Briton Lewis Hamilton (27) complained that people on the pit wall were dropping debris on his head while he was driving his McLaren to a fifth place finish in Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.

The Brit said it happened several times as he completed the 78-laps race. Hamilton said: “The guys hold the pit boards over the track and two or three slips fell out and hit me in the front of the helmet.

I was like ‘guys this is getting ridiculous’ as they kept dropping them and dropping them.”

It was a disappointing race for Hamilton who started third but lost places, notably in the pits again, to finish fifth.
