Close, But No Cigar

Pre-Race Photo Op, American Le Mans, 2006

Well, despite a fantastic first stint, Lewis couldn't quite make it stick. Whatever was happening, it's clear his pace was behind whatever Raikkonen and Alonso could post. The first pit-stop set the seal on the remainder of the race, leaving Hamilton slipping down to third and staying there for the rest of the race.

From a points perspective, it was an OK result, but LH must be disappointed that he ended up slipping from pole to third and having no response to the pace of his team mate, let alone the Ferrari.

Onwards from here to the remaining races in the season , of course, but he'll have his work cut out to keep his lead intact heading into the latter stages of the championship.
