Good news story for Williams, I always thought he was a fairly good driver and what he did with the Brawn was amazing!

Hamilton couldn't score points in that car, but glad to see old Jenson back.

Sir Lewis scored points and wins in the MP4-24. A car pronounced unacceptable by Martin Whitmarsh.

I hope he improves morale at the team.

Journeyman driver. 1 win before the Brawn miracle. Without Brawn he'd be a footnote in Formula One.

This quote from Horner proves that he is a bigger buffoon than I thought. He must be very fit mentally from the gymnastics required to ignore the dismal performance by Verstappen in Turkey.

Turkey:

Chokes on getting Pole. Check
Cries by a dumpster like a baby. Check.
Spins more than a spinning top. Check.

Best driver in the world. HA

Turkey my friend ?
HAM took the victory . I'm completely agreed with that !

But how ?

I really wonder why no one noticed HAM's walk in the park ..
He lost it completely there !
As you can see I drew a little circle in a circle . The little circle on the right shows actually "a pole" my friend , only 1 meter away from HAM's sliding car !
In other words : HAM had all the luck of the world on his side in Turkey , because his car was not damaged ..
Otherwise his race was already over in lap 1 !

44 in action ...
