Formula 1 – British GP Silverstone Preview


Another weekend another race. The F1 circus moves across the Channel from France to Britain. This is expected to be a sell out with Hamilton and 3 other British drivers on the grid.

As Alonso says everybody wants Hamilton to win here (including the McLaren team) but watch out for Ferrari. They were fastest here during the tests just few weeks ago and scored 1-2 finish last week in France.

This is a pretty fast track with few overtaking opportunities so we may see some decent racing here. The English weather also can ad some additional excitement to the race or perhaps to qualifying and mix up the pack a bit. If there is no rain, this should be Ferrari McLaren fight again with 4 candidates for race win …Alex Wurz finished 3rd here 10 years ago, David Coulthard won twice on this track, Barrichello and Alonso once.

And these are top 10 finishers in past 10 years (in 1998 only 9 cars finished), in 1998 and 2002 only the top 3 drivers finished on the same lap …

    Great video compilation. We forgot to show Senna best start lap ever made was in Silverstone, this can’t be forgot.
    Anyway, I think Massa have great change of winning and Kimi can be top4. However, since others middle team will fight for get position, since Silverstone have good prestige between all teams.

    I don’t know, but my feelin’ say that Hamilton under HUGE pressure there could be make him made mistake, and be out of track for first time.
