Lewis Hamilton: Same questions from media for the last 10 years

A bored Lewis Hamilton took aim at the media for their line of questioning during Friday's Mercedes' press call in Stuttgart.

Hamilton appeared alongside team-mate Nico Rosberg and his boss Toto Wolff for a Q&A session ahead of the new Formula One season.

The world champion, who appeared distracted throughout the press conference, recorded a short video of the assembled media.

Hamilton then posted the video to his Snapchat account. "Same questions for the last 10 years, zzzz," wrote the 31-year-old, who has a huge following across social media.

During the Q&A, Hamilton was asked about his rivalry with Rosberg, his thoughts on pre-season testing as well as his outlook on the new campaign which gets under way in Melbourne next Sunday.

Hamilton will start the season as the favourite to become the first British driver to win four championships.

His Mercedes team have dominated the sport for the past two seasons, and they will be the front-runners once more in 2016.

"The car was fantastic and the team have done an incredible job," Hamilton said.

"We spoke to the team (on Thursday) to congratulate them on their achievement up until now."

Hamilton, who has appeared at a number of A-List parties over the winter, added: "My outside life matches the Formula One life now.

"F1 is awesome and when you go home and just doing unexciting things, it does not match up to the excitement of F1.

"But now outside my life is just as exciting at the track, which is awesome.

"I have been racing for a long time and always managed to get myself in gear and I am fit and ready to go. I just do me. I do the same thing I always do."
