Hamilton conquers a wet British Grand Prix at Silverstone

I take back what I mentioned about Lewis Hamilton in the previous post. Today, he produced a masterful performance to win the race, which also means that he is now joint first in the championship standings, together with Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen.

The lightning start, and the overtaking move at the 1st corner were the highlights for me, with him jumping from 4th on the grid to 2nd behind Heikki Kovalainen. After he overtook his team-mate a few laps later, he basically disappeared into the horizon, finishing the race almost a minute in front of runner-up Nick Heidfeld.
