So, what's it take to get a wax statue of yourself at Madame Tussauds' museum in London? Exactly 300 separate measurements and an absolutely ridiculous $230,000. Oh yeah... managing to win a Formula 1 drivers championship probably helps your cause, too.
Lewis Hamilton, the youngest person ever to score an F1 driving title, has now been immortalized in wax at the aforementioned museum, joining life-sized figures of fellow racers Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell and Michael Schumacher.

We've always found humanoid wax statues a bit off-putting, but we're sure young Hamilton feels honored to join such legends of motorsports. Plus, it will have to suffice until he wins his third championship, at which time McLaren has promised to give him his very own F1 LM supercar.
