GP Silverstone '08


Starting fourth,first Lewis has a look at the left,trying to go through the middle of Webber in front of him and Kovalainen on pole,but he thought better of it...just as well because Raikonen to his left got boxed in behind the two front row starters...

moving to the right he squeezed between the pit wall and Webber ,easily outdraging him towards the first corner...only Kovalainen left...

Kovalainen and Hamilton are now going side by side through the first corner,banging wheels,Heikki has a big moment,it looks like Lewis is ahead but Heikki catches his slide and won't have any of it...

Lewis Hamilton has to be content sitting in the spray of Kovalainen...visibility zero...this is just the start...more excitement will follow...
