    Prost in 84 and Raikkonen in 05 I think both won seven times and lost to Lauda and Alonso respectively.

    Alonso was only a tenth of a second off Webber's time. I think we might see him leading into the first corner given the quick start of the Ferrari.

    I really wanted Jake to say something - it's one thing to pop up in the background it's another to almost take out the host!

    The lesser spotted stop/go penalty in evidence this weekend due to the new pitlane.

    Ron Dennis needs to take charge of mclaren again. So many pit lane mistakes since he left.

    Feel sorry for di resta aswell

    Hardly surprising Hamilton gets annoyed with his crew at times. Fuel conserving with over 10 laps to go is ridiculous

    Nice big gap between Hamilton/Massa and Rosberg for the stewards to reverse the positions with a time penalty. Shame if they do but I'm waiting for the race control message to appear.

    I wonder if Hamilton will lose the place post race? It could be argued both ways.

    im gonna start piling my money on whoever eddie jordan thinks will win before the race as i dont think he's got one wrong yet!

    mixed day for the british lads at our home GP, shame really, jenson i was thinking myself had a chance on webber til it all went balls up but i think lewis can be happy with 4th after starting 10th and having to conserve at the end and di resta had a nightmare. :(

    the only thing lewis did 'wrong' was leaving his wheel in on the bend, massa should of known he would have and drove round he's hardly gonna back out in the last 2 corners of the race though is he?!

    I don't think either driver did anything wrong, purely a racing incident so would be harsh to punish either driver for it

    Gotta say it was a fantastic pass on Massa by button earlier in the race though.

    Agree 100% - even the Ferrari team principle said as much.

    Yeah, never have liked him for some reason. Did enjoy him squirming a bit post-race interview with Ted Kravitz. Webber reminded on the team radio who the No2 driver is. I'd love to get a transcript of the Red Bull radio for the last two laps.

    Noticed Fatty Arbuckle appeared again in the background, post-race - somehow managing to nurse that 2 day old pink shirt to the end of the race.

    Mark, maintain the gap!

    Maybe Horner should have got onto the radio to Vettel and said 'Webber is faster than you, do you understand?' :)

    Really enjoyable race

    Early doors the mixture of dry/wet conditions spiced things up. Hamilton provided good entertainment passing Button and Alonso... before losing the place again

    Button's high speed outside passing move on Massa was my highlight of the day. So close to touching and had to use a sliver of grass but made it stick. Great pass

    Schumacher had a mixed race and quite revealing post race he offered that the first time he used DRS was partly why he went into Kobayashi. Still good to see Mercedes overall looking better

    Rare to see so many high profile pit errors; missing wheel nut, stuck tyre, wrong tyres and unsafe releases. All in all a few of the crews will be putting the practice time in before Germany

    And to top it off still racing right to the end. Hamilton was quite fortunate to retain 4th and McLaren really need to bang some heads and evaluate how to improve massively for the next race

    Whilst from a purists p.o.v. the RBR team order was unseemly, watching the Forum, it was entirely understandable why the call was made. Very revealing though Webber ignored the call a few times. Of course there are massive rumours about driver changes for next season but Webber is the key for me. If he stays then no-one will move as if he is happy then RBR are happy with him

    Great race for Alonso and Ferrari, so-so for Massa. Poor guy being an afterthought. I get Alonso has first dibs on pit stop strategy but Massa was left hanging for 2-3 laps a time, whereas at other teams the drivers would come in on concurrent laps

    I can't believe I'm cheering Alonso on to victory :D I just don't want Seb to run away with it.

    Indeed,

    Did anyone else watch the F1 Forum? I found one moment when Lee McKenzie was interviewing Vettel absolutely hilarious.

    @ 46:50

    BBC iPlayer - Formula 1: 2011: The British Grand Prix: Forum


    Vettel – “she went like that” :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    How British of the GP to capture a Marshall emptying his flask of tea at the end of the race....

    Gave Martin & David a good laugh too :laugh:
