Jeremy Clarkson launches another scathing attack on Lewis Hamilton – “Needs a smacked bottom”

Jeremy Clarkson has attacked Lewis Hamilton again in his column for the Sun.

Clarkson hit out at the seven-time world champion for making comments and complaints about Fernando Alonso at the Hungarian Grand Prix. The former Top Gear host chided Hamilton for his actions, and called him out on his column in the Sun.

In his column, Clarkson wrote, “Lewis Hamilton needs a smacked bottom.

“He spent most of last week’s thrilling race on the radio, claiming the chap in front of him, Fernando Alonso, was cheating. Which he wasn’t.”

Clarkson also attacked Hamilton for his celebrations on the podium, which looked a little off. He looked fatigued and out of it on the podium, and had to be taken to the doctor later. However, Clarkson suggested that was a ruse.

“And then when Lewis finishes in third place, he flopped about on the podium claiming he has ‘long COVID,’” Clarkson said.

“Which seems to me to be another way of saying ‘Please ignore Esteban Ocon, the rookie who just beat me. I’m the real hero and don’t you forget that.’

“Well I’m sorry Lewis, but if you behave like that, you aren’t. Oh, and pay your taxes,” he concluded.

Called and uncalled for

Clarkson’s comments are two-fronted. The first about Hamilton’s complaints about Alonso have been echoed by a lot of fans. Alonso staunchly and expertly held off the Mercedes driver for a lot of laps. Even though Hamilton passed him, the time he spent behind the Spaniard meant he had helped his teammate Ocon win his first race in F1.

But what he said about the act citing long COVID seems to be harsh, considering Hamilton did not look well at all after the race. His celebrations on the podium were reserved, and he was diagnosed with excessive fatigue later.

Clarkson isn’t the biggest Lewis Hamilton fan, and he must not be very happy to see Hamilton at the top of the F1 WDC standings. At the end of the season, he will hope it doesn’t stay that way.
