Lewis Hamilton takes Usain Bolt for a spin

BUDDIES: Usain Bolt and Lewis Hamilton

LEWIS HAMILTON took Usain Bolt for a drive around the Circuit of the Americas.

During the pre-race stunt, in a lime-green Mercedes AMG road car ,Hamilton said: ‘I was on the limit. We nearly crashed several times. I wasn’t looking where I was going. Don’t do that at home.

‘He may be the fastest dude in the world, but I thought I would scare him. He had to retire before risking doing that with me, but it’s an honour to have him here.’

In a video of the incident, posted to Bolt's official Instagram, the eight-time Olympic champion screamed: 'I wasn't ready. You tried to kill me. I made it, but you tried to kill me.'

Hamilton completed a couple of laps with Bolt on a day the sport’s new owners, Liberty Media, tried to put the Super Bowl into Formula One.
