Hamilton defies social media ban with F1 Snapchat post

On the very same day he acknowledged the ban, world champion Lewis Hamilton defied Bernie Ecclestone by filming inside the F1 paddock.

Fiercely protective of the sport’s exclusive rights, the Ecclestone-led Formula One Management had reportedly noticed that Hamilton often films footage on his iPhone for ‘Snapchat’ videos.

“The team (Mercedes) got a message and told me to stop,” said Hamilton in Bahrain. “You have to pay money for that and I accept that.”

But British tabloids The Sun and the Mirror say the triple world champion immediately defied the ban by filming himself inside the Bahrain paddock.

Indeed, the ‘Snapchat’ video summary posted by Hamilton on Friday depicts him arriving at the track, walking in the paddock and inside the team garage.
