F1 » Police stop Hamilton for 'over-exuberant' driving

A year on from the infamous Melbourne 'lie-gate' scandal, former F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton has committed another costly PR blunder in the same city - after being pulled over by police and having his Mercedes sportscar impounded for 'over-exuberant' driving on public roads

"Cast a shadow" and "PR blunder" should never ever be used when a person, especially a race car driver, smokes his tires while exiting a parking lot. I'm just stunned.

More press trying to make something out of nothing.

If Hamilton tries to really apologise for this then I will lose respect for him. Stand your ground Lewis and tell the press you were having fun and they can go screw themselves.

I am getting tired of needless public apologies anyway. Tiger, I don't care if you shagged a load of hookers. Apologise to your wife, not the public.

"The incident is sure to cast a shadow over the eleven-time grand prix-winner's preparations for the second race on the F1 2010 World Championship calendar", "How this latest PR blunder will affect his reputation remains to be seen."

Crash, by and large a great site for news although now and again "news" like this is posted on the site that I would expect to see if I read News of the World instead of what I would like to be objective and real news.

Come on Crash, don't go down the sensationalistic journo route!!! Keep it real!!!

Nice one Lewis, Good Lad.

Hope the irony of a Nation born of a Penal Colony arresting someone is not lost on everybody, I can hardly wait for the Police Email about it all. :rolleyes:
