Brawn GP - Silverstone

Well as previously mentioned over the weekend I was at the race for my fourth consecutive Silverstone. Obviously with Jenson down in 6th on the grid and Silverstone being a notoriously difficult place to overtake I realised that getting a better result may prove difficult even for someone showing the form Jenson has. I had already secured an 8/1 bet for Rubens to win at the start of the week, I find myself week in week out at the moment hoping Rubens does well. I've always found that Rubens has much more talent than his luck brings him and was jumping up and down last year for him in Club Silverstone as he made his way upto third. The Red Bulls pace was staggering and the moment Vettel left the grid and started pulling away I knew he had it in the bag which left me dissapointed for Rubens. Further from that I realised that no matter how good Ross's strategy would be trying to keep Webber at bay would still prove extremely difficult.
Rubens more aggressive driving style seemed to keep a little more warmth in the tyres whilst Jenson struggled. Towards the end of Jensons middle stint we saw him weaving down the start finish straight in an attempt to get some more temperature into the tyres, this was also having a detrimental effect on the suspension settings with Jenson finding the car bottomining out. A combination of Jensons consistent driving and strategy calls got Jenson back up the grid from 9th to 6th.
Still in my opinion another great result for Brawn GP on a circuit that doesn't necessarily suit the setup of the BGP001 which was compounded by the cool conditions of the weekend.

About Me

I have been an F1 fan from a very early age, however in my very early years I didn't really support a team just loved the racing. Since the BAR years I have been supporting this team through it's highs and lows. I'm confident under Ross Brawn's control the team will go from strength to strength and hopefully Jenson and Rubens can find themselves in a competitive car once more.
