In 2008, Briton Hamilton gutted the excitable and highly partisan Interlagos crowd by pipping Brazilian Massa to the world championship.

And throughout this season the pair have been at odds with a series of on and off-track incidents.

"I have no idea what the reaction will be," said the McLaren driver before arriving in Sao Paulo for the season finale. "I just know that I have had great support every time I have been to Brazil.

"I am sure there will be a few Felipe fans who will be less happy," he acknowledged.

"It was tough when I was racing with Felipe for the championship but I think I will be fine. If not, then it will be interesting," added Hamilton.
