Spanish Grand Prix

Summary:

Rubens Barrichello who had a brilliant performance in the lead up to the Spanish Grand Prix was more comfortable with his car than team mate Jenson Button and looked set to score his first win for Brawn. But it looks as if Ross Brawn master minded a strategy that gave both of his drivers the best chance they could have, and Button was lucky this time. What a great start to the season for Button – four firsts and a third!

Summary:

Massa’s qualifying time of 0.4 seconds behind Button in the Brawn means that they would have qualified at almost identical times if they had the same amount of fuel, so it may be all down to whether KERS can get Massa out in front at the start of the Spanish Grand Prix, and then whether the extra 10Kg of fuel (or extra 3 laps) will give Massa the advantage.

Summary:

In Malaysia Q1 there was just 0.826 seconds between front runner Rubens Barrichello and 15th place drop zone marker Sebastien Bourdais, so you could understand Massa mistakenly thinking that he could safely stay in the pits and save a set of tyres for later. But how did Ferrari again fail to get out of Q1 in Spain?

Summary:

The first day of practice at the Spanish Grand Prix ended Button topping practice 1 and Rosberg leading practice 2. There were no major incidents except for the brake fire on Buemi’s Torro Rosso and a few people including Nelson Piquet slithering off the track. Rosberg apparently running out of petrol in the last few seconds of the day’s seconds practice session, disappointed several drivers on their final fast lap of the day.
