'Hamilton meeting' played down at Suzuka

Talk of a special meeting this weekend to discuss Lewis Hamilton's aggressive driving in 2011 was played down in the Suzuka paddock on Thursday.

Multiple reports had said the drivers' meeting with Charlie Whiting would go ahead, but Grand Prix Drivers' Association president Rubens Barrichello and his countryman Felipe Massa - at the centre of the storm in Singapore two weeks ago - indicated it would be business as usual in Japan.
