Remember When- Canadian GP

(Quoted from Formula 1 Blog)

The 2007 Canadian Grand Prix will be best remembered for several reasons. Firstly, Lewis Hamilton scored his maiden victory just six races into his F1 career.


Another memorable moment was Takuma Sato’s overtake on Fernando Alonso in the closing stages to finish sixth for backmarkers Super Aguri. It was also the race in which Robert Kubica survived one of the biggest crashes in the sport’s recent history.


The race had only just restarted when Kubica tangled with Jarno Trulli on the run to turn 10. His car veered off to the right and was launched into the air by a bump. He collided heavily with the inside wall twice before rolling across the circuit, with the car eventually coming to rest on its side.


Fortunately Kubica escaped with only a concussion and a sprained ankle. The safety car was deployed once again and stayed out for six laps before releasing the field. Hamilton soon eked out a sizeable advantage, as his team-mate and Rosberg served their penalties. Anthony Davidson was briefly up to third for Super Aguri before an unscheduled pit stop, after he hit a groundhog, dropped him to 17th.


It was a truly dominant display from McLaren’s young rookie to score his first F1 win in only his sixth race in the sport. Heidfeld impressed in second, finishing four seconds behind Hamilton, with Wurz climbing from 19th on the grid to the final podium spot after using a one-stop strategy.
