2 weeks go by shortly as we head to a revamped Silverstone circuit for the second half of the Formula 1 World Championship. 2011 British Grand Prix @ Silverstone Join Lewis Hamilton on a tour of the track: [YOUTUBEHD]iTzAGqfCSbU[/YOUTUBEHD] Race Date: 10 Jul 2011 Number of Laps: 52 Circuit Length: 5.891 km Race Distance: 306.227 km Lap Record: 1:30.874 - F Alonso (2010) 2010 Results: 1st - Mark Webber (RBR-Renault) 2nd - Lewis Hamilton (McLaren-Mercedes) 3rd - Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) 2011 Championship Standings: 1st. Sebastian Vettel (RBR-Renault) - 186pts 2nd. Jenson Button (McLaren Mercedes) - 109pts 3rd. Mark Webber (RBR-Renault) - 109pts. Well, we come to a new Silverstone with a new start-finish straight and pitlane, but the most talked about things are of course, the new rules regarding exhaust blown diffusers. There is now a limitation on them, and that is set to hurt everyone with the exception of the Cosworth engined teams, but the ones to be hurt the most are the Renault engined teams, which includes front running, championship sweeping Red Bull. Red Bull has admitted that this could cost them around half a second of time, but have sounded pretty comfortable and unworried about their championship lead being compromised by it, while their rivals McLaren and Ferrari, have said that this may bring forth a second chapter of the 2011 championship. Thinking back to the mass dampers Renault had in 2006 being banned half season, ending Alonso's dominance and bringing Ferrari back to the winning circle, we could very well see something like that happen. A few teams are bringing some big upgrade packages to Silverstone, Ferrari most notably, with HRT also bringing in some new upgrades in their pursuit of Lotus for 10th in the constructors. Speaking of HRT, Australian Daniel Riccardo makes his debut for the team in a partnership with HRT and Red Bull for him to be evaluated with them, replacing Karthikeyan for the time being.
