As a fan of Lewis Hamilton and his team, I must say that for me, this was the best race of the season, so far. Seeing the Williams duo of Bottas and Massa get a great start and ahead of the Mercedes duo of Hamilton and Rosberg, it brought the excitement and thrill of racing back to F1, as you knew it was going to be a thrilling race from then onwards.
I take my hat of to Bottas, Massa and the Williams team, as they drove a great race, keeping both the Mercedes duo of Hamilton and Rosberg at bay for some time.
Lewis Hamilton nearly made a mistake, which could've proved fatal to the outcome of the race, when he tried to pass the Williams just after the safety car came in.
Talking of the safety car, once again it was bad news for Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button in their respective McLaren cars. The luck, if you can call it luck, just isn't with them at all. It's amazing, almost frightening to see just how quick a Formula One team can drop off the pace. You only have to look at Red Bull to realise. And to think, it's mainly down to the power unit etc, that has caused so many problems for teams, since they were introduced along with the change in the engine designs.
But like any sport, and Formula One is no different, when changes come, you can bet even the top teams can get caught out.
What does get me though is that, when Red Bull were winning hand over foot, there wasn't as much talk going on then about how boring F1 is getting. But now that the Mercedes team along with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg have had a couple years at the top, everyone is screaming for change and spinning the "Boring Wheel". Come on people.
It was great to see Lewis Hamilton win at Silverstone, the British Grand Prix, infront of his home crowd, to which I believe were fully entertained by the performance of not only the Mercedes team, but the race as a whole.
Seeing Alonso collide with his team mate Button, was a double blow for World Champions. I hate to say it, but it's almost as if they're both in cars only suitable for retirement, as McLaren have truly lost the spark from their drive in Formula One. But with that said, I;m sure if you're a F1 driver, being in the car, any car in Formula One and racing, brings it's own rewards.
Once again, Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton for winning the British Grand Prix at Silverstone and extending his lead in this years Formula One Championship. Also hats off to the Mercedes team on a whole. Lets not forget, Nico Rosberg is also a great driver, and both Rosberg and Hamilton go way back, way way back.
All the best
