Hamilton celebrated topless after winning the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix yesterday. 

Hamilton revealed his tattoo which says 'Still I Rise' to show how he is "inspired" by Billy Monger's story. 

Monger lost both of his legs in a Formula Four accident. He still races though and Hamilton has created a strong relationship with the 19 year old racer. 

Billy Monger is now racing in F3 and came 6th in his first season. 

When speaking to Mobil 1 Monger said "He's made a big impact on me. He just encouraged me to keep going with my dreams and not let stuff like this get me down." 

However, the respect isn't just one way. Hamilton has used Billy's story to fuel his of ambitions and goals. 

"I've always wanted to do it. I always wanted to show 'Still I Rise'" 

"I think it was a perfect moment because that's really how it's been this year." (
