The car weights are yet to be published from this afternoon’s qualifying session, but already we can see who is looking keyed into the Silverstone circuit and who is struggling. You can’t rule out Jenson Button for a victory tomorrow, but you have to say he hasn’t made his life easy by qualifying in P6. The Red Bulls are looking good and Rubens Barrichello clearly loves driving around the Northamptonshire track.
Can Button recover and win on home soil, repeating Lewis Hamilton’s triumph from last year? Or will Mark Webber finaly beat his demons and take his maiden victory? Which for Webber, incidentally, is like a second home race as the Australian lives in the UK. Or will Sebastian Vettel make it two wins this season and start to quell the rumours that he cannot win in the dry or overtake other drivers?[poll=”50″]

No one has voted for Jenson Button (so far). That has to be a first…
While I think Vettel or Webber will triumph, I would like to see Nakajima do well. Hopefully he can get some points out of this race.
How did Jenson Button get a -1%? Even a non-voted driver is 0%…
Ooo err. That is odd. It’s messed up the percentages. 56 + 22 + 11 + 6 + 6 = 101. Then, as Button was at the bottom, it presumably decided to drop a unit to it to make it balance. How strange. I smell a bug and will check it out when I post for the German Grand Prix in a couple of weeks.
