Lewis Hamilton leading the F1 World Standings

Well ok, he is actually in a three-way tie with Alonso and Raikkonen, but still it’s news that has surprised the public, but not those in the F1 community.  Many knew he had the skill, but didn’t expect McLaren to have the car to go with it.

No doubt the bubble has to burst soon, but still, he shows a lot of promise for the future and deserves all the praise that will be afforded to him when he and the rest of his team arrive back after 7 weeks ‘on the road’.

 

A British driver leasing the World standings? Surely not…
