British Grand Prix 2017: Grand Prix Weekend Thread

There are uneasy times for the British Grand Prix as we head to Silverstone for Round 10 of 20 in this year's championship.

Although the circuit was reprofiled a few years ago, it remains one of the favourites for many drivers, with a lot of quick corners presenting them with an exciting challenge.

Fred gets yet another penalty for Honda change, although it's only a five place, so hopefully he can repeat the FP1 form, as McLaren are looking better this weekend

What was the expected outcome of not following a safety related directive during scrutineering?

Richard

Edit: As expected... the team was on the loosing end of this disagreement...

so yeah started out as a bad story for STR but it in the end it doesnt seem like they did anything intentionally wrong,...the team and their tether manu both confirmed that it was within parameters, knots and all, and just a bit of a used part but in the end STR made a voluntary choice to change it.

storm in a teacup?

It's minor drama, but fully and easily avoidable by Toro Rosso.

I tend to believe that the entire outcome was a small bit of face saving effort on everyone's part. But in the end, the stewards decision said they can't use the existing tether and that it must be changed... and it was. I think the only thing in Toro Rosso's favor is that they provided evidence that the knots were OK.

The real question is why did Toro Rosso think they could just ignore the directions from the scrutineers or that it would play out in their favor? I expect the correct course of action would have been...

1. Change the tether after the issue was brought up during scrutineering.
2. Then provide evidence to clarify what can/can't be used next time to avoid dispute.

Lewis has won the British GP four times, wining the last three races in a row. So, can he use to his advantage and take the fight back to Vettel, who has won here once in 2009?

Yeah might have less to do with Lewis, more to do with taking the penalty somewhere you can make up lost positions "easily".

Looking forward to the British Grand Prix. I know Silverstone has a few problems at the moment, but hope they can work them out.

What will happen with the Vettel and Hamilton fight?

Watching the free Practice today I was in absolute awe of the the pace of the cars - Copse flat out!

I did comment to my mate that we hadn't done so bad last month as our race pace was about the same time that the leaders were clocking in FP2 in race simulation ................then he pointed out that we were on the International circuit which is only a shade over half the distance of the GP circuit........
