Hamilton completes Olympic torch relay following all-night party

Lewis Hamilton participated in the Olympic Torch Relay in Luton on Monday, with hundreds cheering him on despite the early start of 6.30 am. Hamilton himself was seen leaving a nightclub a mere 2.5 hours earlier, having partied all night at London hotspots after the British GP. The McLaren driver mentioned that he had purchased his torch and intends to place it above his mantelpiece.

Well done Hamilton, I imagine being pissed as a fart from your night out made the short jog with a glorified lighter somewhat bearable.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
After grooving all night long it was a total frickin blast to carry the torch Nando, it's way cool that they asked me to join the elite group of people who did it.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Hmmm, the elite group of 8000 people. The whole torch thing lost it's magic for me when I saw that twat from the Black Eyed Peas running with it while texting. I hope you wore appropriate man-earrings to match the torch.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
That was the hard part Nando, the torch is like mega-bling so I got Nicole to pick out special rocks for my lobes.
diResta   Paul di Resta
While I congratulate Lewis on his honour, as a future hall-of-famer my hope is that F1 is an Olympic event before I retire. While I may be cruelly denied the time to match the medal tally of fellow legend Sir Steve Redgrave, at least adding an Olympic gold to my startling list of over-achievements would further cement my place in the pantheon of sporting superstars.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Thankfully Di Resta, the only chance you'll ever get of winning an Olympic gold is if they add a category for inane self-inflating soundbites.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
If anyone wants to hold my Olympic torch let me know. You won't want to drop my baton, and if we stay up all night for a Button marathon you can definitely vault with my pole.
johnny   Johnny Herbert
You flower-scented flock of nappy-wearing fancy-dans. The Olympics is for lazy nonces who can only run 100m. Back in the day 9.58 seconds was the time it took a blond bastard called Johnny Herbert to pull a bird, and the only excuse for ending an F1 qualifying session was an earthquake.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I think 9.58 was the average number of laps you completed per race Herbert. For once I agree with you though, as the Regenmeister I didn't really get all the fuss about a little water on track last Saturday.
whiting   Charlie Whiting
We at Race Control are extremely sensitive to driver feedback regarding track conditions Michael, hence our decision to interrupt Saturday's session.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Actually Charlie, I spotted a leaf just off the racing line during the race on Sunday. I almost radioed in to let you know, imagine the consequences if I ran over it.
whiting   Charlie Whiting
Please let me know in future of anything like this Michael. This leaf constituted debris on the track and I would immediately have deployed a safety car until it was satisfactorily removed.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I should add that we may need to get your approval for a revolutionary new part we're working on. We have a device in the cockpit, and when we rotate it, the front wheels turn in unison.
whiting   Charlie Whiting
This sounds both innovative and non-homogeneous Michael, so we'll probably have to ban it. I believe I can justify this by declaring that the driver is operating a system which modifies the direction of the front tyres, thereby affecting airflow over the car. This infringes Article 3.15 of the regulations as it falls under "moveable aerodynamic device".
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
By the way, just so you know what part to look for, we're using the working title of "steering wheel".
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I hear my little protege was back in the car last time out in Silverstone, albeit just a demo run for the GP Ball. Must be good to be "back" Ambrosia?
Ambrosia   Jerome d'Ambrosio
It was fun Fernando but I got a bit freaked out on Sunday. Who was the weird guy with the cap on the podium after the race? I think it might have been that crazy priest who ran onto the track years ago.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Close enough Ambrosia, but it was actually health and safety freak Jackie Stewart. You've actually given me an idea, the next time I need another "random" safety car period I will get you to stage a track invasion when I give the word.
Ambrosia   Jerome d'Ambrosio
I'm not sure Fernando, I'll do anything to be in my car on the track, but running on it sounds really dangerous, I might get hit.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
It's OK Ambrosia, I'll guarantee you'll be in a car on track, I'm just not sure yet whose radiator you'll end up in though.
