Court hearing set for 24 August in Melbourne
Lewis Hamilton has been charged with intentionally losing control of a vehicle following a driving incident earlier this year.
The Formula 1 star, 25, was pulled over by police in Australia on 26 March after performing a burnout – spinning a car to leave tyre marks – on a public road.
A hearing is now due to take place on 24 August at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, reports the BBC.
It is unclear if Lewis – whose Mercedes was impounded after the incident – will attend because the Belgium Grand Prix is just days later.
He has already said sorry for his actions.
‘I was driving in an over-exuberant manner and, as a result, was stopped by the police,’ said Lewis.
‘What I did was silly, and I want to apologise for it.’
