F1 » Hamilton: Last lap as close as it's ever going to get!


Lewis Hamilton: In the final corner I stayed on the inside and braked as hard as I could. Fortunately, we both got around the corner in one piece and I just pipped him at the finish. The support I had when I crossed the line was as if I'd won the race – so I want to say a huge thank-you to everyone.

I'm not a fan of his to say the least, but he did make the best of that race. The car clearly worked quite well in the damp conditions, but not in the dry.

About the incident, I don't really think it was that bad. Massa left him enough room though, and if Schumi got a penalty for that error then surely Hamilton should've had one too. Even though a case could also be made for neither of them to have gotten a penalty.

Even so, inconsistency by the stewards is annoying.

hamilton had the inside line and massa was trying to pass. he was trying to brake hard to get into the corner and massa gave him the right amount of room. whats with the bashing? it was a racing incident that did get very close. are we not allowed to touch cars any more? it was ambitious and last minute by massa.

Hamilton was on the inside defending, Massa tried to go round the outside... Contact was inevitable on that one, at least they both finished.

No penalty for Hamilton.. This is racing, not "follow you sir" especially on the last lap....

Why are people obsessed with giving drivers penalties, dont we want them to overtake? At this rate they won't bother trying and it will go back to being a snore fest...
