Such an exciting weekend for sports fans around the world. The final of the dramatic World Cup which put everyone’s focus to South Africa. Whoever won this cup on South Africa’s soil would put the very first star on their National jersey, also named as the FIRST European country who wins the cup outside Europe.
Another big sports event was a celebration of the renovated Britain’s Silverstone, with the Break-A-Record 115,000 audiences . England claims the mantle of the series’ birthplace, and its GP (along with Italy’s) stands as the longest-running in motor racing.
Disappointment to the British duo who failed to win the 1st place on their soil. Second place was McClaren’s Hamilton, winged by Red Bull’s duo,Webber and Vettel. Speaking about this Red Bull team, rumour has it that Mark Webber was quite pissed off at the team unfair treatment. Surviving the crash from the last Grand Prix, Red Bull’s no.2 driver did a zero-mistake race at Silverstone and finally, beautifully, won the race.
Lewis Hamilton still leads the series with 145 points; Button is second with 133, while Webber passed back over Vettel into third position with 128 points. Vettel, who finished the race in seventh, is fourth in the standings, with 121 points.
There was plenty of excitement in the British Grand Prix, although not for Scuderia Toro Rosso, as Sébastien Buemi was our only finisher, coming home in twelfth place at the end of the 52 lap race, which in the early stages looked as though it might hold some points for us come the end. Jaime Alguersuari failed to see the chequered flag, spinning off seven laps from the end with a brake problem when a tenth place had looked within reach.
Not all bad for Jaime, at least he got to celebrate the FIRST World Cup with all the pride Spaniard in London. Congrats Jaime!!!
