KR won the most races in 2007 but Ferrari reliability meant that he only won it due to McLaren's implosion.

(Spain, Europe - KR mechanicals. Lewis & Fernando had none)

The real winner of the battle was Raikkonen don't forget it ;)

Hamilton beat Alonso in 2007, he finished 2nd, Alonso 3rd. But equal in points, equal in number of victories (4); Alonso didn't blow away, like some did ( Fisichella with Alonso in 2005, maybe Montoya with Kimi in 2005, Bourdais, Coulthard with Kimi in 2003... ).

But for sure, Hamilton beat a two-times WC on his rookie year and no one can denied it! Favoured by McLaren or not. In my mind, only Schumi managed something similar ( he "beat" Piquet on his first Benetton races! ).

Sauber have named Monisha Kaltenborn, 38, as the team's managing director, believed to be the first time a woman has held such a senior position in an F1 team. The move is part of a wider management restructure following the former owner BMW's withdrawal. Founder Peter Sauber becomes team principal, while veteran Willi Rampf remains as technical director.

To rip off from what I saw on another forum, we now know why they didn't get on at McLaren in 07. (Hint, the possible innuendo involved from those comments...)

Wow! Now that's a winning team. Maybe Homer Simpson and Hank Hill will be signed on as drivers. :lol:
