Driver standings and Constructor standings after Hungary 2011

1. Sebastian Vettel 234pct
2. Mark Webber 149pct
3. Lewis Hamilton 146pct
4. Fernando Alonso 145pct
5. Jenson Button 134pct
6. Felipe Massa 70pct

Hungary, Hungaroring - Race results

1. Jenson Button 1:46:42.337(perfect race - no mistakes)
2. Sebastian Vettel +3.5 sec(1 little mistake, but not an amazing rythm, still last lap - record lap)
3. Fernando Alonso +19.8 sec(nice race - shame he made bad mistake in the last part of the race, very likely would have passed Vettel)
4. Lewis Hamilton +48.3 sec(he lost the race because of a risk(changed to intermediate tyres) assumed when it was not necessary)
5. Mark Webber +49.7 sec
6. Felipe Massa +83.1 sec(bad luck in race for Massa, generally - at least since Canada)
7. Paul di Resta +1 lap

F1 prediction - Hungaroring 2011

As in Canada, Jenson could benefit and take advantage of a Vettel mistake and could win the race; Hamilton will be too aggressive and will end in 3rd or 4th place if he will not hit any wall; Alonso may have trouble with Massa and will fight for the second place with Vettel - depends how race will be after first corner; surprise may arise from Webber who is the rain master from the grid along Schumacher; Scumacher, especially in the case of a wet race(as in GP2 this morning) will be very close to the top 4 overtaking 2 or 3 guys like Rosberg, Sutil or who knows..Massa
So..
1. Button 2. Vettel or vice versa
3. Webber
4. Alonso or Hamilton
5. Massa and Schumacher fight for 5th place

Preview 2011 Hungaroring, Hungary GP


The 525 km2 area of Budapest lies in central Hungary surrounded by settlements of the agglomeration in Pest county. The capital extends 25 and 29 kilometers in the north-south, east-west direction respectively. The Danube river enters the city from the north; later it encircles two islands, Óbuda Island and Margaret Island.The third island Csepel Island is the largest of the Budapest Danube islands, however only its northernmost tip is within city limits. The river that separates the two parts of the city is only 230m wide at its narrowest point in Budapest. The Hungaroring is the home of Hungarian motorsport. Besides Formula One, there were also DTM, FIA GT Championship races in its history and a public drag race event takes place every month.

Technical details
The Grand Prix is held in the middle of summer, which is usually hot and dry in this region. Its first wet Grand Prix race was in 2006. The circuit is normally dusty due to underuse throughout the rest of the year and its sandy soil. As the circuit track is in a valley you can see about 80 percent of the racetrack from any point. Normally an underused circuit becomes faster over the weekend as the track surface gathers more rubber residue; however, with the Hungaroring this generally does not happen because the track can get dusty so quickly. The track frequently becomes faster during a qualifying session, which leads competitors to try for their best lap as late as possible.
Magyar Circuit has 4,4 km, 70 laps with a race distance of 306 km; 4 highspeed straches, 3 slow turns, 1 ideal spots for overtaking and a top speed around 315 km/h. Best Preview by Mark Webber(last year winner):


Wikipedia History
The Hungaroring is a racing circuit in Mogyoród, near Budapest, Hungary where the Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix is held. Construction works started on October 1, 1985. It was built in eight months, less time than any other Formula One circuit. The first race was held on March 24, 1986 in memory of János Drapál, the first Hungarian who won motorcycle Grand Prix races. According to a survey put together by the Hungarian national tourism office Mogyoród ranks third in venues visited by tourists in Hungary, following the Danube Bend-area and Lake Balaton, but before Budapest.
Both Hungary's Zsolt Baumgartner and Poland's Robert Kubica made their debut on this track as the first F1 drivers of their countries. The 2006 Hungarian Grand Prix was the first wet grand prix at the Hungaroring. This saw the retirement of many drivers including championship rivals Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher and gave Jenson Button and the reborn Honda F1 team their first win. Fernando Alonso also earned his first Grand Prix victory at this in 2003, declaring it his favourite track as a result.

Preview 2011 Nürburgring, German GP

The German Grand Prix (Großer Preis von Deutschland) is an annual automobile race.It is located about 70 km south of Cologne, and 120 km northwest of Frankfurt. The old track was nicknamed The Green Hell by Jackie Stewart and is widely considered one of the most demanding purpose-built racing circuits in the world. Originally, the track featured four configurations: the 28.265 km-long Gesamtstrecke ("Whole Course"), which in turn consisted of the 22.810 km Nordschleife ("Northern Loop"), and the 7.747 km Südschleife ("Southern Loop"). There also was a 2.281 km warm-up loop called Zielschleife ("Finish Loop") or better known as Betonschleife, around the pit area. Between 1982 and 1983 the start-finish area was demolished to create a new GP-Strecke, and this is currently used for all major and international racing events. However, the shortened Nordschleife is still in use, for racing, testing and public access.


Technical details
German Circuit has 5.148 km, 60 laps with a race distance of 308.863 km; 8 highspeed straches, 4 slow turns and a top speed around 305 km/h.

Nothing to post - Incredible battle in the last lap

Silverstone 2011
Hamilton vs. Massa

Sorry for video quality...

Driver standings and Constructor standings after Silverstone (GB) 2011

Driver standings
1. Sebastian Vettel 204pct
2. Mark Webber 124pct
3. Fernando Alonso 112pct
4. Lewis Hamilton 109pct
5. Jenson Button 109pct

Great Britain, Silverstone - Race results

1. Fernando Alonso 1:28:41.196(very good race for him and for Ferrari and spectacular overtaking Hamilton, putting pressure on RedBull from the beginning and incredible laps specially in the last part of the race)

2. Sebastian Vettel +16.511sec(if it had not been that problem at the pit that delayed him with 11 seconds, would have won the race as usual)
3. Mark Webber +16.947sec(number 2 at Redbull, so 3rd place for Mark)
4. Lewis Hamilton +28.986sec(fuel problem, but crazy race and crazy last lap)
5. Felipe Massa +29.010sec(worth 4th place)

F1 prediction - Silverstone 2011

Webber will have a pretty bad start as usual; Vettel will beat his teammate at start and if Alonso overtake Webber at start he may also overtake Vettel in race; After 4th,5th or 6th place will be an accident or incident and Hamilton will win max 6 places and Rosberg, Schumacher, Heidfeld, Petrov and Alguersuari will gain several places in race, with Schumacher in front of Rosberg and maybe di Resta will survive to top10 this race.
So
Top 3:
Vettel or Alonso and Webber
4th place:
Button or Massa
Top 5-10:
Hamilton may overtake Massa if Button will,  Rosberg or Schumacher Petrov Heidfeld or di Resta and remember will be a crash or withdrawal
But if there will be raining, final result will be a little bit different.
Now lets see if i'm right...

Preview 2011 Silverstone, Great Britain GP

new paddock

Silverstone Circuit is an English motor racing circuit next to the Northamptonshire villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury. Actual configuration of the track, wich is a facelift for 2000-2009 circuit, its designed by Drew MacDonald, who's not called Hermann Tilke.
Technical details
Silverstone Circuit has 5,9 km, 52 laps with a race distance of 307 km; 6 highspeed straches, 3 slow turns, 3 ideal spots for overtaking and a top speed around 300 km/h. Best Preview by Mark Webber(last year winner):

Wikipedia History
It is best known as the home of the British Grand Prix, which it first hosted in 1948 and which has been held on the circuit every year since 1987.
Following the deaths of Senna and fellow Grand Prix driver Roland Ratzenberger at Imola in 1994, many Grand Prix circuits were modified in order to reduce speed and increase driver safety. As a consequence of this the entry from Hangar Straight into Stowe Corner was modified in 1995 so as to make its entry less dangerous and, as a result, less challenging, and the flat-out Abbey kink was modified to a chicane in just 19 days before the 1994 GP.
On 30 September 2004 British Racing Drivers' Club president Jackie Stewart announced that the British Grand Prix would not be included on the 2005 provisional race calendar, and if it were, would probably not occur at Silverstone. However on 9 December an agreement was reached with Formula One rights holder Bernie Ecclestone ensuring that the track would host the British Grand Prix until 2009 after which Donington Park would become the new host of the British Grand Prix. However, the Donington Park leaseholders suffered economic problems resulting in the BRDC signing a 17 year deal with Bernie Ecclestone to hold the British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
On 1 August 2007 it was announced that a £25m redevelopment of the circuit had been approved, with new grandstands, pit facilities and a development centre planned. However, on 4 July 2008 it was announced that the event will move to Donington Park from 2010.
On 7 December 2009, Silverstone was awarded the rights to host the British Grand Prix for the next 17 years. Part of the deal is for a new pit lane to be built.
On 11 February 2010, it was announced that the British Grand Prix would use the "Arena" circuit configuration, thus increasing the track's length by 759 metres. Ahead of the 2011 Grand Prix, a new pit complex is scheduled to be completed, making the straight between Club and Abbey corners the new pit straight.
On 1 March 2011 Silverstone Circuits confirmed that the Bridge section of the track had been decommissioned and would not be used again. Large scale earthworks are currently taking place to open up this area for spectators.

Alonso is faster than you

remember...
Last year, durring the German GP, when team orders were banned, one of Ferrari engineer told Massa through Team Radio: "Okay?!!? So... Fernando is faster than you.....you confirm that you understood that message??"(spoke annoying)
In next video I like Massa's interview after the race - how good or bad liar is(anyway in a embarrassing position was there Felipe):
