Vettel wins British GP from pole

Germany’s rising star Sebastian Vettel had a perfect day today at Silverstone to win British GP from pole position beating his teammate Mark Webber and Brawn GP driver Rubens Barrichello. He pulled apart from the chasing group right from the star and never looked in trouble.


“It is fantastic. It shows we are on the right way. I want to thank Silverstone: it’s only my second time here, I enjoyed it so much here, the cheering was fantastic, the emotions especially when I crossed the chequered flag, it was fantastic.” said Vettel

Brawn GP cars struggled at low temperatures to get heat to the tyres. Jenson Button, winner of 6 races out of 8 this year, could only manage sixth.

Ferrari made a huge improvement this race weekend and both its drivers finished in points. Felipe Massa finished fourth while Kimi Raikkonen finished eighth.

Fernando Alonso of Renault could only finish fourteenth.
