GP Week : Issue 51
>>F1BRITAIN y nough for Toyota TOYOTA Motorsport President John Howett has told of his frustration at the result of the British Grand Prix. The team looked pacey in qualifying thanks to the latest updates to the car, but despite getting Jarno Trulli home in the points, Howett was unhappy. “Yesterday it looked quite encouraging in qualifying but in the race the pace didn’t look good,”he told GPWeek. “So we have to understand really why we weren’t as competitive as we would have liked. We just really need to sit down and understand why. Overall we’ve got a reasonable upgrade here, yesterday in quali pace was good but not really in the race and also a bad launch for Jarno.” Horner: RBR drivers were awesome RED Bull Racing Team Principal Christian Horner has praise Sebastian Vettel’s Silverstone win as “awesome”, following the German’s peerless performance at the British Grand Prix. Horner also praised the work of Vettel’s team-mate Mark Webber, and the whole Red Bull Racing team, which had redoubled its efforts to get a front end upgrade onto the RB5 in time for the race. “Basically we knew we had some good developments to come this weekend and it’s correlated with what we’ve seen in the wind tunnel,” he told GPWeek after the race. “It’s difficult to say how much the performance was worth, but definitely we’ve put some performance on the car.” Vettel’s win was created in the first stint of the race when on a heavy fuel load, he set a blistering pace that was at times over a second faster than any other driver. “It was awesome. It was an awesome stint,” Horner continued. “I think it looked even more awesome because Mark was stuck behind Barrichello, but he [Vettel] destroyed the opposition in that first stint and was then able to control the race from there. When Mark got into clean air he was, again, absolutely flying. His qualifying lap with Kimi getting in the way cost him dearly but he made up for it with another excellent drive.” Horner admitted that while Red Bull was taking the season race by race, their intention remains to chip away at Brawn’s current championship lead and to take the title fight to their rivals. “I think we’re going to treat each race as it comes and I’m sure we can be competitive for all the remaining grands prix and we’ve just got to keep trying to outscore them by three or four points at every race. “Today’s been a good points haul for the team, fantastic for all the members of the team to be here so close to their home, to see their cars achieve a one-two and I’m just so proud of the whole team and the effort they’ve put in. Today’s result was very fitting.” 29
