British GP Preview with WilliamsF1
The inaugural round of the FIA World Championship in 1950, the British GP has evolved into one of the most prestigious on the F1 calendar. All eyes therefore turn to Silverstone this weekend, where Ferrari will be hoping to sustain their momentum. They won at Silverstone in 2011 - and Fernando Alonso has won twice in 2012, in China and, most recently, in Valencia, two weeks ago. For another team, though, Silverstone also has special significance. The quintessentially British team, WilliamsF1, could list Silverstone as its second home. It was there, in 1958, that a young Frank Williams squeezed through a hole in the fence to watch his first motor race - to watch Peter Collins win for Ferrari; and it was at Silverstone, in 1979, that Williams scored their first F1 victory. Three of Nigel Mansell's famous British GP wins - 1987, 1991, 1992 - were scored at Silverstone. And now WilliamsF1 is again on the rise. In the hands of Pastor Maldonado, the 2012 Williams FW34-Renault won the Spanish GP and, with Bruno Senna in the other car, has shown sparkling speed at other races. In this special, Williams-themed, edition of The Flying Lap, we therefore look ahead to the British GP live with Dr Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer for Williams F1, and, in an exclusive interview recorded at the factory on July 3, with Pastor Maldonado.
