The Man in the "News" talks
Interview of Lewis Hamilton, who is in news, after his mentors from team Mclaren have said subject to his form, it is possible for him to partner Fernando Alonso in Mclaren for 2007 season. If only media create less hype and leave the kid alone. This is just a first GP2 win for him, and it is yet to be seen whether or not he annihilates his competition like Nico Rosberg did in his GP2 season last year, something that caught eye of Sir Frank Williams.
Some facts we can’t overlook before we go overboard with Hamilton story:
  • Lewis should remember having eye for Talent , and giving young blood a chance is penchant of Frank Williams and Flavio Briatore, Ron Dennis has traditionally preferred to do “Off the shelf” shopping.

  • And till last weekend the deal between Mclaren and Lewis Hamilton was that Mclaren Bosses would “Buy” Lewis a race seat with “smaller” team to get him acclimatize with rigors of F1 ,and then he can graduate with their team

JV penalized – What about Schumi
Something from last weekend race, Race coverage showed clearly Villeneuve was 4-5 car lengths ahead of Fisichella, as such couldn’t have affected his car speed , unless of course Fisi gets distracted seeing other car on track ( well that’s the challenge for all the drivers in current qualifying format). This reminds me of something similar that had happened at Imola qualifier, the Culprit Michael Schumacher and victim Toyota driver Jarno Trulli whose qualifying lap was hampered by out lap of Schumi. But the local stewards conveniently overlooked this incident. Trulli had promised to avenge that incident, he didn’t get a chance in Nürbürgring (thanks to early retirement), will he do it and whenever he does that how will he be treated by the race authorities ??

Interesting Quote:
"Alain will do everything in his power to win, he doesn't like getting beaten by anyone and least of all me." Nigel Mansell on Alain Prost
