2007 french grand prix review
Just when McLaren was about to start dominating the championship, Ferrari clearly demostrated at Magny-Cours that it still has something to say!
Asked about what was better about the monopost in France,Kimi Raikkonen said that everything was at high standards and he felt the improvement of the car from the begining to the end of the race.
Kimi’s declaration was contested by Lewis Hamilton, who said that the 2 Ferrari monoposts weren’t as quick as they looked.He thinks that McLaren can bounce back the next race,without a doubt.At Silverstone
Another interesting battle is between BMW Sauber and Renault.Bmw had another good day at Magny-Cours.Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld brought another nine points for 4th an 5th places respectively. Their score is now 48, whereas Renault only gathered three more for Giancarlo Fisichella who finished the race on the 6th place.The other driver of Renault,Heikki Kovalainen was taken out of the equation on the first lap when Toyota’s Jarno Trulli struck the back of his R27.
Toyota looked resonable in the qualifyng session but in the race, Jarno Trulli abandoned, while his team-mate Ralf Schumacher finished on the 10th place, after he was bottled up behind the Honda monopost of Rubens Barrichello.
Takuma Sato was pulled over by a problem allied to a refuelling rig glitch.Adrian Sutil, hadn’t the chance to finish the race with his Spyker monopost because his car was pushed off the grid having some electrical problems.The other driver from Spyker, Christijan Albers moved off before the lollipop man instructed him to, resulting the dragging of half the refuelling rig down the pit road and instant retirement.
The next race from Silverstone marks the midpoint of the world championship, and McLaren currently have 114 points, Ferrari 89. Everything is still out there to play for.The British Grand Prix follows so quickly that nobody really has much time to do anything but put the cars in the trucks and take them to the UK.
