GP Week : Issue 30
> F1NEWS> ats up have 30 points in front of us and we need to keep up our head and think about the last three races which can be very good.” This is the third time in 2008 that Ferrari’s traffic light release system has resulted in a mistake for the team, following Massa’s aforementioned unsafe release in Valencia, and Kimi Raikkonen’s premature departure from his stop at the same race. Despite this, the Finn is not sure that Ferrari needs to think about reverting to the traditional lollipop system used by every other team on the grid. “I don’t know if it’s the traffic light,”he told GPWeek. “They’re working well and I don’t know what happened in the pit-stop. I don’t know if there’s something wrong.” With the unlikely top steps of the Singapore podium consisting of Fernando Alonso and Nico Rosberg, Ferrari could consider themselves to have got away lightly from their pit- lane troubles. Lewis Hamilton, however, was delighted to increase his championship lead. “I honestly can’t complain,” said Hamilton. “We were competitive in the first stint, and with the safety car we were fortunate to get out. It was just a bit unfortunate to be stuck in traffic. Nevertheless to have a podium finish in the first Singapore Night Race is a great result. I can’t complain, seven points I am quite happy with.” So a week that started with disappointment for McLaren has ended with the British team in the ascendency over their Italian rivals. With Lewis Hamilton sitting on a seven point cushion going to the Japanese Grand Prix, McLaren has also taken over from Ferrari at the top of the constructors’championship by a single point.
