Silverstone In The Wet

SPR took a trip to Silverstone yesterday to have a blast around the GP circuit. What welcomed us was a rather damp track after a night of heavy rain. To say it was like driving on glass would be an understatement, even on our sighting laps we spun at 40mph through Becketts – just crazy! With the track not drying out and a heavy shower at lunchtime the whole day was made up of driving at road speeds using a very conservative and smooth driving style to minimize the number of trips into the nearby scenery (at least a dozen red flags with one car going into the pit wall coming out of Woodcote). It also made us appreciate that SPR needs some adjustable suspension as we certainly could have done with softening the front of the car to try and maximize what little grip there was. One of the highlights of the day was managing to snag Vettel’s garage slot see pictures below.
