Nov.10 - In the wake of the 2008 world championship, a Lewis Hamilton lookalike is expected to begin impersonating the McLaren driver full-time.

Neil Davis, a 30-year-old graphic designer, also accepts work as a dead-ringer for the McLaren driver.

According to The Sun newspaper, he is managed by a top lookalike agency and could soon be getting enough offers to make a good living.

"I've been getting busier and busier," he said, referring to his appearances at shopping centres, nightclubs and car dealers.

"I have met Lewis and he said it was weird that I looked so much like him, but he didn't mind," Davis added.

Not surprisingly, he said he had to arrange for a replica McLaren driving suit to be made at his own expense.

"McLaren wouldn't give me one," he explained.
