Silverstone 2009: Pitstop & Tyre Strategies

Below is the table for the pitstop strategies for the British Grand Prix, showing that most drivers opted for a two-stopper at Silverstone. The only drivers to attempt a one-stop race were Nelson Piquet Jr and Adrian Sutil. The tyres were fairly evenly matched as well, with many drivers complaining that they couldn’t get them up to temperature. Brawn particularly struggled with this, although Ferrari seemed to have improved significantly in this area. Only two drivers retired at Silverstone; Sebastien Bourdais and Heikki Kovalainen.
