Kubica is first Pole to win a Grand Prix

Latest update : 2008-06-08

One year after his frightful accident at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, BMW-Sauber's Robert Kubica roared to victory in Montreal, becoming the first Polish driver to win a Grand Prix. He now leads McLaren's Hamilton in the overall standings.

Poland's Robert Kubica, driving a BMW Sauber, won a drama-filled Canadian Grand Prix here on Sunday in which pre-race favourite Lewis Hamilton took himself and Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen out of the race in an early pit lane collision.
  
German Nick Heidfeld, also driving a BMW, claimed second place and Briton David Coulthard of the Red Bull stable finished third.
  
After lap 18 of the 70-lap race, Hamilton ploughed into the back of Raikkonen's car while he and Kubica were waiting for the red light at the end of the pit lane.
  
Kubica leapfrogged Hamilton to the top of the drivers' world championship and BMW Sauber now top the constructor's title race.
