Results of the British GP Heroes survey

Jim Clark turned out to be our ultimate British GP hero, thanks to his 5 home race wins and two driver’s championships. He came in just ahead of Jackie Stewart, with the pair finishing a country mile clear of Nigel Mansell who took the final place on the podium. There were a number of surprising results further down the order, with Welshman Tom Pryce finishing up in 9th place and Damon Hill amazingly failing to attract votes from any of the judges!

Mark, are you free to call you own last stop?

[Chinese GP press conference quotes from Mark Webber] Q: (Tony Dodgins – Motorsport News) Mark, looking back at that last race, just before the last pit stop, I think you were leading the race by about four and a half seconds if I’m right, and yet Seb had the first stop and that obviously created the situation. Are you free to call your own last stops, was it a team decision and did that surprise you? How did that arise? MW: Yeah, it was a little bit of a surprise.

Did Webber consider Quitting?

Here’s Mark’s response from #ChinaGP.  “Well, first of all, I’m definitely keen to finish the season off. Obviously a lot of people were even questioning that one which was certainly not something that was in my mind. I’m definitely keen to race this year and put together a very strong campaign and challenge for more wins, and you do enough of that and some more things can happen. So that’s the first goal.
