It’s been a bad week for sport. First we are out the European Championship (okay, but Israel isn’t going to beat Russia are they?), then England go and lose to South Africa in the World Cup in part to two silly penalties in front of the posts. And today the nation was crushed again when Louis Hamilton first made a mistake which was recoverable but then hardware gremlins crept in and Louis dropped places till he was amongst the also-rans. He finally ended 7th and that means second, not first, to Kimi Raikkonen.
