Montreal mayhem

Robert KubicaThey say that the Canadian Grand Prix usually manages to throw a curve ball as far as results go, and it certainly did today.

During safety car conditions early on, Lewis Hamilton failed to see the red light at the end of the pit lane…

…until it was too late, driving into the back of his main rival, Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen.

That was the end of both their races, and left Robert Kubica in the perfect position for both his and BMW’s first Formula One victory.

BMW’s day was even better thanks to Kubica’s team mate Nick Heidfeld making for the German manufacturer’s first one-two, and RedBull were chuffed to bits with David Coulthard occupying the third step on the podium.

Timo Glock got fourth for Toyota, with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa in fifth.

But more importantly than all the drama, Kubica’s now leading the world championship, which leaves it all wide open for the rest of the season.

Job’s a good un.

So what do you think? No doubt Lewis is about to come in for some stick…

Personally, I thought Massa’s double undertake was magnificent, and was definitely my move of the race.
