Lewis Hamilton takes off Mumbai on quick spin, races F1 car across street

Lewis Hamilton scorched the streets of Mumbai on Sunday. The F1 star was in the city to participate in an event organized by a mobile phone company titled 'Vodafone Speed Fest'.

Mumbai experienced its first street racing event on Sunday evening and thousands of fans arrived to witness Hamilton display his skills. They were not disappointed as as he sped down the track.

As Hamilton raced down the streets of the city's swanky new commercial hub - Bandra-Kurla Complex - the screaming fans greeted the star with a lot of enthusiasm. The slight drizzle towards the start of the event failed to dampen spirits. Hamilton did multiple laps with screaming fans egging him on.

The race was flagged off by Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan in the presence of Public Works Department and Tourism Minister Chhagan Bhujbal, among other dignitaries.

Just a week ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix night race, Hamilton showcased his skills as he drove his MP4-27 Vodafone McLaren Mercedes car, leaving the audience spellbound.

As India prepares for another season of F1 action, Mumbai will not forget this amazing experience in a rush.

It was last September (notice, just a month ago from Formula 1 in India) when he was in Bangalore and showcased his skills, similar to what he did this year too. Is this a promotion or a support event ? Click here to view videos, interviews and details of his last event in Bangalore.
