Hamilton hits back at Ron Dennis

World champion Lewis Hamilton says that, he does not need to make any changes to his private life despite attracting criticism from his former McLaren F1 team boss Ron Dennis.

Recently, Ron Dennis says that Lewis Hamilton “wouldn’t be allowed” to live his current lifestyle were he still at McLaren.

The Brit secured his third world title in US Grand Prix this year but has made no secret of his partying performance away from the race track this season.

This was never in sharper focus than at the Brazilian Grand Prix, when the Lewis arrived late subsequent to a fever and minor car crash in Monaco he put down to a week of heavy partying.

It prompted Dennis, who also explained his relationship with Hamilton to that of a “surrogate father”, to say: “If he was at McLaren he wouldn’t be behaving the way he is because he wouldn’t be allowed to… He’s shaking off some chains he didn’t want to have.”

“Firstly a man cannot be a surrogate father, can he? A woman is a surrogate mother. Isn’t that right?” Following the Abu Dhabi GP qualifying Hamilton was quoted as saying by AP.

“Why he was talking about me, I don’t know – probably because they don’t have too many other positive things to talk about.

“I am a three-time world champion. Who I am today is who I am, and I will behave this way regardless of who I was working for.

“I don’t feel like I behave wrongly. I don’t think it is a negative. It has obviously been a positive impact on my career so it is not me that needs to make any changes.”

Again Rosberg beat Hamilton in vibrant style to secure his sixth consecutive pole position for Sunday’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Hamilton secured pole at 11 of the opening 12 races, but has not started from the front of the pack since Italian Grand Prix.
