Posted By: Staff

Melbourne, Mar. 29 (ANI): Lewis Hamilton ranted against his McClaren team after seeing the 'drive of his life' wrecked by an Australian Grand Prix cock-up.

His hopes of finishing second behind Jenson Button were ended by a needless second tyre stop.

"Whose call was it to bring me in? Freaking terrible idea," blasted Hamilton in a radio outburst to his McLaren team.ccording to The Sun, the heated exchange was broadcast by BBC Radio 5 Live, forcing commentator Anthony Davidson to apologise for the language.

Hamilton, rocked by a reckless driving rap in Melbourne on Friday, finished sixth after an error from Aussie Mark Webber cost him further time.

He added: "I think I probably had one of the drives of my life. But due to the strategy, I was put further back.

"It has not been an easy weekend and I just want to move on. But I'm happy with the job I did. I drove my heart out and I think I deserved better than what I ended up with," he said. (ANI)
