In what could be the ultimate irony, the current points leader in the World Driver’s Championship is in danger of losing his Swiss driver’s license? Why? As Autoevolution reports, it’s because of an accident in 2009 where Hamilton ran a stop sign. Disturbingly, it’s also due to a Maxim magazine interview given by Hamilton’s girlfriend, Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger.
Scherzinger alleges that Hamilton is a wildman behind the wheel, and that Hamilton would surely lose his Swiss license if she dropped a dime on his hoonage. In any other part of the world, Scherzinger’s comments would be dismissed, but Hamilton lives in Switzerland. There is no country on the planet as anal-retentive as Switzerland; to prove my point, the Swiss safety organization Road Cross has asked the local attorney general to revoke Hamilton’s Swiss license. Better yet, they’ve got backing from Swiss politician Pius Segmuller, who wants Hamilton’s license yanked because Hamilton and Scherzinger aren’t good role models and show an absence of character. And no, I’m not making this shit up.
Lewis, if you’re reading this you may think about relocating to Florida, in the United States. Sure, we’ve got traffic laws, but no one enforces them. You could go on TV explaining that you routinely drive our interstates at 200 miles per hour, running elderly motorists off the roads and no one would care. Land is cheap, we have no state taxes, it’s warm most of the year and you’re just a quick flight away from the USGP in Austin, Texas. Send me a quick e-mail if you want me to put you in touch with a realtor.
