Great Britain 2009: Round 8 Results


Well done to LoudHoward on his first win of the 2009 season - his first since Turkey last year. He is also awarded for predictions of the weekend after being the only one of all of us to correctly predict Vettel to take the win. The result moves him up four places to fifth, a solitary point behind his team mate Bommer in third place. How costly will missing Monaco prove, come the end of the season?

Well done also to Hollywood - the rookie that continues to climb the standings - and last year's British GP winner AndySly88, who came close to repeating the feat and moves from 19th to 17th.

In the championship its still very much Karan and Wooze in command, with the gap to third now up to ten points. Wooze outscores Karan here by a point to close the deficit to three. It'll be fascinating to see which of these two is the first to make a mistake.

There's little change in the teams championship - Brawn put the squeeze on Ferrari and now sit just two points behind whilst McLaren's strongest result for some time sees them up two places to seventh.

Australia's first win of the season doesn't help them trouble the top three in the nation's championship - Canada, Great Britain and USA.

Roll on Germany!

A note about Le Mans...

Just a quick one - as you might have guessed with the great race taking place this coming weekend and nothing posted about it here on the site, I'm not going ahead with the Le Mans 24hrs. There didn't seem to be enough interest in it - you lot are too damn quiet! Fingers crossed for Aston Martin though...

Might still do the Race of Champions at the end of the season, we'll see. Meantime, I've got a couple of ideas coming up to see if I can't get you guys talking...


Turkey 2009: Round 7 Results


The Karan and Wooze show continues! A huge well done to Karan on taking his second victory of the season - the fifth of his career and one that sees him, Ferrari and Canada top their respective championships for the first time this year. Not a bad day at the office. Nice work!

As with his arch-rival Wooze, scoring a second win this year also means that no matter what happens in the rest of the season, he has secured the right to retain his Ferrari seat for 2010 should he wish to.

Its looking like becoming a bit of a two horse race in the championship, with Bommer still holding on to the 'best of the rest' spot in third place, ten points adrift. Well done also to Bahrain winner Hollywood, who is climbing the standings steadily and finds himself as the leading rookie in sixth.

Brawn lose the lead of the teams championship for the first time all year as Ferrari pull three points clear, with Toro Rosso, Toyota and Williams in a close scrap for third.

Canada take their third win of 2009 and jump from third to first, tied on points with Great Britain but ahead by dint of the highest win score.

Next up, Silverstone's swansong. With a quarter of the field residing in the UK, will we once again have a British winner on this legendary circuit?

Roll on Great Britain!
