Kubica is fortunate he didn't get hit at same time *at least Hamilton chose to swerve left*.
Lewis (and Kubica) are the 2 young stars on the F1 circuit, but young Hamilton needs to calm down and start thinking. This lack of thinking clearly cost him the championship at the end of the 2007 season *where he had 3 or 4 different opportunities to secure the points necessary to win*.
hmmmm, I wonder if he determined while in the skid to hit the ferrari and not the bmw??? Ya know, to take the competition out with him...
