Vettel leads Red Bull dominance in Hungary

Sebastian Vettel secured his fourth consecutive pole position (the seventh this season) as Red Bull Racing continued to dominate the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend.

The speed advantage from the RB6 was highly impressive and that flexible front wing fitted to the Renault-powered car has caused many rivals – in particular McLaren – to complain.

Vettel’s pole lap around the 2.722-mile Hungaroring was one minute, 18.773 seconds, a superb performance as it breaks the previous lap record held by Michael Schumacher. Mark Webber lines up alongside his team-mate on the front row, but with a margin of 0.419 seconds.

But when compared to its nearest challenger, the Ferraris, the advantage was highly significant. A full second slower to the flying Red Bulls!

Controversial German Grand Prix winner Fernando Alonso qualified in third ahead of team-mate Felipe Massa. The Spaniard’s best lap in Q3 made him the only non-Red Bull driver to dip below the one minute, 20 seconds target all weekend.

McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg’s Mercedes were next up with Vitaly Petrov producing his best-ever qualifying result with seventh. In doing so, the Russian out-qualified his Renault team-mate Robert Kubica by a single position.

Another impressive performance was Sauber’s Pedro de la Rosa with Nico Hulkenberg in the Williams completing the top ten.

As for the current world champion Jenson Button, the McLaren driver will start in a disappointed P11. Yet again, he complained about the loss of grip despite the MP4-25 was quite reasonable in the final practice session leading up to qualifying.

At least Button is ahead of Rubens Barrichello and Michael Schumacher. The pair had a difficult session although the seven-time world champion suffered the most with only P14 for Mercedes GP.

Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi will start the Hungarian Grand Prix down in P18 after being baulked by Bruno Senna’s Hispania at Turn 14 on his final qualifying lap. After entering the pitlane, Kobayashi appeared to have ignored an instruction to stop at scrutineering, although the Japanese driver denied he had done anything wrong.

In the battle of the new Formula One teams, Timo Glock achieved Virgin Racing’s third ‘pole position’ against Hispania and Lotus. The German will start the race in P19, while Sakon Yamamoto had his most convincing performance since returning to Formula One. Even though he qualified last (P24), he was just five hundredths of a second slower than his Hispania team-mate Bruno Senna.

Alonso takes victory at Hockenheim despite team orders

Fernando Alonso took his second victory of the season despite the Ferrari team instructing Felipe Massa to let the Spaniard by during the German Grand Prix.

Even though team orders have been banned in Formula One following deliberate ‘race fixing’ by the Scuderia in the past (case in point: Austria 2002), it is ironic that the Italian-based squad adopted this route to secure a one-two result.

As for Sebastian Vettel, who started his home race in pole position, the Red Bull driver was unable to recover from a poor start and had to settle with third at the flag.

The McLarens of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button finished in fourth and fifth respectively while Red Bull’s Mark Webber took sixth.

At the start, Felipe Massa made a superb getaway from third on the grid to lead into Nordkurve. For Sebastian Vettel, he focused too much on preventing Fernando Alonso to get by and that mistake allowed Massa to sweep around the outside and into first place.

The trio ran in close company initially, before the red cars started dropping the Red Bull following the pit stops.

Alonso immediately seemed quicker on the harder compound Bridgestone, closing right onto his team-mate’s gearbox and drawing alongside on the back straight as they lapped Bruno Senna and Timo Glock on lap 20.

But then Massa lifted his pace and started pulling away, setting several new fastest laps and opening up a 3.4-second lead.

This did not last though as the double world champion responded by setting some fastest laps of his own thereby reducing the gap back down to under a second. On lap 47, Massa’s race engineer Rob Smedley told his driver that “Fernando is faster than you” and asked him to confirm he ‘understood’. A lap later, Massa lifted off after the hairpin and Alonso accelerated past on the straight to take the lead, denying a Massa victory on the first anniversary of the horrific Hungaroring crash that ended his 2009 season.

Vettel occasionally trimmed the Scuderia’s advantage during the German Grand Prix and a late push got the Red Bull driver onto Massa’s tail, but he was unable to overtake.

Despite the straight-line speed advantage, the McLarens were never fast enough to fight for the podium and finish only in fourth and fifth. Nevertheless, the drivers still head the championship standings.

For Mark Webber, the Australian had to nurse his Renault-powered Red Bull amid worryingly high oil consumption.

A lap down, Renault’s Robert Kubica beat the Silver Arrows to seventh, with Nico Rosberg getting ahead of Michael Schumacher during the pit sequence after a good start from the elder German had earlier swapped their positions.

Renault got both cars in the points as Vitaly Petrov took tenth, while both Williams lost ground on the opening lap and could not recover into the points, despite Nico Hulkenberg waiting until lap 34 before pitting.

Sauber’s Pedro de la Rosa also tried a bold strategy, running 51 laps on the hard set of Bridgestone before changing to the soft tyre, but his plan for a late charge backfired when he hit Heikki Kovalainen’s Lotus, breaking the front wing and taking the Finn out of the best of division two of Formula One, who had been running ahead of Timo Glock’s Virgin Racing up to then.

Other teams in trouble were Toro Rosso and Force India, who both saw both their cars damaged in first-lap incidents – in Toro Rosso’s case after Jaime Alguersuari crashed into the back of Sebastien Buemi at the hairpin.

Yet again controversy played a part in Formula One with Ferrari issuing team orders to let Alonso through. The sport’s reputation is put on the line once again and we shall see if the race stewards will exclude the red cars from the result following this action.

Following hours after the chequered flag, the race stewards have fined Ferrari $100,000 and for bringing the sport into disrepute. The results from Hockenheim will stand. See the comments for the latest updates.

Vettel snatches Hockenheim pole from Alonso

Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel claimed pole position for his home Grand Prix at Hockenheim by a margin of two thousands of a second from Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso.

Alonso had looked the favourite for top honours, as he was the fastest in both Q1 and Q2. He was still out in front in the early part of Q3 with Vettel only 0.034 seconds adrift.

On the final qualifying runs Vettel found a further couple of tenths and set a lap time around the 2.842-mile circuit with one minute, 13.791 seconds to displace the Spaniard from pole. The double world champion looked set to beat his rival’s time but fell short by the smallest of margin in the last sector.

Despite the setback, Alonso should be satisfied by the improved pace in the F10 and with team-mate Felipe Massa starting in third, Ferrari is beginning to regain lost performance when compared to Red Bull Racing and McLaren.

British Grand Prix winner Mark Webber lines up in fourth after making a mistake on his final qualifying run – running wide at Nordkurve (Turn 1).

As for the McLarens, Jenson Button outqualified his team-mate Lewis Hamilton by 0.06 seconds to take fifth. The British pair will form row three on the Hockenheim grid.

Robert Kubica will start the German Grand Prix in seventh ahead of Rubens Barrichello – who is proudly wearing a T-shirt saying he is faster than The Stig off Top Gear!

The two Nicos of Hulkenberg and Rosberg will line up in ninth and tenth respectively.

For Michael Schumacher, competing in Mercedes GP’s home race and in front of his passionate fans, the seven-time world champion could only manage P11. Schumacher would have taken part in the top-ten shootout, but was knocked out in the final moments of Q2 by Willi Weber’s protégé Hulkenberg.

Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi was another driver to miss out in going through to Q3, as the Japanese held a top ten place for most of Q2 before a mistake on his final run meant he was shuffled back to P12, still only 0.066 seconds from the top ten.

Force India had a very tough qualifying session. Adrian Sutil will take a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change following a practice failure but could only manage P14 nevertheless, while Vitantonio Liuzzi caused a seven-minute stoppage when he spun out of Sudkurve in Q1 and smashed into the pit wall, leaving him P22 on the grid. He was unhurt, although his Force India was heavily damaged – and Virgin Racing’s Timo Glock was lucky to avoid a flying wheel detached in the crash.

Lotus had another one-two in the battle of the new Formula One teams competing this season, with Jarno Trulli ahead of Heikki Kovalainen, but Glock had been ahead of them until his Virgin had a mechanical problem. His team-mate Lucas di Grassi fared worst of all, unable to run in qualifying at all due to gearbox problems.

Christopher Nolan’s latest sci-fi thriller Inception is a masterpiece of storytelling, with beautiful cinematography and fascinating characters.

In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a single idea within one’s mind can be the most dangerous weapon or the most valuable asset.

Leonardo DiCaprio plays Dom Cobb, a skilled thief. The absolute best in the dangerous art of extraction, stealing valuable secrets from deep within the subconscious during the dream state, when the mind is at its most vulnerable.

Cobb’s rare ability has made him a coveted player in this treacherous new world of corporate espionage, but it has also made him an international fugitive and cost him everything he has ever loved.

Now Cobb is being offered a chance at redemption. One last job could give him his life back but only if he can accomplish the impossible-inception. Instead of the perfect heist, Cobb and his team of specialists (featuring the talented stars of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Ken Watanabe and Dileep Rao) have to pull off the reverse: their task is not to steal an idea but to plant one. Inside the mind of Robert Fischer Jr played by Cillian Murphy.

If they succeed, it could be the perfect crime. But no amount of careful planning or expertise can prepare the team for the dangerous enemy that seems to predict their every move. An enemy that only Cobb could have seen coming.

Following the success of rebooting the Batman series with the superb Batman Begins and the excellent The Dark Knight (and not forgetting The Prestige) British director Christopher Nolan’s new film Inception sets a new bar of creativity and originality. If you thought Memento was difficult to follow, Nolan’s latest film Inception is even more complicated! Nolan taps into the world of the subconscious and after experiencing 148 minutes of mind-blowing special effects and top star talents, you are left feeling in a dream like status.

The action sequences are like a work of art but you have to be paying constant attention to all the layers of what is happening. The final hour is quite possibly one of the most complicated. Without giving the game away, this make this film so entertaining to the viewer.

With a A-list cast featuring the talent of Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Lewitt (Tommy Solomon from 3rd Rock of the Sun!), Sir Michael Caine, Ellen Page (Juno) and Marion Cotillard, the film represent the best of Hollywood.

Inception certainly lives up to the hype and indeed Nolan has surpassed himself with this brilliant and breathtaking film. Highly recommended.

Webber clinches victory at Silverstone

Mark Webber took his third Grand Prix victory of the season with a great drive at Silverstone. This was payback time for the Australian following the team’s bias to Sebastian Vettel over the new front wing design.

Lewis Hamilton put up a brave fight in challenging for the lead but ultimately the speed of the RB6 meant he had to settle for second in the McLaren. Despite that he still leads the drivers’ championship with 145 points.

Mercedes GP’s Nico Rosberg was able to fend off Jenson Button in the late stages of the British Grand Prix to take third. For the reigning world champion, this was a solid performance despite starting in P14.

And what about pole sitter Sebastian Vettel? Well, the Red Bull Racing front wing controversy certainly didn’t help but his chances of winning at Silverstone was ruined by a first lap puncture, caused by a light contact with Lewis Hamilton’s front wing endplate. Despite losing ground over that right-rear puncture, the German was able to recover from lost ground thanks to a safety car to finish in seventh position.

Yet again the controversy over the decision made by the race officials meant Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso finished in P14. The Spaniard was left frustrated despite making a pass on Robert Kubica at Club corner but the race stewards believed he cut the corner and was given a drive-through penalty for his punishment. If Fernando conceded that race position back to the Renault driver immediately (Robert would later drop out with a differential problem), he wouldn’t have to suffered that penalty and would have recorded a points finish.

As for Felipe Massa, he was unlucky to suffer a puncture after making contact against his own Ferrari team-mate! The wheel-banging incident occurred at Becketts following Alonso’s slow start off the grid. Still finishing in P15 was not the ideal result for the Scuderia.

A safety car period caused by a contact between Adrian Sutil’s Force India and the Sauber of Pedro de la Rosa, left chunks of the latter’s rear wing deposited on various straights. This caution period was a lifeline for Vettel, who had made little progress up to that point, but then started carving through the traffic with a series of spectacular passes, including one on Michael Schumacher.

Passing Adrian Sutil proved a tougher challenge for the Red Bull driver and it took many laps before Sebastian muscled his way pass to take seventh on the penultimate lap.

While at the front, Mark Webber delivered the masterclass with victory at Silverstone. Hamilton managed to tag along until the pit-stops, but thereafter the Australian was unstoppable, setting fastest laps whenever required and leading by six seconds before easing off at the end.

Rosberg returned Mercedes GP to the podium with a solid run to third, despite losing a barge board when sweeping round the outside of the yet-to-stop Jaime Alguersuari’s Toro Rosso. The German finished just ahead of Button, who surged through from P14 to fourth thanks to a great opening lap and staying out much longer than most before his single tyre change.

Rubens Barrichello gave Williams another top five finish, with Kamui Kobayashi following the Brazilian to the chequered flag awarding the Sauber team their best result of the year.

So a fantastic result for Mark Webber. Even though the Australian was miffed over that front wing change, this was sweet poetic justice over the team preferring the number one driver Sebastian Vettel. His victory at the British Grand Prix means he now jumps into third in the standings with 128 points, 17 behind championship leader Lewis Hamilton and only five from Jenson Button. In the constructors’ standings, McLaren still leads with 278 over Red Bull Racing’s 249 and Ferrari’s 165.

Vettel leads Red Bull front row at Silverstone

Sebastian Vettel took his fifth pole position of the 2010 season following a dominant performance at Silverstone. The speed of the Red Bull RB6 was impressive and with Vettel taking pole with a lap time of one minute, 29.615 seconds the young German is looking in good shape in repeating his 2009 victory.

Red Bull Racing locked-out the front row once again with Vettel taking the top honours while team-mate Mark Webber having to settle for second position, just 0.143 seconds down. The battle between the pair was the highlight of the session as they traded the fastest sector times around the 3.666-mile circuit.

The closest challenger to the charging Red Bulls was Fernando Alonso. Even though the double world champion was left frustrated to be caught behind Rubens Barrichello’s Williams on his last Q3 run, the Ferrari driver was still able to hold off crowd favourite Lewis Hamilton to third.

For the 2008 British Grand Prix winner, racing in front of the passionate home crowd, the McLaren driver could only manage fourth despite the team abandoning the exhaust-blown diffuser following Friday’s practice sessions.

The new upgrade caused problems to the MP4-25’s floor, which affected the aerodynamics due to the excessive heat. So the Woking-based team decided to drop this new update and revert back to the old set-up. That lost time in adapting the cars for the British drivers cost significant performance and this was especially true for Jenson Button.

The reigning world champion will start his home Grand Prix in a disastrous P14. Jenson was later interviewed that his car was ‘undriveable’ and was a lost to explain why its grip had suddenly disappeared in Q2, leaving him on row seven.

For the Silver Arrows, this was a better qualifying performance than Valencia with Nico Rosberg taking fifth place – 0.8 seconds and five positions clear of Mercedes team-mate Michael Schumacher.

Joining Rosberg on row three is Renault’s Robert Kubica, with the Brazilians of Felipe Massa and Rubens Barrichello taking the fourth row in the Ferrari and Williams respectively.

As for Sauber’s Pedro de la Rosa, the Spaniard qualified his best-ever position with ninth.

The Force India of Adrian Sutil will start in P11 with team-mate Tonio Liuzzi in P15, but the Italian could face questions over impeding Nico Hulkenberg’s Williams.

In the battle of the second division of Formula One, the Lotus of Heikki Kovalainen and Virgin Racing’s Timo Glock had a close duel for the top spot among the new teams, eventually won by the Finn again, although the margin to the established midfield teams was back up to two seconds.

Bruno Senna’s replacement driver at Hispania, Japanese racer Sakon Yamamoto will start last in the British Grand Prix, but the gap to his team-mate Karun Chandhok was a respectable 0.4 seconds. It will be fascinating if Yamamoto can keep up the pace with 52 laps around the fast, flowing Silverstone circuit come race day.
