all the armchair nay-sayers said mclaren got it wrong starting lewis on the option tyre... well the young man drove a fantastic race today, made the most ot his strategy, passed franco horseface in the process and took the chequered flag to win. well deserved victory that the haters can't take away from him. well done lewis, jenson and mclaren. lets hope the racing is this close for the rest of the season.
