F1 » Hamilton's the lucky seventh winner of 2012

Lewis Hamilton played a blinder to win the Canadian Grand Prix, despite McLaren misreading the strategy of their rivals. Fortunately, Red Bull and Ferrari got it wrong too.

For me this is a superb victory and also one of the more exciting races that I can remember.

I still do not think the Mclaren is the fastest or even second fastest car in the field - in fact unless you believe Button is a terrible driver it has to be 4th or 5th fastest. And yet here is Hamilton on the top step of the podium.

Alonso said that Hamilton was better than Vettel because the former has proved he can win in a car that is good enough for 7th or 8th. Pretty strong evidence here.

Alonso said that Ferrari had to go for a one stop as Lewis was to quick. Anyway Lewis as told BBC that Alonso is the best driver on the track it seems there is sincere and mutual respect between the two drivers.

What happened to tyre management? Burning 3 sets before lap 37 (knowing that he burnt 3 sets of intermediates tires in Seipang)

He is now blaming the car?

HRT Whats the point of them showing up in F1, I could remember the Spanish GP from the start Alonso was half between turn 2 and 3 and the HRT hasnt got to turn one.

@ Dangerous Dave

Same can be said for Alonso.
Actually, the same arguments would prove Alonso is an even better rider, if compared with "car potential as determined by means of teammates performance".
