Lewis Hamilton fumes that half of his F1 rivals got away with ‘ILLEGAL’ cars after Grand Prix result ‘tainted’ the sportSeven-time world champion suggested a different course of action that could have prevented the ‘ridiculous event’

LEWIS HAMILTON says the decision to strip him of second place in last Sunday’s US GP has “tainted” the sport. He added: “There are far more drivers’ cars that were illegal and the skid block is not a performance element. “We have had a very stiff and bumpy car for two years and ultimately it failed the regulation. “It was just terrible over the kerbs, if we would have raised the car it would have passed the test.”. Lando Norris, who was promoted to second place in lieu of Hamilton’s disqualification, felt the FIA should have checked all the cars. Norris’ McLaren DID pass the same check as Hamilton and Leclerc’s cars, and said: “They should have done [the whole grid]. So if one car is illegal, then there is a high chance that the other car is.
