Hamilton taken ill in China

High air pollution levels get up Hamilton's nose in China
Mercedes cancelled Lewis Hamilton's media commitments today ahead of Sunday's F1 2013 Chinese Grand Prix after the Briton complained he didn't feel well.

According to reports from the Press Association, the 27-year-old has suffered an allergic reaction, which has left with an inflamed and weeping eye. Although Hamilton made a number of commercial appearances on Wednesday, and did appear at the Shanghai International Circuit today, he was soon 'ordered' to return to his hotel to 'recuperate' ahead of practice on Friday.

He is now due to be seen by a doctor later this evening.

It is understood he should be fine to race this weekend and that higher levels of air pollution than normal are to blame for his nose and eye problems.
