OMG - Lewis Hamilton Won The 2008 Formula One By Just One Point


The timing couldn't be worst for Felipe Massa's fan as they have just started celebrating Massa's victory in the Brazilian Grand Prix and at the same time the F1 championship.

The euphoria couldn't have lasted more than 20 seconds. Lewis Hamilton was about to lose the championship after dropping to the 6th position. Then at the last corner just before the checker flag Timo Glock ran out of fuel (a 2 stop gamble) and Lewis Hamilton took the 5th spot.

* It wasn't the fuel but Toyota’s decision not to pit for wet tyres when a late shower arrived. Timo Glock rapidly became easy prey for both Hamilton and Vettel.

I feel bad for Massa as his expression at the podium does not look like someone who had won the race. Ironically Lewis Hamilton lost the F1 championship a year ago here in Interlagos to Kimi Raikkonen by exactly one point.

I'm glad I stayed up to watched this race. It is the best race of the whole season.
