(Mark Webber; Source: f1fanatic.co.uk)

Round 10 of 19(Silverstone, UK: July 11, 2010)

Those were the razor sharp words of Mark Webber’s vengeance upon his winning the British GP after crossing the line that echoed round the world via the FIA’s replaying of his radio transmission...

As the Aussie was still fuming a day later after all of the contretemps during Qualifying where Master ‘Zebb’s nose, Err his RB6’s nose fell off in Saturday morning’s practice and then was given Webber’s front nose, as it was the only one of higher specification remaining – with the Team claiming it would give the latest developments to it’s current points leader... (Or whom the Team was allegedly favouring?) Hmm? And Austrian Team and a German driver, as Vettel used his new nose to snatch another Pole away from Webber.

And thus after Webber ‘N Vettel tussled on the race’s opening lap, with the Aussie NOT to be denied and ‘Zebb getting a flat tyre after incurring kerbing damage, Err contact with ‘Louise “JAGUAR” Hamilton’s front wing... Webber set sail for the chequered flag! As Vettel was fortunate to recover to seventh place after another entertaining Safety Car period, whilst the Scuderia walloped away Mid-pack, as adding insult to injury, Fredrico Suave, nee Fred Alonso wasn’t allowed to serve his Drive-thru penalty until after the Safety Car period was over...
