Surprising that this happened and wasn’t caught by the cameras, though perhaps everyone was busy watching Vitaly Petrov’s Caterham. I wonder if anyone saw what happened or, better yet, caught it on camera?
I wonder why he first tweets this now.. Seems weird, so long after the event. There are a gazillion fans at Silverstone each and every year, so it seems very odd that this has first come out now…
But if it isn’t just a bad timed April fool, or just a poor excuse to make McLaren look less in bad form (which seems unlikely from Brundle no?) then it could at least have been a part of the reason why his car was so useless in the race..
Maybe Hamilton tried to hide the fact that there was damage so that it wouldn’t just sound like another racing drivers excuse…. Which also seems unlikely.
