Busted: F1 Driver Lewis Hamilton Rips Skid on Melbourne Street, Gets Busted

01 Apr

We read an amusing report on Autoblog over the weekend that F1 driver Lewis Hamilton was busted pulling a burnout in Melbourne – on a public stretch of road. While that piece of road is used as part of the Albert Park race course, at all other times the road is a public thoroughfare.

Lewis’ Mercedes Benz was reportedly impounded for two days under the tough Victorian anti-hoon laws, proving that celebrity won’t always get you out of trouble. We guess that as motoring enthusiasts, this news is probably heartening, knowing that the cops don’t just discriminate against the average car lover.
