Lewis Hamilton wins the 2008 Formula 1 Championship!
In what can only be described as a nerve wracking race at the Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix yesterday, Lewis Hamilton won the 2008 World Championship. At 23 years old, Lewis is also the youngest Formula 1 Champion in history. He won the championship almost unbelievably in the last 2 corners of the last lap of the race by overtaking Toyota’s Tim Glock to secure 5th place which was all he needed to grasp the Championship from race day winner Ferrari’s Felipe Massa. The emotions, tension, disappointment, drama and exhilaration we’re all there in the nail biter of a finale to the 2008 season! Both Felipe and Lewis did all that was required and at the end of the day, fate handed Lewis a most fitting reward! Congratulations to both Lewis and Felipe who both had a brilliant season and showed the new winning faces of Formula 1.
