Belgian Formula One Grand Prix

Red Bulls roar again

Vettel and Webber claim RBR’s second 1-2 finish of the year... Hamilton has a big ‘off’ but Button fights through to the podium... Michael has ‘big fun’ and makes up 19 places in a busy Belgian race... Senna off to a bad start.

The boys are back in school – and young Sebastian Vettel showed he is still very much the man in charge with his seventh win of the year and the 17th of his short F1 career to put one hand on a second successive Drivers’ World Championship trophy.

‘Aaaaahhhh’: you can almost hear the collective sigh of relief as F1 is back, and back on a ‘proper’ circuit…

“It’s a place where you really feel on the limit,” says 2010 winner Lewis Hamilton, “and that’s pretty awesome in a Formula 1 car.”

One stop too many costs Mark probable podium

Mark finished an eventful Hungarian Grand Prix in fifth place. However, his chances of a fifth consecutive podium ended late in the race when he was forced to make an extra pit stop for dry tyres after a heavy rain shower failed to materialise.

“When it started to rain with 20 laps to go,” says Mark, “I pitted for intermediate tyres. Everyone was skidding around in front of me at the entrance to the pit lane, so I made the call to pit. It didn’t work out because the heavier rain didn’t come and I had to pit for dries a couple of laps later, but I wanted to roll the dice.”

Back-to-back wins for McLaren, no holiday for the rest

There may be dozens of buttons on a Formula 1 steering wheel these days, but there is only one Button behind the wheel – and Jenson had all the answers to head home Sebastian Vettal and Fernando Alonso as a treacherous Hungaroring provided a stern examination of all the drivers’ talent.

The 2011 FIA Formula 1 World Championship has reached its mid-season break – and the team going off on holiday with all the momentum behind it is McLaren.

Seb hasn’t won here and last year he goofed behind the Safety Car, letting Mark pounce for an opportunistic win.
