It’s oil over for Lewis…

Mr Hamilton is on a bit of a PR offensive at the moment. Along with that Santander ad he’s also been sort of involved in this other spot of promotion, to do with one of his sponsors, Mobil 1:

Making of Lewis’ ad

You might have seen Santander’s new ad with Lewis Hamilton over the last few days – it debuted on Sunday – and we’ve managed to track down the ‘making of’ on good ol’ YouTube. It’s a tad cheesy, but there’s some interesting bits in it, especially the camera on a tiny dolly:

Lewis: disqualified

I’m so fed up with this post-race rule changing. It was confusing enough that Lewis Hamilton got promoted to third after the Oz GP finished, but now he’s been disqualified.

Australian GP preview

It’s nearly upon us. Even with all the winter testing and new regulations excitement, it’s felt like a long time since Felipe Massa took the chequered flag in Brazil last year.
