Red Bull is definitely reclaiming the title fight with yet another 1-2 race start for tomorrow’s British Grand Prix at the Silverstone circuit. Red Bull’s front row lock-down is headed by Sebastian Vettel, who just came back from a pole and a subsequent win in Valencia. His Australian team mate Mark Webber secured second place while Ferrari seems to be back at the front with Fernando Alonso’s third place.
McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton who is currently leading the Driver’s Championship settled in fourth place ahead of Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg and Renault’s Robert Kubica. Felipe Massa in the other Ferrari will start the race from seventh place in front of former Ferrari driver Rubens Barrichello who now races for Williams.
Sauber made it into the top ten with Pedro de la Rosa’s ninth place and highly-decorated Michael Schumacher only managed tenth place. The 7-times World Champion, who has been spending most of the time behind his younger compatriot so far in the season later revealed that he made some mistakes in Q3 that caused him to register unsatisfying lap times.
Lotus Racing is still the top new team as the green-yellow squad managed 19th place, thanks to Heikki Kovalainen’s 1:34.405 lap time. Behind the Finn is Virgin’s Timo Glock, ahead of Lotus’ Jarno Trulli who gave his seat to Fairuz Fauzy for Friday’s first practice session. Next up in 22nd is Lucas di Grassi in the sister Virgin race car. The final two positions were taken up by the Hispania drivers: Karun Chandhok and Sakon Yamamoto who takes over the wheel from Bruno Senna.
