I don’t believe this actually was the reason for Lewis winning the title, but it was funny anyway:

BMW M1 Procar Series

July 2, 2008

Awesome video footage of the old BMW M1 Procar Series that used to be a support race during the F1 weekend. In addition to the M1 drivers, the top four F1 drivers from free practice would also race in the series. Too bad that would never happen now. 😦

In this particular clip, they are racing at Monaco.

The cars themselves are powered by a 3.4L mid-engined inline-6 motor making 277hp. They weighed just over 3100lbs. Details on the car can be found here.

The racing series will be re-incarnated for this year’s German Grand Prix at Hockenheim, but don’t expect any of the current F1 drivers to participate.

Lewis Hamilton’s Canadian GP Epic Failure

June 11, 2008

Lewis Hamilton on his qualifying attempt, prior to the race:

“What can I say? I put together a clean lap and everyone else was struggling with the track’s poor surfaces and I found a solution,” he said.

“At the end of the day if there is a problem, it is my job to find a solution and get around it as quick as possible. So I am not surprised that I have that big a gap there, because I can see other people would probably not have found it. So that is why I am on pole.”

He added: “It is one of my skills. I am able to adjust to whatever conditions I have, and that is probably why I am so strong in the wet. I feel at home, I feel comfortable. And it wasn’t tough, to be honest.”

Apparently he can’t adjust to red lights. Lewis Hamilton during the race:
