Episode Summary

2009 British Grand Prix - Silverstone
The Red Bull pair of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber put the BrawnGPs to shame in Britain as lap after lap they displayed their superior pace, taking the 1-2 ahead of Rubens Barrichello. Vettel, starting from pole position, put in a succession of fastest laps as he edged away from Barrichello in the opening stint of the race. And once his team-mate Mark Webber was able to leapfrog the Brazilian in the first round of pit-stops there was no stopping Red Bull Racing from claiming the 1-2. Meanwhile, Felipe Massa put his disappointing P11 on the grid to good use, starting the race with a heavy fuel load that saw him bring his car home in fourth place, ahead of Nico Rosberg. Jenson Button could find no way past Jarno Trulli at the start and was passed by slower cars on lap 1, ruining his strategy on a cool day when tyre temperatures did not suit the heat-loving BrawnGP cars. Jarno Trulli and Kimi Raikkonen competed the top eight in a race that saw the best action take place between World Champions Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton. Alas they were fighting for 16th place at the time.moreless
