I think a single dominant win is a little bit early to say that the tide is turning. It's just a bad weekend for BrawnGP and Brawn being Brawn will not standby and watch his team go down. If Redbull got an upgrade, it won't be long before BrawnGP gets an upgrade. One thing is an advantage for Brawn is Jenson, Unlike Rubens, Jenson can get consistent performance if the car is running fine. I think he will be a challenger in the German Gran Prix.

All things being equal, Vettel is faster than Button and Webber is more consistent than Reubens (this year) so it comes down to the car. Brawn was a great package with the trick diffuser built in from the start. But the Red Bull seems to be a better chassis and now they have got over the restrictions of the rear suspension on the enhanced diffuser, they have caught up technically. Unless Brawn can improve their car faster than RB, Red Bull's drivers will give them the manufacturer's championship. But maybe Jenson is enough in front to hold out Vettel for the driver's.

The real turning point at Silverstone is the realization that Bridgestone (or anyone who can influence them) will decide the W.C. If they continue to supply soft compounds, Brawn will be up the front. If they go with harder tyres Red Bull & maybe Ferrari will win.....

Way to go guys! Way to go :) Just a damn pity the other teams cannot get a good car together. McLaren are a mile off the pace and are a shambles. Ferrari for all their money are no better. Renualt are poor by standards too. :?

Eddy Carburettor:

How do you know that "All things being equal Vettel is faster than Button"? Now that Red Bull has a new, triple diffuser he is faster. Besides, in F1, things are never equal.
