Things seem to move particularly slowly in the Antipodes, with the Victorian Police finally deciding to formally charge Lewis Hamilton for his particularly brainless hooning antics at the Australian Grand Prix, where his sponsor-issued Mercedes-Benz E500 was impounded by the long arm of the law.
The formal charge of “intentional loss of control of a motor vehicle” will be heard in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 24 August – just days before the opening practice session of the Belgian Grand Prix.
It has not been confirmed – and it is highly unlikely – if Hamilton will be present at the hearing.
