the Stars and Cars end-of-season Mercedes-Benz event in Stuttgart this weekend

In Brazil last weekend, he was driven around Sao Paulo in a bullet-proof car

“I rarely go around on my own any more,” the 23-year-old admitted

“The more I go through my life then the best it is to be safe. I may need extra security,” he is quoted as saying by the News of the World newspaper
