F1 champion Hamilton disqualified from Australian GP results

WORLD F1 champion Lewis Hamilton has been disqualified from last weekend's Australian Grand Prix.

The 24-year-old from Herts has had his third place and all subsequent points from the race chalked off.

The Tewin driver actually crossed the finish line in fourth place in Melbourne, but was later promoted to third ahead of Jarno Trulli following a stewards' inquiry.

After new evidence from the race came to light, the FIA held a hearing earlier today (Thursday) and have now punished Hamilton and excluded McLaren Mercedes from the race.

Trulli's penalty has been overturned and the Toyota driver has been placed third again.

McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton has been disqualified from last weekend’s Australian Grand Prix after a second stewards’ investigation on Thursday decided both he and his team had provided ‘misleading' evidence during a hearing held after the Melbourne race.

Hamilton crossed the finish line in Australia in fourth, but was subsequently promoted to third after Toyota’s Jarno Trulli was handed a 25-second time penalty for passing his McLaren under the safety car during the race’s closing laps.

Stewards, however, decided to reinvestigate the incident after fresh evidence came to light and convened a second meeting in Sepang. After the hearing, the stewards issued the following statement:

“The Stewards having considered the new elements presented to them from the 2009 Australian Formula One Grand Prix, consider that driver No 1 Lewis Hamilton and the competitor Vodafone McLaren Mercedes acted in a manner prejudicial to the conduct of the event by providing evidence deliberately misleading to the Stewards at the hearing on Sunday 29th March 2009, a breach of Article 151c of the International Sporting Code.

"Under Article 158 of the International Sporting Code, the driver No 1 Lewis Hamilton and the competitor Vodafone McLaren Mercedes are excluded from the race classification for the 2009 Australian Grand Prix and the classification is amended accordingly."

In addition to Hamilton’s disqualification, Trulli’s penalty has been withdrawn and the Italian therefore regains his third place - and six world championship points.
