Motor : Kubica, Hamilton in war of words

OMAYA (Japan): BMW’s Robert Kubica says Lewis Hamilton’s driving style is regarded as dangerous by his rivals, bringing a sharp response from McLaren.

Kubica ignited a paddock argument when he told a newspaper that the championship leader had drawn the ire of other drivers for his forceful overtaking manoeuvres.

Exhibit ‘A’ in the Pole’s argument was Hamilton’s drive in the Italian Grand Prix when he forced Toyota’s Timo Glock onto the grass and Red Bull’s Mark Webber up an escape road as he forced his way through the field.

“What he did was too much and dangerous,” Kubica told Bild Zeitung.

“It was a topic (in the drivers’ meetings) and most of them had a similar view.” — AP
