Nigel Mansell questions Lewis Hamilton's conduct both on and off the track, claiming the British driver should act more appropriately.

Former F1 world champion Nigel Mansell has hit out at Lewis Hamilton, questioning the British driver's conduct on and off the race track.

Hamilton has endured a tumultous season, having been involved in disputes with stewards, his own McLaren team and other drivers.

"Lewis is not mature and does not have a head on him," Mansell told F1 Racing magazine.

"I think he needs to settle himself down because the recent episode at Monaco was unneccessary and unflattering both for himself and for Formula 1.

"I was very disappointed and he's got to remember that he has been a world champion so he should act appropriately and accordingly at all times."

The next race in the Formula 1 calendar is at Nurburgring, Germany on July 24.
