Lewis Hamilton manages to finish in
4th 3rd place after starting from 18th in Melbourne, Australia.
What an incredible weekend this has been for Lewis Hamilton. After qualifying in 15th position and then being put to the back of the grid because of a gearbox change – it has to be said that this really is a good result at this point in time.
Yes, it’s true that the race was not won by Lewis and yes, McLaren doesn’t seem to be super-competitive at the moment. Unlike Brawn-GP (formerly Honda), who won the race, McLaren hasn’t been concentrating on the 2009 car for as long as they put most of their efforts into the 2008 car, which won the Formula 1 world championship in 2008.
