Front runners garages moved into middle of the pit lane for British GP

Published

on

Front runners garages have been replaced to the middle area of the pit-lane for 2012 British GP; last year F1 fans can’t see the top teams pit garages. This year Fans will be see the top team pit.

Adamcooperf1 reports:- last year in Silverstone launched new pit complex and the Red Bull, McLaren, Ferrari and Mercedes garages moved out into the strange ‘railway cutting’ at the far end of the pit-lane, and could not be seen from the spectator area opposite.

Other main trouble was in new Silverstone pit lane, Red Bull garage was near on the white line marking the pit exit that its drivers were not able to speed up to the speed boundary before crossing it, which created a small difficulty at each stop.

FOM and FIA has been changed this problems for this season. But on a one-off basis instead of the World Champions being at one end and the remaining teams laid out in 2011 championship order, the top teams have been put in the middle, and the rest spread out on either side.

“The pit lane is a little bit unusual,” McLaren’s Martin Whitmarsh told adamcooperf1.

“Last year some of us enjoyed no view of the stands, and consequently presumably they enjoyed no view of us. It’s easy after the event to be critical of that. But this year we will have a different garage allocation, and we’ll see a bit of sun in our garage.

“We’re more or less in the middle. No one’s explained exactly why! I imagine the desire is to put us in front of the grandstand, which is a good thing. If I was a grandstand ticket buyer and I got there and I couldn’t see my favorite teams, I’d be a bit non-plussed by it.”
