Japanese GP: Lewis loses it

Lewis Hamilton must have felt like it was a case of history repeating as he sat in his car, facing the wrong way on the road as the entire F1 field stormed past him, as, like last year, he threw away what looked like another step towards the championship title.

The frustration was palpable as he span his wheels up to turn himself around, only to have to let off the throttle when he saw the size of the pack heading his way.

It all looked like the perfect set-up this morning for Hamilton, but again his hot headed attitude got the better of him going into turn one after he tried to undo his poor start by braking late up the inside of Raikkonen.

That ultimately failed, running Kimi wide in the process, and causing a whole host of madness right down the field which lead to Lewis finding himself right behind title rival Felipe Massa.

It was then that Ferrari man’s turn to outbrake himself, going into the chicane at turn 10 on lap two. Hamilton tried one up the inside of Massa, who didn’t want to let him go there, and so bounded over the kerbs right into the side of Hamilton, spinning him round.

Lewis found himself looking at an oncoming field, and both he and Massa were soon facing possible penalties from the stewards, that materialised on lap 17 in the form of a drive-through each.

Lewis ended the race down in a pointless 12th, while Massa managed to undo some of the damage he’d done with a well considered, mature drive for a couple of points in 7th.

So the title race again looks to be going right to the wire, and Lewis again looks to be throwing away the championship like he did last year.

Yeh, can wait for Bruno Senna to make the transition to the F1 scene. Hope he can bring some ‘Class’ back to the F1 since the departure of schumi. And by class I dont mean good sportsmanship and that stuff, but more rather that sense of presence a great driver has, and eventually the dominance that goes along with it. Lets face it Lewis Lamilton hasnt got that presence and for sure he hasnt been that dominant.

Hope he can live up to the name in F1. If he doesnt however, his heritage may be his undoing when the bloody media vultures devour him for it.

IT’S MASSA’S FAULT WHY HAMILTON FINISHED A LAP DOWN BECAUSE FELIPE SPUN LEWIS’S CAR AND HAMILTON LOST A LOT OF TIME. THEN IN THE FINAL RACE MASSA WON BUT IN THE LAST TURN, HAMILTON PASSED GLOCK AND HE FINISHED FIFTH. BUT MASSA IS NOT ONE OF THE BEST F1 DRIVERS IN THE WORLD, BECAUSE IN THE FIRST TWO RACES, HE MADE A LOT OF ERRORS AND IN THE BRITISH GRAND PRIX IN SILVERSTONE IN THE WET WHEN HE SPUN FIVE TIMES AND TWO LAPS DOWN TO LEWIS AND ONE LAP DOWN TO TIMO GLOCK WHICH FINISHED P12 AND MASSA P13.
