La Cote des Montres - May 30th, 2010
Lewis has won the Turkish Grand Prix - his first victory of the season - and Jenson was second. Polesitter Mark Webber finished 3rd after loosing the head further to a clash with his team mate Sebastian Vettel. Proving that team spirit counts.

The win is the first for Hamilton this season and is his 12th career victory. McLaren now jumps to the lead in the constructors’ championship by one point over Red Bull.
