June.17 – Anthony Hamilton has defended his son Lewis. Lewis Hamilton was involved four collisions in last two grand prix – The incidents included with Massa, Maldonado, Webber and his team-mate Jenson Button.
Now Anthony Hamilton has entered the debate to support his under-fire son.
“It was just motor racing,” Hamilton said. In Formula One you only have a split second to make those decisions, whether they are right or wrong, you take a decision and you have to go with it.
“At the end of the day if we could all see the future maybe we would do things differently. He just has to remain how he is, carry on driving how he is driving.
“The way he drives now is how he drove to win the World Championship He’s always been like that and he will be like that for the rest of his career. There is nothing wrong with it at all.
“It’s just that now he’s at the front rather than the back, and that’s why everyone has started noticing. But it’s important everybody remains who they are. There is no point in trying to be someone you are not.”
So deep does that belief run, Hamilton insists his son remains a good bet for the world title despite trailing Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel by 76 points with 12 races remaining.
“If I were a gambling man I’d put some money on Lewis winning the championship this year,” You’ll get some great odds. He can do it.” He added
