Lewis Hamilton gets charged for hooning

By SYF77 on 25 May 2010

It would seem that the only good time Lewis Hamilton had at the Australian Grand Prix was when he was actually smoking the tires of his loaner Mercedes C63 AMG on the open road. Once the burnout was complete, the wheels came off and Hamilton got nicked by the police under Melbourne's anti-hoon laws. The Police had the car impounded.

Lewis has been officially charged by a Melbourne court with intentionally losing control of a vehicle. A summons for a court date of August 24 was given to his Australian solicitor but with the Belgian Grand Prix taking place on August 29, the chance of his appearing on that date seems slim. If nothing else, charging a former Formula 1 world champion and a Swiss resident to boot is the best lesson to every non-world-champion out there who plans to visit Melbourne: Do Not Hoon !

This is not the first (probably not the last too) time Lewis got into trouble with the law. The Brit also had some problems with the law in France back in 2007 after he was caught speeding on a local highway with a Mercedes CLK.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
