It’s not the article that’s good, it’s the first comment.
Comment of the day
Has it become impossible to have a rational discussion about anything to do with Lewis Hamilton? Mark Hitchcock think so:
Anyone who looks at this incident without any bias can see how it differs from blocking. If any other driver did this the fuss would be minimal and people would be more sensible instead of trying to find someone to find something wrong with it.

On this day in F1
Giancarlo Fisichella scored his first F1 victory on this day in 2003. But he didn’t find out he’d won the race until several days afterwards.
The Brazilian Grand Prix had been red-flagged and ended early after Fernando Alonso crashed late in the race. The stewards originally deemed Kimi Raikkonen the winner and the McLaren driver stood on the top step of the podium.
But after checking the video of the race and the rules they realised Fisichella was the true winner, and Raikkonen handed his trophy over to the driver at the next race in Imola.
It was the final win for Eddie Jordan’s team, though Fisichella came close to winning again for them in their modern incarnation, Force India, at Spa last year.
