Hamilton hits back at Ecclestone criticism

Global Motorsport Media

Lewis Hamilton has hit back at Bernie Ecclestone's criticism of his management team.

With the 2008 world champion's calamitous 2011 season now behind the British driver, F1 chief executive Ecclestone said the handing of Hamilton by Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller this year has been "a disaster".

The 26-year-old McLaren driver hit back this week, telling the Guardian that the criticism of Fuller and his company XIX Entertainment is "massively unfair".

Hamilton said his problems in 2011 were "my fault really".

"They've wanted to be here every single race, they've been nothing but supportive. I control it and I decided not to have them at every race because I wanted to be on my own at some races," said the Briton.

"For the future I'll have them at every race," Hamilton announced.
