"... there is no denying that F1 has entered the Hamilton era."

Pretty heady stuff, eh? Well, I didn't write it; that line is in this article over at Planet In any case, what a day. June 10, 2007: the day that marks the first Formula One victory by a black man. And of course, it is incidentally the day that Lewis Hamilton wins his very first Formula One race. At Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, no less. In only his sixth start, no less. And with this win, storming into a reasonably significant 8-point lead in the Driver's Championship classification.

Congratulations, Lewis. And congratulations to the Vodaphone Mercedes-McLaren organization. Here's to many more first place finishes!
