British Grand Prix - Initial reaction

Posted by Posted by Grand Prix Blogger On 13:44

Well, what a shame. The hopes of a capacity crowd at Silverstone witnessing a superb home victory by Jenson Button have been dashed. Jenson never seemed to be in with a shout from Friday practice, but there was always the hope that he would find a balance that allowed him to challenge the might of Red Bull this weekend. All credit to him though for bagging a few points. Sebastian Vettel was in a class of his own this weekend and many congratulations to him on a superb dominant drive.

A mention must go to Lewis Hamilton who charged as hard as possible to give the home fans a thrill. It will be interesting to see if any action is taken by the FIA over his antics on the slow-down lap where he lit up his tyres and treated the crowd to a doughnut. I have to admire Hamilton for his constant acknowledgment of the crowd throughout the weekend, and he confirmed to all of us what a showman he really is - thanks Lewis. A closer look at the race will follow soon.
