    Formula One's new owners have aimed a thinly-veiled dig at Lewis Hamilton after Britain's triple world champion opted to swerve yesterday parade through London.

    Hamilton had been expected to lead the billing in front of his home crowd in the build-up to Sunday's British Grand Prix. But Hamilton chose to go on a holiday to Greece rather than appear in front of swathes of British supporters. "We invited teams and drivers to join us at F1 Live London and we had a fantastic response from all the teams and 19 of the drivers," a F1 spokesperson said. "It will be a great day for London's Formula One fans, seeing race cars and drivers close-up, sharing the passion for F1 ahead of the British Grand Prix."

    Hamilton's timing for the break is curious given that he described the British GP, the most important on the calender earlier this month.
