Who was Great in Britain?

Who do you think was the star performer during the British Grand Prix weekend?
The British Grand Prix at Silverstone saw Mark Webber come through to take his second win of the season and his second in three years at the Northamptonshire-based track.

It was a great drive from the Aussie, although Fernando Alonso also did well for Ferrari and came within four laps of taking two wins in succession, not that second was a bad result, as it still keeps the Spaniard top in the battle for the F1 2012 drivers' title.

Behind, Sebastian Vettel had a bit of a low key weekend by his standards, but still took the final spot on the podium.

Then there was Felipe Massa, who having secured his best grid position of the year the day before, put in a very good drive to take fourth - a welcome boost for the Brazilian after a tough few months.

Both Lotus drivers' also did well, with Kimi Raikkonen coming home fifth, right on the tail of Massa, while Romain Grosjean fought back from his first lap incident with Paul di Resta to take an impressive sixth.

Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton had more trying afternoons, although both still scored and Lewis even led at one point, dicing with Alonso before his first stop, in one of the more entertaining moments of the race.

We shouldn't forget Bruno Senna and Jenson Button too as both came back after starting down in 13th and 16th respectively to score.

But who impressed you most?

"Lead the race with the 6th best car making the Mclaren car punch above its weight, what a driver." Are you kidding? Being in first position because you haven't pitted when others have isn't "leading the race". Effectively the lead drivers were still always Alonso and Webber.

DRS should be canceled next year. DRS is degrading F1 drivers ability on over taken. Also it's unfair to front car who can't use DRS even though car was fast enough to defend his position. FIA should rethink about DRS and cost cutting measure to cut the KER next year. Best driver has to over taken with his natural talent but not with DRS help. We want to watch real exiting race and not a blow-up doll.
