What a breathtaking performance from Lewis Hamilton at the British Grand Prix on Sunday. The reigning world champion (Raikkonen) and a two-time world champion (Alonso) on the same track, along with a guy who used to be competitive with Hamilton in the junior ranks (Kovalainen) in a supposedly identical car, who actually had pole position - and Hamilton wins with over a one minute margin? In the pouring rain?
The TV commentators noted that there are some people who dismiss Hamilton as a true potential champion. True, in Montreal he "blotted his copy book" as his country-mates would say by rear-ending Raikkonen in the pits, putting them both out.
But at Silverstone on Sunday?
Peerless. One of the most dominating wins in modern Formula One history.
And my man Robert Kubica finally made his first mistake of the season. Still love the guy. Kudos to his teammate Nick Heidfeld equaling a career best by finishing second, and for pulling off some of the best passes of the season. He'll win one of these days.
Incidentally, can anyone suggest why only English-language Formula One races like the British Grand Prix don't use their own language to describe the event? Other than that "Grand Prize Racing" sounds dumb?
It's the "Grosser Preis" of Germany, the "Gran Premio" of Italy (and Spain), etc.
