His Australian teammate, Mark Webber finished in second place with a final lap of 1m 19.856s. As reported earlier, Red Bull had introduced a new nose for the British GP (dubbed ‘Duck’s beak’ by Vettel) and it seems to have done the trick again.
Vettel’s Red Bull was a clear 40 seconds ahead of the third placed Rubens Barrichello of Brawn GP with a final lap of 1m 19.868s.
Ferrari’s Felipe Massa had a good day and climbed to P4 from P11 on the grid with a final lap of 1m 18.927s. His team-mate,Kimi Räikkönen, took P8 with a final lap of 1m 20.715s.
Massa and Williams’ Nico Rosberg had an interesting duel throughout the race – first with Barrichello for P3 and then for P4. With less than two seconds separating the three drivers, Williams took a chance and pitted Rosberg on lap 44. A lap later, Massa went in for his pit stop and came back out on the track in front of Rosberg. Rosberg had to settle for P5 (1m 20.361s). His team-mate, Kazuki Nakajima, finished at P11 with a final lap time of 1m 20.216s.
Pre-race favourite Jenson Button of Brawn GP struggled in the opening laps after being blocked by a slow-starting Jarno Trulli of Toyota and was forced to fall to ninth. Though he managed to drive up the grid, he came up against the spirited driving of Massa and Rosberg and had to settle for P6 (1m 20.289s).
