    F1 Summer Break: The PUMA Perspective

    August 05, 2011

    Formula 1 fans will have to do without their fixes until end-August as per an agreement originally proposed a decade ago by Eddie Jordan, who campaigned for a (European) summer break during which F1 personnel could spend quality time with family, loved ones and friends. Thus was born the concept of a two-part season, with MotoGP and the World Rally Championship quickly following suit.

    Amid all the podium celebrations in Hungary it was easy to overlook one very simple, yet telling, statistic: Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso scored more points out of the past four races than any other driver. Having placed second, first, second and third in Valencia, Britain, Germany and Hungary respectively, the 2005/6 champion took home 76 points versus the 73 of reigning champion and points’ leader Sebastian Vettel, and the 55 of the German’s Red Bull Racing team-mate, and current runner-up, Mark Webber.

    When reflecting upon the last three races in Montmelo (Spain), Monte Carlo (Monaco) and Montreal (Canada), one thing stands out: PUMA’s partner team Ferrari was right up there on each occasion, and could conceivably have won (or at least taken podium places) in each event had not unfortunate circumstances conspired against the Italian team.

    Monaco may have seen Sebastian Vettel record his fifth victory in six races this season to date, but to many the moral winner was Fernando Alonso after the Spaniard topped the time sheets in two of the three practice sessions.

    Another race, another victory for Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull, suggesting the combination is on track to repeat their respective 2010 championship successes, particularly as the German comfortably leads the drivers’ classification from Lewis Hamilton after five of 19 races run, with the team already having a one-two finish in hand over McLaren in the constructors’ championship.

    Two red glasses, one half full; the other half empty: that best summarises Ferrari’s Turkish Grand Prix weekend. PUMA’s partner team scored its first podium of the 2011 Formula 1 season after posting a definite upswing in performance in qualifying, followed by robust race from Fernando Alonso.
