2013 British Grand Prix

Hello F1 Fans, 
With the dust settling down on the "tyregate" scandal we're back to another exciting weekend of racing. Up next is the British Grand Prix. Having been hosting F1 races since 1950, Silverstone is one of the oldest and fastest circuits on the Formula One calendar. The fast circuit layout means that plenty of energy is put through the tyres, with a consequent effect on wear and degradation. The standings after the Monaco Grand Prix are Sebastian Vettel leading with 132 championship points, Fernando Alonso in 2nd with 96 points and Kimi Räikkönen in 3rd with 88 points.

TYRE ALLOCATION - Pirelli will be bringing hard compound(Orange) and medium compound (White) for this race. The notoriously variable British weather will play a huge part in the number of pit stops. If the wether stays dry, Pirelli is expecting between three and four pit stops.

DRS ZONES - The FIA has now announced that there will be two DRS zones for this race. The activation point of the first is shortly beforeTurn 3 (Village) and the activation point is after Turn 5 (Aintree) on the Wellington Straight. The second zone’s detection point is after Turn 10 (Maggots) and the activation point will be after Turn 14 (Chapel) on the Hangar Straight.

Can Webber followup his last years win here with another victory? Can McLaren make it to the podium in their home grand prix? Will this be the circuit where Mercedes will win their first race of the year? Can Kimi return to winning ways after two ordinary races?

If you're in the New York City area and looking for some racing action with other F1 fans, be sure to join us for the British Grand Prix to see who will take the checkered flag. Race will start at 8:00AM EST with the pre-race starting at 7:30AM EST. It's going to be another exciting weekend of racing.

We hope to see you all!

    Insane race, what with all the tire explosions, right? Some impressive driving by Hamilton and Massa to get back up into points after falling that far behind. Heck of a run by Nico, and if Webber'd had a few more laps...

    Good time with the people, as always!

    Looking at NBCSports channel schedule it says they aren't showin the race until 11am tomorrow? Seems they showing Tour de France coverage during the race. Will Felie have access to some other network that is showing the race live?
