Lewis Hamilton Heikki Kovalainen 100th Anniversary Of The First Mercedes Grand Prix Win

At the French Grand Prix at Magny-Cours last weekend Heikki Kovalainen and Lewis Hamilton did a parade lap in the original 1908 Benz Grand Prix car to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first Mercedes Grand Prix win.

Unfortunately, they couldn’t dovetail that with a win this weekend but Heikki did fight throught to finish in 4th. Lewis finished 10th after being held back by a ten grid spot penalty for a pit lane accident in the last race and a drive through penalty for cutting a corner. Hopefully, we’ll be able to break this short string of bad luck at the next race at Silverstone!
