Felipe Massa believes Formula 1′s return to fast venues like Silverstone will help Ferrari get back on terms with Red Bull. The recent venues of Monaco and Montreal have not played to the strengths of the Ferrari package, and Massa’s team-mate Fernando Alonso has lost ground to Sebastian Vettel in the drivers’ championship. But rather than feel that the last two outings are an indication that Ferrari’s development push has stalled, Massa thinks that the next few races will show that the Maranello outfit can still deliver the form that has helped it win two races so far this year

It was business as usual as the field moved to Watkins Glen with Gernot Fritsche taking maximum points in the week’s Classic Team Championship battles, narrowing the gap to series leader Nuno Moreira by 11 points. Watkins Glen is usually a popular track, often boasting the highest participation of the entire season for any series, and this week proved to be no different as 159 drivers took part in 18 online race starts during the course of seven days. Peter Duggan, David Ballew and Jean-Francois Boscus made the most starts during the course of the week, each registering seven starts, although only Duggan was able to win any of his races. He finished with three victories but poor results elsewhere resulted in him only scoring 101 points while the other [...]

Lewis Hamilton – 3rd: “The car felt fantastic today and I had good grip for the low-speed corners but we just weren’t quite on the pace of Seb and Fernando. I was on the maximum that I could possibly drive and we got absolutely everything out of the car today. It would have been nice to have kept second place of course but Fernando was very quick today and it was difficult to keep him behind.
