London:

British motor racing great Sir Stirling Moss has added his voice to the chorus of criticism surrounding 2008 world champion Lewis Hamilton saying his compatriot's recent on-track conduct has been "quite wrong".

Hamilton was involved in collisions with McLaren team-mate Jenson Button and Red Bull's Australian driver Mark Webber during Sunday's rain-affected Canadian Grand Prix.

"In a modern racing car, as long as the driver is stuck inside it, he is as safe as houses," Moss told ITV's London Tonight on Monday.

"(But) I think his conduct was quite wrong. He certainly should not drive the way he is and he sets a bad example, particularly for a man who is such a fantastic driver."
