Lewis Hamilton Qualifies 9th in ChinaApril 18th, 2009
Lewis Hamilton qualifies in 9th position for the Chinese F1 race.
McLaren’s previously steady progress away from the lower midfield seems to have been accelerated by its own interim diffuser and new front wing as Lewis Hamilton made the pole shoot-out for the first time in 2009, eventually claiming ninth.
It looks likely that it will rain in Shanghai, China which will give Lewis a good chance to move through the field.
