GP Week : Issue 213
Half way through the race you wouldn’t have given a jot for defending race winner sebastian Vettel’s chances of scoring a point. Having started from pit lane and struggled to make any progress early on, it was only when the track appeared to change a little, after the switch to Mediums, that the second Red Bull started to fly. The late change to a fresh set of softs was a successful gamble, and seb was able to mow down a group of battlers on old tyres, to finish seventh. up front, Daniel Ricciardo was recovering, but only from a bad start. His charge through to third was one of the race highlights – given the horsepower still lacking from the Renault. The issue from here on is going ton be engines, or lack of them, as Renault sport ’s Thierry salvi alluded to in his post-race report: "Daniel delivered another great result for the team today after starting fifth, dropping down to seventh and charging back to finish third. There were some great overtaking moves at a circuit where top-end horsepower is critical. “L ikewise seb, who started from the pits and fought back superbly. He struggled a lot with the car during his first stint, but then came alive as the fuel load dropped. There were no problems with his Power unit either, which helped him fight his way back up to seventh on the option tyre at the end. “It's now a question of being able to complete the final two races with these Power units. Reliability is obviously key and we'll be looking at everything in order to preserve them." RB: different ends of the spectrum 28 GPWEEK.com // 28 GPWEEK.com // F1 >>> USA PARTNERS:
