Hamilton not punished for motorbike video

Lewis Hamilton will not face any punishment from police after footage emerged online appearing to show the Formula One world champion filming himself while driving a motorbike in Auckland.

The Mercedes driver visited New Zealand before turning his attention to starting the defence of his world title at the Australian Grand Prix this week.

Police were alerted to a video of Hamilton seemingly taking footage while riding a Harley Davidson, which is against the law in New Zealand.
