Великобритания'96: Waiting for an intrigue

Race 591. July 14, 1996. Gran Pri of Great Britain. Silverstone Poul Damon Hill (Williams FW18) - 1:26.875 (210.178 km/h) the Best circle Jacques Villeneuve (Williams FW18) - 1:29.288 (204.498 km/h) the Winner Jacques Villeneuve (Williams FW18) - 1:33:00 (((((199.576 km/h) won That poll in Silverstone to whom pilots of Forti in the last Gran Pri conceded more than eight seconds Damon Hill. Surprising here nothing was - in the 1996th Williams dominated in the championship again, and Jacques Villeneuve to struggle with the workmate lacked experience yet. After nine races on Hill's account there were six victories. The victory at the tenth stage would allow to repeat Alain Prost's achievement in the 1993rd - in that season when Hill was his workmate.

In Williams Constructors championship just smashed competitors - after nine races the team of Grove had more points, than at Benetton, Ferrari and McLaren combined! In personal offset Hill was in the lead with big advantage too - in 25 points over Villeneuve and 37 over Schumacher.

of the Competition at Damon not that was not absolutely, just at each of potential opponents arose the difficulties, and for Hill the season developed ideally. Three races which he did not manage to win were won by three different pilots - Villeneuve, Schumacher and Olivier Panis.

Jacques Villeneuve from time to time was very fast, but he spent the first season in Formula 1, and continued to meet team, car and routes. Besides, it had very specific requirements to settings, and engineers not too trusted the beginner.

Jean Alezi and Gerhard Berger, having passed into champion Benetton, with surprise found out that it is unexpectedly difficult to operate the vehicle. It turned out noncompetitive in qualifications though with full tanks remained one of the fastest.

As for Michael Schumacher, in the first half of a season in Ferrari he with interest took the Italian color, and reached the finish where less than it would like. And even in those races which it managed to finish something surely broke.

If to speak about speed, F310 it was impossible to call the outstanding car, but from time to time it went quickly. Especially after updating of aerodynamics on Gran Pri of Canada, having received the "lifted-up" nasal fairing very similar on what was used a year before in Benetton. For nine stages Schumacher won a poll three times - yes, it happened on those routes (Imola, Monaco, Manyi-Kur) where it was traditionally strong, but nevertheless, the car it allowed it.

In races everything was crossed out by technical problems. The case on previous Gran Pri became especially scandalous to France where Michael won a poll, but could not start in a race - the motor exploded on a heating circle. His workmate Eddie Irvine held on longer - to the fifth circle when the transmission failed. Approximately there were also affairs and at the previous stage in Canada.

the Italian press, perhaps, best of all is able to rejoice and extol the mister
