Bahrain GP the most memorable for Lewis Hamilton
Hamilton’s most memorable Bahrain Grand Prix: 2007

Lewis Hamilton makes history in only the third Grand Prix of his career. He qualifies second, 0.2s behind Felipe Massa, and runs the Brazilian close throughout the 57-lap race.

After making a decent getaway from the dirty side of the grid, Lewis’s chances of taking an early lead are scuppered by the deployment of the Safety Car at the end of lap one.

Thereafter he bides his time, waiting for his opportunity, and after the second round of pitstops he finds himself 7.0s behind the Brazilian. Some scorching laps late in the race see Lewis reel in the Ferrari every lap, but he runs out of time to mount a serious challenge and he finishes 2.3s behind Massa.

Still, the result sees him become the first driver in history to finish on the podium in his opening three Formula 1 races. He leaves Bahrain leading the world championship.(McLaren)
