More of the usual post-race coverage coming your way today including Stats and Facts and the rest of the team-by-team reviews.
Here’s today’s round-up:
“We’ve been talking to the people in Cape Town, there are one or two places now that are coming on quite strong which could happen. We’re talking about a building a circuit. It’s probably three years away.”
Former Renault driver continues to impress in his return to single-seaters.
Comment of the day
The situation at Red Bull reminds GeeMac of another famous case of ‘favouritism’:
I totally agree with Webber in this situation. The level of favouritism that has been show towards Vettel is reaching Schumacher-Barrichello levels. First with the way ?óÔé¼?ôswervegate?óÔé¼?Ø (love that phrase, can?óÔé¼Ôäót remember who to thank for it) was handled despite the fact that Vettel was clearly in the wrong and clearly acted in a childish manner with his hand gestures towards the crowd when he got out of the car and now with the revised front wing issue. Webber is doing just the right thing in this situation, keeping cool and winning.
The only person Vettel should be mad at is himself. Frankly a driver that is as highly rated as he is combines with the fastest car on the grid and unofficial number one status should be miles ahead in the championship. But he?óÔé¼Ôäós only fourth, a full race win off the lead.

Lots of deserved praise for BBC’s F1 coverage.

On this day in F1
Michael Schumacher won the British Grand Prix in controversial circumstances on this day in 1998.
Schumacher was given a drive-through penalty for overtaking Alexander Wurz under yellow flags. But a delay in serving the penalty meant he was able to serve it in the pits on the last lap – having already crossed the finishing line to win.
The rules were later changed to prevent anyone doing the same again.
