Lewis Hamilton had a pretty memorable weekend in Melbourne, though it’s not exactly for reasons that would make the Englishman jump for joy.
By now, we all know how his Australian Grand Prix turned out and while he deserves to be upset over getting clipped by Mark Webber and ruining what would have been a blazing charge up the order, the other news-grabbing event for Hamilton last weekend is something he – or his posse – doesn’t want to be making the rounds on the Internet.
We’re talking about that little burnout incident Hamilton was involved in a day before the race. Yeah, the one where he got ticketed by the police and had his loaned car impounded. If you missed it, then watch this video, which was taken by a freelance camera man, and see the aftermath of Hamilton’s burnout-gone-wrong-incident.
We’re resisting the urge to roll over in laughter as to how Lewis Hamilton’s desperately tried to keep the Formula One driver out of a cameraman’s range after the former F1 world champion was flagged by the Victorian Police for his thrill-seeking burnout session on-board a loaned Mercedes E63 AMG at a public road near the Albert Park racing circuit in Melbourne over the weekend.
