"But Officer ......'I try and keep as much of a low profile as I can'."

Said the man with the sparkling diamond earrings after doing a big burnout in front of a large gathered crowd in the complimentary Merc on the way out of the Aus GP.

Here's a thought. If you don't like all the attention, then why sign up with a major PR company whose job it is to keep their clients (Like Beckham, Murray, Wiggins etc) permanently in the public eye?

"I try and keep as low a profile as I can"

"I want to expand my American brand"

How can one person say two such conflicting statements?

He claimed earlier that he still had things to learn, stopping lying should be high up on the learning list.

Are there any other drivers in F1? Is there a week goes by that Lewis does not give an interview? I know he needs to do press as part of his job but surely there must be moments when he can say to a journalist 'no comment', or 'I don't really want to talk about that'.....especially when they stick a mic under his nose and ask him these inane questions about his personal life!

kmi, I think you might find that the drivers above him, Vettel, Alonso and Kimi don't sign up for every interview or modelling shoot that's available to them. I've never heard any of those guys having an ambition to "expand their brand" they seem more interested in their F1 career and that's probably the reason that they are above him in the standings pretty much every year.
