Masterful Hamilton

2nd round of the 2007 season and McLaren pull off a masterful 1-2 result, what a fantastic result considering the previous dominance of Ferrari! Congratulations to Alonso for running away and holding enough of a lead to maintain the number one spot, but it has to be said that Hamilton was driver of the day. He had a heavier fuel load and yet still qualified fourth on the grid, and managed to sneak past both Ferraris on the first couple of corners, and then hold them up, and it was that that let Alonso romp off. As a rookie, to hold off Massa and force him to make mistakes, and even better hold off a surging Raikkonen towards the end of the race was impressive. I am in no doubt that Hamilton will achieve a win this season, but could it be a lot closer than expected?

Alonso, Hamilton and team
