Lewis Hamilton defended his management team XIX Entertainment, following Bernie Ecclestone labeled the way he was being managed a “disaster”. Lewis signed with XIX Entertainment in early 2011 having come apart from his father Anthony the year before

“I think he just fell into a lot of people that I think weren’t good for him. I think this year XIX have taken a huge amount of criticism which has been massively unfair and that’s a lot to do with me, my fault really,” the McLaren driver told SpeedTV.

“They’ve wanted to be here every single race, they’ve been nothing but supportive.

“I control it and I decided not to have them at every race because I wanted to be on my own at some races. For the future I’ll have them at every race.

“But they’ve taken negative criticism and they’re still there supporting me.

“They’ve never ever had any impact on my thought process of how I handle things. I’ve really taken that all on board myself.”

2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton finished 2011 season with fifth on the drivers’ championship. He was lots of time struggled in On-track and off-track.

“This year I’ve not used the resources that I have to the optimum,” he said. They’ve been there to help and I’ve not used them when I needed them.

“But I know that moving forward it will be a successful relationship and partnership. I think they’re fantastic. Recently I had lunch with Simon in New York and I loved it. He’s a really fantastic guy.

“I couldn’t be happier with the decision I’ve made because I’ve some incredible people around me and I’m really looking forward to the future.”
