Hamilton was angry but he is just playing the game
Drivers putting pressure on teams and manufacturers is nothing new. It has happened for decades, if not longer, and Lewis Hamilton’s outburst after his gut-wrenching failure at the Malaysian Grand Prix was understandable on a number of levels.
Firstly, he had just lost a golden chance to recapture the lead of the world championship after various problems had befallen Nico Rosberg. And secondly, he has a point – the bad fortune does always seem to be heading in his direction.talk of sabbotage is stupid, but don’t think that Hamilton’s comments were purely down to red mist steaming up his visor as he stepped from the smouldering car. He knew they would draw headlines, and he knew that Merc would take them seriously.
Every nut, bolt and voltage cable on his race car will be checked and double-checked now, which means Lewis’s outburst will have just the effect he wants it to have. Maybe he isn’t being so rash. Matt James, Editor
