Formula 1 Orders Lewis Hamilton To Take Down Social Media Video Clip

Mercedes Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton was ordered to "take down an on-board video clip from social media because it broke guidelines" set by F1's new owner, Liberty Media, according to Jonathan McEvoy of the London DAILY MAIL.

Liberty has "encouraged drivers to reach out to fans by posting behind-the-scenes selfies and videos online, with Hamilton one of the keenest to comply."

But footage of his pole lap in China nine days ago was "deemed unacceptable by Liberty because on-track action is the preserve of official broadcasters."

Liberty representatives spoke to Mercedes and members of Hamilton's personal management team to "ask they remove it from his Instagram account." Hamilton "immediately agreed to the request" DAILY MAIL
