The gloom of a British summer could not prevent a riveting grand prix at Silverstone, which provided a gripping win for Mark Webber over Fernando Alonso.
In AUTOSPORT magazine this week all elements of the British Grand Prix weekend are dissected, from Mark Hughes’s comprehensive analysis of the race itself, to the fallout from the deluge that caused anger among spectators who could not get into the venue on the practice and qualifying days.
Full coverage of entertaining support races, from GP2 and GP3 (courtesy of Simon Arron) to the Porsche Supercup (Adam Cooper) and Historic F1 (Charles Bradley), completes the Silverstone package, along with the other top stories including Jackie Stewart’s reaction to Webber remaining at Red Bull and the consequences of Maria de Villota’s horrific accident in the Marussia at Duxford.
Not only that, but as well as scribbling his Historic F1 report, editor Bradley went behind the scenes with Sky to bring you the story on how a GP broadcast comes to your TV screen. And, in his weekly column, Hughes tries to get to the bottom of what’s going wrong for Jenson Button.
