Default Lewis Hamilton's skills - is it in his genes

urm , no

Displaying none of his son's sure touch in handling a car, Anthony Hamilton, the father of the Formula One driver Lewis, careered into a children's playground yesterday 200 metres from his home.

A witness said that Mr Hamilton tried in vain to reverse the high-performance Porsche, right, back on to the 30mph road near Tewin, Hertfordshire, but succeeded only in raising dirt and his blood pressure.

I read about it on Autoblog. They said that the car did not belong to Lewis or his dad.
