Century Mark

Today’s Hungarian Grand Prix made a little history. Not for the 3 pit lane fires of Kaz Nakajima, Sebatien Bourdais and Rubens Barrichello, but it was the winner who made history. Heikki Kovalainen (McLaren) won the race after passing Felipe Massa with 2 laps to go after the engine in Massa’s Ferrari blew up. Massa was pushing the car very hard in the early going and it came back to bit him as he had to limp the car home with an overheating problem. Now, why Kova’s victory historical? Well, Heikki became the 100th different driver to win a Formula 1 Grand Prix.
