Rubens wins European Grand Prix


Rubens_valRubens Barrichello took his first victory today at Valencia after Chinese GP in 2004. Brazilian dedicated his victory in the European Grand Prix in Valencia this weekend to his injured countryman Felipe Massa. Last December, Rubens was not certain to get a seat in a F1 car but now he has shot himself into a contention for WDC. The victory is down to the team’s strategy and his drive and determination during the whole weekend. Most of the teams came out of their garages to applaud him!

Lewis Hamilton is second in the race and continues excellent pace Mclaren have discovered recently. His cruise for the first place was not helped by Mclaren decision. Hamilton was meant to come in on lap 37 but Mclaren wanted to extend him to 38. But this decision came a couple of seconds too late, the time during which Hamilton entered the pitlane. In the process tyres were not ready and hence at least 6 seconds were lost.

Kimi Raikkonen stood third in the race. The KERS power boost at the start saw Kimi move immediately up two places to fourth.

Kovalainen, Rosberg, Alonso, Button and Kubica finished in points in that order only.

Red Bull had an awful day at office with Webber finishing in 9th while Vettel DNF due to engine failure. Another person with an awful weekend was Luca Badoer. He finished seventeenth after several spins.
