Hamilton witch-hunt

Things are going from bad to worse for Lewis Hamilton as Formula One drivers have called for a meeting to discuss his recent driving, ahead of the Japanese grand prix at Suzuka.

At least this is what Italian specialist magazine Autosprint has claimed, after his most recent bust-up with Felipe Massa last weekend.

Massa has sarcastically suggested that the Brit call on his father for help. In turn, his father Anthony Hamilton has lay the blame at the door of the 26-year-old’s management company, led by Simon Fuller.

Former F1 driver Hans-Joachim Stuck suggests the 26-year-old needs thereapy, while David Coulthard thinks he would benefit a wise manager like Martin Brundle.

‘It doesn't have to be a manager necessarily,’ wrote the square-jawed Scot in the Telegraph, ‘but you need someone to be able to sit down and talk to you with complete honesty. To tell you you're being an idiot.’

Whoever that person might be, they’d have a job on their hands.

McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh offered a luke warm defence of Hamilton, saying: ‘Lewis is still a young guy, he is learning and he will learn from all of this. He will win races and I am sure he is going to win more championships.’
