McLaren Mercedes Formula One in Turkey

On Saturday Heikki Kovalainen and Lewis Hamilton qualified second and third respectively. Cool temperatures in Istanbul during the race weekend made for difficult tire decisions for all of the teams. As a result of this Lewis switched to a less conventional 3 stop strategy. With his lower fuel load he was able to make up most of the time lost in his extra stop to finish second between the Ferraris. This was one of the best races this season. I can’t wait for Monaco in two weeks.
