Lewis Hamilton in pole position for the U.S. Grand Prix

The British Formula-1 wonder Lewis Hamilton will start first today at the Indianapolis for the US Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton in pole position for the U.S. Grand Prix The success of Hamilton in snatching the pole position from Fernando Alonso may as well be a victory for the video game industry, proving that playing games is not necessarily a waste of time. While Alonso was the fastest in both practices on Friday, the qualifier had Lewis Hamilton written all over with time of one minute 12.331 seconds. A good day for McLaren-Mercedes as the teammates own first row at the US Grand Prix.

 And just like any major sporting event, the U.S. Grand Prix has its own set of rumours. According to the Spanish newspaper Diario As, Lewis Hamilton must have been analyzing the data from Fernando Alonso's driving on Friday, otherwise the British driver could not have won the pole position, quote: "He studies (Alonso's) braking points, where he turns, every detail, and because he is a very good driver and because McLaren is a very good team he is able to dispute for pole position."

 Fernando Alonso did express concern earlier this week over the sharing of telemetry among the McLaren-Mercedes drivers. Alonso commented that he also believes that his and other teammate's (Pedro de la Rosa) driving data helped Lewis Hamilton.

 Accusations of this kind would put even more pressure on Hamilton to win the U.S. Grand Prix and prove once again that he is ready to win his first Formula 1 driver championship.

 The U.K. online bookmaker Bet365 continues to favour Lewis Hamilton with odds to win the US Grand Prix at 8/11, followed by Fernando Alonso with odds of 11/10. Underdog is Christijan Albers with odds of 2500/1.

 The Indianapolis Motor Speedway will host the US Grand Prix this Sunday with a start time set at 1:00pm EST. The weather prognosis for Indianapolis today is mostly sunny and the Formula 1 race is expected to start on time.
