Hamilton Second in Turkey with McLaren Strategy

May 11th, 2008

An interesting Formula 1 race in Turkey today. Lewis Hamilton started from the clean side on the second row of the grid, unlike Kimi Raikkonen, who lost a few places starting from the dirty side.

Super Lewis Hamilton overtaking maneuver on Felipe Massa during the race, giving Lewis some race leading laps to show his true racing speed on his 3-stop strategy.

The next race is in two weeks, in Monaco – the race of the year! I can’t wait! šŸ™‚
