Lewis Hamilton is on Fire!


That is not usually a good thing in Formula 1 of course but Lewis Hamilton has just scored his second Formula 1 victory at Indianapolis.

The victory extends his lead over Spain's Fernando Alonso at the top of the drivers' championship table. Hamilton held off a spirited overtaking move from Alonso at Turn One on lap 39 but managed to push his team-mate wide. The Ferraris of Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen took third and fourth place.

Hamilton's astonishing rookie year continues. Can a championship win in his debut year be a real prospect now? There are ten races still to go and a lot can happen but it must no be a real possibility.

I'm from Indiana. I know nothing about about the Indy 500/NASCAR/Grand Prix.......none of it. Except that they sell a lot of beer and have hot women draped over their vehicles for pictures.
