The results of the GP of Canada 2011: The victory of Button

Racing in Canada are never boring, and the Grand Prix of the 2011 season was no exception. A began in Montreal in the morning rain has promised to tighten even more intrigue. The start was given the run behind the safety car, and after she left, the holder of pole position, Vettel, kept its position and gradually began to break away from the pursuing two of his Ferrari. In the first turn taunted Lewis Hamilton, Mark Webber, turning his car, and just all around after the Briton went on the attack on his team mate – Jenson Button, which ended with the contact between the two McLaren and Lewis gathering. The share of Jenson then also dropped a lot of problems. After the incident with Hamilton, he drove into the pits to check his car, and at the same decided to take a chance and go with much rain on intermediate rubber. The choice turned out to be true, but at the exit of the pit lane speeding Button, for which he received a penalty in the form of travel in the pit lane. By the time a lot of pilots and had to move to an intermediate, and benefit those who do not. In the end, the rain intensified so that the Directorate suspended the race. The break lasted more than one and a half hours, so that at some point, even there were serious fears that the race and finished 25 quarters, and the first ten pilots get only half points. But the rain still stopped and the race started again, giving one of the best entertainment and inflame the struggle Grand Prix, so that spectators and television viewers will be compensated by their tedious wait. The victim of the incident fell race Fernando Alonso, who had a good chance in this race, Scuderia looked most confident in Canada since the beginning of the season. Alas, Jenson Button Ferrari Spaniard teased, sending him into the security zone, where it will no longer able to get out. Nick Heidfeld in the second turn buried in Kamui Kobayashi, Sauber about damaging his front wing Japanese, which on dispersal gave way and fell under the wheel of Renault. Machine Nick had become unmanageable and flew far beyond the highway, miraculously avoiding contact with the protective barriers. Closer to the finish line trajectory is so dried up, that the pilots gradually began to switch to slicks. Leaving a pit stop on sklikah, Felipe Massa overtaking circular fell on the wet land and lost control of the car, breaking the front wing that it was thrown far back. As a result, the Brazilian finished the race sixth. Excellent rain had complicated the race Vitaly Petrov, who finished fifth, which enabled him to rise in the overall standings to seventh place, ahead of several opponents at once. Kamui Kobayashi of his second place did not hold, however, the finish line in seventh position allowed the Japanese to win the test points for the sixth race in a row. Newly finished in the top ten Rubens Barrichello, who saw the checkered flag in eighth. In addition, the points earned in Canada, as both pilots Toro Rosso – Jaime Alguersuari and Sebastien Buemi finished the race eighth and tenth, respectively. But the interesting thing happened at the finish line in front. While Vettel safely in the lead, the second position from the attacks of Mark Webber and Jenson Button defended Michael Schumacher – the seven-time winner of the Canadian Grand Prix! Mark still could not get around German, although his Red Bull was clearly faster than Schumacher’s Mercedes. After another attack Webber cut his turn, ahead of Michael, but after a couple of turns yet returned his position to avoid possible fines. I took advantage of Button, who managed to circumvent the first Australian and then the Germans. Thus, Jenson Button, who earlier in the race still managed to pierce the front wheel, in spite of all his misfortunes, came in second place! Michael Schumacher, whose first podium since returning to Formula 1 is separated by only a few laps, yet could not keep the third position – at the next braking before the last turn of Mark Webber came forward. Meanwhile, Jenson Button did not think to stop there. Englishman overtook Vettel in the lead and put pressure him for two laps before the finish of the race. Sebastian, who was in the lead from start to finish without committing the entire distance of a single mistake on the last lap of the Canadian Grand Prix a little wrong with the braking and turns on the wet part of the track than immediately enjoys Button, who won the race that lasted a record four hours, and more than four minutes. The next race will be held in two weeks in Valencia. Unlike Canada, the race there are quite boring. Can I somehow fix the situation two zones of the system DRS (managed rear wing), we’ll see.
