Lewis Hamilton – World Champion

He had to finish 5th, he qualified 4th, he finished 5th…just!

What a way to end a Grand Prix season – the title was Hamilton’s and then it seemed to slip away as Vettel passed him and Glock didn’t pit – had it all gone wrong, again? As Hamilton’s many fans watched on in dismay the impossible (or not as it would seem) happened as Hamilton passed a very slow Glock to come in 5th and claim the World Championship. Ahead of him, and almost an afterthought, Masa finished his season with the victory in Sao Paulo and 2nd place in the Driver’s Championship.

Hamilton deserved to win, Massa deserved to win – we are guaranteed one heck of a season in 2009, especially with the improvements Renault have made and Alonso behind the wheel of that much improved car.

Congratulations Lewis Hamilton, 2008 Formula 1 World Champion, the youngest ever.
