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.

What a load of monkeys.

How can you intentionally lose control???? Isn’t that superior control.

Think the cops should put the tits back on their heads and go catch some proper crims for once…losers.

I think all us Aussies should get behind our Webby…or else! Do you know about the secret memo he sent to the Cops (remember Underbelly!) to have Lewis’s Mercedes throttle remotely controlled whilst disabling the traction control enabling this clever plot to remove the enormous threat of Lewis from the championship?! Mark is also secretly betting all our OZ governments super mining tax windfall on Australia to Win in the up and coming Ashes after getting our team to “take a fall” last time creating the conditions to get great odds on all the UK betting! Realistically when “the Webster” got those US banking and insurance companies to invest in those overly exposed mortgage deals to create the GFC…allowing Australia to be so well positioned in supplying Asia our raw resources and thus maximising the profit on the new tax was really a masterful move. You must agree cos I can convince you by writing it online! So… be afraid…very afraid…it is no minor Nanny State enforcement issue, Lose of control violation or simple justice or Law following…its the Webby Web reaching out! Remember you heard it here first! ;-)

How did he lose control of the vehicle if he was in control the entire time?

You people who try to defend him because of his level of skill and the fact he is an F1 driver are failing to see the point. Pure and simply, he broke the law. Those others who refer to Weber’s current standings or (I couldn’t believe this one) the ashes as the influence behind this are nothing short of moronic. This happened before Mark’s current success and as for the ashes? What does that have to do with anything? Again, the law in Victoria is clear and he broke it.

Also with regards to that old “UK criminals” chestnut: who are the more stupid ones….those who stole a loaf of bread to feed their families in corrupt 18th century UK or those who sent these people away from nagging opinionated half wits to pure paradise where on the completion of their sentance were given their own land to toil, money from the crown and a new way of life? I aways find it amusing that people bring this up. I know where I prefer living.

I wonder if it was Webber who’d been caught doing that, if the police would have charged him or encouraged him to win the Aussie GP and make Aussies proud. I also wonder whether all the Aussies defending this malarky and saying that even after Hamilton has been fined and his car impounded, he needed to furthermore appear in court for something as basic as a wheel burnout (not something like real reckless endangerment) always give the law their 100% support & would do so if they, their friends or family are taken to court for very minor traffic violations, after already being fined and having their vehicle impounded.

Heck, I’m sure that if they were in Britain and they got pulled over and warned (not even fined etc) for something similar, they’d be cussing British police.

Stop being so self-righteous and hypocrytical people. After all, I’m sure that almost everyone on this forum has exceeded the speed limit at least once before. Isn’t that also a crime?
