Unwell Hamilton pulls out of tyre test

NEWS STORY
29/11/2016

Lewis Hamilton pulled out of today's tyre test in Abu Dhabi after just a couple of laps.

While wags will insists that the Briton is still sick that teammate Nico Rosberg won the title on Sunday, Mercedes was unable to say exactly what Hamilton is suffering from.

"Pascal was on standby. Lewis felt unwell so Pascal took over," was all a team spokesperson would say.

With Rosberg on promotional duty following his title success, Pascal Wehrlein took over from Hamilton on the last day of testing of the 2017 tyre before pre-season testing gets underway in February.

"Hamilton has always been emotionally fragile, expecting more deference than royals, and this season's events only confirms what we already knew. I think it all started with him being gifted his first championship by the Toyotas slowing down 24 sec. per lap in Brazil in 2008. For that to happen, there would have been so many mobile phone calls going on behind the scenes that even Toto Wolfe would be embarrassed. Then there was him getting his dad to shop his team mates to the stewards at the 2007 Hungarian Grand Prix. That was the point at which I realised that he hadn't grown up, and wouldn't ever. "Sportsman" of the year?"

"Who'd want him? An overrated egotistical cry baby."

"Now there's a surprise. 😏
I will be very surprised if Lewis and Mercedes have a long term future. "
