Hamilton misses Road Safety memo Down Under


Apparently McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton didn’t get the memo regarding this weekend’s FIA Make Roads Safe campaign launch... As the Young Lion failed to keep his foot off of the “Loud Pedal” in his loaner Merc... As apparently Lewis had to drive around in a 2010 Mercedes C63! And got nabbed outside of Albert Park Friday evening for doing excessive burn-outs in his Mercedes rental car, after having earlier set the quickest lap time of the day...

As the Police apparently cited the young Briton for braking Australia’s "Anti-hoon"law, which is set to keep young drivers from excessive wheel spinning, fishtailing or doing Doughnuts on public roadways! As the ‘Copper’s impounded the young “Louise’s” vehicle before giving him a lift back to his hotel...

Meanwhile this week marks the kickoff of the FIA’s 10 year Make Roads Safe campaign in conjunction with the United Nations Decade of Action (2011-2020) program, as all F1 Constructors will carry decals on their chassis, along with various makes running extra signage – which the Renault is said to be sporting the message upon its front wing and sidepods this weekend, while I suppose some cynics might suggest that the Reggie is simply filling in a bit of its unsponsored car?

Meanwhile a very week apology was issued by McLaren in the wee hours of the morning, noting how the 2008 World Champion was sorry for his shenanigans...

Hmm? Wasn’t it Melbourne a year ago where Lewis Hamilton and McLaren were subsequently caught for LYING to the F1 Officials over radio communications which ultimately cost the team’s Sporting Director Davey Ryan his job...

Oh whale! At least Lewis’s father wasn’t behind the wheel, eh?
