Lewis Hamilton to drive Indian Grand Prix in motorised wheelchair

October 28, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Following yet more problems for McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton with the stewards in the practice session for this weekend’s Indian Grand Prix, the race organisers have announced he is to be forced into a motorised wheelchair in order to ensure the safety of other drivers.

This season Hamilton has been punished for everything from overtaking other drivers to driving too fast, and is actually said to be quite enthusiastic about his new set of wheels which should mean that he avoids getting any drive-through penalties.

One of the race management team announced, “In order to keep Lewis Hamilton out of trouble on the track – and off Felipe Massa’s rear-wing – we have teamed-up with a local care home to lease this special vehicle for Lewis’s use for the weekend.

“We recognise that it lacks some of the aerodynamic advantages of his McLaren, but at least there’ll be less opportunity for him to cut up his rivals at 180 miles per hour.

“Actually, depending on how qualifying goes, the government might step in and upgrade his ride to one of the new environmentally-friendly cars that they’re subsidising.

“But no need to panic – the top speed is a cool 50 miles per hour only.”

    Handy top speed for the pit lanes as well. Crafty tactics there.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
