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.

Yeah, I agree. It would be more dangerous for ordinary citizen caught up in this high speeding car. As we all know accident may happen everywhere. Be a good example Mr. Lewis Hamilton!

@ nanner, I don’t think so..public road is not a race track. IMO, as a well renounce F1 race driver, he has the responsibility to be a good role model for the dragster that engage in illegal racing!

Look, it’s a pity that he was caught, but at the end of the day, rules are rules and no-one should be exempt. If any one can safely "control" his burnout and following fishtail, it’s got to be Lewis and those of his ilk. Had it not been spotted by an officer, then none of us would be any the wiser. And those fans watching him leave will cherish it forever.

The thing is nanner, outside of the circuit, there are specific rules and regulations that every one of us should follow as most of them ensures that we have and will have a good system specially in the roads and highways as this is going to make us more safe.

MB crews are taking good care of Hamimton this only proves that no one is above the law, "Law is harsh but it’s the Law".

I don’t see what the problem is the guy is one of the fastest men on the planet I think he deserves to be able to do donuts and drifts where ever he damn well pleases.
