Mathematically Hamilton can seal a fourth F1 world title next time out at the United States Grand Prix if he wins and Sebastian Vettel finishes sixth or lower after the British driver claimed victory in Japan as his Ferrari rival was forced out with a broken spark plug.

The 32-year-old Mercedes driver, who now tops the F1 Drivers' standings from Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel with four races left, shared videos showing him with baby Hiero on Instagram.

"Ferrari always come back strong", Rosberg told BBC Sport. Lewis has such momentum, everything is going in his direction.

"It will remain interesting so let's see how far he can take it".

Elsewhere, Robert Kubica completed the first of two tests for Williams on Wednesday as the team assess whether a return to Formula 1 is realistic.

Hamilton told Crash.net: "I feel like I have a flawless balance on race weekends, I guess my experience allows me to know when I have to push and when I have to hold back a little bit, and as you saw in Malaysia that's what I do".
