Lewis Hamilton racing in Bahrain

Lewis Hamilton had a fantastic race in Bahrain finishing in 4th position.

As predicted, Lewis had a great run-up at the start of the race and even briefly managing to get into second position. Hamilton did very well throughout the race to hang on to the Toyota and Red Bull cars, with help of the KERS system. It looks like McLaren are getting it together and there are certain visible improvements. Lets hope they can get more updates before the race in Barcelona and throughout the season.

    Some seem to think KERS got Lewis that overtake on Vettel at the start, and not that he simply skinned the over-cautious Vettel on the brakes.
