Lewis Hamilton wins his first Grand Prix.
McLaren-Mercedes' rookie driver, Lewis Hamilton has just won his first Grand Prix in career at the Canadian Grand Prix, his 6th career start and his 6th podium finish.
The race itself was nothing short of spectacular. There was many position changes during the race, two disqualifications and a huge crash by Robert Kubica who ended up with only a bruised ankle. Despite the injury, Kubica's condition could've been a lot worse. His car totally desintegrated after hitting a cement wall at full speed.
Among others, Heikki Kovalainen who started 22nd, managed to finish the race in 4th position. Then with 2 laps to go, Takuma Sato on board of a Super Aguri managed to overtake the slightly damaged McLaren-Mercedes driven by the double world champion Fernando Alonso who finished the race in 7th place.
