Lewis Starts 3rd in TurkeyMay 10th, 2008
Lewis Hamilton managed to start from third position at the Istanbul Circuit in Turkey despite his McLaren Formula 1 car not handling well in some corners where the back seemed to slide out a few times.
Kimi Raikkonen seemed to have a few problems with his Ferrari as well causing him to start from 4th position, next to Lewis.
It should be an interesting race which has been brought forward in the calendar from mid-summer. This is causing some difficulties for the teams as the tyre temperatures are not very high, causing less grip for the drivers.
