Hamilton Spanish Grand Prix Podium Finish

Sunday, April 27th, 2008

Well done Lewis Hamilton, who managed to secure a predicted and well deserved podium position.

Hamilton who is second in the current F1 world championship has 20 points and is losing more points to Kimi Raikkonen who now has 29 points, leading the championship. The next races will be crucial for Lewis who can’t afford to loose touch with Kimi who’s leading by 9 points, that’s almost a race win for Hamilton and a DNF for Kimi away. Well, Formula 1 in 2008 is certainly looking to be an interesting one, I can’t wait for the next race 🙂

Lewis Starts 5th in Barcelona

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Team seemed to have some difficulty keeping up with the top runners Ferrari. Renault’s Fernando Alonso also surprised with starting second on the grid. Trulli and Webber also did well to get into the top 8.

It should be an interesting F1 race in Spain, hopefully McLaren have a good strategy to make the best of their current capabilities, it seems Alonso might be on a very light fuel strategy and we’ll have to see Kubica’s racing pace on Sunday, so I think the Hamilton will probably have a good chance for the podium, but we’ll have to see. 🙂

Bahrain: One Race Lewis Might Want To Forget

Sunday, April 6th, 2008

Okay, well it seems the Bahrain Formula 1 race wasn’t to be the best for our man Lewis Hamilton who could definitely use the points as he’s slipped down to 4th in the Formula 1 World Championship with 14 points, being 5 points behind F1 Championship Leader Kimi Raikkonen.

Things should hopefully be “back to normal” at the next Formula 1 race in Barcelona, Spain on the 27th April 2008. The McLaren Mercedes racing car would have been developed more by then and should hopefully be more competitive with BMW and Ferrari.

Hamilton Starts Third In Bahrain

Saturday, April 5th, 2008

British Formula 1 racing sensation will start the Bahrain Grand Prix in 3rd position behind BMW’s Robert Kubica’s first pole position and Ferrari’s Felipe Massa. The Ferrari racing driver was pretty much dominating the racing weekend so far be setting lap-times of nearly a second faster.

The race should be very entertaining and hopefully Hamilton can create some spectacular overtaking maneuver’s in the first few corners of the race. But let’s not count out Kimi Raikonnen who should never be underestimated, he might have had a little trouble in qualifying but the Ice Man can really turn the heat on…
