Turkish Grand Prix Race Analysis


The Formula1 round seven of the FIA Formula1 World Championship folded with Mclaren celebrating their second one two of the season but without Red Bull collision it would 3rd and 4th place for the british team,but the good thing is that Mclaren were very close to Red Bull and were able to challenge them,and the question is What happened to Ferrari ?
We take a team by team analysis to see what happened in Istanbul:
McLaren
Lewis Hamilton, P1
Jenson Button, P2

Mclaren were very happy they were able to challenge for pole yesterday and their race pace was as good as Red Bull or better than them as we never managed to see one of their cars in clean air ,after the Red Bulls collided the team told the drivers to save fuel and then Button closed on Hamilton and was able to pass him round turn 12 but Hamilton repass at the main straight after they banged wheels at turn one, maybe the team told them to save fuel not to race each other.
Red Bull
Mark Webber, P3
Sebastian Vettel, retired, accident, lap 40

The Red Bulls were very fast as usual and they should have ended with a one two finish it was very close between Webber and Vettel, they should learn to control their drivers the good thing is they were allowed to race each other but they should learn to give room for each other like we saw with the Mclarens, but they still remain the team to beat in the next races.
Mercedes
Michael Schumacher, P4
Nico Rosberg, P5

Mercedes had a good race with no troubles but they had higher hopes for the race than 4th and 5th but still a good race for them and Micheal Shumacher who was able to finish ahead of his teammate.
Renault
Robert Kubica, P6
Vitaly Petrov, P15

Both Renault drove a great race with Kubica challenging the Mercedes and able to keep Massa behind and scored a valuable points ,Petrov was able to keep Alonso for almost the whole race but when the Spaniard passed him he had a puncture that put out of the points but still he set the fastest lap of the race.
Ferrari
Felipe Massa, P7
Fernando Alonso, P8

The biggest question of the weekend is what happened to Ferrari what happened to their speed Massa was stuck behind Kubica for the Whole race and Alonso passed Petrov in the final laps they need to analyze their data to see what happened and they need to act fast their next upgrade will come in Valencia.
Force India
Adrian Sutil, P9
Tonio Liuzzi, P13

Sutil drove another good race despite losing time with a problem with the right front wheel during his pit stop. He made a nice, aggressive pass on Kobayashi late in the race, which was subsequently rewarded when 10th place became ninth as Petrov pitted with a puncture on lap 54. Liuzzi had better race pace but once again found his VJM03 gripless in comparison with his team mate's.
BMW Sauber
Kamui Kobayashi, P10
Pedro de la Rosa, P11

As one insider remarked, BMW Sauber never envisaged being happy about a 10th place finish at the start of the year. But their hard-fought first point was gratefully accepted after Kobayashi and De la Rosa gave their crew nervous moments in the closing stages. In view of what had happened with the Red Bull and, to a lesser extent, the McLaren team mates, it was nail-biting watching the Japanese and the Spaniard finish only two-tenths of a second apart. Kobayashi had earlier run ahead of Sutil, but had to back off in Turn 8 when he started to see canvass appearing through his right front tyre.
Toro Rosso
Jaime Alguersuari, P12
Sebastien Buemi, P16

Buemi's race was ruined when he lost momentum trying to pass a slow-starting De la Rosa round the outside of Turn 3. That forced him wide and let Hulkenberg by, and as the Swiss tried to repass the German in Turn 7, the Williams understeered into the Toro Rosso, puncturing the right rear tyre.
Williams
Rubens Barrichello, P14
Nico Hulkenberg, P17

Both Williams finished the race, which was a relief after the troubles in Monaco, but 14th and 17th places were nothing to cheer. Barrichello had a clutch problem that ruined his start, then encountered a problem with a front wheel when he decided to stop earlier than planned as his pace was better than the cars immediately ahead. Hulkenberg's race was compromised from the start when he and Buemi got together in Turn 7, puncturing the front left tyre.
Virgin
Timo Glock, P18
Lucas di Grassi, P19

Virgin won the new team's race, but not without a big fight. Di Grassi started from the pit lane after oil systems problems were solved which had necessitated removal of the Cosworth engine. Glock lost a place to Senna at the start, fought back, and was able to pull away and moved ahead in the newbie stakes when the two Lotuses retired. Five laps from the end his hydraulics also malfunctioned, but he was able to make it to the flag with just fifth gear operative. Di Grassi went on to have a spirited fight with Senna as both VR01s finished.
HRT
Karun Chandhok, P20 DNF
Bruno Senna, retired lap 46, fuel system

Senna enjoyed a really good fight with Di Grassi's Virgin, which showcased the HRT F110's similar speed, so was disappointed when his fuel system malfunctioned and forced him out. Chandhok elected to start on the harder Bridgestones and struggled until the options went on at his first pit stop. Subsequently he picked up pace, but also ran into problems with his fuel pump and was not running at the finish.

Lotus
Jarno Trulli, retired lap 33, hydraulics
Heikki Kovalainen, retired lap 33, hydraulics

As usual the Lotuses looked stronger in the race than in qualifying as they lapped less than two seconds slower than their benchmark, the Cosworth-engined Williams, but this time they were let down at similar points in the race with hydraulic problems, Kovalainen in the pits, Trulli out on the track.
