And you thought the sight of just six cars starting the 2005 United States Grand Prix was bizarre…
At 15:35, Lewis Hamilton lined up on pole position for a standing start on what was officially lap four of the Hungarian Grand Prix, and the only other car on the grid was the medical car. And he wasn’t going to win.
That’s because one hour earlier, rain had started falling as the cars made their way onto the grid and by the time the lights went out for the first time it was a full wet track with everyone on intermediates for the first time this weekend. And it caught two out massively.
