Six out of 7 for Jenson, Can he be stopped?


Jenson with yet another steller drive at Istanbul to take another race win and take his point tally to 61 and extending Brawn GP's Championship lead by 39.5 points from Red Bull Racing.
A mistake by Vettel on the opening lap gave Jenson the lead and the opportunity to charge away in the opening sequence. Red bull decided to compromise Vettels race further by placing him on a 3 stop strategy compared to his team mates 2 stop allowing Webber to jump him during the pit stops. Vettels strategy issues were further compounded by Vettel coming up behind Jenson and not being able to put a move on him.
This all helps Jenson in his campaign for the Championship with Webber getting a bigger haul of points than his RBR counterpart.
Not such a great day for Rubens having ended up in anti stall off the grid and dropping from 3rd to 13th. Rubens then had a clash with Adrian Sutil getting frustrated at his clearly much faster pace. Rubens race was totally destroyed when he announced over the radio that he was racing without 7th gear and seems to be the reason for his retirement near the end of the race.

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.
