F1 Statistics and Analysis After German Grand Prix 2009

Posted by f1cafe on July 14, 2009

Highlights of the 2009 German Grand Prix:

 – Mark Webber scored his first F1 victory after being in F1 for 8 years. He managed the victory after serving a drive through penalty for running into Rubens Barrichello at the first corner. This race also marked Mark’s first pole position.

– For the second race in a row (first one being Silverstone), Red Bull have scored a dominant 1-2 finish, there by maximising the constructors points haul and closing the gap to Brawn team by 11 points. All three Red Bull victories this season have been 1-2 finishes.

– This is also the second race in a row for Jenson to finish outside of podium.

– For the first time this season, Mark Webber outqualified his team mate Sebastian Vettel.

– Jenson Button again got outqualified by his team mate Rubens Barrichello, but finished ahead of Rubens in the race.

– Filipe Massa scored his first podium (third place) of the season for Scuderia Ferrari, while his team mate Kimi Raikkonen did not finish the race.

– Fernando Alonso recorded the fastest race lap for the first time this season, for Renault. He also got outqualified by his team mate Nelso Piquet Junior for the first time this season, in the tricky and wet qualifying session. Fernando spun and blew his chances of getting into Q3.

– Adrian Sutil of Force India recorded the first Q3 entry for the team, as he qualified 7th.

– In the drivers standings Filipe Massa jumped from 6th to 5th ahead of Jarno Trulli. Rubens Barrichello droped from second to fourth after being overtaken by both Red Bull drivers.

– Jenson Button still continues to be the only driver to have scored points in all races so far this season.
