Lewis Hamilton doesn't leave the speed at the track

Lewis Hamilton drives fast. It's kind of a prerequisite for being a race car driver. Problem is, he occasionally has a bit of trouble keeping the fast on the track.

While in Melbourne for the Australian Grand Prix, Hamilton, the 2008 Formula One champion, got a little "over exuberant" -- his words -- while driving away from Albert Park, the race location, and got tagged by the Melbourne heat. They said he was skidding his rear wheels and impounded his silver Mercedes Sedan. He'll get it back on Monday.

"I was driving in an over-exuberant manner and, as a result, was stopped by the police," Hamilton said in a statement. "What I did was silly, and I want to apologize for it."

Weak apology, Lewis, very weak. I recommend you go back and watch some Smokey and the Bandit to learn how to deal with the cops.
