June 10, 2007
Lewis Hamilton’s first F1 win was almost overshadowed by the incredible action elsewhere on the track. Kubica is apparently fine after a horror crash, and the safety car was called out four times. One driver even managed to crash under the safety car…
But Hamilton’s win won’t be forgotten. From his lightning quick qualifying lap to his superb composure under almost stop-go conditions in the race, he was brilliant.
After a third place, four seconds and his first win, it’s no exaggeration to say that Hamilton has a shot at being the British Schumacher. Button was talked up in his first season as being a future Champion, but Hamilton is in another league altogther.
He’s currently 1/4 favourite to win BBC Sports Personality of the Year. He could retire from every race remaining this season and still be the most credible contender for that prize.
