Lewis Hamilton gesture caught on camera as Mercedes star left furious


Lewis Hamilton’s angry reaction has been caught on camera as the seven-time champion struggled in Saudi Arabia. The Mercedes star made the gesture after he appeared to be held up by an Aston Martin on his hot lap.

Hamilton caught the AMR23 in the run-up to the quick right-hander at turn 15 which prompted the 38-year-old to run wide. He aborted his lap but made sure to make his feelings clear as he flicked his hand in annoyance while driving past. 

He took to his team radio to complain about the heavy traffic as drivers struggled to find space on the tight street circuit. His race engineer, Peter Bonnington simply responded: “Copy, Yeah, very busy now.”

Hamilton has continued to lack pace in Jeddah despite winning the Grand Prix back in 2021. He was only fifth fastest on Saturday afternoon with a lap one second slower than Max Verstappen’s Red Bull. 

However, Hamilton was not the only one to struggle with traffic in the run-up to qualifying. Verstappen moaned at race engineer Gianpaiero Lambiase after Lando Norris almost made contact with him at the end of sector one. 

Shouting on team radio, the Dutchman moaned: “’Mate! *********.” Lambiase simply responded: “Apologies”. The FIA also noted the incident between the two friends which came towards the end of the session.

However, race stewards determined that no further investigation was necessary meaning neither driver will be hit with a penalty ahead of qualifying.
