Organisers of the Spanish grand prix are waiting for McLaren's go-ahead before pressing on with plans for a ceremony this week to honour Lewis Hamilton.

As is traditional at the Circuit de Catalunya, world champions are honoured with an entry along the 'Avenue of Champions' access road.

Race organisers want Hamilton, 24, to attend, but the local sports daily Marca said McLaren has not been able to confirm whether McLaren has authorised the Friday unveiling.

The event is tentatively scheduled to take place after Friday's two practice sessions.

Last year during winter testing at the track, a group of fans triggered an international racism scandal by blacking out their faces and verbally abusing the McLaren driver.
