There are rumours Lewis Hamilton could sit out this weekend’s Brazilian grand prix.

Correspondents reporting for Globo from Sao Paulo, the scene of the penultimate round of the 2015 season, say the Briton cancelled a scheduled press conference in the south of the city on Wednesday.

The Mercedes team said it was for “personal reasons”, but the event’s Brazilian counterparts were quoted as saying they were “surprised” by the cancellation and unsure it could be rescheduled.

Another local publication, UOL’s Glamurama, reported the “sad news” that Hamilton “will not come to Brazil because he is in poor health”.

Hamilton, 30, wrapped up his second consecutive drivers’ world championship late last month in Austin, Texas.

    No, he wrapped up his second *consecutive* WDC, his third overall.

    By the way, he wrapped his third consecutive drivers’ world championship…

    If he sets the weekend out, and Vettel wins, there is no loss of face for Mercedes. It also hands Rosberg a free win without Lewis there to challenge him-if he can stave off Vettel. Interesting.
