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

Awesome race by Webber,thats agression.

Though Vettel goofed up, though been give an advantage of the controversial Webber's Wings, solace being 7th place for him.

Hamilton and Nico drove a good race ahead for a deserving 2nd and 3rd.

I just loved the way Sutil kept Vettel at bay for a great 4 laps

Schumi drove well, though i still feel his car is not up to the mark.

A popular win for Webber! A good race for the McLarens. And a very good podium for Rosberg.
Just what is happening at Ferrari is a mystery to the spectators. The people at the pits should help their drivers by making key decisions and getting it right is very much important now because they only pit once these days. Ferrari's people in the pits seem hare-brained. This is not the first time they have screwed the race for their drivers.

And Alonso is to be blamed as much as Ferrari. A good start and he could have easily got a podium or maybe a win. It is time both the parties shut up and work towards achieving a common goal.

Massa is a disaster. I know he is back from an accident and is doing good. But he seems to have major difficulties getting past drivers in the race and will suffer if Ferrari can't sort their Qualifying.

Schumi had another bad race. Frankly I am wondering is it a problem with the driver or the car itself. He is not able to finish races strongly and is very much affecting his end position. They will have to rethink their pit strategy for Schumi and not club him with Rosberg.
Ferrari's challenge is over this year! With a hot head and a slow coach on track plus a bunch of clowns in the pits:(
Time to start working on 2011 car(gutted to write this)

Ferrari needs to know they are in F1, todays race was totally screwed.

Schumi's car's pace is as good as what it is right now, its evident,that since last 5 races his car is not gripping well, his tyre set-up is horrible. Whatever happened to the upgrades Mercedes GP supposed to have done on his car.

Schumi still was at his best, i really hope to see a good car for him. Though Nico has a well suited car which clearly shows his pace in qualifying and in the race. Lets wait for yet another race.

MSC made mistakes back to back - One on Q3 during his flying lap and another on raceday during his outlap.Both cost him a lot
His race pace is quite good but unless he sorts his qualifying laps out,this season is going to end like this - a frustrating one for his fans and most importantly for himself too.
I am already looking forward to 2011 when FIA does away with these narrow front tyres.

Good job Force India, loved the way Sutil kept Vettel fuming til the end, Bull was indeed all red.

Ferrari should have told Alonso to back off and let the Renault pass, costly mistake.

Vettel passed Sutil at the end. We must realise that the Force India is competitive and F1 is not like it used be before. Teams are very closely matched and passing has become more difficult or maybe challenging. No more free meals

All in all a good race. Mclaren's, especially that of Jenson Button looked a lot better with the weight of the fuel. Defenitely helped him to cover places pretty well. Excellent drive by Lewis Hamilton and Mark Webber. ALonso deserved the drive through penalty. Life has defenitely become tough for Ferrari. They were completly unprepared for Massa"s Pitstop, though it seemed unplanned. They looked so impressive in the qualifying but race was a different ball game.

Red Bull brought two of their new front wings to Silverstone. But the first was broken when it failed on Vettel’s car during final practice this morning. So, they pulled out the one from Webber's car and put it on Vettel's. thats the reason for the outburst and a lot of bad blood is going to flow within Red Bull team now.

Default Lap-Lap detailed report of the 2010 Silverstone GP

for those who've missed this race , here is a detailed lap-lap report of the action on the racetrack.

Vettel led the field around on the formation lap from pole position with his team mate Webber next to him on the front row, most of the runners starting on the softer tyre.

At the start Vettel gets a slow start and Webber takes the lead into the first corner, Vettel second - Hamilton jumps up to third and touches Vettel's right rear tyre with his front wing. Vettel goes wide at Maggots corner and reports on his radio that he has a puncture. Hamilton takes second and is right on Webber's tail. Robert Kubica up to third, followed by Rosberg, Fernando Alonso, Barrichello, Schumacher, Button, Kobayashi and Sutil.

Alonso and Felipe Massa touch and at the end of the first lap Massa pits with a punctured right rear tyre, and switches to the harder tyre.

Vettel limps back to the pits and changes to the harder tyres - and rejoins in last place almost a minute and a half behind the leader.

Webber starts edging away from Hamilton, while further back a line of cars starts to form behind Kubica, with Rosberg and Alonso fighting him for position.

Webber and Hamilton lapping in the 1m36 range, while Kubica and the train of cars behind him running in the 1m38's.

At lap 10, Webber leads Hamilton by 2.9 seconds, followed by Kubica (16.7s), Rosberg (17.8s), Alonso (18.5s), Barrichello (19.8s), Schumacher (20.8s), Button (21.5s), Kobayashi (22.1s) and Sutil (25.0s) in tenth place - Massa in 20th, and Vettel in 24th place, 1m27 seconds behind the leader.

On lap 10 Lucas di Grassi pits - the team working on the car in the garage.

On lap 11 Schumacher pits from 7th place and rejoins in 15th, switching to the harder tyres.

On lap 12 Alonso from fifth place, Barrichello and Kobayashi all pit. Kubica from third place and Pedro de la Rosa pit the next lap. Alonso runs wide at Copse corner but continues.

On lap 14 Rosberg running in third, trying to consolidate his position before his stop, sets the fastest lap.

On lap 15 Rosberg pits and rejoins in sixth place ahead of Kubica and Alonso. Sutil and Vitaly Petrov also pit.

On lap 16 Hamilton pits from second place, while running seven seconds behind Webber, and rejoins on the harder tyre.

Alonso battles Kubica and passes him for seventh place, being forced to cut across the inside of the corner to do so.

On lap 17 Webber pits and retains the lead, while Hamilton sets the fastest lap.

On lap 19 Rosberg passes Jaime Alguersuari, yet to pit, for fifth place. Webber responds and retakes fastest lap. Kubica limps back to the pits with a mechanical problem and retires - reportedly a differential problem.

At lap 20, Webber leads Hamilton by 3.9 seconds, followed by Button (7.6s) and Hulkenberg (21.6s), yet to pit, Rosberg (25.6s), Alonso (26.7s), Alguersuari (29.3s), Barrichello (32.2s), Kobayashi (33.0s), and Schumacher (34.1s) in tenth place - Massa in 16th and Vettel in 21st, 1m14 seconds behind.

On lap 21 Button makes his stop from third place, rejoining in sixth.

A piece of Rosberg's bargeboard falls off, but the German driver continues.

Webber sets a number of fastest laps pulling out a six second lead by lap 25.

On lap 25 De la Rosa and Sutil battle. The two make contact and the Sauber sheds pieces of it's rear wing. De la Rosa pits for repairs.

On lap 26 Hulkenberg pits from sixth place. Race control gives Alonso a drive-through penalty for cutting the corner while passing Kubica earlier. The Safety Car is deployed because of the debris from De la Rosa's rear wing.

Ferrari tells Alonso on the radio that he must take his penalty after the Safety Car period.

The race resumes on lap 30, Alonso pits to serve his penalty rejoining in 16th, and Hamilton pushes Webber at the start, but the Red Bull pulls away - setting the fastest lap.

At lap 31, Webber leads Hamilton by 1.3 seconds, followed by Rosberg (5.8s), Button (7.1s), Barrichello (8.1s), Kobayashi (8.8s), Schumacher (9.4s), Sutil (9.7s), Hulkenberg (10.9s) and Petrov (11.1s) in tenth place - Massa in 13th, Vettel 14th and Alonso in 16th.

Hulkenberg, Petrov and Alguersuari battle for ninth place. Sutil passes Schumacher for seventh place - the two making contact. Vettel passes Massa for 12th place. Alonso battles Buemi for 15th place - the Ferrari taking the position.

Webber sets a number of fastest laps and pulls out a 3.8 second lead on Hamilton by lap 35.

On lap 37 Alonso passes Liuzzi but runs wide, the Italian taking back the position.

On lap 38 Vettel passes Petrov for 10th place, and then passes Hulkenberg the next lap for ninth place.

On lap 39 Massa pits for an unscheduled stop after spinning in the final corner and flat spotting his tyres.

On lap 40 Vettel battles Schumacher and passes him for eighth place. Petrov pits for tyres.

At lap 41 Webber continues to lead Hamilton by 5.3 seconds, followed by Rosberg (20.0s), Button (21.1s), Barrichello (25.7s), Kobayashi (26.6s), Sutil (27.4s), Vettel (28.3s), Schumacher (29.8s) and Hulkenberg (30.4s) in tenth place - Alonso in 13th.

With 10 laps to go Button is pushing to catch Rosberg for the final spot on the podium, one second behind the German - but Button has to conserve fuel to finish.

On lap 44 Vettel battles with Sutil over seventh place. Webber continues to set fastest laps.

On lap 45 Alguersuari goes off in the gravel trap at the final corner and is out of the race.

On lap 49 Alonso pits from 12th place with a punctured left rear tyre after coming together with Liuzzi.

At lap 50, Webber leads Hamilton by 6.1 seconds, followed by Rosberg (25.3s), Button (26.6s), Barrichello (34.1s), Kobayashi (35.3s), Sutil (40.7s), Vettel (41.2s), Schumacher (42.1s) and Hulkenberg (42.3s) in tenth place.

Vettel continues to battle with Sutil, and finally passes him for seventh place, Hulkenberg battles with Schumacher behind them.

Webber crosses the flag to take the win for Red Bull - his third win of the season and fifth of his career.


I did not type all this. No patience

Well, I would give thumbs up for both Force India drivers.
They gave a good run to both Vettel and Alonso for quite a few laps.

Webbers race today was a hard Smack on Vettel and RedBull's face.

He should still be smiling with joy and he must be proud of what he achieved today.

All credit to him, No hype unlike Vettel.

His action spoke louder than words.
