Mclaren were running a blown diffuser this grand prix but after testing it for the first session decided revert to old setting as per Autosport and reintroduce it in Germany.

While Hamilton put up a good show with P4.

I quite did not understand what Mercedes GP were doing with Schumi's car in the Pit with 4 mins remaining A lowly 10th for Schumi who was great during Q2. Hope he gains more position during tomorrows race.

Sadly none of the Force India cars looked good today.

Button's position is really shocking! McLaren could have performed better at home!!

RBR 1 & 2 yet again! These guys are so quick!! It was funny to see Alonso staring at Webber's car after qualifying, wondering as if 'what is so special about it?'

Red-Bull remains a mystery They suddenly pull out 8 tenths of a time at the correct moment to stun the competition. I never thought a sub 1:30 lap was possible there in Silverstone.

Well done to Ferrari for upping their pace. Alonso is driving as if he is possessed. Massa too is looking competitive and a good strategy should help him up some places barring the race being 'Valenciaized'. Their pace during the race should be even better.

And kudos to Lewis. I am not a big fan of his, but what he did in Q3 was simply awesome. P4 in a car which seems to be riding on a pogo-stick. Button should shut and concentrate on his driving. Too much of excuses!

Interestingly Schumi's time in Q3 is slower than Q2 whereas Rosberg was able to pull out a lap in Q3 which was 4 tenths faster than his Q2 lap. Hoping for Schumi to show more pace during the race.

Should be a great race tomorrow!

Maybe they wanted to save his soft's for the race.I was watching the timing screen and on his first flier Schumi was faster than Rubens on Sector's 1&2.He lost 3 seconds on Sector3.I think he made a mistake there,but since the camera's werent showing his lap,couldnt confirm.

I am banking on his start tomorrow.He has had superb starts in the last 2-3 races and made up places.But all that got nullified due to factors which werent in his control.Hope lady luck smiles on him tomorrow

Meanwhile Jenson Button has lived upto his record of doing extremely poor on Silverstone qualifying .

Liuzzi given a 5 place grid penalty for blocking Hulkenberg in Q2, so he will start from 20

FIA goes back and forth on safety car rules
autosport.com - F1 News: More tweaks to safety car procedures


Quote:
Furthermore, the FIA will also reserve the right to delay sending out the safety car itself on to track during a caution period, so there is no chance of it splitting up a leading gaggle of cars.

This should prevent a repeat of what happened in Valencia, when the immediate dispatch of the safety car meant it split race leader Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton and cost the pursuing Ferraris valuable lap time.
This is ridiculous. This can have serious implications on safety. How do they decide when to delay and when not to delay? Sending out safety car SHOULD NOT depend on where the leading cars are on track. Safety of the drivers involved in the accident should be given the highest priority to ensure the medical car reaches the accident spot as quickly as possible.
Driver's deliberately disobeying rules (like Hamilton in last race) should be dealt with immediately.

+1
It was actually Vettel who tried to squeeze Webber after having a bad start himself. Needless to say Vettel deserved what he got.

EDIT:
Alonso's race is screwed. He got a drive through penalty and now safety car deployed to make matters worse for him.

1st- Webber
2nd- Hamilton
3rd - Rosberg
4th- Button

what a race.
Webber flew all the way.
Hamilton fought for a while but eventually settled for 2nd.
good job Button for coming all the way upto 4th.
vettel stormed his way through till 7th.
alonso pitted again after a squabble with Liuzzi.
Massa went off road and flat spotted his tyres. pit stop for that.
Sutil did good a passing move on McSchumi.
Kubica drove well all along till he retired.

Webber wins!

Webber on radio after winning: "Not bad for a number 2 driver.".

Ferrari clueless strategy again, gave away an easy P4 for Alonso. Probably they should know that two wrongs don't make a right.
