Hamilton wins Italian Grand Prix




Finally the Lewis Hamilton we all knew who came with a big bottle of champagne and an even a bigger smile, returned. After the unfortunate loss at the last Belgian Grand Prix due to a fateful crash triggered by Grosjean who served a one-match ban, things worked out better in the Italian Grand Prix on Saturday.

He started from pole position and went straight through to winning his third title of the season. The 27 year old, made this win the 20th of his overall career. With this win comes his chance for the world championship as he thanked his team for their support. At the moment it is Alonso who leads the charts with 179 points and Hamilton takes the second position with 142 points. Kimi Raikkonen of Finland is just one point short on 141.

Jenson Button who had won the Belgian Grand Prix just recently had to retire early on with still 20 laps to go. Sergio Perez finished second, 4.3 seconds after Hamilton and then came Fernando Alonso followed by Felipe Massa at fourth.  Force India’s Paul Di Resta came in at eight position.

“This is amazing for me and I thank my team for doing an incredible job,” said Hamilton. “It is a great day for everyone.”

Earlier in the week there were budding tidbits of him leaving McLaren for Mercedes in the next season and after this incredible win by Hamilton, those tidbits have turned into talks of persuasion for him to stay. Ron Dennis, who was formerly the team urged Hamilton to consider his options for next season very carefully as he thinks staying with McLaren will be both powerful and fruitful for him as well as the team.

There is a whole lot Hamilton has to consider before making his move to any other team. McLaren has won the last three races whereas Mercedes has finished around the sixth position in them. Mercedes last won in the Chinese Grand Prix that took place in April. The wins have given Hamilton the second position now and he now looks onto the World Championship. So taking advice or not, Hamilton well knows his next move can make or halt his career.
