Video 24 - A Maiden F1 Victory - BMW take their first win with a convincing 1-2 finish in Canada

Published by Mr. C

Last weekend in Canada there was a new man standing upon the top step of the podium, Robert Kubica. It was also the first time his team BMW Sauber F1 had won a Grand Prix and they did it in style with a perfect 1-2.

Formula One has been dominated by just two teams and a handful of drivers for the past 18 months, so we figured this was an event worth documenting. In the process, we catch up with Kubica and teammate Heidfeld along with big boss man Mario Theissen on their way back from the podium celebrations. But don't you go pretending that a gutted Nick Heidfeld doesn't make you want to cry, you know he does.

F1 has a new top team to mix up the status quo and we're really looking forward to the second half of the season. As Jesse Malin aptly puts it: "A new generation, and the whole world's shaking". Couldn't have put it better ourselves.
