The answer to the question of whether Silverstone will be a Redbull dominated track as it has been for the last 3 seasons.. is if Silverstone is 'front-limited' or 'rear-limited'.. for if it is front limited as China was.. Redbull could have problems with over-heating the fronts again and need to slightly de-tune their performance leaving the door open for ..I'm going to say Ferrari/Alonso or one of the Mercedes boys to take it to the top step - if Pirelli's changes the construction of the rear tires to 2012 spec this will lower heat in the REARS which could help Mercedes

The RB8 on this year's Pirelli is front limited in faster corner tracks.
The RB8 has the best/most developed coanda system that uses the exhaust gases to enhance rear down force and that helps the rear tyres.
The Mercedes has the least developed coanda system of the front runners and so the rear tyres suffer much more than others, they overshoot their operating temperature by 20 degrees in a short track time.
The Mercedes front tyre suffers more on Lulu's car because of his aggressive (braking) driving style.
The 2013 Pirelli tyres do not like brake and turn at the same time.

I think Webber would win in Silverstone I dont think Mercedes have the car to hold the weight load going through high speed corners... the graining would be scary

sunny. I was reading a report today that implies that merc have given lulu too much leeway, and he is "doing his own thing". it went on to say that he needs to decide if he wants to be a racing driver or a hip hop star! further, there is disquiet about him bringing roscoe to the pits and rumours that animal welfare agencies are rather upset about it.

"Moss backs Hamilton for British GP success"

Well, with 1000km of testing that no one else on the grid other than his team mate has had, I'd imagine he's a fair bet. That is of course, only if Nico doesn't show up that weekend...hahahahaha!

The latest after Monaco, “my side of the garage missed it” this after admitting it was his fault, now it's his side of the garage that missed the chance to win.
Re the bulldog, agree the pit lane is no place to take one's pet, he is just being funny.
