Hamilton Disqualified from Australian GP

lrg-3487-01f1gpaus3870Lewis Hamilton has been stripped of his third place in Sunday’s Australian Grand Prix after the FIA ruled that his McLaren team “deliberately mislead” stewards in a post-race enquiry.

Hamilton was awarded third place after the race last weekend after Toyota s Jarno Trulli was penalised for passing under the Safety Car. However Trulli has now been reinstated to third place after the sport s governing body said that Hamilton and McLaren had deliberately mislead the stewards at the hearing on March 29.

On Thursday, Hamilton was summoned before the race stewards again to discuss a “new element” of evidence. It is currently unclear as to what this evidence was however it is thought to be radio communications between Hamilton and the team.
