In the wake of a processional European Grand Prix in Valencia in which there were barely any passing manoeuvres throughout, Formula 1 World Championship leader Lewis Hamilton claimed the sport can become 'boring' and 'a bit dull' [see separate story - click here].

Since then, the McLaren-Mercedes star - controversially stripped of his breathtaking victory in a thrilling Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps at the weekend - has denied making the claims, with Autosport quoting the 23-year-old as having insisted: "I don't remember saying it was boring."

"I remember watching Formula 1 before I got here and sometimes it's boring to watch," he then countered. "You just fall asleep! Hopefully next year will be more exciting."
