    Its hard to believe but even the likes of Lewis Hamilton have now experienced the draconian traffic laws in Australia. The former Formula One world champion was tonight caught and charged with hooning in his Mercedes-Benz as he left Albert Park.

    Reports say the talented driver, arguably one of the best drivers in the world, has been arrested for unnecessarily spinning the wheels and performing a fishtail in his company provided Mercedes. Unfortunately for Hamilton, there happened to be a Victoria Police car in sight which consequently pulled him over.

    If being charged charged with improper use of a vehicle wasnt bad enough, the McLaren ace has also lost his company car for 48 hours (not that it would worry him), were it has been confiscated by police under the Victorian anti-hoon laws.

    Witnesses at the scene say Hamilton was trying to hide his face from bystanders. No doubt Victoria Police will make a big deal out of the event, emphasising that even Lewis Hamilton will not get away with hooning.

    Formula One drivers have a rich history of being caught in traffic offences, Hamilton was famously caught speeding at nearly 200km/h in France three years ago which also resulted in his car being impounded by police.

    Well, I learnt a new word today 'hooning' - and here's me thinking it would be something naughty like dogging. I'm mildly disappointed :w00t:

    should do same over here as they do in oz

    take boy racers cars for 2 days

    All of a sudden Lewis Hamilton has gone up in my estimation.

    Screwing the company car was always a great sport, our pool car was an Audi 80 Quattro and the game was to record the maximum speed in 2nd gear.

    Typical sad aussies. If it was any other driver than Lewis or another brit the cops wouldnt have done anything about it.

    Just like taking the Get me out the jungle TV lot to court cos they ate a rat. Sad Aussies,dont like the Brits but havent got the balls to go their own way in their republic.
