Singapore GP: quali

So far, so good. In fact, very good. Singapore’s success story continues with a brilliant qualifying before what looked like a packed house. And they saw a mesmeric performance from Felipe Massa, almost out of the blue.

Monza GP: paddock view

Here’s a summary of paddock view points on the Lewis/Kimi incident from last weekend: Had Hamilton followed Raikkonen through the chicane in the normal way, he would not have been close enough – or, certainly, not as close as he was – when the pair crossed the start/finish line.

Brit GP: Hamilton’s win

There aren’t enough superlatives to describe the quality of Lewis Hamilton’s win. It took a typical British summer’s day – wind, showers, some sun – to give Hamilton the canvas on which to display his abundance of natural talent. The Englishman didn’t put a foot wrong.
