British GP - An unexpected result


Stefano Domenicali: “We came to Silverstone with considerably different expectations in terms of performance to those we demonstrated this weekend and now our main objective is to immediately get an understanding of why we are in this situation. If we want to continue to fight for the championship, it is vital that we improve the car, because in performance terms, our rivals have made a further step forward. Today, the points table matches the target we had set ourselves, which was to reduce the gap before the summer break. Both Fernando and Felipe drove amazing races and the team was able to manage the tyre problems in the best way possible. Now, there is little time to react and we can expect a busy few days in the run up to the German Grand Prix and we must use these days to look ahead, working calmly and steadily to find the answers to the questions that have been thrown up by this weekend”.

TYRE FAILURES TO BE CLOSELY EXAMINED


NEW BONDING PROCESS NOT AT FAULT

Silverstone, June 30, 2013 – Nico Rosberg has given Mercedes its first victory in the British Grand Prix since 1955 with first place at Silverstone.

The were a number of rear-left tyre failures during the race, which affected Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, Felipe Massa (Ferrari), Jean-Eric Vergne (Toro Rosso) and Sergio Perez (McLaren). Pirelli engineers will investigate closely the cause of the failures ahead of next week’s German Grand Prix.

British Grand Prix: Team Reaction


Daniel Ricciardo (STR8-04), Race Position: 8th
“That was a chaotic race, but for most of it I was in a reasonably strong position. I didn’t get the best of starts, but managed to make up for that, however I then lost a bit of time at both pit stops. Towards the end of the race, I had a very good pace but I think we might have done better with a different strategy when the last Safety Car came out as prior to that I could match the Force India and the Ferraris. At the end we were on used tyres and those who changed for a third time were able to pass me. Eighth is a good result, but I see it as a missed opportunity to score more points, because today we were quicker than the Ferraris so to finish behind them, particularly Massa who had a tyre problem, is a bit disappointing. I don’t know what was happening with the tyres, as I kept seeing people going off the track and there was debris everywhere. It was a little bit dangerous and we need to look into it. For my part, I just had normal degradation.”

Sunday 30 June 2013

Car 2 MARK WEBBER, Finish Position: 2nd, Start Position: 4th
“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. I worked hard to manipulate the pace when I had to and then it was Nico and I left at the end. It would have been nice to have had a few more laps, but that’s how it was today. It was nearly a really special day, but it was still a nice day.”

British GP - Unsolved puzzles


Fernando Alonso: “This weekend has been complicated for us by problems that we haven’t managed to get on top of, concerning various aspects such as the balance of the car, its driveability and performance. We can consider this the worst Saturday of the season so far, having never finished so far down, but now we must react immediately to try and return to the form we showed at the start of the year. We definitely expected a lot more here, because this is a track that suits our car’s characteristics better than others. In Q3, we hesitated a bit over tyre choice: we went out on the Hards because they had worked well in free practice this morning and in Q1. Then we switched to Medium with the idea of just coming back to the pits if it did not go well but then we decided to finish the lap and nevertheless our rivals were quicker. Now, we must try to do the same, starting from tomorrow: even if the race will be an uphill struggle we are well aware how things can change during a race. We hope we can stage a good climb up the order and bring home as many points as possible”.

British Grand Prix: Qualifying - Team Reaction


Daniel Ricciardo (STR8-04)
“Coming off the back of a bad couple of races, I expected to be strong here and I was more motivated than ever. However, if I’d been told I could be sixth this afternoon, I would have been surprised. We were very close to Di Resta in fifth, but we can be happy with this position. We showed good pace all weekend, including this morning when I was sixth, so it was nice to confirm that this afternoon. Now I am looking forward to the race when I hope I can come away with a good handful of points. I’d like to think I could finish at least in the same place I am starting from. It would be nice to do even better and I will be pushing hard to achieve that. I believe it will be a few degrees warmer tomorrow, which could make the track conditions change quite a lot. This is a very demanding circuit with lots of high speed corners, so the tyres don’t get much of a rest, therefore tyre wear will be an important factor tomorrow.”

Either Lewis found a short cut or he has something special round here, it was a phenomenal lap and he wasn’t in reach today. I was very happy with the lap I did at the end, it was very close with Mark also. We did what we could for the team and it’s always nice to position well in qualifying, especially around here – qualifying is good fun and I’m enjoying the high speed corners. We’ll see how we get on with the tyres tomorrow and with looking after them. I’m happy for the team today, our factory is very close to this track, so I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”

British GP - The weather didn't help


Fernando Alonso: “This morning, we lost the first session because of the rain and had to squeeze all the work we had been unable to do into the afternoon session. Our programme for today was no different to usual and as normal, it was important to gather data relating to tyre behaviour, which here too will be the key factor. At Silverstone, you need an aerodynamic package that is suited to the combination of fast corners that are the main feature at this track. The strategy will have to be impeccable and in order to make the right choice for the race, we will have to take into account the fact that on Sunday we can expect very different conditions to those we saw today, because the track will definitely be drier and the temperatures higher”.

2013 British Grand Prix – Practice Sessions


TEAMS TEST PROTOTYPE HARD TYRE AFTER RAIN AT SILVERSTONE
Silverstone, June 28, 2013 – After a wet start to the day, the drivers eventually got the chance to test Pirelli’s new prototype hard compound in the afternoon, which is the same compound that was used during free practice in Spain.

Just like Canada, the first free practice session was characterised by rain, which meant that there was little running and most of the limited action that did take place happened on Cinturato Blue full wet tyres.

An Almost Dry Afternoon


If you get to use five different types of tyre in a single day, you can usually assume you are either at Silverstone or Spa-Francorchamps.

The English venue lived up to its reputation and delivered a soaking wet morning, followed by an afternoon session where it was dry enough for slicks after a brief overture on Intermediates. So apart, from the two types of rain tyre, Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne also managed to evaluate the Hard Prime, the Medium Option and an experimental Hard that Pirelli had brought here, which features a stiffer construction.

2013 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX – FREE PRACTICE



“A difficult day, but a step forward”
Silverstone, Friday June 28
MARTIN WHITMARSH, Team principal, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes
“We do seem to have been affected by an unusually high number of rained-out Friday practice sessions this year. While it’s the same for everyone, it can be frustrating when you’re trying to run through a large and intensive programme of testing.
While we were able to get quite a lot of mileage under our belts, there’s still plenty of work left to do. It’s been a difficult day, but with drier weather forecast for the next two days, we’re hopeful of making progress.”

Second Practice Session: Position: 3, Best Time: 1:32.680, Laps: 31
“I think overall we can be pretty happy, it was a good day. Obviously it was important to get some laps in the dry as we expect dry conditions on Sunday. Now we need to have a look at what we can improve, have a look what the others did and then we’ll know a little bit more for tomorrow. Today we tried to do both short and long runs. For FP3 tomorrow, we need to decide if we go for short runs, to prepare for qualifying, or long runs trying to look more at the race set up.”

Santander British Grand Prix – Practice


Friday, 28.06.2013
Weather: rain, then dry 17-21°C air, 16-20°C track

As expected Silverstone lived up to expectations with bad weather and welcomed the drivers with a wet FP1 this morning, which left spectators waiting for track action. During the second practice session conditions were still not ideal, but improved enough so the Sauber F1 Team drivers could run through the main items of the programme. Nico Hülkenberg also managed to get a few laps on the new prototype tyre compound that Pirelli had provided to all teams today. Especially in the long runs, there is still some room for improvement.

It was won by Giuseppe “Nino” Farina in an Alfa Romeo, the combination that a few months later would also win the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, which along with the British event has been staged the most times, reaching the 64th edition this year.

Canadian GP – A Sunday that became sad


Maranello, 10 June – Monza in 2000, Melbourne in 2001 and now Montreal. In the final phase of yesterday’s Canadian Grand Prix a marshal suffered fatal injuries after being run over by a crane that was removing Gutierrez’s Sauber. “There can be no reason to celebrate,” tweeted a sad Alonso when he heard the news and he is absolutely right. The winners and losers from this seventh round of the championship, along with the workers and the fans who watched the race from the grandstands or on television are all thinking of someone who lost their life in an absurd way while involved in what was surely their passion, racing. Indeed, without the work of people like him, events like Formula 1 grands prix could not even take place. Ferrari wishes to express its condolences for the death of this track marshal too: we are doing it here, via the internet, to invite everyone who shares our passion for motor sport to be thinking of the family and friends of the victim.

Canadian GP - A racing fight back


Stefano Domenicali: “Today, we absolutely had to make up for the difficult day we had yesterday, because we knew the more normal weather would allow us to demonstrate our true potential. The podium was in our sights and we can claim to have hit the target, in a race that was complicated from start to finish by our grid positions. Fernando produced an absolutely extraordinary performance, especially when taking into account that today, our competitors operated at a really high level. Felipe also showed exactly what he could do: managing to bring home points after starting from the back was the best response to those who felt he was affected by the unfortunate incidents of the last few days. I must congratulate the winners, because even if it’s easier to get the job done when starting at the front, it’s also true that they managed to produce a perfect qualifying, a task which we know we must improve on. Today’s race demonstrated how two of our closest rivals, Red Bull and Mercedes, have managed to make a step forward and that’s the same direction we are working in, so that we can be contenders right to the end of the Championship”.

Canadian Grand Prix: Team Reaction


Jean-Eric Vergne (STR8-03)
Race Position: 6th
“Incredible! I’m very happy. The best result for me of course, but also the highest finishing position since Vettel’s results for the team in 2008. It is even more satisfying, because it was a normal race in the dry, with no one going out in front of me so we achieved this position fair and square. It’s a great result for the team as we are making progress race by race and it’s very encouraging for the rest of the season. It wasn’t too complicated, because we had the pace to maintain that position, although we did not have the speed of those ahead. I passed Bottas and Raikkonen and from then I managed my race, keeping an eye on Sutil who was behind me for much of the time. That meant I could never ease up until the flag.

Race Notes
• Valtteri Bottas finished 14th and Pastor Maldonado 16th in today’s Canadian Grand Prix.
• Starting from third on the grid, Valtteri struggled to match the pace of the front runners in the first stint on the supersoft tyres. Pastor also suffered high tyre degradation and then was compromised further by an early collision with Sutil which led to a drive-through penalty.
• The team will take positives from its performance in qualifying yesterday and will be working hard to improve the overall pace of the FW35 in time for its home race at the British Grand Prix.

CANADIAN GP – RACE


Sunday 9 June 2013

Car 1 SEBASTIAN VETTEL, Finish Position: WINNER, Start Position: 1st
“It’s great to win today. I was pushing very hard, especially at the beginning of the race – I had a moment when I hit the wall, but I didn’t feel it; I was trying to get away from the field, as you don’t know what will happen towards the end. It turned out that we could control things in the later stages, but you don’t know that, so I was just trying to push all the time and stay in the rhythm. It was good to see that we were quick in all conditions this weekend and had speed in the race. We had average tyre wear, which hasn’t always been the case for us, so we have made a step forward there. It’s nice to win here, as it’s a very special race. Not just the track, but the whole city enjoys the race and it’s a nice atmosphere.”

Canadian GP - An unpredictable qualifying


Fernando Alonso: “We were well aware how difficult this weekend could be, because with such changeable weather, the track can change from one lap to the next and right to the end, you can never be sure what are the right tyres to use. I am reasonably happy to have salvaged what I could from a qualifying that featured so many unknowns. Starting from sixth here isn’t bad, because you can overtake at this circuit. I’m definitely hoping for a race with no rain, because in the dry, looking at yesterday’s long runs, we can be more competitive and quicker than some of the cars that start in front of us tomorrow. The aim is still to make up ground on our closest competitors: with Raikkonen we have a slightly better chance of doing so, as he is starting behind me, while with Vettel, it’s a tougher task. In any case, I won’t take anything for granted, because here, especially if it rains, anything can happen and it can be the case that strategy counts for less than luck does”.

2013 Canadian Grand Prix, Saturday


Saturday 8th June 2013

Kimi Räikkönen will start from ninth on the grid and Romain Grosjean a distant 29th - or thereabouts - after a hectic qualifying session for the Canadian Grand Prix. Following a shortened morning practice session, qualifying was wet throughout with a brief red flag period nearing the end of Q2.

Romain was a victim of unfortunate timing as a yellow flag affected one fast lap in Q1, and an increasingly wet track prevented another. He qualified 19th, meaning he will start from the back of the 22-car grid once his ten-place grid penalty is factored in.

2013 Canadian Grand Prix – Qualifying


CINTURATO GREEN INTERMEDIATE STARS IN CANADA QUALIFYING

Montreal, June 8, 2013 – For the second consecutive race weekend, qualifying was held in mixed conditions. Unlike Monaco though, none of the drivers were able to use the slick tyres consistently, meaning that the Cinturato Green intermediate tyres were used almost exclusively from start to finish during all three sessions. Some drivers attempted a lap on the P Zero Red supersoft – nominated together with the P Zero White medium tyre this weekend – at the very start of Q1, but conditions proved to be too wet.

Canadian Grand Prix: Qualifying - Team Reaction


Jean-Eric Vergne (STR8-03)
“It was not an easy session and at one point I thought I wouldn’t even make it out of Q1! But we managed to improve a couple of things on the car and that helped. Generally, I feel comfortable in the wet, but that wasn’t the case today. The car wasn’t exceptional, but we got the most out of it I think. It was tough driving out there, but in the end it worked as is clear from the fact I got seventh place on the grid. It’s my best ever F1 qualifying, but I’m not going to be jumping for joy over a seventh place, as there are no points given out on Saturday. We still have the main part of the job to do tomorrow, when I will be trying to at the very least maintain this position and even do better. I’m a racing driver so I always want to go forward. It will be a difficult afternoon in very different conditions, but our long run pace was good yesterday so that’s a reason to be optimistic.”

Qualifying Notes
• Valtteri Bottas qualified 3rd with Pastor Maldonado 13th for tomorrow’s Canadian Grand Prix.
• Valtteri showed consistently strong pace in the changeable wet conditions, finishing in the top four in all three qualifying sessions and securing his best qualifying position of the season so far.
• A red flag in Q2 prevented Pastor from finishing his fastest lap, and heavy traffic at the end of the session hindered him from setting a time that could challenge for a place in Q3.

CANADIAN GP – QUALIFYING


Saturday 8 June 2013

Car 1 SEBASTIAN VETTEL, Position: POLE POSITION, (3rd Practice – P5, 1:19.2131)
“It was very tricky today, especially as you never knew what the conditions were going to be like the next time you went out. It was intermediate tyres throughout, but it was extremely difficult to adapt as the conditions were constantly changing. In the last qualifying session we decided to have two runs; we thought the second would be quicker, as we had a new set of tyres for that, but it started to drizzle in the last sector, in particular in the chicane. I went straight there on one lap and on the second I had a mistake somewhere else, so it turned out that the first run was the important one. I’m happy the lap was good enough, as it was tight with Lewis. Congratulations to Valtteri, I think he did an excellent job putting the Williams on P3. For us, I am extremely happy with the result and looking forward to the race tomorrow. I think we had strong pace yesterday, so no matter what the conditions we should be in decent shape.”

Canadian Grand Prix – Qualifying


Saturday, 08.06.2013
Weather: overcast, then light rain 15-16°C air, 14-16°C track

It was an electrifying qualifying session at the Canadian Grand Prix in Montréal. Only a few minutes before the start of the session it started to drizzle. All the drivers who decided to go out for a first run on dry tyres quickly had to change to intermediates for the slippery surface of the Circuit de Gilles Villeneuve. The track stayed damp for the remainder of the session. Both Sauber F1 Team drivers made it into Q2, but could not progress from there. It was tough luck for Nico Hülkenberg, as the red flag was waved 200 meters before the finish line on a flying lap that would have brought him into Q3. He ended up P11, while Esteban Gutiérrez qualified 15th.

2013 CANADIAN GRAND PRIX – QUALIFYING


Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Saturday June 8
“There’s still a lot to play for”
MARTIN WHITMARSH, Team principal, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes
“A difficult session for everyone – but, ultimately, things just didn’t go our way today.
In Q2, we’d just switched both drivers to their second set of Intermediate tyres when they encountered yellow flags, and then the red. We couldn’t really get the quick laps we needed.
When the red flag came out, we only had two minutes of the session remaining, so it was always going to be difficult to get out and improve. Jenson narrowly missed starting his lap – by about one second – and Checo had too much traffic and struggled to get his tyres up to temperature. Consequently, we didn’t get a car through into Q3 for the first time this year.

Canadian Grand Prix: Friday - Team Reaction


Daniel Ricciardo (STR8-04)
“In the wet this morning, we didn’t look too bad, even if you always feel you could be quicker. We seemed to be where we should in the mid field and I was pleased with the way the car went straight out of the box, so that’s always good when you don’t have the feeling you are going to need to create a whole new race car to be on the pace. In the dry in the afternoon, after my first couple of runs on the prototype and the Prime, I felt we could get more out of the car, so we made a fairly big change which I think worked in our favour. I was quite pleased with my Option run but we still have some work to do, as there is more to come. Overall, a good Friday, a good start to the weekend.”

Canadian GP - The Friday variables


Fernando Alonso:“It was an untypical Friday, affected by the extremely changeable weather. We didn’t manage to complete our programme because the track was wet in the morning and so only tomorrow will we find out if the updates we tested here produce a real performance evolution. It was very important that we try them just as it was also important to try the new Pirelli tyres. Felipe and I made different choices for the long runs and this is another reason why we will have to wait for the outcome of qualifying to understand more. The only certainty is that we must ensure we make the right decisions, because today we saw how getting a clean lap depends a lot on the time you make the decision and what track conditions are like at that moment. We can expect a very complicated weekend, because the weather is due to remain changeable right up to Sunday and judging the grip level will be difficult, both in qualifying and in the race”.

Canadian GP Practice


Friday 07 June, 2013
Objectives: Aero evaluations, set-up work and tyre testing.

Mike Coughlan, Technical Director: We couldn’t complete our full test programme during FP1 due to the wet weather, so we just did some limited running to get a feel for the car. We had an incident towards the end of the session with Pastor hitting the wall after running off line on a drying track and damaging the nose and front wing. He didn’t damage any of the parts we were planning to carry through to qualifying though so it didn’t compromise us too much. In FP2 we got straight to work with both cars on different rear wing configurations with Valtteri also doing some front wing comparisons while Pastor completed some tyre work. Our main limitation in the conditions today was getting the tyres up to temperature quickly enough. Once everything was up to temperature the car looked better so that is something we will be looking at tonight.
