We all know that driving a car can be dangerous, but now even motor racing's Lewis Hamilton has spoken out on the subject, saying he is disgusted at some of the things he's seen on the roads, especially abroad.
Hamilton, who drives for the Mercedes team, won yesterday's French Grand Prix (pronounced 'Pree'), and extended his lead in the title race to 36 points, but he was severely critical of his fellow drivers. He said:
"It's unbelievable! To think that I race alongside some of these blokes week in, week out, putting my life on the line - it's a wonder there aren't more accidents!"
Asked who he thought were the worst offenders, Hamilton replied:
"Oh, it's the whole bloody lot of them! They're all as bad as each other! There's not a decent driver amongst them! A load of bloody idiots!"
He went on:
"Always tear-arsing around the track without a thought for anyone else, and driving as if they were late for their tea! Bloody hell, they ought to have a bit of respect for other road users, and calm down a bit! We'll all get there in the end - there's no need to go driving like a set of maniacs!"
