FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX DU CANADA 2008 (Race)

庫比卡獲首冠  漢米爾頓雷克車相撞退出

特約記者飛耀/綜合報導

2008賽季F1加拿大站,70圈的爭奪、歷時1小時36分24秒447,寶馬車手庫比卡(Robert Kubica)率先沖過終點,奪得個人職業生涯的首個分站冠軍。這也是歷史上首位波蘭車手奪得F1的分站冠軍。

海德菲爾德(Nick Heidfeld)落後16.4秒奪得亞軍,寶馬實現車隊成立以來的首個分站冠軍夢,同時還是一次完美的包攬前兩名。紅牛車手庫特哈德(David Coulthard)本季首次奪得第三登上領獎臺。

格洛克(Timo Glock)、馬薩(Felipe Massa)、特魯利(Jarno Trulli)、巴瑞切羅(Rubens Barrichello)和維特爾(Sebastien Vettel)分居4至8位,奪冠熱門漢米爾頓(Lewis Hamilton)和雷克南(Kimi Raikkonen)在比賽中相撞退賽。

本站過後,庫比卡以42分登上車手積分榜榜首,馬薩追平漢米爾頓(38分)分居二、三,雷克南下滑至第四。法拉利以3分的優勢繼續領跑車隊積分榜,寶馬升至第二,而麥拿侖已經落後20分下滑至第三。

伴隨著首次在F1賽場響起的波蘭國歌,F1的分站冠軍榜上刻上了一個新的名字:羅伯特-庫比卡。1年之前,這位波蘭新人曾經在蒙特婁遭遇「生死時速」的考驗,但是一切的考驗都在1年後修成正果。車隊總監馬里奧-泰森首次站在領獎臺代表車隊領獎,整支寶馬都在今天陷入了無盡的喜悅。

庫比卡對於這場「美妙」的比賽讚歎不已,加拿大站的勝利幫助他在車手積分榜上超越漢米爾頓傲視群雄,「能夠為寶馬-索伯贏下首個分站冠軍,這種感覺太棒了!我們一起成長,感謝車隊提供了1輛出色的賽車,能夠讓我們包攬冠亞軍。雖然我們的速度可能並不是最快的,因炭我知道可能趕不上劉易斯的速度。但這仍然是完美的,對於我個人,對於車隊,對於我的國家,還有我所有的車迷!」

兩周後,F1將回到歐洲。台灣時間6月22日,法國大獎賽將在馬格尼-庫斯賽道舉行,這可能將是F1最後一次在這條賽道舉行。

Crash penalty is harsh - Hamilton

McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton believes the 10-place grid penalty he was given for crashing in the pits in Sunday's Canadian Grand Prix is too severe.

The Englishman will be moved back on the grid for the French Grand Prix on 22 June after running into the back of Kimi Raikkonen's Ferrari on Sunday.

"I start 10 places back in the next race. It's a bit harsh, I didn't aim to ruin anyone's race," Hamilton said.

He also condemned as "silly" the rule that led to the accident.

Raikkonen and the BMW Sauber of eventual winner Robert Kubica were stopped at a red light at the pit lane exit when Hamilton, who had noticed the light too late, slammed into the back of the Finn.

The light was on as part of F1's safety car rules.


We warned him, but we could have done it earlier

It is used when the safety car and the F1 field lined up behind it are passing or are about to pass the pit lane exit.

The idea behind the rule is to avoid potential collisions between cars already on the track, and those rejoining.

Hamilton said: "The rule is silly. We are in the race, how can you red light at the end of the pit-lane? But that's the rule and I accept it."

McLaren managing director Martin Whitmarsh added that he felt the penalty was "quite severe".

But Whitmarsh also said that the team had specifically warned Hamilton that there may be a red light at the end of the pit lane, although he did not explicitly blame his driver for the crash.

"Frankly, we gave [the warning] to him, [but] we could have given it to him earlier," he told autosport.com.

"There was quite a lot going on, obviously, as we were fuelling Lewis's car and that of his team-mate Heikki Kovalainen.

"When you come in first and come out third I'm sure you're anxious to see if you can jump past those people, and I'm sure that distracted him.

"As Nico [Rosberg] proved seconds later [when he ran into the back of Hamilton's car], it was easy to do."

Hamilton, who lost the championship lead to Kubica as a result of the incident, has insisted he will bounce back as strong as ever in France.

"This will make no difference," he said, speaking to British newspapers.

"It hasn't knocked me confidence-wise. I'm not gutted or disappointed.

"We are baffled how it came to that in the space of 30 seconds.

MESSAGEBOARD
These are early days and this is no train smash, just another painful learning experience for the extra passionate Hamilton

Arkimsa
Message board: Have your say

"I had two guys in front of me and suddenly they have stopped as I have looked at the red light. But you can't win them all. This makes me stronger.

"Going forward, the mood is strong. The fact is, we destroyed everyone [on pace].

"With the car we have right now, there is no stopping us. It is not going to take me a day to recover or anything. I am really looking forward to Magny-Cours."

加拿大上演連環追尾事件 肇事者雙雙受罰
ESPNSTAR.COM.TW  2008年6月10日 16:45  來源:ESS  

台北時間6月9日凌晨結束的F1世界錦標賽結束後,賽會調取了比賽資料,對發生在維修區的追尾事故進行分析後,對此次事件的主要「肇事者」漢密爾頓和羅斯伯格做出裁決:兩人在下一站美孚壹號法國大賽上退後10位發車。

  比賽進行到第19圈時,總冠軍爭奪熱門人物漢密爾頓和雷克南同時進站,但因為安全車還在賽道上領跑,維修站出口暫時關閉,率先完成進站的法拉利車手雷克南為了防止違規而受罰,正在出口出等待綠燈,被隨後完成進站的邁凱輪車手漢密爾頓撞上,雷克南的後定風翼脫落,而漢密爾頓的賽車則因為這次碰撞不但使前定風翼脫落,同時前懸架繫統也受到嚴重損壞,雙方不得不早早得結束了比賽的競爭。

  就在漢密爾頓與雷克南發生碰撞的同時,漢密爾頓身後的威廉斯車手羅斯伯格也沒能將賽車停住,他和漢密爾頓的賽車尾部發生了碰撞,但慶幸的是羅斯伯格在更換了前鼻翼後,仍能繼續比賽。

  6月22日的美孚壹號法國大賽上,漢密爾頓和羅斯伯格將在排位成績上退後10位發車。
