Lewis Hamilton has been banned from driving for a month after being caught speeding on a French motorway.

The McLaren Mercedes driver was clocked at nearly 200km/h near the town of Laon on Sunday, with police fining him 600 euros and confiscating his car - which has since been collected on his behalf.

"He was very polite and co-operative," a French police spokesman told Reuters.

Hamilton finished second to Kimi Raikkonen in the Formula 1 standings after the best rookie season in F1 history.
