Lewis Hamilton causes online stir after posting skiing pics

London: British F1 driver Lewis Hamilton has caused an online stir after posting photos of him skiing with his brother just days after Michael Schumacher`s shocking accident in the Alps.

Hamilton enraged Instagram users by posting his Christmas snaps of himself on the snow.

According to the Daily Star, he also uploaded a video of him on a snowmobile and his brother on a ski chair tearing down the slopes.

However, the photo posts by the 28-year-old were met with a number of abuses.

One Instagarm user said that the posts by Hamilton were very insensitive given a certain ex race driver`s current condition in hospital.

Another said that it was inconsiderate, overrated d***, `you`ll never be a great like Schumacher`.

Others slammed the 2008 F1 champion for the timing of his post but other wished him well out in the snow.

Schumacher is in a `stable condition` in a coma after hitting his head on a rock in Sunday`s disaster.
