We would like to give them and all of our supporters a good performance this coming weekend, even if we seem to struggle a bit at the moment. We have to face the fact that we were less competitive in Valencia than we had hoped for which makes it difficult to predict how we can perform at the British Grand Prix. Our race pace has been quite promising but our qualifying speed is not yet ideal and we still do not understand the full picture about the tyres. This clearly is something that we will keep working on intensively. I have a lot of different and mostly nice memories of Silverstone and therefore I am obviously very much looking forward to travelling there. We will certainly try to do our best there."

Ross Brawn, Mercedes GP team principal
"The British Grand Prix is always a very important and special weekend for our team with Silverstone situated between our factories in Brackley and Brixworth and as one of our home races. We are delighted that the British Grand Prix is secure for the foreseeable future and look forward to experiencing the new track layout at Silverstone next weekend. A lot of thought and hard work has gone into the improvement plans and Silverstone will be a venue to be proud of for both the organisers and the thousands of fans who visit over the weekend. Our team has had a challenging time over the recent race weekends in Montreal and Valencia but we retain our motivation and are working hard to improve our performance and maximise the potential which can be taken from our latest upgrades. It's a long hard road ahead but we are confident that we will get there.
Every team is brimming with confidence after the last few races. Mercedes GP is the only team SCEPTICAL about their performance.

Half way mark to the season and the only team travelling backwards.

The new logo resembles Marlboro even more than the bar code .

HRT are expected to issue a press release on the matter on Friday morning.
Surprisingly this time not an Indian driver to sit out.

For some reason, the practice session is not fully ON.

I dont see the status updating as usual, Yamamoto is there on his Debut, nothing sure why Senna was made to sit-out.

This Yamamoto news is quite schocking . Why would you debut another driver when you are in dire need of driver feedback of the car and when someone has already got to terms with the car . Im sure Senna would have done a better job .
But maybe Yamamoto brings some much needed cash .

I hope Karun stays .

Speculation continues on the return of the Iceman . Kimi please come back!

Karun is not going anywhere. He has good contacts (always had ) and he is close to Bernie. Also, Bernie thinks Chandok is the key to having a successful entry into the Indian market. Sad coz I think Senna is a better driver than Chandok and also coz I think Chandok wouldn't have got anywhere near the F1 grid if not for his dad.

autosport.com - F1 News: Safety car procedures revamped

Quote:
Instead of operating to a 'delta' time of 120% of a regular F1 lap before the cars form up behind the safety car, as under the old regulations, drivers will instead be forced to slow down to the actual estimated speed of the safety car itself.

The idea of slowing cars this much will be to ensure there is no possibility of a driver overtaking the safety car – as Lewis Hamilton did on the run out of the first corner at Valencia.

+1
Though this link up with Renault is quite old, it's first time someone active in F1 has spoken about this. I hope there is some merit to this.

Senna has driven his - and HRT’s - first nine Grands Prix this season alongside fellow newcomer Karun Chandhok. Yamamoto, a veteran of 14 Grand Prix starts with Super Aguri and Spyker (now Force India), joined the Spanish team in April.

After initially refusing to disclose the reasons for the last-minute change, HRT issued a statement on Friday saying that they simply wanted to give Yamamoto an opportunity and that Senna will continue to drive in the season’s remaining races with the team’s full support.

Michael Schumacher, P1 - 1:33.955, 9th; P2 - 1:32.660, 6th
"It was quite a reasonable Friday which went according to our expectations and it looks as if our updates have helped. Saying that, it looked similar in Valencia on Friday so I prefer to see what more we will find out tomorrow. The new part of the circuit is certainly interesting. It's very fluid and fast but there is no overtaking possibility which is a bit of pity for me. The bump at Abbey is tricky, a lot of the drivers had to really work their steering wheel, so it is likely that this will be discussed more deeply in the drivers briefing today."

Nico Rosberg, P1 - 1:33.318, 6th; P2 - 1:32.166, 5th
"It's been a decent start today
So truth about Senna sitting out is OUT, but not convincing.

There is still trouble in the Mercedes GP paradise.

Practice no ways tells the truth, Waiting for tomorrows qualifying.
