Those of you who were around and witnessed it remember how it was Ayrton Senna's specialty to go out at the last minute and just put the hammer down to completely demolish his opposition. Today in Canada Lewis Hamilton delivered a lap deserving of the yellow helmet he wears. It was a spectacular effort to earn the first pole of the season for a car other than a RedBull.
There is one asterisk, the two RedBulls ran q3 and hence will start the race on the preferred hard tire. If there is no early safety car that might prove the winning move for super best friends Vettel and Webber.
I apologize for the text only post, I'm travelling and in a locale with limited
online access at the moment. Better on Sunday I hope. Enjoy the race.
