Last week’s Canadian Grand Prix was a study in tire management, overtaking finesse and race strategy. The finish saw the first podium filled with three world champions — Hamilton, Button and Alonso — since 1991. And Lewis Hamilton’s impressive victory foreshadows a tight championship battle for the remainder of the 2010 season, as the Red Bull domination, in qualifying and race trim, over the first seven races seems to have evaporated.
Lewis called the race the most difficult, and rewarding, of his career. Not a bad summary.
This was McLaren’s second one-two in as many races and suddenly a world championship that only two races ago looked in danger of becoming a Red Bull benefit is fizzing with competition and uncertainties.
