Race Car Driver Forgets That He Switched Teams, Pulls into Wrong Pit Stop

British race car driver Lewis Hamilton worked for the McLaren team for several years, but he recently joined the Mercedes team. In the rush of the recent Malaysian Grand Prix, without thinking, he pulled into the pit box run by his former teammates:

"I don't know how that happened. The teams look so similar. I have been stopping in that pit box for years.

"[It's] an easy mistake and hopefully one I won't make again."

Hamilton soon realised his mistake and drove further along to his new Mercedes team pit box.
