Oh dear

Fortunately he can probably afford to pay the fine, plus cover the cost of chauffeur-driven limmo for a month

Re: Hamilton looses license

Wouldn't it have been great if he had been driving a Renault or a Ferrari?

Mad Max would have probably docked him all points for the next 20 years.

Re: Hamilton looses license

Apparently he was very polite to the Gendarme's, ever the ambassador.
At least Senna gave cop's a run for their money on the M4O some year's back.

Re: Hamilton looses license

If he was in a Ferrari he wouldn't have been docked points If he was in a McLaren his tyres were probably bald and in danger of exploding

He maybe wouldn't have been so polite in reply, if the gendarme had said "Bonjour Monsieur, and who do you think you are? Fernando Alonso?"

Never though of that, how does an offence you commit in another country have implications on your British driving license?

Re: Hamilton loses license

Quite a few F1 drivers got nicked over the year by the French police I think.

Yeah, this was a sneaky one last year some time. Offences in Europe apply across the board. They can ban you, crush your motor , the lot!!!

Lol, They can only ban you from driving in France and that is only reinforced if you are caught again in France.
