British Grand Prix Review (in short)



Kimi and Ferrari put on a display of speed and strategy at the British Grand Prix today. Kimi overcame some cunning tactical work by McLaren as they short-filled Fernando Alonso’s McLaren and put him ahead of the scarlet car of Kimi Raikonen after the first pit stop. Kimi answered back with brilliant driving and tactical work from the pit crew to open a 26 second gap between him and Alonso giving Kimi the lead after the second stop.

Sadly Lewis Hamilton did not win his home Grand Prix starting from Pole Position but the drive of the afternoon is a close match between Kimi Raikonen and Felipe Massa. Massa, who stalled on the grid, started from 22 position and finished 5th in what could only be described as a very Ferrari-esque drive ala’ Barrichello and Schumacher. Today’s result tightens the race for the World Championship:

Lewis Hamilton 70
Fernando Alonso 58
Kimi Räikkönen 52
Felipe Massa 51
Nick Heidfeld 33
Robert Kubica 22
Giancarlo Fisichella 17
Heikki Kovalainen 14
Alexander Wurz 8
Jarno Trulli 7

On a personal note I must say that this was a very exciting race with lots of passing, strategy and mid-pack racing. I was delighted to see the Williams Toyota cars of Alex Wurz and Nico Rosberg dicing for position and presenting so well. Kudos to the team for making a grand race in the midfield.
