Lewis Hamilton takes the win, and with it, the championship lead by two points. Still no repeat winners this season.
Also, wow, that was the wrong call from Ferrari to keep Alonso out on those old tyres.
This list is based on the last 40+ laps of the race. Your author was asleep duing the red flag and the first few laps of the race but he’ll watch the re-air on Speed Channel later.

Hey, I’ve been thinking…There have been a lot of criticism against Lewis Hamilton because of his “mad” driving style, which refers to his bold overtakes and (maybe sometimes stupid) hunches…But I can’t help thinking that when one of our greatest drivers Ayrton Senna was racing, there was a lot of criticism against him too, because of similar reasons. And well, we all know how far Senna came and how big he is. I’m not a big fan of Lewis, but he’s a really good driver and last year he stood for a lot of entertainment…
The greatest drivers (in my opinion) is they who dare to take chances.
What do you think guys?
I agree with this for the most part.
Senna and Schumacher did many unsporting things to win titles. Senna took Alain Prost out at the first turn at Suzuka to clinch a title, Michael Schumacher of course had his legendary “chop blocks”.
Now that said, Lewis Hamilton has yet to do anything like that to win a title, and I wouldn’t compare his run-ins with Felipe Massa to any of those moments that Senna or Schumi were involved in, but I wouldn’t put it past him to win a title after being involved in a collision with his nearest rival one day.
I actually like Lewis Hamilton, too. And Kamui Kobayashi - he’s another driver that takes a lot of risks, and if he got into a top ride, it’d be entertaining as hell to watch.

I love Bamber’s style. I forgot he was still doing these!
