The terms of their arrangement seem to have changed, but Lewis Hamilton still expects team boss Ron Dennis to give him a multi-million dollar McLaren supercar one day.

We reported earlier this year that the 23-year-old was promised by Dennis the ultra-rare orange $8 million McLaren LM, housed in the team's Woking factory, if he became the 2008 world champion.

But Hamilton told reporters in Sao Paulo on Monday morning that he will be handed the keys with his third drivers' championship.

"We made a deal, three world championships. I will definitely work as hard as I can to get to number three," he said.

Dennis said the LM in question is among the rarest supercars in the world.

He said: "At least I don't have to give it away for a couple of years but it will be a small price to pay for three world championships."
