Lewis charged over Oz burnout

Lewis Hamilton has been charged by police following an incident outside the Australian GP paddock back in March.

The McLaren driver was stopped by police shortly after leaving the paddock after being seen performing a burnout for fans on the side of the street.

His Mercedes was impounded and the F1 ace apologised for what he called a ‘silly’ incident.

However, Lewis has now been charged by police with intentionally losing control of vehicle with a court hearing scheduled for August 24.

With that date being just days before the Belgian GP at Spa, it remains to be seen if Lewis will have to appear at the hearing.
