Hamilton on Pole in ShanghaiOctober 18th, 2008
Lewis Hamilton is in pole position in Shanghai, China. Lewis has been fast all weekend and left his competitors and critics behind him.
It’s Hamilton’s chance to finally wrap up his first Formula 1 world championship. He needs to make 6 points more than championship rival Felipe Massa. BMW’s Kubica had an outside chance which now seems even more unlikely as he’s starting down in 11th position.
This is going to be the perfect race to win the championship as it was lost in China last year by the unfortunate Shanghai pit lane incident last year. But now Lewis is on fire with a great pole and Massa a row back he’s got a good chance tomorrow.
