Silverstone, Day 2: F1 Qualifying

In the last post I did about our trip to Silverstone I mentioned that I don't take much notice of the adverts on the cars just the colour scheme they produce. Maybe that is why I really like the livery of the Brawn GP cars.

It is such a simple yet striking colour scheme and without many adverts it doesn't look cluttered. It was such a shame then that Jenson could only manage to qualify 6th fastest (with a time of 1:20.289). Watching him on the track he looked as quick as the Red Bull cars which qualified 1st and 3rd. Then again we only saw the cars through a few corners and there was less than a second (0.78) between Jenson and Sebastian Vettel on pole so I'm not surprised we couldn't see a difference in speed!
