Lewis Hamilton in pole after Alonso penalized

Is Lewis Hamilton’s dismal run of luck improving at last? Yet another dramatic scenario unfolded yesterday in the qualifying stage of today’s Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Times (London) reports : “Fernando Alonso was sensationally stripped of his pole position for the Hungarian Grand Prix late last night and saw it handed to McLaren teammate Lewis Hamilton. The Spaniard was docked five places on today’s starting grid after he deliberately held up the emerging British superstar in yesterday’s final qualifying session.”

It seems that McLaren will also be stripped of any points won in the constructors’ world championship from today’s race.
