FORMULA 1 | FERNANDO ALONSO WINS 2011 BRITISH GRAN PRIX

Great day for SPANISH SPORTS with the victory of Spanish two time F1 World Champion FERNANDO ALONSO adding the 2011 British F1 GP title at Silverstone. Long time since the driver got back in the top of the podium as the Spaniard got his first win of the season & finally managed to break the domination of current World Champ Vettel & the Red Bull cars.

Fernando Alonso

Awkward race with all four seasons being experienced at once at the track. It started wet, then humid & finished dry & that made for lots of pits stops & strategy changes. In the 2º pit stop Vettel had some problems getting out of boxes as Alonso passed by after his tyre change & the Spaniard never looked back except for a one on one Hamilton battle that Alonso managed to dominate. There was some great racing between all top four finishers Vettel, Webber & Hamilton ( in that order ) as they attempted to win places with some on edge driving in difficult conditions.

Ferrari has definately bettered the car with new pieces & the huge gap with Red Bull has been pulled back. Although Vettel looks unreachable in the World Championship points table, the Ferrari cars will sure be able to give Vettel - Webber some more tough afternoons in coming races.


Current Word Championship table:

1. Sebastian Vettel (GER/Red Bull) 204pts
2. Mark Webber (AUS/Red Bull) 124.
3. Fernando Alonso (SP/Ferrari) 112.
4. Lewis Hamilton (GB/McLaren) 109.
5. Jenson Button (GB/McLaren) 109
