He has enough fun on the track...and should take it easy off of it.  Silly boy.   :nono:

Do they ship him a personal car (it said that it was his)?

I have just seen the news clip of Lewis when he was stopped by the police, and I must say, he looked well, pretty stupid to be honest.  Why a guy with his natuaral skills and a promising future, would do such a thing like this on the eve of qualifying/GP is beyond comprehension.

From Crash net.

It is also not the first time Hamilton has had his road car removed from him by police, after similar action was taken when he was clocked speeding at 196km/h on a French motorway less than three years ago. How this latest PR blunder will affect his reputation remains to be seen. :o :o

We shall have to wait and see!!!!

Flies in the face of the road safety schemes the FIA try to support.  Not a good move Lewis  :(

Lads go easy he's a young man. :stop:  I can remember doing loads of stuff I shouldn't driving cars when I was young, sometimes it had consequences either from the boys in blue or the cost of repairing the bumper or wing. I can't think it will do any harm to his reputation or his standing with sponsors, it's better to get bad press than no one talk about you at all. :D

They take your ride away for barking the tires?  :swoon:

Just about everybody I know (including Claw_grrl and myself) would be on foot. If they tried that here, we'd overthrow the government!

Yeah he's young, but he's a highly paid professional driver, he should know much better than that.

Even more stupid though is doing it in the state with the toughest road laws in Australia.

much ado about sweet FA!

typical b bureaucrats, as if a F! world champion's car is not under expert control

oh the horror - lewis actually spins his wheels

oh the horrendous terror to life and limb

f bureaucrats and their proven failed thinking about road safety

always fixated by speed to the exclusion of everything else

a pox on them all  :tease:

Sorry Sennaman, I gotta disagree, I think it's fantastic that the cops have treated him exactly the same as any other 'hoon'.  It doesn't matter that the car was in complete control, he broke the local laws and was also sending a message that it's ok to behave that way on the streets.  While he knows how to control that situation the young impressionable moron that tries to emulate his activities doesn't have the same knowledge, skill or control and could very well kill someone.

For once the victorian police do something right. (and trust me, that's a rare thing).

Got to agree with romephius...why shouldn't he be treated the same as everyone else?  And besides, if he is the role model he purports to be, it's not the right signal to send out ....and the "bad experience" showed in this morning's quali!!!!  by the way, I am a huge fan of Lewis H.

no worries Rom. Just my opinion as always.  :D

I still think this law is asinine. Lewis HAMILTON is not a hoon and to be called one for "breaking traction" of his car's tyres, and to have a law like that, just beggars belief.

NZ has one similar too but my fellow Kiwis are so "road anal" I expect them to have such puritanical attitudes/laws but fair dinkum Aussies I thought were above such inanities.

I do support the police but I am dead set against this stupid law unless it is used for the purpose it was established; to get rid of the real hoons of our society and not harass ordinary citizens.

When it is used to quell innocent or harmless exurberance it is embarassing and frankly a misuse of power.

a pox on all bureaucrats and their dumb thinking!

Although I'm glad he wasn't treated with white gloves, I wonder sometimes if we can really call the average F1 driver a 'role model'?  A sports icon sure, but considering the antics of many off-track, and a few on-track, why should anyone look to them as a role model?  The marketers may want us to think of them that way when they are hocking the sponsors ware, but come on, many of them got there because of a huge pot of luck and timing, and sometimes just money.  I want my kid's role models to have a lot more than luck, timing or money.  A little more intelligence and a lot of common sense to start with.

Just my opinion.
