2008 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal

Last year’s Canadian Grand Prix included Felipe Massa and Giancarlo Fisichella getting black flagged, Lewis Hamilton winning his first race and Robert Kubica in a spectacular crash. The 2008 race was completely different. Massa finished the race… in fifth place, Lewis Hamilton’s stock plummeted and going from zero-to-hero Robert Kubica notched up the first win for himself and BMW-Sauber F1. As a result, Kubica vaults to the top of the drivers standings and puts BMW-Sauber into second place of the Constructors Championship. Oh, and quick-Nick Heidfeld finished second, with old man David Coulthard finishing on the last step of the podium.

While the win couldn’t have gone to a more deserving driver, Robert has to owe the victory to his new best friend Lewis Hamilton. Because the McLaren sophomore ran into the back of Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari in the pit lane, he knocked the number one and two drivers from the race, allowing Kubica to basically run away with the race. After review, the FIA penalized the McLaren driver 10 grid spots for the upcoming French Grand Prix. We’ll see what Magny-Cours has in store.
