Hamilton cans rapper ambitions to focus on life at Mercedes
In a new regular column for BBC sport Lewis Hamilton revealed a youthful interest in hip-hop when he was "real swagged out" in baggy trousers, Hamilton now claims he is focused on F1 and he'll "just be in the studio chillin" with a producer in LA, claiming their friendship doens't make them "gangsta". Hamilton has repeated recently that he felt constrained at McLaren, and has found a new found freedom at Mercedes.

I understand Lewis' desire to reveal his personal side as I did in my candid and acclaimed autobiography, "Winning is not Enough." I must stress that baggy trousers represent not only a trip hazard to the wearer, they also fail to provide the recommended testicular support to make one productive on, and off, the track. Although so-called "hip-hop" was not among my pursuits as a wee youngster, my experience as an Olympic standard clay-pigeon shooter has furnished me with marksmanship sufficient to deal with, in a calculated detached manner, the violent threats delineated in their lyrics.

As a clue-less ex-driver let me summarize the Oz GP for my former employers. Promising testing and qualifying pace raises expectations which are swiftly tempered by reliability and tyre degradation issues in the race. Or was that 2012? Hmmm, history does have a habit of repeating itself, hopefully.

My own teammate does a similar trick with champagne glasses, but using other people's necks. I suffered the gross injustice of being robbed of 7th place by a man with a GBH conviction, whose image is in stark contrast with that of myself being a future legend with an impeccable record.

While humour in the face of adversity is a very Red Bull trait Seb, this is no laughing matter. But for the grace of god, we could easily have fitted the ECU from the sister car on your one, and ruined our race. After Alternator-gate this is yet another sinister attempt by outsiders to undermine our dominance.

The unofficial view of the McLaren Group is that teams can inflict damage to third-party parts through their own amendments, so Christian is talking bollox. The McLaren Group would like to officially apologise to Red Bull for a software failure during the Australian GP and we will work together in future to avoid a repeat.

Of more immediate concern after practice in Malaysia is that Pirelli have joined in conspiring against us in designing tyres specifically unsuited to our car. Adrian and I have discussed it and we may re-allocate sets from the sister car in Sepang so that Hungry Heidi will survive the race.
