On Sunday, for the second straight week, 22-year-old British driver Lewis Hamilton (SI, June 18) made history on the Formula One circuit. Though he had never before raced on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway's road course, Hamilton (right) won the U.S. Grand Prix in dominating fashion, starting from the pole and leading 66 of the 73 laps to finish 1.5 seconds ahead of his McLaren teammate (and reigning world champion) Fernando Alonso. The week before, Hamilton had won the Canadian Grand Prix, becoming the first black driver to win an F/1 race. With his victory at Indy, Hamilton established several more firsts: He became the first black driver in any series to take a checkered flag at the Brickyard; he's the first F/1 driver to finish in the top three in each of his first seven career starts; and he's the first rookie to hold a 10-point lead in the standings in the 57-year history of F/1. Hamilton's quick start already has the European press comparing him with Michael Schumacher, the seven-time F/1 champ. What's more certain is this: With 10 races left in the season, the Formula One title is clearly Hamilton's to lose.
