Lewis Hamilton Finishes 3rd In Singapore

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

Wow! What a race. Nobody would have predicted this outcome – especially since none neither of the front runners, Massa and Hamilton, won.

Lewis did well to get onto the podium again and extending his F1 world championship lead by 6 points.

I’ve got a feeling that this is probably going to be one of the best and most spectacular races in 2008. Lewis Hamilton starts in p2 behind Felipe Massa and in front of Kimi Raikkonen. Sebastian Vettel seems to be continuing his good form who qualified in 7th position.

Hamilton is only 1 point ahead of fellow F1 championship contender and fellow front row starter Felipe Massa. This is most probably one of the defining moments for the 2008 Formula 1 world championship.

The fact that the race is being held at night is simply awesome. Previously there were a few voices of pessimism about a night race but they’ve since disappeared. The racing drivers love it, the media loves it and everybody watching it thinks that it’s fantastic.

I can’t wait for the race tomorrow. I wish I was there but the F1 race in Singapore is a sold out event.

Good luck Lewis!

Lewis Hamilton 7th In Monza

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

The Italian Grand Prix in Monza was most definitely one of the best races of the season so far.

Lewis Hamilton’s race was purely a damage limitation exercise today and Lewis succeeded as he only lost 1 point to Filipe Massa, even though he started 15th on the grid.

Overall the Italian race was very good and eventful with lots of overtaking and just good racing. The race started behind the safety car as it was raining quite heavily at the beginning but dried out near the end of the race making it possible to use intermediate tyres.

An awesome race and congratulations to Sebastian Vettel who had a perfect weekend and won the Italian Grand Prix. He’s the youngest ever F1 race winner


Lewis Hamilton Starts 15th In Monza

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

Lewis Hamilton will start the Italian Grand Prix in Monza from 15th position.

The previous worst qualifying in 2008 for Lewis was 5th position. Today’s wet and tricky conditions were very difficult to master as it kepts starting and stopping to rain.

In the second qualifying session Lewis went out with intermediates at first which didn’t work as it started raining again and had to come back to the pit to change to full-wets.

The starting grid in Monza is pretty mixed up with Kimi starting in 14th position and Massa from 6th.

Congratulations to Sebastian Vettel who is the youngest ever driver to get into pole position.


Incredible Lewis & Kimi Video Battling In Spa

Monday, September 8th, 2008

This video is incredible! It shows a driver’s perspective of the on-track battle between Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen near the end of the Belgian Grand Prix.

It clearly shows that Lewis dropped behind Kimi after he cut the corner – personally I would have thought that this would be sufficient. Anyway, enjoy this video clip of the best and most exciting racing drivers in the world!

Updates below

Lewis Hamilton Wins Spectacular Belgian Grand Prix. WOW!! What an exciting ending at the Spa Grand Prix.

Lewis started from pole and lead the race for a lap or two before Kimi manage to take the lead at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium.Hamilton Wins at Spa

Kimi was leading most of the race but after the final stop the Finn didn’t look too comfortable on the hard-compound tyre and Hamilton was catching up. Then in the last few laps it started to rain and get pretty slippery and the cars were sliding around all over the place.

Then Lewis cought Kimi up and tried to overtake but was blocked on the first attempt. After a few more corners Lewis managed to get ahead but then went wide and Kimi overtook Hamilton again. Kimi then took the lead again but then spunn off in to the wall giving Hamilton the lead again.

UK visitors will be able to watch the highlights here.
