“It was crazy out there!” – Jenson wins final 2012 Grand Prix in Brasil

JENSON WINS THE FINAL 2012 GRAND PRIX IN BRASIL: “It was crazy out there!”FARO congratulates the Vodafone McLaren team, especially Jenson Button, on his millimetre-perfect race and the brilliant management of the changeable and challenging weather conditions at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, Interlagos, Brasil.

Last Sunday after the extremely exciting race, the very last in this season, Jenson Button said: “The conditions were always going to trigger plenty of action, because some cars could generate the required tyre temperatures and others couldn’t. So, for most of the race, you were on a tyre that didn’t feel quite right for the conditions, but for which the lap-times looked okay compared with those of the cars on the other tyre.

“The Safety Car made life more difficult for us – we lost the 40-second buffer we’d built up – but then the rain really came down, and the race became all about choosing the best time to switch to the Inters.”

“Last but not least, congratulations to Sebastian [Vettel]. To win three world championships in a row is a great achievement.”

Another victory for the McLaren Vodafone Team!

Another victory for the McLaren Vodafone TeamFARO congratulates the McLaren Vodafone team, especially Lewis Hamilton, on its phenomenal performance last Sunday at the Autodromo Nationale di Monza!

After winning his 20th grand prix Lewis Hamilton said: “Winning at Monza is one of the greatest experiences of my Formula 1 career.”

Hamilton: “Since I started in Formula 1, Monza has been one of the races I always wanted to win at – it’s such an incredible, historic circuit and all the great racing drivers have won here. To finally put my name on that list makes me feel extremely proud, but also very humble.”

For the McLaren team it was the 180th victory.

Martin Whitmarsh, Team principal, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes

“Winning is what Vodafone McLaren Mercedes is all about.

Lewis has now closed up to second place in the drivers’ world championship, with seven grands prix still to run. It was his third victory of the season, and Vodafone McLaren Mercedes’ fifth. The momentum is with us, and the drivers’ world championship crown is well within Lewis’s grasp. In the constructors’ championship, too, we’re in good shape.”

Jenson wins his 50th GP with McLaren

Jenson Button celebrates winning his 50th Grand Prix at McLaren with a fantastic drive in Belgium last weekend – a superb start to the second half of the 2012 F1 World Championship. Congratulations from FARO!

After this amazing race, Jenson Button said:

“We need to score big points in both world championships – and today was exactly what we required. I’m a massive team-player, and I fight for the team; I want us to win both world championships and, until I can’t mathematically fight for the drivers’ world championship, I won’t give up on it. I think I showed that today.”

Spa-Francorchamps, Sunday September 2

179th        victory for McLaren

75th          victory for McLaren, Mobil 1, Mercedes-Benz and Enkei

50th          race for Jenson with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes

31st           victory for Vodafone McLaren Mercedes

14th          victory for Jenson

4th            victory of the season for Vodafone McLaren Mercedes

2nd           successive victory for Vodafone McLaren Mercedes

Martin Whitmarsh, Team principal, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes

“Jenson performed quite majestically all weekend.

“In so doing, he made it look easy. But, when a driver manages a race win from pole position, leading all the way, the excellence of his performance isn’t always as obvious as when he wins it by attacking from behind. But Jenson has been super-quick all weekend, and he controlled the race with total authority, managing tyre wear masterfully all the way. It wasn’t easy, even if it looked that way, and I’m extremely proud of him, as is everyone at Vodafone McLaren Mercedes.”
