GP Week : Issue 160
w BRIEFLY » It seemed as though half the F1 paddock – past and present – had gathered at Glorious Goodwood for the weekend’s Festival of Speed. Making an appearance at the popular annual event, described as the world’s only motoring garden party, was a long list of Formula One names: Jenson Button, Karun Chandhok, Eddie Cheever, Martin Donnelly, Emerson Fittipaldi driving a Lotus 72, Marc Gene, Lewis Hamilton, Nick Heidfeld, Jacky Ickx, Heikki Kovalainen, Jochen Mass, Stirling Moss behind the wheel of a Lotus 18, Alan McNish showing off an Audi R18 e-tron Quattro, Adrian Newey, Emmanuel Pirro, Alain Prost, Nico Rosberg, Jackie Stewart, John Surtees, Sebastian Vettel, and Mark Webber all took their turn up the hill for the fans. » The on-again, off-again Silverstone Young Drivers’ Test is officially on, with three teams confirming this week that they would be running at the British circuit in the week following the grand prix. Williams, Marussia, and HRT will be running on the Thursday and Friday following the British Grand Prix, to accommodate the Formula Student race taking place the following weekend. Talks are currently on-going to determine whether testing can begin on Wednesday, as it is believed that a three-day test would entice more teams to take part. McLaren and Red Bull have long said that they intend to run their YDT at the end of the season, and have budgeted accordingly. » GPWEEK extends its congratulations to Romain Grosjean and Marion Jollès, who married on Wednesday in a private ceremony in Chamonix. Fernando Alonso may be on top of the drivers’ championship standings thanks to his impressive drive to victory from P11 on the grid at last week’s European Grand Prix, but Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo has warned the team not to rest on their laurels. “I am worried, and all of us should be,” he was quoted as saying on the Ferrari website. “Yes, I am worried, because I expect three very tough races at Silverstone, Hockenheim and Budapest, and because we have seen that Red Bull is very strong, having had four-tenths in hand over everyone in qualifying. And in the race it was flying away, at least until the Safety Car. “If we want to achieve our goals, then we must make a step for ward. It's thanks to your work, to an extraordinary driver who, not by chance, drives for Ferrari, to the strategy, the pit stops and the efforts of everyone at the track and back home, that we find ourselves leading the championship, even if we don't have the best car. Now we must ensure we do everything as well as possible because winning depends solely and exclusively on us. “It would be a big mistake to think the win in Valencia means we have done enough. Today we have a competitive car, but to win, we must do even more. I don't want outsiders to think that one win is enough for us to put on a fireworks display. I know how much you are working, how many sacrifices have been made, but I am the first to know that all of us, without exception, must still give something more. Let's remember for a few more minutes that we are leading the world championship, then let's get back to work.” While Alonso has been highly praised for his performances this season, team-mate Felipe Massa has been struggling to bring home the points that would help the Scuderia challenge for the constructors’ title this season. The F2012 started life as one of the least competitive cars on the grid, but in the hands of Alonso became the first car to win two grands prix in what has been the most chaotic Formula One season in recent memory.
