The opportunity is knocking.

The Istanbul circuit acted as an equalizer for the championship as Ferrari dominated the Turkish Grand Prix from start to finish.

Felipe Massa has won his 3rd race of the season while his teammate Kimi Raikkonen finished in second place.

The major event of the race happened with only 16 laps to go as Lewis Hamilton's front right tire litterally exploded as he was driving in 3rd place. The extra pit stop to replace his damaged tire costed Hamilton 2 spots on the track. This event is for sure a blow for Hamilton's confidence but the team at least managed to avoid the total catastrophy.

Fernando Alonso
also took advantage of Hamilton's tire misadventure as he managed after a very bad start to finish on the podium in 3rd place. Alonso is now only 5 points away from Lewis Hamilton on top of the drivers championship.

Ferrari also closed the gap to only 11 points with McLaren-Mercedes with this perfect weekend. Now with just 5 races to go to the 2007 season, it is anybody's title. We haven't seen such an exciting championship in years.

Next stop: Monza, Italy.
