UP AND DOWN FOR RED BULL IN VALENCIA


Car 5 SEBASTIAN VETTEL, Finish Position: WINNER, Start Position: 1st
“It’s good to be back winning and on a circuit where we didn’t expect to be that strong. But we were quick enough at all times in the race to pull away, find the gap and then guide the car home, but it wasn’t as easy as expected. It’s good to get a lot of Championship points and the guys can be extremely proud, so a good weekend for them. Most important of all today is the fact that Mark had quite a big shunt but he’s fine - it shows that the cars get safer and safer but still there is a lot of risk so it’s good that he’s OK.”

Grand Prix of Europe

null
27th June 2010
Eighth and eleventh place is definitely not the result which Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro was expecting going into this European Grand Prix. Starting from fourth and fifth places on the grid, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa had each made up one place, to be right up with the leaders at the moment when the race was neutralised after an accident involving Webber and Kovalainen. Having completed almost an entire lap behind the Safety Car, the two Ferrari men came in for a double pit stop and then found themselves in the middle of the pack, in tenth and fifteenth places respectively: their chances of a good result were over from then on. The rest of the race was a case of sitting in traffic at a track where overtaking is almost impossible.

2010 EUROPEAN GRAND PRIX – SUNDAY


27/06/10
WAITING FOR GODOT…in the Stewards’ room
Sebastien Buemi (STR5-02) Pos. 8th
“This was not a very good race as I could have finished sixth, but I made two mistakes, which have cost us four points. I am happy to be in the points, but disappointed to have missed out on the opportunity to do better. As for losing seventh place, I knew Kobayashi was closing very quickly on new tyres, and on the penultimate lap I was blocking my front tyres a lot. But at the final corner, I did not think he could brake that late and so I am unhappy that I made the mistake and let him pass. The team did a good job of the pit stop, at just the right moment during the Safety Car period. But we are under investigation along with many other cars about this point of the race. I found it very hard to slow down, as required by the rules, because the Safety Car arrived very late as we approached the start finish line. Let’s wait and see what the stewards will say.”

MARTIN WHITMARSH , Team principal, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes
“Speaking before the stewards have finished their deliberations, I suppose I have to say I’m reasonably pleased with this afternoon’s events. Short of a win, second and third is pretty good – especially so when you bear in mind that we’d brought only a modest set of modifications here whereas some of the other top teams had introduced substantial upgrades.

Red Bull Racing has secured Pole and P2 for tomorrow’s European Grand Prix


Success for us at a Valencia track which hasn't been the scene of much celebration in the past.
In fact, "pretty shitty" were the words Mark Webber used to describe his two previous races in Valencia, but after qualifying in P2 for tomorrow's race, behind team-mate Sebastian Vettel, he's confident of scratching it from his 'bogey circuit' list.

Back To The Front: A One-Two On The Valencia Grid


Car 5 SEBASTIAN VETTEL, Position: Pole
“Valencia isn’t usually - or shouldn’t be - our strongest circuit so it’s good that we are able to put the car on pole and I think our pace is looking very good. It was a tight qualifying session, and a tough one especially as we reintroduced the F-duct and I think some of the mechanics had maybe an hour or two’s sleep last night, so it’s good to say thank you by putting the cars on one and two. We’re now in a very strong position to start tomorrow’s race.”

26/06/10
Sebastien Buemi: “It’s my best qualifying result of the season and I did not expect to do so well before the start of the session, which is a reason to be pleased. On the other hand, I am a bit disappointed because Barrichello was ahead of me going into the final corner on my last flying lap and he really slowed me down. He was on his slowing down lap, but it cost me two tenths which should have seen me finish higher than eleventh. To be honest, I’m not sure why the car worked so well today, because we have not changed anything since Canada. It proves the team is doing a fine job. It’s good to start from further up the grid than usual, right in the middle of the pack, which means I have every chance of having a good race, even if it will be very difficult to overtake.”

Valencia, Saturday June 26
MARTIN WHITMARSH, Team principal, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes
“Fast and committed qualifiers that they both are, Lewis and Jenson pushed as hard as possible in Q3 today. However, they both made small errors on their final laps. Lewis’s mistake probably made no difference to his eventual grid position, because the single-lap performance gap to the Red Bulls is quite significant here, but Jenson looked to have P4 in the bag had he negotiated the final corner of his last lap as well as he’d driven the previous turns.

“Overall a good day, we did a lot of laps, we didn’t have any problem with the car so we could follow our programme like it should be on a Friday. We need to see if we keep the F-duct in the car, we need to confirm that, but all in all I think the pace was promising today considering this shouldn’t be our strongest track. We did a step forward with the whole car - it was a good day for us.”

(STR5-02)
“We had a trouble free day, which is always important, so I am happy with that. It was an interesting day, because between the morning and the afternoon, we saw the biggest improvement in lap time that we have had so far this season. That makes life quite difficult, because as the grip improved very quickly, you had to find the confidence to make use of it immediately, which is different to what we are used to. We have a reasonably good understanding of tyre behaviour after doing the long stint. Now we have to see where we can improve for tomorrow and overall the work we did today was not too bad.”

Valencia, Spain 22nd June 2010
Tony Fernandes: “Celebrating the 500th race will be an absolute honour, and will obviously be very special, but we’re only nine races of the whole Lotus story. Really, this weekend is all about celebrating Colin Chapman’s history, and thanking Clive, his Mother Hazel, and all the people that have helped shape the Lotus legend. I’m thrilled that some of the people that were part of the original story are with us today, and I’m proud we’ve been able to take the total number of races Lotus has taken part in to 500 and beyond – hopefully we’ll be celebrating 1,000 races one day, and can look back on a legacy that pays true homage to that we’re celebrating this weekend – the legacy of Colin Chapman, his family, his cars and his team.”

Back To Spain Once Again...


Round nine of the world championship takes us to Valencia for the third time in the history of the sport, to a street circuit built around the harbour used as a base for the Americas Cup yacht race.

The Mediterranean waters around the third largest city in Spain are presumably ideal for sailors to go about tacking to port, hoisting the mainsail and pulling their spinnaker sheets, but the roads that make up the track have so far failed to deliver much excitement of a motorsport variety. It’s similar in some ways to the aquatic venue we left behind in Montreal a fortnight ago, in that it has some quick bits with slow corners that therefore put a premium on good brakes and traction, but so far, the magic has been missing.

Vitaly Petrov: “I'm focusing on what's ahead.”
Vitaly, you had a tough weekend in Canada. What did you learn?
First of all, I know I made mistakes in the race – at the start, I took a risk by moving onto the grass, it didn't work and I was given the drive-through penalty. But it was still important to finish the race because it always gives you much more information, particularly about how to look after the tyres in different conditions. I will take that experience with me, and I will know better how to handle certain situations in the future. But the bad result is in the past for me now; it's time to focus on what's ahead.

Friday 25 to Sunday 27 June, 2010
Valencia Street Circuit, Spain
Round: 9 of 19
Sam Michael, Technical Director
From Montreal we're moving back to Europe and to the fourth street circuit of the year. Valencia has been a welcome addition to the calendar since it joined the schedule in 2008. The 5.4km lap is made up of 25 corners, which should conspire to make a tight and twisty track, but instead the drivers actually get into quite a good rhythm around Valencia. Speeds tend to average out around the lap at around 200kph.

European Grand Prix Preview


Once again the rule that no country may host more than one round of the Formula One World Championship is circumnavigated by the clever expedient of giving one race the title ‘European Grand Prix’. That’s what’s now happens in Spain, as apart from the national race in Barcelona, we now have this extra event in Valencia. And, along with Singapore later in the year, it means we now have two more street races to make Monaco a little bit less unique. If the crowds seem a bit thin on the first couple of days of the weekend, it might have something to do with the fact Valencia already boasts a perfectly acceptable permanent race circuit, which is a favourite for winter testing, so the organisers would do well to post someone at the main gate to explain to spectators they house the Americas Cup, so it comes complete with some radically designed hospitality areas.

Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team, looking forward to making its debut in Valencia, its second home Grand Prix of the season, and fighting for positions again


Valencia, Saturday 19 June 2010
Hispania Racing, HRT F1 Team, is looking forward to its second home Grand Prix of the year, at the Valencia Street Circuit. For the third time since 2008, this Valencia track is the venue for the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe. With a total length of 5.419 km and 25 corners, the Valencia track is a unique street circuit where most of the action is carried out along the water’s edge of the Juan Carlos I Marina: skimming past the quay, through the port and the historic fish market, along the docks and shipyard gates, and briefly following the course of the River Turia. The construction of the City of Arts and Sciences by architect Santiago Calatrava and the fact that the city’s marina was the base of the 32nd America’s Cup in 2007, the most important sailing competition in the world, make Valencia a fashionable destination of the Mediterranean.

Canadian GP Debrief with Steve Nielsen


Steve, the team left Turkey frustrated by a P6 finish, and now leaves Canada very disappointed with P7. Is that a measure of your growing expectations?
In Canada, we re-learned the same lessons about going racing in 2010: it's all about where you qualify, making a good start and the pitstops. We didn't get the best out of the car in qualifying, and that makes the hill you have to climb even steeper than it would otherwise have been.

But it was a case of what might have been as Tonio was pushed wide at the first corner after the start and forced to pit for a new front wing, while Adrian picked up a puncture while fighting with Robert Kubica on lap 27. Both incidents relegated them to the rear of the field, however the pair refused to give up and fought to the end to give Force India a further three constructors' points.

CANADIAN GRAND PRIX RACE


SUNDAY 13 JUNE, 2010
Having made a clear step forward in car performance this weekend, the AT&T Williams team was unable to realise its potential with both Rubens and Nico suffering car damage that forced unscheduled stops during this afternoon’s race. Running a split strategy by starting Nico on the prime tyre and Rubens on the option, the team had both the pace and tactical options to claim points today before early first stint accidents involving both cars pushed the team outside of the top ten.

GOOD DAY'S WORK IN CANADA


Montréal, Canada 13th June 2010
The Canadian Grand Prix made good on its promise of providing the best race of the season so far, and Lotus Racing put in a great day’s work to see Heikki Kovalainen finish the race 16th, ahead of Petrov’s Renault, after a great battle on track in what proved to be punishing conditions for the tyres for the whole field. Jarno Trulli, who had been showing quick pace right from the start, pulled over on lap 42 after a vibration at the front end led to a problem with the braking system that put paid to his race.

Canadian GP – Race


Sunday, 13.06.2010
Weather: sunny and dry, 25-26°C air, 37-39°C track
In what was a thrilling Canadian Grand Prix with great motor racing. Kamui Kobayashi and Pedro de la Rosa played a rather insignificant role. Kobayashi, coming from 18th on the grid, retired in an incident on lap one after he made a remarkably good start and was fighting for ninth on the back straight. De la Rosa (17th on the grid) was hit by another car on the first lap and had to pit for a new nose. But he managed to recover and raced in 13th before he retired with an engine failure which has yet to be analysed.

Friday 11 June 2010
The first session at Montreal always takes place on a dirty track, and today was no exception. The sun was out for the start of the session, but the temperature slowly came down, becoming quite chilly by the end. Both drivers reported issues with grip and for quite a while there was very little track action. The team focused on gaining valuable aero data, however Lucas’ morning was cut short by a problem with the brakes on the front left of the car and he had to sit out most of the session.

The Canadian Grand Prix got underway with a busy work schedule on the first day for Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro. Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa completed a total of 110 laps of the “Gilles Villeneuve” circuit: 56 for the Spaniard and two fewer for the Brazilian. “This weekend has got off on the right foot for us, as we have worked well and shown that we are more competitive than in Turkey two weeks ago,” commented Stefano Domenicali. “Having said that, we are well aware that Friday’s times do not mean much because there are so many unknown factors that have an influence on them. Now we face an afternoon and a night of work analysing all the data we have gathered. Then, starting with tomorrow’s qualifying we will try and confirm the step forward that we have glimpsed today.”

11 - 13 June 2010

8 June 2010 - After picking up its seventh points scoring finish in last weekend's thrilling Turkish Grand Prix the Force India F1 Team is now looking forward to round eight of the FIA Formula One World Championship, the Canadian Grand Prix. Making a welcome return to the calendar after a year's absence, the Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve is a challenging mix of long straights and tight hairpins that require a low downforce aero configuration, which should suit the VJM03 well.

Mastering Montreal


The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal is one of the most unusual circuits on the F1 calendar. With a mix of long straights and low-speed chicanes hemmed in by unforgiving concrete walls, it's a bit like combining Monaco with Monza and therefore poses some unique challenges for car set-up.

Robert Kubica: “I think the car will be strong in Canada”

null
Robert, you continued your run of points finishes in Turkey. Were you happy with the performance of the car?
It was a good race and I enjoyed driving the car. We had some balance issues in practice, but I had a much better feeling with the car during the race. The only disappointment was that we didn't get ahead of Mercedes because we are still missing a couple of tenths in order to beat them in qualifying.

Christian Horner: Turkish GP Debrief


Q: What happened on lap 40 of the Turkish GP?
CH: We had a unique situation during the Turkish GP where the first four cars were separated by two seconds, with Mark having led every lap until lap 40. The race was the fastest of the season to date with all four drivers pushing each other extremely hard. On lap 38, Mark changed his mixture setting based on his fuel consumption to a slightly leaner mode, which had an average lap time loss of about 0.18 seconds, whilst maintaining the same revs.

This is the race that breaks all the rules of modern Formula 1: the paddock is tiny and cramped, the circuit itself is second only to Monaco for giving the Health ‘n Safety folk a coronary and, whisper it, Montreal itself is such a great city, you might actually see drivers out on the town at night, rather than lying on their hotel beds “visualising” the best line through the hairpin.

Hinwil, 3rd June 2010 – Kamui Kobayashi had a difficult start to what will be his first full season in Formula One. He suffered from technical problems, and was the innocent victim in accidents which forced him to retire from five out of the first six races. But in the seventh Grand Prix he hopes he has seen the light at the end of the tunnel. By finishing tenth in Istanbul the 23-year-old Japanese scored the team’s first championship point of the season.
