#F1 : Mixed Bag For Ferrari At Silverstone

by on July 10, 2012

After the British Grand Prix, I wrote an article for RichlandF1.com about how the day was somewhat bitter-sweet for Ferrari. 

A surprise pole position, the first since 2010, but in wet conditions and by the narrowest of margins meant it could have easily belonged to Webber or anyone else.  While Alonso lead much of the race in dry conditions, he really never ran away from the field.  There was always that feeling that he might be caught if he made a mistake or if a pit stop did not go smoothly.

After watching Fernando lose the lead and several positions in Canada like Michael Jackson doing the moon walk through the field, one feared (or hoped) the same might happen again.  Ferrari was on a different tyre strategy than Red Bull, and for the second time that weekend, it may have been the wrong one.  As some expected, in the closing stages of the race, Alonso lost the lead to a charging Bull driven by determined Mark Webber. 

So why bitter-sweet you might ask?  Click on the following link to the original article to read more: http://richlandf1.com/?p=2464
