Horner: We could never have anticipated such a 'dream start'

“Who knows?” he muses. “Obviously the changes in Valencia were minor. There was maybe the expectation that we run some form of qualifying map, which hasn't been the case. The changes for Silverstone are broader, and it'll be interesting to see what effect it has on the different teams. We've been fortunate enough to win the grand prix for the last two years there, so it would be a great privilege for the team to make it a hat-trick, and that's what the target certainly is going into the weekend.”

And what, finally, does the former racing driver make of the recently-ratified introduction of turbocharged V6 powerplants from 2014?

“I think they're a good set of regulations,” Horner affirms. “A V6 is much more in-keeping with F1, and the sound of the engine should be fantastic. Hopefully, common sense has prevailed at the end of the day...”

Common sense in F1? Now that would be a first...
