Let’s Hear It For The Kid

The hype around Lewis Hamilton is astonishingly annoying, but it’s almost even more frustrating that it is justified, as it makes me feel curmudgeonly for being irritated by it. Still, my 4:25 start this morning was rewarded by a thrilling grand prix and an extraordinary drive from Hamilton, who was thoroughly composed and generally very quick on a day when so many other more experienced drivers made errors. OK, he had the advantage of pole position and therefore an initial lead and some clear visibility – but also the disadvantage of being the first to go over the track at racing speeds following each safety car. But it was a remarkable performance.
