Late in today's Grand Prix of Germany, race leader Lewis Hamilton got caught behind the safety car during a yellow flag and lost the 16+ second lead over second place he had built up. The cars who were ahead of the safety car got a "splash 'n dash" with Hamilton unable to capitalize on the caution flag. When Hamilton finally pitted, he got back on the track needing to gain an almost impossible nearly two seconds per lap to catch Piquet's Renault -- which had inherited his lead -- before the checkered fell. In fact, as he emerged from the pit, Speed TV's commentator David Hobbs remarked, "Hamilton is pretty much doomed." Hamilton passed 'em all and won the race by 5.5 seconds. I've remarked before that Lewis Hamilton reminds me of Michael Jordan, not because of his ethnicity, but because he has an unnatural ability to, at will and on command, be clearly better than anyone else in the world. And who says there's no passing in Formula 1?
