LEWIS Hamilton has pitted for the second time in the Turkish Grand Prix and is now behind the two Ferraris in Istanbul.

The 23-year-old Tewin driver was leading the race when he came in for his second set of hard tyres, handing Felipe Massa the advantage again.

Reigning world champion Kimi Raikkonen, the other Ferrari driver, is just ahead of Hamilton in second.

Herts hero Hamilton had overtaken Massa, who started from pole position, on lap 23 with a magnificent pass to take the lead.

Massa, Raikkonen and McLaren master Hamilton, who is on a three-stop strategy, all have to pit again with 20 laps to go.
