Lewis Hamilton appeared to hint at a conspiracy theory within his Mercedes Formula 1 team after his engine blew up during the Malaysian Grand Prix.

The Brit was comfortably leading the race after earning pole position in qualifying, when his engine died with 15 laps remaining. Smoke could be seen billowing from the back of his car as flames erupted from the engine bay.
