What is this? Lewis Prost Hamilton leading the championship. Alain Prost would be proud to see Lewis playing the podium game. Jenson does look hot though. And is there a new player in town in Nico and the Mercs? Brilliant race, see Vetell slating his car over the radio lets see if the Vettel fanboys will give him the same stick as they did a certain driver last year.
