Kubica wins in bizzare fashion


Robert Kubica took his and the BMW Sauber team’s first Formula One victory in a dramatic Canadian Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton crashed out in the pits. Kubica survived an intervention by the safety car and a crumbling track that provoked errors from several drivers. Hamilton ended both his and Raikkonen’s race as he crashed into the back of the Ferrari as the Finn waited on a red light at the end of the pit lane. Nick Heidfeld completed a BMW one-two with Red Bull’s David Coulthard third. It was the 37-year-old Scot’s best result since he finished third in the Monaco Grand Prix two years ago. The Toyota of Timo Glock was fourth, ahead of Ferrari’s Felipe Massa. The Brazilian passed the second Toyota of Jarno Trulli two laps from the end when the Italian was delayed when his team-mate an error in front of him. Rubens Barrichello’s Honda was seventh – the Brazilian had been running fourth, holding off the Toyotas, when he made an error and slid wide on the slippery track with 10 laps remaining. Toro Rosso’s Sebastian Vettel took the final points place, holding off Heikki Kovalainen’s McLaren in the closing laps.
