Lewis Hamilton has dedicated his Formula 1 World Championship win to Nissan Patrol drivers in the UAE after a blistering start in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix sealed his Drivers’ title.
“I put in hours of practice on the Corniche while in Abu Dhabi,” said the British racing star. “I knew the start would come down to nanoseconds so what better place to hone my skills than at the traffic lights near Spinneys in Khalidiya?”
Hamiliton confirmed that he had spent three hours wheel-spinning up and down the Corniche the night before the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, managing to evade any attention by not stopping at the ADNOC Dunkin’ Donuts franchise.
“I stayed incognito by hiring a white Nissan Patrol LE from Diamond Lease,” he added, “and I think the blacked-out windows and Fayez AlSaeed CD on full blast probably helped.”
“The only downside when it came to the actual race was that I was waiting for Felipe Massa behind me to honk his horn 0.00000026 seconds after the lights went green, but of course I couldn’t hear him for the bloody noise.”
