But at the same, there are a lot of fans out there who are willing to do anything to get up close with their idols, and for some of them, that means spending more. Wouldn’t you want to buy a car once raced or driven by Michael Fassbender? Well, if you could afford it, why not?

In fact, many celebrity-owned cars have been put up for sale before, including Daniel Craig’s one-off Aston Martin Vanquish. There’s also Elvis Presley’s 1971 Mercedes Benz 280SEL. That’s not all.

Hamilton initially had a heated engagement with Vettel and Romain Grosjean in the opening laps, but was able to control the race afterwards.

The only time that he gave up the lead to Grosjean and then to Reb Bull’s Mark Webber was during his pitstop. After his first pitstop, Hamilton found came up behind former McLaren teammate Jenson Button. Button, however, failed to defend and took the opportunity Hamilton to overtake him.

Lewis Hamilton was able to fend off the sudden charge by Sergio Perez to be hailed as the winner of the Italian Grand Prix. Meanwhile, Fernando Alonso came through from being at 10th on the grid to third, adding to his Formula 1 points. Alonso got the advantage when Sebastian Vettel, his biggest rival, was imposed a penalty for forcing him off the road as they battled it out at the middle of the race.

He later retired with a mechanical issue. For nearly the entire length of the race, it seemed like a straightforward McLaren one-two was a possibility. Even if Felipe Massa did very well at the start of the track by aiming to immediately pass Jenson Button for second and then force Hamilton into the first chicane, the poleman was soon able to move away.

Button was then able to move past Ferrari to achieve second right after their pitstops. With only 19 laps left, Button was compelled to park his McLaren as he approached the Parabolica, with what was known initially as a fuel pressure problem. This enabled Massa to reach the No. 2 position but with Alonso not far behind. The leader had gotten two places off the start, before getting past Kamui Kobayashi and Kimi Raikkonen who were moving one after the other.

The win of McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton last Sunday at the Hungarian Grand Prix marks his second victory for the season. Hamilton, the world champion in 2008, did very well during qualifying on Saturday, and so it got a secure pole position (McLaren’s 150th). He was very stealthy and he would have run very wide into the right-handed Turn One and still come to the front.

Trailing him is Sebastian Vettel who came after Romain Grosjean. But since the current world champion was elbowed out by the Frenchman, Jenson Button was able to get the opportunity to get past Vettel and take third place. In the early stages of the race, Hamilton was unable to move forward because of Grosjean, whose Lotus is typically easy on Pirelli’s tire compounds.

Button stayed at third place for 15 laps but he then started to lose his grip and had to enter the pits to get a new set of medium-compound tyres. Button was able to get back to its position after Vettel and Fernando Alonso made their first stops about a couple of months later. Hamilton came in at the end of lap 18. This incident shows how high McLaren’s standards because of an issue with one of its wheel guns.

Lewis Hamilton’s victory at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal for the Canadian Grand Prix was extremely thrilling. So far this season, there have been no repeat winners in the last seven races. Hamilton, the world champion in 2008, won the race by outdoing Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso when it came to tactics.

At the beginning, the three drivers, who were on super-soft Pirelli rubber, drove straight to the front of the field. Ferrari’s Alonso seemed to have the advantage over the Red Bull’s Vettel and Hamilton from McLaren. Even so, the Briton had an excellent middle stint during the race and was only able to achieve a small gap between its rivals.

Tension mounted as Hamilton was brought for a second pitstop for new tires, if we believe rumors that Ferrari and Red Bull will both use a similar strategy. When it had become apparent that Alonso and Vettel would both take risks in reaching the race’s end using a one-stop strategy, McLaren told Hamilton to go on a charge to narrow the ten-second advantage of the leaders.

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton recently won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after having failed to score a win since July. A puncture had caused world champion Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel to retire on the first lap. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso took second place. Jenson Button also appeared at the podium even with the KERS issues on his McLaren.

At the first corner, Vettel got a clear lead but one bend later, his right rear tire deflated and this made his car spin wildly. Vettel made an attempt to patch up his car at the pits but the damage was too severe. This is the first time that Vettel retired since the Korean GP last year. This gave Hamilton the lead.

Alonso was at second after he passed Mark Webber (Red Bull) at the start. Alonso then secured the second place when he went around the outside of Button. For most of the race, McLaren and Ferrari were in a very tight race. There were times when the gap was a little more than a second. Ferrari attempted to get ahead by running longer before Alonso's second stop.

Red Bull considers Webber’s third place finish as its best result for the race as championship leader Sebastian Vettel took the fourth place after he had been at close odds with Ferrari’s Felipe Massa during the race.

The 2010 Belgian Grand Prix winner is Lewis Hamilton, putting him to the lead of the Formula 1 World Championship. He dominated the race the entire afternoon and he even got through two safety car periods and a stumble through the gravel during a wet segment of the race. He continued the race to beat Mark Webber by 1.5 seconds.

Hamilton took the lead at the beginning of the race when polesitter Webber fell to sixth place as his Red Bull's anti-stall mechanism kicked in. There was never any real competition at the front even with a short burst of rain that forced him to run off the track at the

Bus Stop chicane on the opening lap. He then slowed down by a rate of more than half a second per lap. When rain dropped a second time, he already had an 11-second advantage. As the track became wetter, Hamilton pushed harder and this caused him to go off into the gravel at Rivage.
