28Lewis Hamilton charged by Australian authorities for hooning

It would seem that the only good time Lewis Hamilton had at the Australian Grand Prix was when he was actually smoking the tires of his loaner Mercedes C63 AMG. Once that burnout was complete, though, the wheels came off: Hamilton got nicked by the police under Melbourne's anti-hoon laws, had the car impounded, qualified 11th for the race and finished sixth.

10Lewis Hamilton to sign with Mika Hakkinen as manager?

Let's take a brief look at where the careers of two of McLaren's most successful contemporary drivers are at these days. On the one hand, we have Lewis Hamilton, 2008 world champion. After years of being successfully handled by his father, Lewis professionally disengaged from Anthony's management earlier this year. McLaren's been taking care of its star in the meantime, but team principal Martin Whitmarsh is reportedly encouraging Lewis to retain independent management.

Lewis Hamilton was busted putting a little a lotta extra temperature into the tires of a Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG loaned to him during his stay in Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix.

23Lewis Hamilton busted for doing burnouts in public?

Police only recently released the name, after only confiding that a 25-year-old Briton with Swiss residency was arrested in a Mercedes sedan doing burnouts in a Melbourne, Australia suburb. Yep, that's Lewis Hamilton, driving down a stretch of section used for the Albert Park track in a Benz sedan and lighting the tires up (sounds oddly familiar). The road was open for public use, and the public watchdogs – Victoria state police – nabbed him for it.

7McLaren team splits use of KERS to determine effectiveness

In case you haven't been paying attention, Formula 1 as we know it appears ready to come completely apart at the seams with the front-running teams launching a separate series that could potentially run concurrently with what's left of today's F1. With all of that going on, it's easy to forget that there's an actual race taking place this weekend in Britain.

10Oil Painting: Lewis Hamilton rendered in used Mobil 1

Components from F1 cars – especially championship-winning F1 cars – don't go to waste. Collectors eagerly snap them up and put them on display as fast as the teams will release them.
