David Coulthard says Lewis Hamilton's 'folly' for not appointing a new manager showed in Australia – although all the headlines about the McLaren man having his car impounded were 'over the top'.

Very true comments by DC. I don't think LH realises he's a big star and people are watching his every move. His days of just being a "regular guy" are long gone. Any little incident like a burnout and look at all the fuss. A good management team will help him avoid all that rubbish

"I understand the road-safety issue, but Lewis is one of the best drivers on this planet. There is no one I would trust more to burn a bit of rubber and keep the car under perfect control.

"A minor slap on the wrist would have sufficed, although it would have been even more constructive to commit him to some sort of road safety project in Melbourne schools for next year."

I don't have a problem with what Hamilton did. It was hardly dangerous and it's good to see someone acting human, rather than the PR robots we are so used to now.

@ FooAtari - I agree, I have no issue with it either but look at all the fuss. If they really impounded every car that did a burnout, they'd have thousands in lockup every year. No, they made a fuss cause he's famous

Manager? How would a manager have helped him this weekend?

Managers don't ride in the car and tell him what to say over the radio nor is a manager a baby sitter.

If LH is having contract problems or issues with personal sponsors than he needs a manager. Other than that he's responsible for his own actions.

Sounds to me that Hammy needs a Nanny, not a manager. Just to make sure he knows how to behave until he grows up and to tuck him into bed on time to make sure he does not get into any trouble. :p

I think Coulthard would be perfect for the job. DC has the personality for the position and I hear he is looking for a new job..
