Lewis Hamilton takes the Indy chequered flag, his McLaren MP4/22 Mercedes wins the 15 June 2007 event…

Hamilton won from Fernando Alonso in the other McLaren and Felipe Massa’s Ferrari F2007. Robert Kubica’s huge Canadian GP shunt the week before allowed Sebastian Vettel to make his GP debut for BMW Sauber. He was the teams test and reserve driver, his eighth place making him the youngest driver to win a championship point.

Sadly it was the last USGP at Indy, Tony George and Bernie Ecclestone unable to agree acceptable commercial terms. The Austin, Texas ‘Circuit of The Americas’ first hosted the event in November 2012.
