What an unforgettable race. Hamilton hammed it, good, riding roughshod over the Iceman at the pitlane exit ignoring that flashing red light, which normally means STOP! Well, he took out the competition for sure and opened up the championship a bit wider. Kubica now leads, giving Mario Theissen a huge smile he hasn’t had for quite some time. What’s more, he led Heidfeld for a well deserved one-two.
What put the cherry on top for me was seeing the gentleman of the sport make it up to third, hopefully breaking his recent run of bad luck. He was quite reminiscent of years of yore and contemplative too. I hope this doesn’t mean that he’s hanging up his hat just yet. But if he does, then finishing off the career on the high note of 62 podiums ain’t bad at all.
Well done all, and commiserations to Raikkonen. Hopefully Hamilton Sr. will slap Jr. upside the head to get him to sharpen his vision somewhat for future races.
