I'm not a huge fan of Formula One but this afternoon's events were just mind blowing.
The drama, spectacle, and last ditch victory from the jaws of defeat ending, was the stuff of sporting legend.
The sight of the Ferrari team celebrating, only to slump in disbelief as Hamilton caught Timo Glock on the last bend, took me back many years to another event I had an interest in, but no emotional attachment to, which has lived long in sporting folklore.
On that day, Michael Thomas was the hero putting the local favourites to the sword in the dying seconds.
