August 24th, 2008

Lewis Hamilton finished in second position behind Ferrari’s Massa at the new European Grand Prix, the Valencia street race.

There was no safety car as many people thought that there would be. Though, Alonso only lasted a lap after somebody drove into the back of him and he lost his rear wing.

Robert Kubica did well to finish 3rd place in front of Kovalainen who finished in fourth position.

All in all most track feedback was positive and generally people were happy with the new track and facilities around.

Lewis is still leading the championship but lost two points to Filipe Massa. Hamilton’s effort was fantastic considering that he had severe neck and back problems from a trapped nerve before qualifying and it wasn’t even sure that he will be able to race.

There was an incident with Massa leaving the pit lane as the same time as another car and there is some debate about weather it was safe or not. It will be investigated after the race.
