    F1 GB 2020 Silverstone Highlights


    Silverstone es una pista rápida, pero también muy compleja y con una superficie muy abrasiva.

    En el año 2010 se modificó el trazado, ampliándose en casi 800m., siendo nueva toda la zona interior comprendida entre las curvas 11 y 16. Con sus 5,9 kilometros, se convierte en la tercera pista más larga del calendario, y con la nueva configuración, se convierte en una de las pistas más rápidas del año.

    Presenta una serie de curvas muy rápidas, especialmente las de Becketts, Maggotts, Chapel y Hangar Straigt. Se trata de unas zonas donde el piloto debe escoger muy bien el sitio para trazar la línea correcta y poder lograr buenos tiempos. Este es el sector más importante del circuito, donde el coche requiere una mayor carga aerodinámica y hacia el que va dirigida la puesta a punto.

    Las altas velocidades y altas fuerzas laterales causadas por el trazado del circuito, junto a lo abrasivo de la superficie de la pista, significa que será una dura prueba para los neumáticos Pirelli. La pista ya era anteriormente una de las más duras para los neumáticos, y este nuevo trazado la convierte en aún más dura para las ruedas.La nueva recta significa que la velocidad media será aún mayor que con el anterior y tradicional trazado.Entrando en la nueva sección, la nueva curva a derechas en Abbey, sin duda genera altas fuerzas laterales.

    Los cálculos sugieren que la velocidad media se mantendrá relativamente estable, y de hecho, el circuito, aún siendo rápido, es un poco menos "circuito de motor" de lo que solía ser. La potencia del motor será algo menos importante, debido a los tramos rápidos, pero sobre todo a las curvas de alta velocidad que caracterizan a este circuito.

    Silverstone no puede considerarse un circuito duro para los motores puesto que los coches tan solo aceleran al máximo el 60% del tiempo de carrera. Pero dadas las características especiales de este circuito, el coche no puede presentar debilidad alguna en ningún aspecto. Y es que Silverstone además tiene un tiempo de lo más voluble, y fácilmente mojado.

    También es el circuito más cercano a las casas de los equipos Racing Point, Renault, McLaren, Mercedes, Red Bull y Williams, por lo que muchos corren "en casa".

    El suministrador de neumáticos, Pirelli, ha analizado los "fallos" en los neumáticos de LH, VB y CS, llegando a la conclusión, que un uso durante un número de vueltas excesivo, unido a un circuito que exige mucho a los neumáticos, en especial, al delantero izquierdo y a unos autos con prestaciones notablemente superiores a las del año pasado, fueron factores que los neumáticos no pudieron soportar. Para este GP, se mantienen los tipos de neumáticos disponibles pero se aumentarán las presiones mínimas de inflado:

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    FIA está extendiendo el piano en el interior de T14. Algunos pilotos pisaron tierra en esa zona el fin de semana pasado.

    FIA is extending the kerb at the appex of T14. Some drivers went into the gravel last weekend in that area.

    Previas de algunos de los equipos:

    70th Anniversary GP: Preview - Renault

    Daniel Ricciardo matched his best result in Renault colours after a superb fourth place at Silverstone on Sunday. The Australian kept his cool amongst the chaos, as he sets his sights on doing it all over again this weekend for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.



    How do you reflect on the first Silverstone race?


    Daniel Ricciardo
    :
    It was crazy out there towards the end. It really was amazing, and we managed to get a decent reward from it by having good pace right to the chequered flag. It was important to have a solid start to the race and keep in touch with those ahead of us, which we managed well. It felt really good, and a morale booster for the team, but, as always, we want more. We were 1.1 seconds from a podium, so we're heading the right way.


    What will be different about this weekend?


    DR:
    We'll be hoping for a similar result, that's for sure. And, who knows, maybe we can! I think the weather looks to be hot again all weekend and that will bring some challenges. It was also very windy at Silverstone and that makes things tricky in a Formula 1 car. We're heading a step softer on tyres, which will certainly be interesting. We don't see that many two-stop races and this one should be a two-stopper, so we'll see what happens there. The aim will be to nail our qualifying and see if we can sneak a little further up for the start. Our race pace has been good, so let's see what we can do.


    What will you do in the week to prepare for the race?


    DR:
    These high-speed circuits do take it out from you, so I'll do a bit of recovery throughout the early part of the week. I'll rest a bit and then build up some training ready for the weekend. It still feels quite strange not to be flying off anywhere after the race and that we'll be back at the same circuit for a race only a few days apart. The routine is nice, so I'm looking forward to it. Let's do it!


    It was a thrilling race for Esteban Ocon at Silverstone, as he claimed his best result in Formula 1 since the 2018 Italian Grand Prix. The French driver targets another opportunity this weekend for the second Silverstone race.


    What positives can you draw from the race?


    Esteban Ocon
    :
    It was a really good team result with 20 points between both cars. I think it's down to the hard work between Enstone and Viry and bouncing back from Budapest. We worked hard to find improvements to make sure we went into Silverstone knowing a good result was possible. The car was awesome in the race. It helped that we had a decent start, keeping my place and staying close to a group of cars ahead. We managed the Hard tyre really well and had good pace at the end to progress some places. We definitely deserved the result and that makes us want even more this weekend.


    What are your thoughts on this weekend's event?


    EO:
    After a result like that at the first Silverstone race, we definitely have the motivation to do the same, if not even better this weekend. One thing I think we can improve is qualifying. In Q1 and Q2 we were clearly a top eight, maybe even a top six, car and then in Q3 we just couldn't quite get it together. If we can start higher up the order, our race pace is definitely good enough to take some big points. We have different tyres this weekend, so Friday will be about seeing what we can do with them and identifying our strategy for both qualifying and the race.


    How do you plan to spend your preparation?


    EO:
    I'm doing some recovery training first as it's quite a physical race at Silverstone. I'll continue with some preparation work with the team and engineers to make sure we're ready for Friday and ready to get straight on with the job. In between that, I'll fit in some chill time and recover some energy!


    The team recorded one of its best results since returning to the sport at last weekend's British Grand Prix. Now the focus is back on Silverstone, as Engineering Director Matt Harman looks ahead to the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.


    How would you evaluate the team's performance at the British Grand Prix?


    Matt Harman:
    It was a very good performance throughout the weekend. We had a well-executed Friday, which set us up for Saturday where we performed to our expectations. Clearly, the race was a good result with double figure points as the reward. We took some updates to the car, both aerodynamically and mechanically, and they both performed as per our expectations. We also gathered a decent level of understanding for future developments. The drivers gave good feedback on the updates, in particular with car consistency between runs, which is important. Overall, a very good weekend for us both from an engineering perspective and from a results perspective, however, we know we're not at the competitive level we'd like to be and we will continue pushing for more.


    We also had a reliable car all weekend and that was clearly something we had to work on from the first two races. We will keep working hard on reliability further into the season. It's been a big effort from the factory during these quite challenging circumstances to overcome the issues from the first two races.


    What are we expecting this weekend?


    MH:
    There will be some new challenges this weekend. The tyres are a compound softer so that will change our race and qualifying strategy. We've looked through some simulations and which car setup to take for the weekend. We have some interesting mechanical developments to go on the car in very specific areas. This will allow us to improve our performance, and also help our understanding for next year's car, which is an evolution of the current one.


    How difficult is it to keep up development with staff working remotely?


    MH:
    It is quite difficult to manage, but we've adapted incredibly well. As a team, we are flexible in our work anyway and I think that has served us well. We've operated all our test systems, validated components, completed aero correlation; all the things we normally do but in very different circumstances. I've been quite proud of everybody in that regard. Everybody has been tenacious in making it happen and getting around problems, so that's been really good. The main issue comes in creating a new car design without organic conversation and on-site collaborations. It's difficult to do that remotely, but we're getting back into it.

    70th Anniversary GP: Preview - Red Bull

    Last Sunday was your third podium in a row. Despite the qualifying gap to Mercedes, is it satisfying to get everything out of the car and score so many points for the Team?



    Max Verstappen
    :
    Yeah, it is because we're maximising our results every weekend. I guess even more so actually because we've finished second in the last two races so that has been good. Of course we're still lacking quite a bit of pace to them, especially in qualifying but also in the race on tracks like Silverstone, so we haven't really been able to fight them for victory but we are keeping the pressure on them. It's still good to be on the podium and you never know for the upcoming weekend what can happen, the end of the last race was pretty crazy! The tyre compounds this weekend are going to be softer, the weather is going to be warmer and the strategy could be different so I'm looking forward to it. We've had a week at Silverstone now so everyone knows what they're doing around the track, so let's see if we can learn even more about the car and try to improve it further.


    Do you think having back to back races at the same track is beneficial in helping us learn more about our car knowing the early season complexities of the RB16?


    MV:
    It's always good to be at the same track so you can back to back a few things on the car to see what they do. Of course you still have to be a little bit careful with the conditions as they can be different but overall I think it's a good thing and I'm sure the engineers like to collect this sort of data.


    This weekend with the different tyre compounds could make for a two stop strategy. Do you hope for a less lonely race?


    MV:
    (Laughs). Let's see. I hope I'm counting less sheep this weekend though!


    You're only six points behind Bottas in the championship. Is it about keeping the pressure on them and being there or thereabouts in order to capitalise all opportunities?


    MV:
    Yeah, of course we got lucky with Valtteri's puncture that dropped him outside of the points, but I just keep doing what I'm doing and pushing every weekend. Hopefully we can put the pressure on and there are still a lot of races left this year. We have to be realistic about where we are on pace at the moment and fighting them for victories and the championship under normal circumstances is quite tricky but the car is getting better, it's more predictable, so if we can keep in touch then there is always a chance. We'll keep pushing to close the gap and we will try not to make life easy for them.


    Alex you put in an impressive recovery drive on Sunday following your time penalty. How was the race for you?


    Alex Albon:
    Yeah the race was ok. The crash with Magnussen just made the race a lot more difficult from thereon. We were a pitstop behind and then we also had a five second time penalty so it was tricky but on paper it wasn't bad at all.

    We did a really good recovery and the pace was strong so that enabled us to get through the field. Obviously P8 isn't where we want to be but I think considering where we were after the opening laps it was a good come back.


    This is the second time this season we'll have back to back races at the same track. What are you looking forward to most about this weekend?


    AA:
    I think this weekend is mainly just about getting more comfortable with the car and getting on top of it. The long run pace is good, it's just the short run pace we need to work on. The good thing is that we have the same track this weekend so we can directly compare what we learned and what we need to work on. We'll try and get it dialled in and focus on the areas we struggled with last weekend.


    Silverstone
    is a track you love to drive. Just how fun is it taking corners like Copse, and Maggotts-Becketts in these cars?


    AA:
    Yeah, with the cars getting faster and faster each year, this could almost be one of the quickest times I may ever go through these corners. They just have huge downforce and some corners aren't even corners anymore which is crazy to think. We're pretty much flat all the way through Copse and we lift one time into Maggotts-Becketts, so that kind of shows you the speed nowadays.


    Tyres proved to be a talking point in Sunday's race. What will you be looking out for this weekend?


    AA:
    Tyres are definitely a talking point as what happens now we're coming into week two is we have a softer compound on all three tyres so the hard tyre no longer exists and the medium compound becomes the hardest for the weekend. So I'm sure we're all going to have to play around with strategy. It's going to be tough actually and it's going to be a lot more of a strategy race this weekend. If the change in compound suits us or not, I'm not sure but I think possibly yes because we're pretty good on our tyres we're one of the few teams not to struggle with any issues like that.


    The weather is meant to be a lot warmer this weekend. Do you think that could play into our hands?


    AA:
    Well we're good on our tyres and Honda are good at dealing with heat and PU cooling so I think coming into Sunday we'll have a strong package. I think we just need to work a bit more on our Saturdays and then we know we can have a good one this weekend. Still, we'll need to focus on ourselves and work on the areas we need to improve. Obviously with the temperatures set to be higher this weekend, Mercedes should come towards us and if we can go towards them hopefully we'll meet half way.

    70th Anniversary GP: Preview - Haas

    When 21 cars lined up on the grid at a converted Second World War airfield in 1950 it marked the start of a championship that would grow exponentially, create heroes, and build a fanbase of millions. Now, after 1,022 races at 71 circuits in 32 countries featuring 765 different drivers Formula One is back where it all began for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix.



    Silverstone
    will host the second of back-to-back races in Britain, after last weekend's British Grand Prix at the same venue, for the fifth round of the 2020 campaign. In order to commemorate the seven decades of the Formula One World Championship, which began at Silverstone on May 13 1950, the event will be titled the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix. It is the first time a Formula One event has not been named after a country, province or city.


    Haas
    F1 Team remains the championship's newest and brightest entity, participating in 87 of those grands prix since it joined the paddock at the start of 2016. It has recorded its own successful chapters to the rich tapestry of Formula One's 70-year history and drivers Kevin Magnussen and Romain Grosjean are keen to add another memorable page to the book at Silverstone this weekend.


    For the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix it will be the same venue, same teams, same drivers and same regulations as the British Grand Prix but with a slight tweak from tire supplier Pirelli. It has moved one step softer with its three compounds compared to last week's encounter, opting for the C2, C3 and C4. In Friday's second practice session Pirelli will also make its 2021 prototype tires available for use.


    The old phrase states 'necessity is the mother of invention' - do you feel that applies to team strategy currently with some bold calls at the Hungarian Grand Prix and again in Sunday's British Grand Prix?


    Guenther Steiner:
    "We make these calls because if you have nothing, or at least little to lose, you need to do something different to make something happen. As a team we just decided to take a little bit more risk because these things can go backwards pretty quick as well, or against you, but once we made points and unfortunately on Sunday we didn't. We could have put ourselves in a position to score points if not for the pitstop issue for Romain (Grosjean) in engaging first gear. If the opportunity arises to do something different - we will do it and we are doing it."


    What are the key takeaways from the British Grand Prix that can be applied to this weekend's 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone?


    GS:
    "What we learned last weekend is that the car is not too bad on race pace - Romain was competitive in the midfield. What we need to do is try to get better in qualifying, which at this moment in time is difficult. But that's what we learned - in racing at Silverstone, we can play in the midfield. We just need to get the best out of qualifying so we can start in a position so we can make moves. If you start at the back it's very difficult to move forward with the air being so dirty, it's very difficult to advance."


    What are the positive elements you see emerging within the team this season amongst the challenges faced both on and off-track?


    GS:
    "The positive element is really that all the people on the team are highly motivated to keep on going. We are all happy to still be here and everybody's fighting really hard to stay here. Even if we haven't got the best package of car at the moment, we're always fighting and giving our best. There's a lot of effort involved, a lot of long hours, and if we keep this going, we'll be in a better position pretty soon."


    From an engineering standpoint, would you be happier racing at familiar circuits - with all the data and experience you have as a team, or do you see the recent introduction of the likes of Mugello, Nurburgring, Portimao and Imola to the
    2020 F1 calendar as a positive opportunity - a blank canvas with everyone starting from scratch?


    GS:
    "I see the new races as being exciting and challenges give you opportunities. I hope we can take some opportunities in those races where everybody almost starts with a blank canvas. Some of the big teams will be doing testing at these tracks with two or three-year-old cars to get some data from it, that's not forbidden by the regulations, so we can't do a lot about it. But still, even if you go there with an old car, it's still a new race track for the driver. It should give you some advantage, because something unforeseen can come, and your preparation - the well-funded teams have much more resources, they can do a much more thorough job to prepare for a new event. That said, I find it quite exciting and I'm sure there will be opportunities, we just need to be able to take them."


    What are the steps the team makes to prepare for those new circuits? Is the simulator the key element in those preparations?


    GS:
    "The simulator is a key element. We're looking right now if we're going to do some sessions. We all know we have a tight budget and we need to spend our money wisely, but maybe this is one of these things we will be doing. This would be a good investment and a very important thing to do."


    The old phrase states 'necessity is the mother of invention' - do you feel that applies to team strategy with some bold calls at the Hungarian Grand Prix and again in Sunday's British Grand Prix - where you ran deep on the medium tires to run as high as fifth?


    Romain Grosjean
    :
    "Yes, I think we try as much as we can. Obviously, the last two strategy calls have been the right ones. It paid out in Hungary with Kevin (Magnussen) scoring a point. It didn't really happen on Sunday, but we tried. We brought the car up to fifth, I was having a good race from there. It's good and I think we need to keep doing that."


    What are the key takeaways from the British Grand Prix that can be applied to this weekend's 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone?


    RG:
    "I think it will again be another interesting race. The tire selection is a bit different, so everything we learned throughout the weekend and on Sunday is good. We can try to optimize everything. We have some ideas as to where we can get better, that's what our focus will be on."


    With Formula One announcing a return to the Nurburgring in October - where you scored a third place podium in the 2013 German Grand Prix, plus the addition of Portimao and Imola, do you relish the return to a circuit with some happy memories and what experience, if any, do you have of the other circuits?


    RG:
    "I'm very happy with the addition of those tracks. Nurburgring is a great track and 2013 was a very good race. We had a bit of a different strategy and without the safety car I'd have won the race. I raced at Imola in the 2011 GP2 Asia Series, taking the pole and winning the feature race. It's an incredible circuit with a lot of history obviously. I've only ever seen footage of Portimao, but it looks really good - let's see what we can do in a Formula One car there."


    From a driver's perspective is it exciting to go to new circuits and have that element of the unknown ahead of a race weekend?


    RG:
    "Yes - 100 percent. It makes a change from the routine we normally have. I am very happy with the calendar, I think it's great fun. I think we're going to have a good year going to these tracks."


    How do you work with your engineers to prepare for those tracks, is it predominantly simulator work? What do you specifically focus on as a driver in this scenario?


    RG:
    "Yes, I think the simulator is important. Also, getting all the information from the track, the scanning, the layout - everything to ensure we are ready for when we go there. It's going to involve some work in advance, some simulator work, some onboards and so on, to really discover the track."


    The British Grand Prix was somewhat of a rollercoaster weekend with extreme temperatures on Friday, a challenging qualifying session, grid promotion, a great start then the obvious disappointment of an early race retirement. How much time do you spend processing all that happened or is your mindset simply focused on the next race?


    Kevin Magnussen
    :
    "Well there's not too much to process from the race obviously, but there was a lot to learn from the weekend in general from practice and qualifying. We'll see what we can take into this weekend."


    What are the key takeaways from the British Grand Prix that can be applied to this weekend's 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone?


    KM:
    "On Friday it was very hot so if this weekend is as hot as it looks like, we might be able to take some of that learning from Friday and carry it on into this weekend."


    With Mugello, Nurburgring, Portimao and Imola announced on the Formula One calendar - do you have any experience of those circuits and if so, in what categories?


    KM:
    "I have experience at Nurburgring and Portimao. I've raced at the Nurburgring in almost every category I was in before Formula One except, I think, Renault 3.5. I did a Formula Three test in Portimao, so I've been there, but it was back around 2010 I think - certainly quite a while ago. I've never been to Mugello or Imola so there'll be some learning to do, especially at Imola with just one practice session before qualifying. That's going to be exciting."


    From a driver's perspective is it exciting to go to new circuits and have that element of the unknown ahead of a race weekend?


    KM:
    "I always like to learn new tracks. It's a disadvantage if you don't know the tracks and other competitors do know them. For the circuits I don't know I'll just have to learn them really quickly."


    How do you work with your engineers to prepare for those tracks, is it predominantly simulator work? What do you specifically focus on as a driver in this scenario?


    KM:
    "As a driver you just try and prepare beforehand as much as you can before driving the track, whether that's on the simulator or watching videos. You study the track and analyze it as best as you can with things like onboard footage and previous races before going there for real. There's not too much else you can do. In terms of what we do with the engineering, it's really focused on getting the set-up as best as we can to start with."
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Martin Brundle (Sing '09)

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".

    70th Anniversary GP: Preview - Ferrari

    For the second time in this unusual 2020 Formula 1 World Championship, we have two races on consecutive weekends at the same track. After Spielberg hosted the first two rounds, it's Silverstone's turn. After last Sunday's British Grand Prix, this weekend we have the Formula 1 70th Anniversary Grand Prix. There could be no more appropriate circuit, as the first ever race to count towards the championship was held at this former Royal Air Force airfield on 13th May 1950. It has a special significance too for Scuderia Ferrari as the following year, on 14 July 1951, it took its first ever win here, courtesy of Argentina's José Froilàn Gonzalez in a 375 F1.



    For the first time ever, a round of the World Championship does not have a name featuring some form of geographical location. It's not always been the name of the country, as there have been races called the Grands Prix of Europe, the Pacific and more recently Styria, as well as others taking their names from the city that hosts them, as was the case with Indianapolis, Pescara, Las Vegas and Dallas. In Formula 1 races at Silverstone, Scuderia Ferrari has secured 14 wins, 11 pole positions and 45 podiums overall.


    The track has changed over the years, the most radical transformation first seen at the 1991 race, when Silverstone was made much slower. In 2010, it was lengthened by 750 metres, while the following year, the start grid was moved from the straight between Woodcote and Copse corners to the one between Club and Abbey. This track sees Formula 1 cars generate lateral acceleration of around 5g at Copse which is taken pretty much flat and at the legendary sequence through Maggots and Becketts, where the high speed changes of direction are a stern test of car set-up.


    Enrico Cardile Head of Performance Development:
    "For the second time in this unusual season, we are preparing for a weekend on the same track that we raced on last week. Last weekend's ambivalent result should serve as double motivation: on the one hand we will be trying to repeat the positives we saw, such as qualifying in particular, on the other we must do all in our power so that both drivers, not just one, are able to get the most out of our current package, starting off by not losing valuable time through reliability problems.


    "On the technical front, the SF1000 will be in the same configuration as last weekend. We will try to optimise every aspect, especially in terms of tyre management over a long run. In fact, Pirelli is supplying a range of compounds that are a step softer compared to those used in the British Grand Prix. All the teams thus face a new challenge, both in qualifying and the race. The forecast is again for settled weather with hotter than usual conditions for this part of the world, so the picture becomes even more complex.


    "We know that at the moment, we are not able to fight for the win in a Grand Prix, but that does not mean we are any less motivated. The aim is to do our best, day after day and to bring home as many points as possible for us and all our fans.


    Sebastian Vettel
    :
    "Last week's race here was pretty difficult for me and I think that being able to race at Silverstone just one week on from that is a good opportunity to try and get back a good feeling with the car.


    "On Friday, we'll be able to make use of all the data the team acquired over the first weekend and that should help because we will be able to work in a more focussed way to try and get in synch with the SF1000."


    Charles Leclerc
    :
    "For the second time this season, we will race at the same track two Sundays running. Luckily, we are at Silverstone, a track that is always nice to drive and where we got a podium which was a good boost for the whole team.


    "The work we did last week should be a great starting point for this coming weekend, although every race has its own story. As we did last Sunday, we have to be sure to make no mistakes to make the most of any opportunity that might present itself."

    Lo que a más de uno nos parecía más que evidente se acaba de confirmar. Hulkenberg sustituye también esta semana a Checo.

    No sé si es efecto de la luz o los de Mercedes han pintado en el interior del halo una línea de color diferente en cada uno de los coches para diferenciarlos. Si es lo segundo bien podrían haber elegido colores algo menos parecidos.

    EMIRATES FORMULA 1 70TH ANNIVERSARY GRAND PRIX 2020 - Silverstone
    Resultados FP1
    Viernes, 7 de agosto de 2020


    Sigue el dominio de Mercedes con Valtteri BOTTAS finalizando 1º y HAMILTON 2º.

    Y tras ellos vuelve a quedar VERSTAPPEN, que ha sido 7 décimas más lento que los Mercedes.

    En cuarta posición y a 50 milésimas de Max, ha terminado HÜLKENBERG, al que se le ha visto más adaptado que la semana pasada. Lástima que no pudiera participar en la carrera. STROLL ha terminado 8º, a 6 décimas de Hulk.

    A VETTEL se le ha visto bastante cauto y ha finalizado 7º mientras que su compañero LECLERC vuelve a quedar por delante, en 5ª posición.

    Entre los Ferrari ha terminado ALBON.

    Carlos SAINZ ha finalizado 14º, dos posiciones por debajo de NORRIS y a tres décimas.
