German GP of 2010


Ive been watching the free practice, I don’t know for sure if it’s the track layout suiting them better or if they have improved their car but Ferrari seem to be very quick this year in Germany along with the RedBull’s.

This RedBull v Ferrari battle is fascinating.

Also the Mercedes seem to be quite quick too, only just behind RedBull and Ferrari and the McLaren seems to be around about the same pace as the Mercedes

The weather might play a part in this one, it could be wet for Qualifying and maybe the race.

Looking forward to a great F1 race weekend.

Re: German GP of 2010


The Ferraris are looking very strong in qualifing at Hockenheim with Alonso and Massa 2nd and 3rd on the grid. Vettel manages pole and Button beats Hamilton.
Click here for qualifing results.

I just hope the Ferraris race pace isn't too good 'cos the Mclarens normally have good race pace but they're running the blown diffuser for the 1st time.

Looking forward to a good race...

Re: German GP of 2010


Ferrari one-two but alot of controversy over what way round. Massa was leading all race but gave up 1st place to Alonso after being 'instructed' to by team.

This result still stands but Ferrari has been fined $100,000 for breaking the rules.

Red Bulls and Mclarens making up the top 6. Results

And Driver Standings

All in all an ok race. Bit of a procession after 1st and only pit stop. Ferraris dominant and championship still wide open.

And found this snippet...

The decision will also be forwarded to the WMSC for its consideration, meaning Ferrari could in theory face further sanctions.

So this hasn't been put to bed yet.

Re: German GP of 2010


$100,000 sounds like a bargain to me, if come the end of the season the points gained today mean Ferrari win the championship with Alonso it has to be a price worth paying and probably wouldn’t stop them doing it again.

Good to see Ferrari back to its old ways, some winning and plenty of controversy. It wouldn’t be F1 without them.

Hamilton still leading the championship.   Grin

Re: German GP of 2010


McLaren driver Jenson Button has spoken out against team orders. "If I was told my team-mate is faster I would keep driving and hope he doesn't overtake me," he commented.

Re: German GP of 2010


But you know Massa knew what was meant by 'Alonso is faster then you'.

He didn't want to do it, (I assume this by his manner and his 'I'd be happy if I'd one' comment) he took one for the team.

We can only hope Alonso has a horrible, non fatal accident.  Shocked Grin

What goes around comes around, in the end there will be payback in one form or another. I believe.  Shocked
