FROM THE COCKPIT The 2013 BRITISH Grand Prix in the drivers’ own words... NICO ROSBERG “This is a great moment for me and our team to win in the home of mo- tor racing at silverstone. We have such great momentum in our silver Arrows team and I'm very proud to be part of it. This win is for every sin- gle person who has been involved in building our car. It was a shame for Lewis today, and I had also a problem with my tyre but I was lucky be- cause of the safety Car. It was so special to win today, especially in front of fellow team members and their families as our factory is only ten minutes away from the track. The race was really exciting. I had to man- age the tyres really carefully, I was told to avoid the kerbs. At the end, it was difficult to hold Mark and to look after my tyres but I was able to keep the position, and take a great victory for us.” MARK WEBBER “What a day! I don’t think any of us expected it to unfold like this. The start was pretty bad; we have to look into that as we had had a good run of starts recently. Then I had contact with Grosjean and the wing was damaged; the boys did a great job in the stop when they changed it. After that we got into the race. I was praying for a safety car, but not for the reason they were coming, as you knew you could be next. When you have something like that, it’s Russian Roulette. When you see that many tyre issues for the fellow competitors then it’s never comforting. I made the most of those safety cars – and today the strategy was one of the best we’ve done. I think it worked very, very well.” FERNANDO ALONSO “If I’d been told this morning that I would have ended up on the podi- um, I would not have believed it possible. Yesterday in qualifying, we fin- ished a long way down and our expectations for this race were to aim for a fifth or sixth place, hoping to score as many points as possible. Af- ter some negative experiences, today we can say we were lucky on a few occasions, beginning with Perez and then at the first stop with a completely worn out tyre – fortunately at the last corner – and then with Vettel’s retirement. At the end of a difficult weekend, it was unimagina- ble that we could make up so much ground, but now we must try and improve, starting with the very next race in Germany.” 36 GPWEEK.com // 36 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: F1 >>> GREAT BRITAIN
