Lewis Hamilton Sprays champagne on President Putin

Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton has celebrated his victory today at the Sochi Grand Prix by spraying Russian President Vladimir Putin with champagne on the winners’ podium.
Mercedes driver Hamilton took first place today, ahead of Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel of Germany, and Force India driver Sergio Perez of Mexico
It comes just months after Hamilton came under fire for spraying a hostess in the face with champagne after winning the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai
After being crowned victor of the Grand Prix race, Mercedes driver Hamilton took the moment to celebrate in his traditional extravagant style.
The President had handed Hamilton the winner's trophy just moments before, after standing in silence for the national anthem. 

President Putin stepped up to congratulate the British driver on the podium, taking some time away from his activities in Syria to share in celebrations.Lewis Hamilton and President Vladimir Putin celebrate together on the winners' podium after the Mercedes victory in SochiFormula One driver Lewis Hamilton has celebrated his victory today at the Sochi Grand Prix by spraying Russian President Vladimir Putin with champagne on the winners’ podium

Viewers have been quick to turn to Twitter, posting their concerns for Hamilton’s well-being after the incident.
‘Putin responds by giving his political opposition kill-squad Lewis Hamilton’s home address. Nice knowing you Lewis,’ wrote one.
Another added: ‘How long until Lewis Hamilton is found dead in his bathtub?’
A third added: ‘You best watch your back brother, soaking Putin not a good idea when he can bomb you from 1,000 miles away!!!’
But the pair enjoyed more than one cosy moment at the event, and even shared a post-race hug in the drivers’ room before Hamilton headed to the podium.
The racing driver also told President Putin that Russia is a 'beautiful country'.
