EUROPEAN GRAND PRIX-NURBURGRING

The European Grand Prix 2007 was an action packed race.The action started on Saturday when Lewis Hamilton faced a high speed crash in Q3 with just over 5 minutes left in the session during his first flying lap.He didn't face any damage due to the crash and started the race at 10th position.Kimi Raikkonen qualified at Pole Position followed by Alonso and Massa.Have a look at Hamilton's crash-

The race had a dramatic start with a few drivers spinning off the wet track.The safety car was sent to the track.As a result of it,the drivers had completed just 7/60 laps in 35 minutes.The race lasted 2 hours and 6 minutes.I wonder why?A formula 1 race is supposed to end in two hours.Anyways the race was a rain affected one.Kimi Raikkonen had a mechanical failure which ended his race.Lewis Hamilton struggled at the tail end of the pack.He had a tough time overtaking cars and controlling himself.For the first time in 10 races Lewis Hamilton could not manage a podium finish.

Felipe Massa was the leader of the race for a long time followed by Fernando Alonso.With 11 laps remaining,rain was predicted and it did rain.On the 65th lap Alonso overtook Felipe Massa to get the race lead.The McLaren was faster than the Ferrari in wet conditions.

At the end of the day we had an undeserving Fernando Alonso on the top step of the podium beside Massa and Mark Webber.13 cars managed to finish the race which was a very unfair race for Massa.

I'm eager to know why the race wasn't ended in 2 hours.Had the race ended in two hours,I would have been writing a completely different post and someone who deserved to win would have won the race.
