Apparently Lewis Hamilton is the first F1 driver to get two podium places from his first two races since Peter Arundell did so in 1964. Having taken third place in the Australian GP, Hamilton was runner up in yesterday's Malaysian GP. Although Arundell's career did not reach match his early promise, Hamilton looks as he has all the makings of a champion.
Meanwhile Dagenham & Redbridge won the Nationwide Conference on Saturday and thus promotion to the Football League. I really hope they have success next year.
West Ham beat Arsenal 1-0 and are now giving us a faint hope that they will avoid relegation. Hammers fans the world over are offering votives to all known deities as I write. Me, I might make an offering to Blind Io in the hope that they remain a premiership side next season!
