Lewis Hamilton blasted as a ‘spoiled little boy’ and a ‘whiner’ in vicious unprovoked attack by ex-F1 team manager

LEWIS HAMILTON has been slammed as a “whiner” and “spoiled little boy” by a former McLaren and Ferrari employee in a shock and unprovoked attack.

The seven-time Formula One world champion has made a disappointing start to the campaign and has been vocal about his car’s lack of pace.

Joan Villadelprat has blasted the Brit in an unprovoked blast

Hamilton called for “accountability” from Mercedes after they ignored his advice on what was needed for his motor last year.

The team’s chief Toto Wolff then even admitted after those remarks that they were going to scrap their current ‘zeropod’ design.

However, ex-F1 team manager Joan Villadelprat has now blasted Hamilton for being too outspoken in a scathing attack.

He told El Confidencial: “Hamilton is fed up and, if he doesn’t win, he’s like a spoiled little boy: you either win or you break the toys.

“He’s a whiner, you know. The tyres, the strategy, he questions everything, and he has screwed up. When you have a [teammate] who is faster than you, it is normal to be quiet and put your head under your wing.

“I think he hasn’t lost but, after seven titles… What motivates you? Well, win another. And you’re not going to risk your skin if you don’t have that car.

“What is evident is that Hamilton is not the same as his first or second championship.”

Hamilton ended up finishing behind team-mate George Russell in the Drivers’ Championship last season.


That is only the third time the legend has been behind a colleague in the final standings.

However, the 38-year-old is currently ahead of his fellow Englishman after the first three races this term.

Hamilton is still waiting to secure his first F1 win since the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
