Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton had his personal car impounded for reckless driving just hours after setting the fastest practice time for the Australian Grand Prix on Friday. Hamilton had topped McLaren teammate Jenson Button in practice, but then police caught up with his Mercedes after he performed a "burnout with smoking tires and a fishtail" in front of a Victoria Police van. "What I did was silly, and I want to apologize for it," Hamilton said later. He was to be charged with improper use of a vehicle.
