Hamilton hits out at F1 'kids'
Lewis Hamilton has hit out at the lack of “gentlemen” on a grid increasingly full of “kids”.

“There are too many kids in the sport now,” the reigning world champion told Germany’s Sport Bild.

He is obviously referring to the trend for younger and younger race drivers, like 17-year-old Max Verstappen, as he contrasted the F1 today with the Sir Stirling Moss era.

“At that time, the drivers were real gentlemen,” Hamilton said. “Loyalty and friendship still played an important role.

“Today I think there are no gentlemen in formula one. Everyone thinks only of himself.”

But that is not all the 30-year-old Briton rues. “I miss the girls in the paddock. There are so many men in there now that it’s not even funny,” said Hamilton. (GMM)
