Lewis Hamilton did a great job in front of his home crown for British Grand Prix, but he little-bit dissatisfied with the plastic trophy.
Traditionally, the top podium holder, collect a gold trophy from the Royal Automobile Club but today he was received a plastic trophy look like the logo of Santander, the bank which title-sponsored the Grand Prix.
“Where’s the gold trophy man?” he asked the podium interview conductor and former F1 driver David Coulthard.
“This one is falling apart!” he added pointing out to the bottom panel of the trophy which had come off, much to the shame of Santander.
The trophy banter continues in the news conference as Lewis Hamilton says: “The bottom fell off the trophy on the podium. It’s plastic. It must have cost about £10.”
He pauses and then says: “Don’t write anything bad about that, though.”
Valtteri Bottas chips in: “Too late.” Hamilton laughs saying: “Yeah, that was off the record.”
“I was looking for the gold trophy but they did not have it. They don’t make trophies like that anymore!” Hamilton added.
