Exxonmobil is giving Forecourt Trader readers the chance to win a limited-edition print of Lewis Hamilton.

The oil used in the picture was actually taken directly from the Mobil 1 race oil in the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes car in which the 24-year-old won last year's British Grand Prix at Silverstone.

The oil company commissioned US artist David Macaluso to paint the picture, of which just 50 copies were made.

It was done to celebrate Hamilton's title success and also to highlight Mobil's role in the launch earlier this year of National Oil Check Week a national car maintenance initiative.

The 2008 FIA Formula One World Drivers' Champion Lewis Hamilton said: "I'm very impressed with the oil painting. I've always known that the Mobil 1 in my race car is an important component that can give us an edge over our rivals in some circumstances, but I'd never have guessed you could use it to paint with; the oil gives this picture a unique look and feel."
