Lewis Hamilton has criticized the driving of his fellow drivers during the first and second practice of the European Grand Prix at Valencia. While not directly pointing fingers at any specific drivers, Hamilton pointed out that the behaviour that irked him was the slowing down of drivers trying to build a buffer to the one in front in order to do fast laps, someiems ruining the laps of the drivers on hot laps coming from behind.
He explained: “It’s very important to create a gap ahead if you want a clear lap – you can’t see ahead around the corners because they’re all blind,” said Hamilton. “Some drivers just back up into you. They take advantage of the fact they have a small gap behind them and don’t care about who’s following.
