Race ace Lewis Hamilton charged over driving stunt

Monday May 24, 2010

Lewis Hamilton has been charged with intentionally losing control of a vehicle following an incident earlier this year.

The Formula One star was pulled over by police in Australia on March 26 after spinning his car to leave tyre marks on a public road.

"I was driving in an over-exuberant manner and, as a result, was stopped by the police," said Lewis.

"What I did was silly, and I want to apologise for it."

A hearing is now due to take place on August 24 at Melbourne Magistrates' Court, reports the BBC.
