I’m not a huge fan of F1, where the racing is more of a procession (and with the number of safety car breaks, today was no exception), and it’s more a case of technology and timing pit stops than driving ability.
However, you can’t knock Lewis Hamilton, who has won his first race today. He’s now also leading the championship, following a run of 5 podium finishes in his previous 5 races. I think this must be the best ever start for a driver in their first season, at least within living memory, and what is more he seems like a really nice, down to earth bloke.
What better example can we have for young Britons than a mixed race kid flying the flag for us, beating the rest of the world and doing it with style. Good for you, Lewis.
