Hamilton unhurt in minor road accident in Monaco

Fontvieille (France), Nov 12 (IANS) Triple Formula 1 world champion Lewis Hamilton escaped unhurt after being involved in a minor road accident.

The 30-year-old said he made “very light contact” with a stationary vehicle but that no-one was hurt on Monday.

Hamilton had delayed his flight to this weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix until Wednesday on medical advice as he has been suffering with a fever.

“I am feeling better and I’m currently boarding the plane to Brazil,” the Mercedes F1 driver wrote on Instagram on Wednesday.

Hamilton will arrive a day later than planned for the penultimate race of the season.

Explaining the accident, he added: “Whilst ultimately, it is nobody’s business, there are people knowing my position that will try to take advantage of the situation and make a quick buck. No problem.”

“Nobody was hurt, which is the most important thing. But the car was obviously damaged and I made very light contact with a stationary vehicle.”

“I am informing you because I feel we all must take responsibility for our actions. Mistakes happen to us all but what’s important is that we learn from them and grow. Can’t wait for the weekend Brazil,” he added.

Hamilton, who has never won at Interlagos (Brazilian Grand Prix), clinched his third World Championship at the United States Grand Prix last month.

He finished second behind team-mate Nico Rosberg at the Mexican GP on November 1.
