Lewis Starts 5th in BarcelonaApril 26th, 2008
The Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Team seemed to have some difficulty keeping up with the top runners Ferrari. Renault’s Fernando Alonso also surprised with starting second on the grid. Trulli and Webber also did well to get into the top 8.
It should be an interesting F1 race in Spain, hopefully McLaren have a good strategy to make the best of their current capabilities, it seems Alonso might be on a very light fuel strategy and we’ll have to see Kubica’s racing pace on Sunday, so I think the Hamilton will probably have a good chance for the podium, but we’ll have to see.
