FORMULA 1 GROSSER PREIS SANTANDER VON DEUTSCHLAND 2008

Filed under: F1,PERSONAL,PLEASURES — by noracassandra @ 1:49 pm

I have to mention also as I’m feeling really bad for an F1 pilot that left the field some years ago… the champion Mika Häikkinen who by some accident got his French house on fire and as a result lost all his F1 trophies that he treasured… it is a real lost!

Back to the race…

Number of laps: 67… circuit Length: 4.574 km… race distance: 306.458 km… lap record: 1:13.780 – Kimi Räikkönen (2004)

Most cars started with the harder tyre…

Lap 1; Hamilton kept the lead, Vettel passed Webber, Kubica passed Trulli… Coulthard had the worst start as he fell off 10th P to 15th.

Lap 2; Barrichello passed Nakajima…

Lap 3; Coulthard get’s to P14…

Lap 4; Räikkönen passed Alonso and got his 6th P back as the Spanish fails to pull off his try to pass Trulli.

Lap 5; Trulli under pressure as having Räikkönen, Alonso and Vettel close behind him…

Lap 7; Hamilton gets the fastest lap with 1:16.378.

Lap 8; button under very high pressure from Coulthard… Hamilton leads up to 5.5s…

Lap10; Button’s hard time was also shared by his team mate Barrichello who was getting pressured from Nakajima and Piquet… and Hamilton sets another fastest lap with 1:16.078…

Lap 12; no progress with the battle between Räikkönen and Trulli..

Lap 13; Trulli was told he needs to extend his advantage over Vettel in P8 in anticipation of the first pit stop…

Lap 14; Coulthard passed Button and as a result Rosberg was behind the Honda…

Lap 15; Räikkönen seems to have hard time catching up with Trulli and having Alonso behind him didn’t help!

Lap16; Sutil has re passed Force India team mate Fisichella..

Lap 17; Hamilton sets another fastest time with 1:16.039.

Lap 18; Nakajima has a spin and piquet and Sutil pass him as a result… Fisichella straggles for pace at the back of the field… Hamilton pits and get’s out with harder tyre…

Lap 19; Kubica pits, Hamilton joins the race a head of Trulli…

Lap 20; Trulli pits, Alonso pits too and both leave with softer tyres… Massa pits and goes with softer too…

Lap 22; Vettel and Coulthard pit…

Lap 23; Räikkönen pits and goes like his team mate with softer tyre and rejoins right behind Glock…

Lap 24; Webber pits and so does Bourdais…

Lap 26; Sutil pits from P18…

Lap 28; Heidfeld pits from P5… button and Fisichella pit too…

Lap 29; Rosberg pits…

Lap 30; Glock pits from P3 and rejoins behind Trulli… and Nakajima pits too…

Lap 31; Barrichello and Piquet are the only still to pit…

Lap 32; Barrichello pits….

Lap 33; The only action I see is the battle for P7…

Lap 35; Nakajima runs off track but recovers…

Lap 36; Piquet pits… Glock is out after some kind of accident and safety car is deployed…

Lap37; Button has pit and what seemed before the safety car… and reply to Glock’s horrible accident… spin and breakage of the right front tyre before him impacted to the wall where the car was pushed to the other way and what showed a fully broken car…

Lap 38; pit lane open and most when in…

Lap 39; smoke out of Webbers car showing there is a problem with Red Bull… and the replay shows how Alonso was forced over the white line as Vettel passes him by… and lapped cars got the permeation to overtake…

Lap 40; still with the safety car in front and Hamilton leads…

Lap 41; Webber retires and safety car is in!

Lap 42; Hamilton leads the restart… Alonso all over Vettel and Räikkönen is right behind Alonso…

Lap 43; Kovalainen passes Kubica…

Lap 44; Räikkönen takes over Alonso just as he did earlier in the race in lap 4 as Alonso did the same mistake again…

Lap 45; Räikkönen passed Vettel and was P8… Hamilton is pulling away in the lead but seems not fast enough…

Lap 46; Räikkönen passes Trulli and was in P7…

Lap 48 Räikkönen gets closer to Kubica and will be fighting for the P6…

Lap 50; Barrichello hits Coulthard and both spin and both continue to pit and repair… Hamilton pits from 1st and rejoins behind Kovalainen meaning he has most probably lost his first place…

Lap 52; Kovalainen let’s his team mate pass him as seems that was the orders given… and Heidfeld sets fastest lap with 1:15.987.

Lap 53; Barrichello retires from the race…

Lap 54; Heidfeld pits and joins in front of Kovalainen… Piquet leads…

Lap 55; Piquet will face hard time with Massa and Hamilton behind him…

Lap 56; Hamilton is giving hard time to Massa… seems he might be passing him…

Lap 57 Hamilton passes Massa after pushing him off track…

Lap 58; Alonso spins but rejoins right a way losing his place to Rosberg… and Piquet leads with 2s…

Lap 60; Hamilton passes Piquet 😦 … Räikkönen passes Kubica and Heidfeld still putting pressure on Massa…

Lap 62; still seems good for Piquet and I’m hoping for him to stand on the podium…

Lap 63; replay of Trulli’s running off wide and as a result Vettel passing him to take P8…

Lap 65; got news from Toyota about Glock been sent to the hospital after his accident…

Last lap; Seemed Piquet will be on the podium after all… Hamilton first… Piquet 2nd and Massa 3rd
