2011 British Grand Prix

The 2011 British Grand Prix was won by Fernando Alonso with Ferrari. Followed by Red Bull drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber.

More Formula 1 teams are based out of the UK than any other country, and for this reason the British Grand Prix at Silverstone has a special symbolic meaning for the teams which other races don't have. How sad for them, then, that they were all beaten by Ferrari and Fernando Alonso this year. To be fair, Sebastian Vettel had a good race, but was delayed coming out of the pits on lap 28 by a jammed rear wheel gun, dropping him out of first place.

Vettel finished second followed by his Red Bull teammate Mark Webber in third. Lewis Hamilton took fourth place, but Jenson Button, his teammate at McLaren, was forced to retire after coming out of the pits with an unsecured wheel. McLaren is still holding onto second place in the constructor standings, but both of their drivers have now fallen behind Alonso in points for the driver's championship. Alonso still trails both Red Bull drivers, but while Mark Webber is still well within his reach, Vettel remains far ahead of the rest of the field. Photos courtesy of Sutton Images.
