Thank you very much for staying with us and moving over to the BBC

0:00:030:00:11

Two channel. We are still under safety car conditions. No sign of

0:00:110:00:21
0:00:210:00:27

the safety car coming in. It is yet to make it to half distance. And

0:00:270:00:31

thank you very much to the BBC One viewers. We are now moving over to

0:00:310:00:41
0:00:410:00:41

BBC Two. We await the safety car to make the decision. He goes round

0:00:410:00:51
0:00:510:00:58

again. Also on the BBC HD channel as well now as you watch the line

0:00:580:01:05

of 23 cars illegally awaiting the restart of this Canadian Grand Prix.

0:01:050:01:09

-- eagerly awaiting the start. Just to remind you that Lewis Hamilton

0:01:090:01:19
0:01:190:01:20

is out. He had contact with his team-mate, Jenson Button. There

0:01:200:01:24

were pieces of his car flying up hitting the if pit boards that the

0:01:240:01:29

mechanics were holding up. A close encounter with the pit wall. Ted,

0:01:290:01:33

what is the weather looking like? It is bright sunshine in the pit

0:01:330:01:37

lane. More drivers have been on the radio saying it is fine to get

0:01:370:01:43

going. OK, the drivers think it is fine to get going. We think it is

0:01:430:01:46

fine to get going but that is not the message we are getting at the

0:01:460:01:56
0:01:560:01:57

moment. And still no sign of any change in that. Just coasting

0:01:570:02:02

around. The left foot on the brake pedal, right foot on the loud pedal

0:02:020:02:07

trying to put some energy into those brakes and tyres. Presumably,

0:02:070:02:13

there are still drivers out there saying it is too wet. But we have a

0:02:130:02:18

semi dry line down at the hairpin. Surely, the safety car will come in

0:02:180:02:21

on this lap? A little better standing water coming in off the

0:02:210:02:28

racing line. As their head down to what is normally a 200 mile an hour

0:02:280:02:33

straight. The safety car lights are not out so he will take a right and

0:02:330:02:41

they left to start just another lap. DAVID COULTHARD: I do not think it

0:02:410:02:45

is an issue with standing water. It must be the guy is complaining

0:02:450:02:54

about visibility. Do you think it is time twos dark racing? -- to

0:02:540:03:02

start racing. It is about there. Jenson is ready to go. It will

0:03:020:03:08

surely be this lap as they ran down into the first corner. They will be

0:03:080:03:12

visualising the restart. Obviously, it is a concertina effect which

0:03:120:03:19

makes it difficult to get up close. They can overtake into the chicane.

0:03:190:03:24

I think you can -- you should abseil down the commentary box and

0:03:240:03:28

stand in the middle of the chicane and wave your arms that the safety

0:03:280:03:34

can't tell him to get off the track. I cannot see any standing water at

0:03:340:03:38

all on the racing line, especially as they are all on the extreme wet

0:03:380:03:43

weather tyres. You can hear the rough sounding engine which is the

0:03:430:03:50

exhaust blaring on the throttle with the throttle being lifted off.

0:03:500:03:56

Lewis is listening to the BBC commentary. Those systems are going

0:03:560:04:00

to stop from the British Grand Prix onwards where the teams are not

0:04:000:04:04

allowed to do that. A lot of people are saying it will hurt Red Bull.

0:04:040:04:09

It will certainly change how the drivers attack the slow corners.

0:04:090:04:13

They get on the throttle. The system going away. I think they

0:04:130:04:17

will be limited to 10 % of open throttle after the British Grand

0:04:170:04:23

Prix. Manic rewriting of the codes of the engines there. But does not

0:04:230:04:28

our problem today. Our problem today is the safety car is still on

0:04:280:04:34

the racetrack. They are heading down the back straight again.

0:04:340:04:38

Amazingly, it seems as if the safety car will go at around one

0:04:380:04:43

more time. The lights are still flashing. He likes it out front of

0:04:430:04:53
0:04:530:04:55

there. Yes, he is going for a laps led record. I feel it in my water,

0:04:550:05:01

Martin, this lap, the safety car in. Not a pleasant thought! That is

0:05:010:05:06

what you said on the last lap. He said he was coming in on the last

0:05:060:05:11

lap. The two Renaults line astern in fourth and fifth. They have had

0:05:110:05:18

a strong weekend. The safety car is in this lap, just as Jerome

0:05:190:05:25

d'Ambrosio. They have put on a set of intermediates. That feels wrong

0:05:250:05:28

to make. We have held the safety car out there and now you have got

0:05:280:05:30

to drive straight on the intermediates because that is how

0:05:300:05:39

the track looks. RADIO: How many laps before intermediates? Probably

0:05:390:05:49
0:05:490:05:50

a few. On racing line it is pretty good. Jenson is saying if this was

0:05:500:05:56

the start of the race proper, I would have the intermediates on. He

0:05:560:05:59

experienced them earlier on in the Grand Prix which were working well

0:05:590:06:05

for him but in a narrow window of time. Let's see what Kobayashi can

0:06:050:06:11

do. This is his moment. It is his big moment to see if he can leave -

0:06:110:06:19

- lead this Grand Prix. I think Sebastian Vettel would be more

0:06:190:06:24

comfortable having Massa behind him. Vettel takes over and becomes the

0:06:240:06:29

safety car effectively controlling the pace of the pack. It is so easy

0:06:290:06:33

to run into another driver in those circumstances. Vettel has bolted,

0:06:330:06:38

he is going for it. He does not want care by Ashley anywhere near

0:06:380:06:48
0:06:480:06:49

him. Massa is closer to Kobayashi. Paul di Resta et is down the

0:06:490:06:53

outside. Massa is so close to Kobayashi. What will they do when

0:06:530:06:58

they get down to turn one? Will Felipe Massa have a chance to take

0:06:580:07:05

back that position? Kobayashi has a better line. They will be so close

0:07:050:07:11

into two. Great driving by Kobayashi. Mark Webber in seventh

0:07:110:07:21
0:07:210:07:21

place. Schumacher has cumin also as has it will, presumably for

0:07:210:07:28

intermediate tyres. Glock, Barrichello and Buemi are all

0:07:280:07:32

trying to take advantage of the situation. They are scampering into

0:07:320:07:39

the pit lane. Which of the frontrunners will try the

0:07:390:07:44

intermediate so again? They all got caught out last time? At the moment,

0:07:440:07:50

the sky looks significantly clearer. Interestingly, it looks like

0:07:500:07:57

Kobayashi has opened up a little bit the gap to massive. -- to

0:07:570:08:07
0:08:070:08:12

second lead. Nico Rosberg has fallen back down the field. It

0:08:120:08:17

looks like he has had a drama somewhere. Vettel leads at the end

0:08:170:08:25

of this first complete lap. We're just making half-distance. We have

0:08:250:08:33

an investigation going on as well. Di Resta is in the pits as well. A

0:08:330:08:38

long wait for the safety car to get out of the way I now drivers are

0:08:380:08:43

saying the track is so dry, they would like a set of intermediates.

0:08:430:08:50

Button is pitting as well. By a long line of drivers pitting. Off

0:08:500:08:55

Button goes down the pit lane, 62 miles an hour until he gets to the

0:08:550:09:05
0:09:050:09:05

speed line and then he can let it go. D'Ambrosio has a drive-through

0:09:050:09:10

penalty for having incorrect tyres. Presumably, the safety car had not

0:09:100:09:16

gone in at that time. And we have the Force India across the grass at

0:09:160:09:21

turn three. It was so still. Jenson Button right behind him. Look at

0:09:210:09:27

this for a traffic jam. Michael Schumacher is in there as well.

0:09:270:09:34

has pitted, of course. He has abettors traffic in front of him.

0:09:340:09:44
0:09:440:09:47

He has an HRT in front of him. Look at all that slow traffic. Is that

0:09:470:09:55

Sutil? There is a long line of cars. Sutil coming round the outside of

0:09:550:10:01

the Lotus of Jarno Trulli. And Sutil goes into deep. Button comes

0:10:010:10:08

up the inside. Then another stream of cars in the pits. We have both

0:10:080:10:13

the Ferraris in. They will have to queue up. Did I see that correctly?

0:10:130:10:19

Alonso will have to queue up behind. He will have to lose even more time.

0:10:190:10:25

And unsafe release from Ferrari. A bit of confusion. The Ferrari

0:10:250:10:28

mechanics were looking down the pit lane saying, what are you doing

0:10:280:10:37

here as well? It is all kicking off out there. Be track begins to dry.

0:10:370:10:43

Ted is there. It was a nightmare. The Ferrari boys did all they could

0:10:430:10:48

but Fernando Alonso lost loads of places, including two Nico Rosberg.

0:10:480:10:53

He will have to regain place is at on track. With Virgin, it was a

0:10:530:10:56

case of not knowing the rules. When you restart a race under the safety

0:10:560:11:04

tyres on. We have a Ferrari of. Fernando Alonso has beached the

0:11:040:11:12

Ferrari. It is in the second chicane. It is turn three. And I

0:11:120:11:18

think that correctly? It looks like a 3 and four. The safety car, our

0:11:180:11:26

favourite car of the day, has been deployed. Button has got a puncture.

0:11:260:11:34

I wonder if there has been contact? I wonder if Jenson Button and

0:11:340:11:40

Fernando Alonso got together somewhere. Vettel again making the

0:11:400:11:45

best of some free space at the front. It keeps falling into place

0:11:450:11:50

for Red Bull. A set of intermediate tyres go one. That was as sweet as

0:11:500:11:57

you want. That was a beautiful pit stop. Let's have a look at this.

0:11:570:12:03

Yes, it was Button up the inside of Alonso. Alonso did not want to

0:12:030:12:10

yield and contact. That is Jenson's second contact of the afternoon. We

0:12:100:12:18

will see from behind the Mercedes. Jenson up the inside of the Ferrari.

0:12:180:12:24

Jenson said, I am coming through. Unfortunately, Jenson with a

0:12:240:12:28

damaged left front. Will his steering arm be damaged? Well that

0:12:280:12:35

tyre do any further bodywork damage as he coaxes it back to the pits?

0:12:350:12:38

How did you see that? It looked like there was enough room for them

0:12:380:12:48
0:12:480:12:53

to get through. As it tightened off on slippery paint, that is a

0:12:530:12:58

vacated cockpit for Fernando Alonso. If he gets pushed out of there,

0:12:580:13:04

he's in a dangerous position. He might be allowed to carried on.

0:13:040:13:08

Maybe he was just ticking over and hoping someone might push him out

0:13:080:13:18
0:13:180:13:19

of that position. There was some contact on the rear wing. True. The

0:13:190:13:24

McLaren of Button, in the pits for the 4th time, I believe it is,

0:13:240:13:31

today. Make that five. So, four pit stops and a drive through for

0:13:320:13:35

Button for exceeding the speed limit behind the safety car early

0:13:350:13:41

on. Ted was down at McLaren. Front suspension looks OK. The nose was

0:13:410:13:44

damaged, as were the rims on the front left. The chief mechanic had

0:13:440:13:50

a look at it and the left side is OK. Don't worry, Jenson, the race

0:13:500:13:55

is just over half over at the moment. Plenty of time, the way

0:13:560:13:59

this race is unfolding, who knows what is going to happen? Here is

0:13:590:14:04

the replay. Take us through it. Jenson is fairly on the inside. You

0:14:040:14:10

know, I think Ben Ando was out of view. If they gave him room, on the

0:14:100:14:13

apex, it would be the right position for the left-hand part of

0:14:130:14:17

that part of the chicane. It was always going to be a bit of a

0:14:170:14:21

closing gap. He was relying a lot on the fact that Jenson was able to

0:14:210:14:26

slow the car. We are going to have to call that a racing incident.

0:14:260:14:31

Only one at daytime through there, it's hard enough by yourself.

0:14:310:14:34

but those are two highly skilled people. You might imagine that

0:14:340:14:38

they'd be able to find their way through. Fernando gave him space to

0:14:380:14:44

have his car in there. You could argue that he was trying to recover

0:14:440:14:47

a lost position. But that is what you are meant to do a racing

0:14:470:14:57

situation. Fernando Alonso was six in the Racing Championship. People

0:14:570:15:02

scored no points today. Let's remind you of the running order.

0:15:020:15:12

That is now all shaken out. We got three cars out of the race. Alonso,

0:15:120:15:18

Kovalainen, Button is out in last place, I believe, 21st. He will

0:15:180:15:28
0:15:280:15:28

catch the pack. He will be 21st. Vettel, he leads from Kobayashi in

0:15:280:15:38
0:15:380:15:39

the Sauber. Felipe Massa is third for Ferrari. Mark Webber gains a

0:15:390:15:42

place, sixth. Michael Schumacher, we've seen lots of overtaking from

0:15:420:15:51

him. He's 7th. Petrov his 8th for Renault. Rosberg is the 9th. Sutil

0:15:510:16:00

is second, Force India is 10th. Rubens Barrichello is 11th. Abbas

0:16:000:16:09

Zhari, Buemi, Toro Rosso, 13th and 14th. D'Ambrosio, we saw him coming

0:16:090:16:16

in the earlier. At the moment he showing in 15th place. You're not

0:16:160:16:20

allowed to take a penalty during a safety car period. He may have to

0:16:200:16:24

take that afterwards. I don't know, I've not been watching. The

0:16:240:16:29

incident is under investigation. We've got a replay going on here of

0:16:290:16:39
0:16:390:16:39

the cars... Heidfeld must have passed him on track. But Massa was

0:16:390:16:49
0:16:490:16:51

ahead of him in the queue. Timo Glock is 16th. De la Rosa or. Well,

0:16:510:16:55

Jenson Button is restricted to the safety car speed now. He will

0:16:550:17:00

struggle to catch the pack too much. He might be there by the time they

0:17:000:17:10
0:17:100:17:20

get under way. Jenson, way out back is what you called a racing

0:17:200:17:30
0:17:300:17:31

closely at that. We need a few more camera angles to see if he was just

0:17:310:17:35

closing the door too much John Jenson. Jenson had the inside line,

0:17:360:17:45

he can't make his car disappear. learned that lesson in Monaco. We

0:17:450:17:52

saw different angles after the race and it looked completely different.

0:17:520:17:55

Kobayashi asleep once more. Massa is not, he's right with him. To

0:17:550:17:59

remind you, when they get to the safety car line, they can start

0:17:590:18:07

doing some overtaking. Kobayashi is lying off on the brakes. Lots of

0:18:070:18:12

action going on down the field. Once again it is the world champion

0:18:120:18:14

and the championship leader Sebastian Vettel who clears the

0:18:140:18:20

line. He's one second ahead on the restart already. Jenson Button has

0:18:200:18:25

just about caught the back of this snake, as he crosses the line. A

0:18:250:18:29

couple of seconds adrift, but he'll be right in amongst the action.

0:18:290:18:39
0:18:390:18:41

Looking to take off those two HRTs. The track surface is slippery

0:18:410:18:46

insect 11. It looks pretty slippery in all of the sectors to me. Mark

0:18:460:18:52

Webber fends off a Schumacher move in to turn six. The old rain master

0:18:520:18:58

himself, Michael Schumacher, looking pretty handy this afternoon.

0:18:580:19:03

He will be happy with the progress is making. Seventh place, looking

0:19:030:19:07

for that area with the least amount of rubber. Interesting that Mark

0:19:070:19:17
0:19:170:19:22

Webber was absolutely on the normal is so easy to lose a front wing,

0:19:220:19:25

lock your brake, and you have to brake late into the hairpin

0:19:250:19:28

otherwise you will be marked. Michael Schumacher dropped back a

0:19:290:19:34

little bit there. Mark Webber is in the slipstream of Paul Di Resta.

0:19:340:19:38

Dorest days in only his 7th Grand Prix, doing a fine job. Having a

0:19:380:19:48
0:19:480:20:03

good look at the back of my head coming back to that battle between

0:20:030:20:09

Webber and Di Resta, Di Resta's top speed is about four seconds quicker.

0:20:090:20:15

Looks good at the moment, Nico, still looks good. There's been some

0:20:150:20:19

contact, he's worrying if he had a puncture. He obviously had an

0:20:190:20:26

incident somewhere. Is it contact with Sutil or something? On the

0:20:260:20:32

restart, yes. It's what I was talking about earlier, how you can

0:20:320:20:35

break your front wing. That was behind the safety car. Now Rosberg

0:20:350:20:41

has got Barrichello for company. This is a replay. Barrichello,

0:20:410:20:46

taking the position. It all went horribly wrong for Nico Rosberg.

0:20:470:20:51

Well, it wasn't exactly going well for Adrian Sutil. You're going to

0:20:510:20:59

lose your front wing, going into... Weather wide, well out of shade!

0:20:590:21:02

Sue Macca cruises past Mark Webber. Too hot on the throttle. Michael

0:21:020:21:12
0:21:120:21:13

Schumacher takes over sixth place. Damaged front wing. You've broken

0:21:130:21:18

the front wing. So, Dorest DEC, he half-heartedly left the front of

0:21:180:21:23

his car in the action. Surely, that's going to give him horrible

0:21:230:21:28

understeer. He can barely get into turn one. The worst place for it to

0:21:280:21:33

happen, where he cannot turn into the pit lane. He has to do a full

0:21:330:21:39

lap. He will be losing chunks of time. Disappointment. Experience, a

0:21:390:21:42

half-hearted move. It's like a half-hearted football tackle. You

0:21:420:21:47

can't do it. Very wide in five, he's got to be careful that he

0:21:470:21:54

doesn't get sucked into the barrier. Schumacher and Webber go through.

0:21:540:21:59

And he will get a new front wing when he gets into the pits. As long

0:21:590:22:02

as he doesn't throw into the barriers meanwhile, he's still

0:22:020:22:07

fighting with petrol. But he needs to be careful. Look, he's lost his

0:22:070:22:17
0:22:170:22:22

wheel. You have so much less grip Webber is coming back. Michael

0:22:220:22:27

Schumacher. So, the incident between Button and Alonso will be

0:22:270:22:32

investigated after the race, we are reading. What a great fight going

0:22:320:22:36

on. Two old hands, Michael Schumacher, Mark Webber, in

0:22:360:22:41

challenging conditions. Kobayashi is holding Massa off very nicely

0:22:410:22:46

indeed. A long line of cars into that final chicane. They are

0:22:460:22:51

pulling a bit of lateral down there, they've got some grip. This, I'm

0:22:510:22:58

afraid, was just clumsy. Will give him credit where it is due, but

0:22:580:23:04

that is not good driving. No point and taking that risk, in my view.

0:23:040:23:07

Its one of the fastest points on the track. He made his decision

0:23:070:23:12

before breaking. A little sniff up the inside. Unfortunately, it was

0:23:120:23:17

always going to be an ever closing door. You thought you had to slice

0:23:170:23:21

past them, didn't you, stop them turning in and then make your turn

0:23:210:23:25

into the corner? Well, that's true. But sometimes you've got to

0:23:250:23:31

position yourself why he is going to brake, it's wet, he'll brake

0:23:310:23:34

early, il brake that bit earlier. You've got to sort it out before

0:23:340:23:40

the apex. A drive-through penalty for car 13, Adrian Sutil,

0:23:400:23:43

overtaking behind the safety car. I didn't see the overtaking, but I

0:23:430:23:53
0:23:530:23:55

certainly saw him running into Nico Rosberg. He is about to have his

0:23:550:23:57

merits full of Michael Schumacher and Mark Webber. Although he made

0:23:570:24:01

that mistake in the hairpin, to let that mistake in the hairpin, to let

0:24:010:24:05

him through, the Red Bull doesn't appear to have great traction.

0:24:050:24:09

Button is making his way back, up to 15th at the moment. That's

0:24:090:24:13

interesting, Mark Webber is running off-line. While we watch him

0:24:130:24:17

through that last chicane, he's struggling for drive of the hairpin,

0:24:170:24:19

struggling for drive of the hairpin, of the last chicane, relative to

0:24:190:24:29
0:24:290:24:32

Michael Schumacher. It's almost as these tyres. We had one practice

0:24:320:24:36

session in Istanbul. I think this is an adventure for everybody, to

0:24:360:24:40

see how far these tyres will go. What is the crossover point when

0:24:400:24:45

you think about putting a slights on? Epic that will be a very

0:24:450:24:55
0:24:550:24:59

difficult decision indeed. -- he's not swamped by team personnel.

0:24:590:25:04

I'm at McLaren, he's coming towards me. I don't know if he is going to

0:25:040:25:08

come looking for a bit of BAFTAs. Get it out the way, as quickly as

0:25:080:25:13

we can. Get past him. Mercedes, they are readings and tyres.

0:25:130:25:17

Michael Schumacher has been ten laps on these tyres. He was the

0:25:170:25:22

first to pit of last 34. We believe he's into his last ten laps or so.

0:25:220:25:28

It might be the case that the tyres have gone. The intermediate a

0:25:280:25:32

beginning to overheat. They move around and generate extra heat.

0:25:320:25:41

It's a different kind of compound? As Ted has rightly said, the

0:25:410:25:45

projections we have had from Pirelli, and from the teams, as

0:25:450:25:48

Michael Schumacher really hit the kerb on his way into the last

0:25:480:25:52

chicane, and he's in front of Heidfeld. Michael Schumacher is the

0:25:520:26:00

man on the move right now. He'll be in fourth place. Remember, in

0:26:000:26:08

qualifying, we were seeing times down in their 1:13s. We are still a

0:26:080:26:13

long way away. BRS has been unable to. They decided in raised control,

0:26:130:26:19

despite everybody being on a wets, when DNS is not usually allowed,

0:26:190:26:26

they have decided it is suitable for ERS to be enabled. It is a

0:26:260:26:35

double DRS. You get one shot at it all the way down. I think it's 13

0:26:350:26:38

seconds of full throttle towards the final chicane. And then you get

0:26:380:26:43

a second bite of DRS, even if you have overtaken the other driver,

0:26:430:26:47

down to the first corner. Which I think would be proper scary, it you

0:26:470:26:51

see them going side by side, one with his rear wing open. He hits

0:26:510:26:58

the brake pedal, Nick Heidfeld is still fighting off Mark Webber.

0:26:580:27:04

Another investigation of de la Rosa and Heidfeld. The stewards are

0:27:040:27:10

looking at it. Hopefully young Paul is not going to... Paul Di Resta,

0:27:100:27:19

actually. Hopefully Heidfeld and de la Rosa... Di Resta, Surrey, they

0:27:190:27:25

are not going to get another drive through there. Massa has just been

0:27:250:27:29

told to get on with it, move him out of the way was the exact

0:27:290:27:33

instruction. Massa has done the fastest lap of the race so far.

0:27:330:27:38

You've got Mark Webber, Sidley within the doctors activation point.

0:27:380:27:48
0:27:480:27:50

Heidfeld gets a little bit off the from him. That allowing Petrov to

0:27:500:27:54

close the gap. The first set a time, that is three-tenths quicker than

0:27:540:28:04
0:28:040:28:06

good wage coming in to turn that critics. It's going to be difficult

0:28:060:28:11

for him to get within one second when he gets into turn 10.

0:28:110:28:15

measurement point is on the exit of the turn 10 chicane, not on the way

0:28:150:28:25
0:28:250:28:32

in. You can't just hammer the that Red Bull does not have the

0:28:320:28:38

traction of the Renault, as we saw before. He has the gear wing wide

0:28:380:28:43

open and Vitaly Petrov all over his gearbox. He should have the

0:28:430:28:49

advantage, but Vitaly Petrov has to pull back in behind. Unfortunately,

0:28:490:28:56

his team-mate hurt him because his fellow -- his fellow Renault driver

0:28:560:29:02

enabled him to get it open. For some reason, the Red Bull is fast

0:29:020:29:07

around the lap but does not have the traction in these difficult

0:29:070:29:12

conditions. A bit are getting dry lines appearing around the track --

0:29:120:29:18

we are getting. If you have got a little bit of flying, it is

0:29:180:29:27

unforgiving. -- off wind. The last time, you pressed the Button too

0:29:270:29:37
0:29:370:29:37

early so did not get the DFS. are not allowed to pre-selected. --

0:29:370:29:45

to pre-selected. Schumacher is flying, ten-second off the lead at

0:29:450:29:53

the moment. Sebastian Vettel out front, clear of Kamui Kobayashi. 1

0:29:530:30:00

second clear of Felipe Massa. And the stewards had better cancel

0:30:000:30:07

their planes home because they will be busy tonight. And Adrian Sutil

0:30:070:30:13

running into the back of him, behind the safety car. Mark Webber

0:30:130:30:19

having a look at the back of Nick Heidfeld. He is nowhere near him in

0:30:190:30:27

the traction zone, look at the gear wing wide open! -- the gear wing.

0:30:270:30:35

The stern won it is tricky. The Renault has always been good.

0:30:350:30:41

Button is right on the back of Pastor Maldonado. Michael

0:30:410:30:46

Schumacher, a new fastest lap of the race. Four-tenths quicker than

0:30:460:30:56
0:30:560:30:57

Sebastian Vettel who still leads. Jenson Button around the inside. It

0:30:570:31:04

is like train tracks now, isn't it? He was very wide, he missed his

0:31:040:31:10

turn. And that is Jaime Alguersuari getting very wide on the exit. He

0:31:100:31:16

has certainly got rid of him. It is quite bumpy under the bridge into

0:31:160:31:23

turn eight. He would get himself into position into 10 at.

0:31:230:31:33
0:31:330:31:37

Struggling for traction relative to their Toro Rosso. That is why.

0:31:370:31:43

does not even need to be but has pushed wide onto the water. He can

0:31:430:31:53
0:31:530:31:54

open his a wing now. He now has some speed. Forcing him into the

0:31:540:32:04
0:32:040:32:04

outside. That was easy! He made it look easy! And he easily pulls away

0:32:040:32:08

down into the first chicane at. car Schumacher has been off the

0:32:080:32:15

track at turn eight and has continued -- Michael. He has

0:32:150:32:19

responded to try and recover some of that ground. Sebastian Vettel

0:32:190:32:27

leads on lap 50. And Kamui Kobayashi is just ahead of Felipe

0:32:270:32:37
0:32:370:32:37

Massa. Sebastian Vettel seems to be coping with the tyres. So careful

0:32:370:32:43

on the throttle not to generate wheelspin. He starts to look for

0:32:430:32:48

the water on the site of the track. And that begins to disappear as the

0:32:480:32:55

other drivers do the same thing. He needs coolant, that is sitting on

0:32:550:33:00

the site of the racetrack. A drive- through penalty for Paul di Resta

0:33:000:33:10
0:33:100:33:11

for avoiding -- for causing an avoidable collision. Tell us when

0:33:120:33:19

you think you are within three laps... He I think we are not far

0:33:190:33:26

now. That is understood, keep us updated. Mark Webber thinks he is

0:33:260:33:33

there already, he is in the pit. That is the super soft option

0:33:330:33:37

compound, and now we will see something. Are a brave decision,

0:33:370:33:43

but that sort of thing can make a big difference for Mark Webber.

0:33:430:33:49

he makes it to the racetrack, Ted. Rubens Barrichello is also on the

0:33:490:33:59
0:33:590:34:01

softer tyre. But Adrian Sutil came in first. It is tentative. Check

0:34:010:34:08

out Adrian Sutil, look at his times. Non it could, he has a puncture. --

0:34:080:34:15

they are not good. My cup Schumacher has gone past these two!

0:34:150:34:21

-- Michael. In a lot of action. Schumacher has passed Felipe Massa

0:34:210:34:27

and Kamui Kobayashi. And he is surely in second place now!

0:34:270:34:32

Schumacher up flying, brilliant striving. How much longer does he

0:34:320:34:37

wants to go? The fastest lap of the race is Sebastian Vettel, so he is

0:34:370:34:43

happy. And Mark Webber has done his personal best middle sector of the

0:34:430:34:49

Grand Prix already, so he seems initially pretty happy. Schumacher

0:34:490:34:54

just in first place now. It went wrong here for Kamui Kobayashi. He

0:34:540:35:04

went wide Internet, contact with Felipe Massa. -- he went wide. And

0:35:040:35:09

Schumacher went past them and takes second place now. To pancake just

0:35:090:35:14

had to get back on the track and that allows Michael momentum --

0:35:140:35:19

Kamui Kobayashi just had to get back. His strongest performance

0:35:190:35:29
0:35:290:35:29

this year. And that is Button, who presumably has just pitted. As has

0:35:300:35:35

Jaime Alguersuari. And Timo Glock. He went in the pit once for a

0:35:350:35:42

penalty and five times to change his tyres. Mark Webber has done his

0:35:420:35:48

personal best in the first sector. I think we can expect all of the

0:35:480:35:58

cars to be pitting now. Adrian Sutil with suspension damage.

0:35:580:36:05

Schumacher is in. Felipe Massa also. Kamui Kobayashi has gone past. That

0:36:050:36:15
0:36:150:36:19

could be costly for the Sauber driver. Red Bull has a lead over

0:36:190:36:26

Kamui Kobayashi. They made us wait for this action, but it is pretty

0:36:260:36:32

good! It is, and Mark Webber has gone fastest in the middle sector

0:36:320:36:37

so it is clear. Schumacher or struggling for traction. They are

0:36:370:36:47
0:36:470:36:47

running on wet track. Mark Webber is very quick. Sebastian Vettel has

0:36:470:36:57
0:36:570:36:59

to come in now, he has no action -- no option. SUE BARKER: On a charge,

0:36:590:37:05

he pitted from second place -- SUE BARKER:. Vitaly Petrov is in third

0:37:050:37:13

at the moment. And Mark Webber is flying. And a damaged front rink --

0:37:130:37:23
0:37:230:37:24

front wing UN Felipe Massa. Cars all over the place! They are trying

0:37:240:37:34
0:37:340:37:35

to find grip on their tyres. The race leader pits for a fresh set of

0:37:350:37:40

tyres, they do not have to use both compound in this race. Because it

0:37:400:37:45

has been a wet race, that regulation falls away, so they can

0:37:450:37:50

keep running the soft tyre until the end of the Grand Prix, if we

0:37:500:37:55

ever get to it. And we watch Nick Heidfeld into the final corner. And

0:37:550:38:00

it looks pretty certain Felipe Massa has been in the wars with

0:38:000:38:08

that amount of damage. This is the exit of turn seven. That was him

0:38:080:38:17

trying to get past a HRT. He just bounced down the wall, basically.

0:38:170:38:23

Big change the front of rink -- they are changing the front wing.

0:38:230:38:28

Mark was just behind Michael last time passed, we are joining the

0:38:280:38:33

action. Would he risk running off the line? What his engineer tell

0:38:330:38:43

him to be careful of doing an Alonso. Jenson Button has done the

0:38:430:38:47

fastest of the race. But still slower than pole position. Still

0:38:470:38:53

carrying a third of a tank of fuel as we once again see a battle

0:38:530:38:59

between SUE BARKER: And Mark Webber. Button is flying in seventh place -

0:38:590:39:08

- between Michael Schumacher and Mark Webber. Mark Webber comes to

0:39:080:39:18

the inside! He thinks better of it, will he had to go across? He does,

0:39:180:39:22

indeed. Mark Webber getting a little bit too hot. You write

0:39:220:39:32
0:39:320:39:34

faster with that wing Open and half to brake earlier. You do not show

0:39:340:39:43

your hand to my call, you pass him or keep your car online -- show

0:39:430:39:46

your hand to Michael Schumacher. He is in the faster car in these

0:39:460:39:54

conditions. We are on lap 55 of 70. We have just 15 to go, that has

0:39:540:40:03

gone quickly. Sebastian Vettel is in the lead. He had a 10.7 second

0:40:030:40:08

lead over Michael Schumacher before the pit stop. Mark Webber inferred.

0:40:080:40:15

Kamui Kobayashi in fourth. Jenson Button in fifth, back through the

0:40:150:40:25
0:40:250:40:26

field. These drivers are desperately trying to find a place

0:40:260:40:34

on the race track. So easy to lock a break -- a brake and go into the

0:40:340:40:42

driver in front. Black p is on, he is 1.5 seconds faster than the

0:40:420:40:50

leader -- the lap he is on. Button is flying, so is Mark Webber.

0:40:500:40:56

Michael Schumacher has closed the gap by two seconds. Man --

0:40:560:41:02

Sebastian Vettel extremely cautious. The problem is the damp patches.

0:41:020:41:11

Getting off line, as we have seen... He has broken his front wing! None

0:41:110:41:20

of them know where it is! I do not expect any safety car unless there

0:41:200:41:27

is debris on the track. That is scary when you run over your front

0:41:270:41:37

wing, because you have no brakes at the same time. So much grip from

0:41:370:41:40

that Renault and he ran into the back of him as he was waiting for

0:41:400:41:45

Kamui Kobayashi to pick the throttle up. It looks silly, but it

0:41:450:41:51

is easy to do. That was scary, but one of the areas of the track with

0:41:510:41:56

a run-off barrier was easier to go down. It will be interesting to see

0:41:560:42:01

if Kamui Kobayashi has any damage. Frustrating for Renault, who were

0:42:010:42:07

looking for a good result this weekend. A battle again between

0:42:070:42:13

Mark Webber and Michael Schumacher. Butter is catching them like crazy!

0:42:130:42:23
0:42:230:42:24

-- Jenson Button. He is quicker than a week of Sebastian Vettel. A

0:42:240:42:28

bit of a lead -- a bit of traffic ahead of him, Jerome d'Ambrosio. It

0:42:280:42:33

would be so easy to pick up a pub shut. And normally, they would

0:42:330:42:43
0:42:430:42:43

throw a safety car. -- a safety car. And we have got it. That is a

0:42:430:42:52

sensible move. Have they picked up a lead us? They have not. The

0:42:520:42:56

leader is down, and this is interesting. And this works

0:42:560:43:01

beautifully, because it closes the pack up, they are all lapping

0:43:010:43:06

significantly faster than Sebastian Vettel, and they will now cruise up

0:43:060:43:16
0:43:160:43:18

behind him forget another safety Button it is bad. The reason he was

0:43:180:43:23

going so quickly is that he was the first one on to this tyre, on lap

0:43:230:43:29

51, the dry tyre. That's why it, he had good heats on it, but it takes

0:43:290:43:34

so long to get good heat in to it. Vettel is struggling to get

0:43:340:43:40

temperature, but now the fight has been neutralised. Well, I still

0:43:400:43:44

think that Jenson would be quite... He was 13 seconds ahead -- adrift

0:43:440:43:49

of the leader, albeit catching up two second a lap, and do a lot of

0:43:490:43:53

that work is now going to be done for him, as they pick their way

0:43:530:43:56

through the debris, all of the sharp edges of the carbon fibre

0:43:560:44:04

that gets sent up into the sky like confetti. Heidfeld's Renault have

0:44:040:44:09

digested its own front wing. You can hear, that is the rough sound

0:44:090:44:14

again Jon's, where they go on to four cylinders for better traction

0:44:140:44:18

through the exit. They are feeding the underneath of the car with hot

0:44:180:44:24

exhaust gases to help the downforce. Yet another device to clear cast

0:44:240:44:30

off the track. An old-fashioned style circuit, the barriers are

0:44:300:44:34

right alongside the racetrack. Let's just remind ourselves of

0:44:340:44:41

where everybody is at. Still, they haven't picked up Vettel with the

0:44:410:44:49

safety car, about to do so. They left the runners go through. This

0:44:490:44:53

is a replay of the Heidfeld incident. Looks like Kobayashi got

0:44:530:44:57

a little bit wide as he went through turn two. Heidfeld, on the

0:44:570:45:01

other hand, he aced the apex and said, right, I'll get on to the

0:45:010:45:07

power. The end result was that the front wing fell under the car and

0:45:070:45:11

sent him off. He gets wide on to the wet. Nick Heidfeld hasn't

0:45:110:45:17

recognised that. They now throttle on in the slow corners. That's why.

0:45:170:45:20

You've got this unusual situation, you never used to go through a slow

0:45:200:45:25

corner with your fudge buried into the throttle. Nearly stopped, I

0:45:250:45:34

don't know what he was doing there. OK. I can tell him what he was

0:45:340:45:44
0:45:440:45:46

doing, on the damp patch, he made a brake tested me. We don't believe

0:45:460:45:49

that the sow back as the hot blown exhaust. They don't use that to

0:45:490:45:53

draw full in the slow corner. I feel sorry for Nick Heidfeld. Or he

0:45:530:46:03
0:46:030:46:12

was tried to do was used the grip pretty. They haven't rehearsed that.

0:46:120:46:22
0:46:220:46:42

that knows change at the 11th. There were any his 12th. De la Rosa

0:46:420:46:52
0:46:520:46:56

or his 13th.... His 15th, Liuzzi is 17. Out of the Grand Prix, Nick

0:46:560:47:01

Heidfeld. Fernando Alonso, Kovalainen, Lewis Hamilton. We have

0:47:010:47:07

19 runners, somehow, Romanian this Grand Prix. And I think we've got,

0:47:070:47:12

ourselves, an incredible grandstand finish to this race. Vettel looks

0:47:120:47:17

like he's got the pace to control things. Under normal dry weather

0:47:170:47:20

conditions, which the racing line is, Michael Schumacher has not been

0:47:200:47:24

as quick as Mark Webber or Jenson Button. The man on the move before

0:47:240:47:29

the safety car was Jenson Button. The pace was incredible. Does

0:47:290:47:34

Sebastian Vettel have enough in hand to open up a little bit of a

0:47:340:47:37

gap? Does Michael Schumacher have enough to keep it on the racing

0:47:370:47:42

line and make it difficult for Marc Webb and Jenson Button? Mark is a

0:47:420:47:48

situation where before he was the predator, he's become the prey.

0:47:480:47:52

the third time we've had four safety cars in this Grand Prix.

0:47:520:47:58

2007 was the last time. But we haven't finished yet. Still plenty

0:47:580:48:02

of debris about, especially as that is an overtaking spot, down into

0:48:020:48:09

three. Still a little bit damp out there. Who is that between Webber

0:48:090:48:19
0:48:190:48:33

and Button?... Is currently between. in front been on six? Vettel put

0:48:330:48:43
0:48:430:48:51

his slicks on two laps after us. age of tyres. They wouldn't have

0:48:510:48:55

hit Demos hard as under normal, dry conditions. The man they used to

0:48:550:49:00

call the new Schumacher, who has become the current Sebastian Vettel,

0:49:000:49:06

fending off, he leads the restart, fending off a man who must have

0:49:060:49:11

been and remains a great hero to him, Michael Schumacher. He has

0:49:110:49:14

legged it Again of the hairpin, which he likes to do. He has given

0:49:140:49:24
0:49:240:49:25

the safety car enough of a Martian. -- margin. DRS is not enabled. Sue

0:49:250:49:30

Mattek is down the outside. Yellow flags waving for some reason.

0:49:300:49:36

Presumably, the safety car was still in range. Away they go. We

0:49:360:49:39

wait two laps for the DRS to be enabled after the safety car

0:49:390:49:46

restart. Button has cleared the back marker. Webber is again all

0:49:460:49:52

over the back of Michael Schumacher. This is going to be a titanic scrap.

0:49:520:49:56

Vettel was being too cautious on the slicks. They were catching him,

0:49:560:50:01

hand over fist. Michael, with two wheels on the damp as he goes over

0:50:010:50:11

five. Mark Webber is soon to have a mirror full of Jenson Button. No d

0:50:110:50:14

r s, we know that there are no special tools to giddy the extra

0:50:140:50:22

speed on the straight. But The Is in fourth place. Someone will have

0:50:220:50:27

to sit him down at the end and explain what went on. Webber, so

0:50:270:50:32

close to Schumacher. Sue Macca, very late on the brakes. -- Sue

0:50:320:50:42
0:50:420:51:09

he doesn't need to start risking it the corners. He may not be quite as

0:51:090:51:13

quick in the terms. You can see Mark Webber, going against what I

0:51:140:51:21

was saying in the run-out of turn two. On the latter part of the lap,

0:51:210:51:24

with the DRS activation point, Michael Schumacher seems to be able

0:51:240:51:29

to get off that turn well. The real issue is that Mark Webber has

0:51:290:51:35

Jenson Button all over the back of him. It's going to be a Dan Dare

0:51:350:51:42

move, on the damp stuff, for somebody to have a move. It's hard

0:51:420:51:47

to get in the line, right behind another driver. You go right to the

0:51:470:51:52

edge of the damp patch, but you don't want to touch, because you

0:51:520:52:02

know it will suck you into it. Look at the water off the racing line.

0:52:020:52:12
0:52:120:52:14

Schumacher's wife, she doesn't want new lap. Michael Schumacher, then,

0:52:140:52:21

he is so badly wanted a comeback podium. By to justify his decision.

0:52:210:52:28

Big yellow flags are wading. What is going on in turns or two.

0:52:280:52:37

Somebody has just spun a. Now they've got green. Something in the

0:52:370:52:47
0:52:470:52:59

pitied. Schumacher is just behind Vettel. It is now a question of

0:52:590:53:04

which two of these three are going to be... Look at that! I enough

0:53:040:53:08

grip out there. Schumacher is really bringing it out. He was

0:53:080:53:16

extremely wide, but also Mark Webber. DRS is enacted. Now we are

0:53:160:53:20

going to see how effective it is. Two Straits from the hairpin to the

0:53:200:53:25

final chicane and all the way down into the first corner. Michael

0:53:250:53:27

Schumacher is a sitting target. Look at the difference it is

0:53:270:53:33

making! Where there goes down the outside. He's lost his left front!

0:53:330:53:38

Here have to allow Michael back past. That, Jenson Button has got

0:53:380:53:43

DRS, presumably. He will habit, he was close behind. Weather must give

0:53:430:53:48

that place back, or he'll get a penalty. He surely gained a place.

0:53:480:53:54

There he goes. He's not going to let Button through at the same time.

0:53:540:54:02

Can he measure it? Great stuff. Clever driving and thinking by Mark

0:54:020:54:06

Webber. He can get anywhere near Michael, he gets the bonus of the

0:54:060:54:10

DRS. Indeed. That's exactly what Jenson Button should have done, if

0:54:100:54:17

we remember back in Melbourne. He passed Felipe Massa. A don't take

0:54:170:54:22

the risk, just give the place back and worry about it later. Michael

0:54:220:54:26

definitely got some good drive out of that corner. He's so brave,

0:54:260:54:30

running out onto that damp patch. Look at the gap that gives him on

0:54:300:54:36

the run down to turn 10. He's now shown his colours, Mark, and he

0:54:360:54:41

knows he can get down the outside. You can see the activation point,

0:54:410:54:51
0:54:510:54:53

in the slipstream. We saw Michael, was at last year? He misses the

0:54:530:55:00

corner again. Nearly lost it! Button sails past him. Somehow

0:55:000:55:06

finding enough grip. Mark Webber, pushing his luck. Yellow flags are

0:55:060:55:16
0:55:160:55:25

waving inter-necine 1. But he had nearly dropped it. Webber said,

0:55:250:55:32

I'll have some of that, thank you. Another replay of the same move.

0:55:320:55:36

Brave stuff from Jenson. He pulls the car overrun to the damp part of

0:55:360:55:41

the track. We saw what happened to Felipe Massa when he told that move.

0:55:410:55:45

Now Jenson is chasing down Michael Schumacher. He will get the

0:55:450:55:50

advantage of the DRS, rear wing. But not yet. Jenson is feeling

0:55:500:55:54

particularly punchy, by the looks of it. If he's within one second as

0:55:540:55:58

he exits his corner, he gets the advantage of the rear wing. It will

0:55:580:56:02

pop open as they go over his next line. Surely he's got a great

0:56:020:56:07

chance. He's coasting past. Schumacher is looking in his mirror.

0:56:070:56:11

Is he ahead of him? Yes, he is. Button was into second place. Now

0:56:110:56:16

he can use the wing again, where do you think it's right or not. And a

0:56:160:56:22

bit surprised by this double DRS, when you get a second bite. But he

0:56:220:56:27

didn't actually use it. Looked like a malfunction. We saw that on

0:56:270:56:34

Alonso in China, it popped up at a strange point. Now, with a new

0:56:340:56:39

fastest lap of the race, lapping 1.5 seconds faster than the leader,

0:56:390:56:45

Vettel, overtaking Michael Schumacher, albeit. Only three

0:56:450:56:49

seconds in front, this race is not over for the wind or the last point,

0:56:490:56:53

the last step on the podium. Michael Schumacher, he did all he

0:56:530:56:59

could, made his move daily. But that the difference in the speed,

0:56:590:57:05

when you have DRS in the slipstream. The they see their man slipped down

0:57:050:57:10

to third. Still in a podium position, but how much longer for?

0:57:100:57:16

Webber, Button is absolutely flying. He's 1.3 seconds quicker, halfway

0:57:160:57:20

round the current lap, as he starts homing in. Vettel is going to have

0:57:200:57:24

to show us what he's got. Vettel has a personal best first and

0:57:240:57:28

second sector. It's miles lower than that man, second-place Jenson

0:57:280:57:33

Button. He loves these conditions. Webber, with his real winger

0:57:330:57:38

available. Michael Schumacher, crossed the kerbs. I think he's

0:57:380:57:47

still got his hands for. Michael Schumacher, slippery track in

0:57:470:57:53

sector 11. Look at that. Button is 1.5 seconds quicker than Vettel on

0:57:530:57:57

at last lap alone. The gap is 1.6. He will be right on the back of him

0:57:570:58:00

at the end of this lap. A hopefully the camera will pick that up for us.

0:58:000:58:08

An interesting battle for third and fourth. What can Button do? He can

0:58:080:58:14

smell the victory. Is there enough time left? Four minutes available,

0:58:140:58:18

are we going to get all of the laps in? It will be so close between the

0:58:190:58:25

time of the two a time limit and it might just save Vettel, if we are

0:58:250:58:32

one lap short of the distance. A slippery track flag. They matched

0:58:320:58:36

each other in the middle sector. I don't think Button is close enough

0:58:360:58:46
0:58:460:58:52

Michael Schumacher defending hard against Mark Webber. And can he

0:58:520:58:58

keep it on the road this time? He does, indeed, Michael Schumacher

0:58:580:59:07

that in fourth place. Jenson Button, in new fastest lap of the race.

0:59:070:59:12

Just outside the one-second gap that will give him the Wind

0:59:120:59:20

activation. Three minutes to go -- and one minute to go and three laps.

0:59:200:59:26

Michael Schumacher without the back wing again. He does not have to

0:59:260:59:32

yield anything on that, he lost a place anyway. Sebastian Vettel has

0:59:320:59:37

just done his fastest of the race. He has responded to the McLaren,

0:59:370:59:45

are a beautiful drive. Another incident that will be looked at

0:59:450:59:49

after the race. A lot of drivers will be outside the steward's

0:59:490:59:57

office. And this is Kamui Kobayashi. Have we seen that? So much going

0:59:571:00:07
1:00:071:00:09

are now. The leader is Sebastian Vettel. We cannot win this race?

1:00:091:00:15

They move into lap 69, and they will just complete the distance.

1:00:151:00:20

The rain three macro is very wide in the last chicane at -- Michael

1:00:211:00:26

Schumacher. Almost into the wall of champions. Not for the first time,

1:00:261:00:35

but he survived. They will complete this lap. We will see the full 70

1:00:351:00:41

laps of the Grand Prix. And Sebastian Vettel has responded.

1:00:411:00:45

Identically verge -- identical virtually in the first sector time.

1:00:451:00:52

He a yellow flag down at the entry to the third chicane, at the exit

1:00:521:00:57

of turn nine. Something has gone wrong on the way into eight.

1:00:571:01:07

Contact with someone else? We will find out later. Does not look like

1:01:071:01:14

Jenson Button is within the one- second activation.. His a wind does

1:01:141:01:20

Open, so he is within a second -- his wink. In it will be on the last

1:01:201:01:29

lap, and it needs to be very tidy. A yellow flag. Overtaking in that

1:01:291:01:37

corner. Sebastian Vettel leads by 0.9 seconds. Jenson Button driving

1:01:371:01:41

for his life and for the victory. Has Sebastian Vettel got what it

1:01:411:01:51
1:01:511:01:52

takes? They are coming up in a pack of five, at remember at Monaco?

1:01:521:01:58

Look out for them at the front. And he has gone wide! Jenson Button

1:01:581:02:06

leads the Grand Prix! Felipe Massa turned in. The final lap of the

1:02:061:02:10

Grand Prix and Jenson Button, after a terrible afternoon with so many

1:02:101:02:16

things going wrong, Leeds this amazing Canadian Grand Prix! He set

1:02:161:02:21

the fastest first sector of the Grand Prix while he was doing it.

1:02:211:02:25

We see Sebastian Vettel finally cracking, he has made a mistake. He

1:02:251:02:30

was still finished second and has never been outside the two -- the

1:02:301:02:35

top two this year, but he finally shows he is human because of the

1:02:351:02:41

pressure put on him by this man. All sorts going on in the final

1:02:411:02:47

chicane. Jenson Button into the pit straight. He wins a brilliant race,

1:02:471:02:53

a sensational drive! What a victory, and Sebastian Vettel in second

1:02:531:02:59

place. He will be angry, it is not like him. Mark Webber will be the

1:02:591:03:06

second Red Bull of the podium, just ahead of Michael Schumacher. He,

1:03:061:03:12

sadly, does not get on the podium. And Felipe Massa and Kamui

1:03:121:03:19

Kobayashi still fighting the sixth place and seventh place. Is he

1:03:191:03:25

going to do it? He does, indeed. He got just in front of Kamui

1:03:251:03:35
1:03:351:03:38

Kobayashi. Felipe Massa in sixth place. Button wins, look how close

1:03:381:03:44

this is. And that is BRS working for you, and the computer says yes!

1:03:441:03:54
1:03:541:03:59

So does the picture. Good job in the Toro Rosso. Indeed, Jessica,

1:03:591:04:09
1:04:091:04:14

indeed! Look at this! Brilliant, absolutely brilliant! We finished

1:04:141:04:23

where it mattered, fantastic! A well done! That was a hell of a

1:04:231:04:33
1:04:331:04:35

race! That was a race! Thank you so much! Thank you, guys, so much! A

1:04:351:04:40

absolutely brilliant, great effort and great effort and overtaking and

1:04:401:04:46

great speed, just brilliant. surely the greatest Formula One

1:04:461:04:52

victory of Jenson Button's career - - surely. We were concerned that

1:04:521:04:59

Sebastian Vettel had gone into deep. He has done a great job holding it.

1:04:591:05:04

But per relentless pressure from Jenson Button. -- but there was

1:05:041:05:09

relentless pressure. A happy McLaren crew. They are happy to see

1:05:091:05:15

them man win. Do you remember on the final sector, it was the Paul

1:05:151:05:22

Nuttall -- it was the penultimate, we said it was 21st for Jenson

1:05:221:05:26

Button and he would not catch the pack, but he has won the race!

1:05:261:05:34

was still about 10 car lengths behind there HRTs at the back.

1:05:341:05:39

Fantastic driving. We had to wait a long time, but I am glad everybody

1:05:391:05:48

stayed with us, is stunning Grand Prix finish. Button and beats

1:05:481:05:58
1:05:581:05:59

Sebastian Vettel, are Mark Webber joining them on the podium. Two

1:05:591:06:09
1:06:091:06:10

Toro Rossos in the top 10. 14th and 14th place is important for those

1:06:101:06:20
1:06:201:06:27

small teams. They get a better Championship position. Jarno Trulli

1:06:271:06:37
1:06:371:06:38

is 17th, will he still qualify as a finisher? What a race. That is

1:06:381:06:44

Jenson Button's 10th Grand Prix victory. And surely his greatest!

1:06:441:06:50

That was fantastic. A lot of emotion and energy went into that.

1:06:501:06:53

The contact with his team-mate early in the race, the penalty that

1:06:531:06:59

followed, the frustration in the cockpit, and the moment came. Those

1:06:591:07:03

were the condition is a couple of years ago, his first victory for

1:07:031:07:07

McLaren came in changeable conditions. And he has shown

1:07:071:07:12

himself to be the master a game of keeping it into that very tight

1:07:121:07:19

line, a very well deserved victory. We have been talking for four hours

1:07:191:07:24

and nine minutes so far, David, we have another 20 minutes. We have

1:07:241:07:34

another investigation going on for Timo Glock. But joined the queue,

1:07:341:07:41

it will be a long one at the headmaster's door! It disappointed

1:07:411:07:46

looking Sebastian Vettel, are understandably. -- a very

1:07:461:07:56
1:07:561:07:58

disappointed looking. And Mark Webber, you driver of the day?

1:07:581:08:02

cannot look beyond the winner. I thought we were going to say

1:08:021:08:09

Michael Schumacher for comeback of the century. But that is the winner

1:08:091:08:15

walking down and he gets it round of applause from everybody. What a

1:08:151:08:20

fantastic ride, it looked as though it was all lost and then he is well

1:08:201:08:30
1:08:301:08:43

aware he carried the winner of the Drivers' Championship now. Michael

1:08:431:08:53
1:08:531:09:22

race he has not one of this year. He has been so close, second in

1:09:221:09:32
1:09:321:09:32

both. He will be disappointed. final sector car did it for

1:09:321:09:42
1:09:421:09:42

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 61 seconds

1:09:421:10:43

Sebastian Vettel, it closed the gap followed his son. And that is the

1:10:431:10:53
1:10:531:11:03

Minister of Transport, he hands And he is the Minister of Finance

1:11:031:11:09

and revenues. Sebastian Vettel, second place trophy, that is what

1:11:101:11:19

they look quite, is it?! - lookalike. That is the Mayor of

1:11:191:11:21

Montreal. A drive-through penalty has been given to Narain

1:11:211:11:31
1:11:311:11:51

Karthikeyan. And Mark Webber. And It is going to be a very, very

1:11:511:11:56

exciting evening for Jenson Button. He will celebrate, surely one of

1:11:561:12:01

the finest races of his life and the best Grand Prix of his

1:12:011:12:08

spectacular career. A well earned drink of the winner's champagne.

1:12:081:12:18
1:12:181:12:19

Sensational commitment and skill and precision and bravery

1:12:191:12:22

underbraking. Butter and beats the red ball-boys in the most

1:12:221:12:32
1:12:321:12:34

spectacular fashion -- Jenson Truly incredible. Talk about what

1:12:341:12:42

he races, the only thing that would be missing is the Penelope pit-stop

1:12:421:12:48

and Dick Dastardly. The greatest win of his career? Absolutely. You

1:12:481:12:52

could not script this. Truly amazing. In fact I was thinking,

1:12:521:12:56

and I really watching what I am watching? This is just the best

1:12:561:13:01

racing you can ever imagine. Now, I want to ask this man. Hounded this

1:13:011:13:05

is the about the investigation at this stage? First, congratulations.

1:13:051:13:10

At the moment we are celebrating a fantastic race, fantastic driving

1:13:101:13:17

by Jenson. What a race. Coming through is six times to come from

1:13:171:13:20

21st to win a race like that, incredible. He was driving so well

1:13:201:13:27

at the end. He deserved this win, everybody knows that and so does he.

1:13:271:13:32

Trust Eddie Jordan to try and burst the bubble already! Give us an idea

1:13:321:13:36

where that pace came from. He is a fantastic driver, the car was good

1:13:361:13:40

in those conditions. You've got to give it to Jenson. He went for it,

1:13:401:13:44

he attacked and attacked. What a fantastic drive and fantastic

1:13:441:13:47

result for him on the team. Fantastic day for us. We were

1:13:471:13:52

served up with a race from heaven. We thought, hang on, this raise

1:13:521:13:56

cannot possibly happen. And you go on and do what you did? I know, you

1:13:561:13:59

did quite a few things to contribute, but I think at the end

1:13:591:14:05

of the day, that was just fantastic. Very, very easy. We knew we had to

1:14:051:14:08

put pressure on Sebastian and he made a mistake. You can forgive him

1:14:081:14:12

for that. He's driven so well this year. But Jenson, I think, just

1:14:121:14:16

incredible. That's the stuff of champions, the stuff of dreams.

1:14:161:14:22

Fantastic. Let's have a look. Let slip with Jenson for the story of

1:14:221:14:23

slip with Jenson for the story of his Grand Prix. And what a Grand

1:14:231:14:27

Prix it was. How worried with you, early on, when these things were

1:14:271:14:32

going on? You don't want drive and drive it to be together? Tried and

1:14:321:14:36

driver is bad news. That's one of the lows. That was the low point of

1:14:361:14:40

the race. Fortunately, the two guys have spoken, they have plenty of

1:14:401:14:44

opportunity to talk to each other. Jenson didn't know that Lewis was

1:14:441:14:48

there. That's not created an issue between drivers. But you don't want

1:14:481:14:58
1:14:581:15:04

your drivers having a go at take going back to the start, you made

1:15:041:15:10

the point about the safety car. I used stilts sure -- are you still

1:15:101:15:14

sure about your answer? You thought it shouldn't have started with the

1:15:141:15:21

safety car? I thought not, I'm partisan, I wanted an exciting

1:15:211:15:24

start to the race and we could have done that without the safety car.

1:15:241:15:27

None the less, it was damn difficult for the drivers all

1:15:271:15:34

afternoon. When the safety car came in, we did get exciting racing.

1:15:341:15:38

This is the investigation, are you at all worried, having seen

1:15:381:15:44

replays? I think Jenson was on the inside. I think Alonso shut on him.

1:15:441:15:48

Again, I'm likely to be a little bit partisan. I think the stewards

1:15:481:15:52

will make their call. I hope and believe we will be OK. At this

1:15:521:15:56

point, when Jenson is coming up to third place, taking Mark Webber,

1:15:561:16:02

did you think, hang on, we could pick up a race win? He was so quick

1:16:021:16:06

in catching them that we thought he could win the race. We told him

1:16:061:16:09

that, but we never imagined he could push through like that. I

1:16:091:16:13

think it was clear that Sue De Bakker was struggling, for whatever

1:16:131:16:21

reason. They wear out-braking from 1 million miles back. Or you can do

1:16:211:16:26

is put massive pressure on and hope something comes off. This is

1:16:261:16:29

precisely the time when Jenson's Engineer tells him he can win this

1:16:291:16:34

race? Exactly. We were giving him the encouragement. We were saying,

1:16:341:16:42

loch, you are -- luck, your Tim seconds faster than Vettel. You've

1:16:421:16:45

got to give them information, but the driver has to do the job. He

1:16:451:16:51

really did the job. The last time we spoke to you after a win, it was

1:16:511:16:55

when Lewis won in China. You were shaking with excitement. How does

1:16:551:17:01

this compare? This is fantastic. I'm so pleased for Jenson. That was

1:17:011:17:06

a mighty drive. Sebastian has been driving so well, that he forced an

1:17:061:17:10

in Tonnerre. He knew he would have trouble. We were in the DRS own, we

1:17:101:17:16

caught him. You could see before that incident when you thought he

1:17:161:17:20

was on the ragged edge. I could see it, I'm sure Jenson could see it.

1:17:211:17:24

How nice to see their Rhys joining in with the celebrations,

1:17:241:17:28

considering the race that he had? He will be disappointed, but he

1:17:281:17:33

loves his team, he has a fantastic relationship with Jenson. He knows

1:17:331:17:38

that Jenson will enjoy this win, so will we. I'm sure there is a party

1:17:381:17:43

and you've got an invite. Congratulations, an epic race. The

1:17:431:17:46

crowd alongside has enjoyed that as well. Let's hear from the man of

1:17:461:17:56
1:17:561:17:58

the moment, the man who would won The top three winners. Jenson

1:17:581:18:02

Button, his 10th career victory. Second, Sebastian Vettel, Red Bull

1:18:021:18:07

Racing. Third, Mark Webber, Red Bull Racing. Amazing Grace, well

1:18:071:18:12

worth waiting for the finish. He went from last to first, you

1:18:121:18:17

collided with your team-mate, but what a race? I really don't know

1:18:171:18:21

what to say. A very emotional three hours, however long it has been

1:18:211:18:28

since the start. The incident was the one with Lewis, I couldn't see

1:18:281:18:31

anything in my mirrors. It's one of those things. I have apologised to

1:18:311:18:36

him. Then it was really a fight. Got to drive through, from speeding

1:18:361:18:39

behind the safety car. I had to fight my way through about three

1:18:391:18:45

times. Eventually, on the last lap, I was chasing down Sebastian. He

1:18:461:18:49

went a little bit wide onto the white part of the circuit. I was

1:18:491:18:54

able to take the opportunity. For me, yes, a fantastic race. Even if

1:18:541:18:58

I hadn't won, I think I would have enjoyed this race immensely.

1:18:581:19:02

Amazing win, possibly my best. Sebastian, another high pressure

1:19:021:19:06

finish. This time it didn't go your way. How disappointed are you

1:19:061:19:11

feeling? Of course, disappointed. I think it was a very difficult race

1:19:111:19:17

from start to finish. We led every single lap apart from part of the

1:19:171:19:21

last one. Yes, you know, I think I was probably too conservative when

1:19:211:19:25

I was in the lead after the last safety car. I didn't open the gap

1:19:251:19:30

enough. I was trying to hold the gap to the cars behind. I saw

1:19:311:19:34

Jenson coming through, I was pushing. I think it would have been

1:19:341:19:38

enough to the end. But obviously it was not because I did a mistake. It

1:19:381:19:43

is clearly down to me, I looked up the rear a little bit, you have to

1:19:431:19:47

open the car, going a bit straighter. When there is only one

1:19:471:19:52

line, I ended up in a wet. Then it was quite easy for him to pass. It

1:19:521:19:56

was a good day today, difficult race, easy to do mistakes. We'd

1:19:561:20:02

seen a lot of cars not finishing. Its good points. At the moment,

1:20:021:20:07

sure, if you've got it in your hands, then you give it away, it's

1:20:071:20:13

not the sweetest feeling. But, all in all, it was a good race for us.

1:20:131:20:16

Mark, you were the first to go on to the slick tyres. Unbelievable

1:20:161:20:22

battle at the end with Michael Schumacher and Jenson? Yes, it was

1:20:221:20:25

very hard to clear some of those guys in the try-line, when you're

1:20:251:20:29

trying to come through. There is such a narrow window to get on the

1:20:291:20:34

inside of people. Experienced guys like Michael, Heidfeld, those guys

1:20:341:20:40

know what they're doing. I rolled the dice, I was happy to see not

1:20:401:20:44

everybody taking the next lap after me, the two laps was enough to

1:20:441:20:48

bring it back into the game for the podium. It was a pretty good fight

1:20:481:20:54

with Michael. Again, it was difficult. We both wanted the same

1:20:541:20:58

bit of track, for the main point, breaking for the chicane. In the

1:20:581:21:04

end, we got there. When Jenson arrived, he was absolutely flying.

1:21:041:21:07

We were all trying to be as bare as we could. I passed Michael through

1:21:071:21:17
1:21:171:21:18

the chicane, I had to get position back. In the end, a great race,

1:21:181:21:22

Sebastien did a phenomenal job, it's easy to make a mistake in

1:21:221:21:25

these positions. Back in third is probably the best I could have got

1:21:251:21:29

today. Let's confirm the result of this

1:21:291:21:35

race. These are the top 10 finishers. Congratulations to

1:21:351:21:45
1:21:451:21:47

was going to get the first podium of his return. He finishes in

1:21:471:21:52

fourth place. Strong points for the likes of petrol and Massa.

1:21:521:21:58

Kobayashi was sitting second on the restart. They will all be pleased

1:21:581:22:03

to pick up some points. It doesn't change the man at the front, but

1:22:031:22:08

his nearest challenger is now Jenson Button. Lewis Hamilton was

1:22:081:22:12

the closest, he drops down to fourth. Another strong result for

1:22:121:22:17

Red Bull. They are 255 points, ahead of McLaren. David Coulthard

1:22:171:22:20

has joined us from the commentary box. He arrived and said, thank

1:22:201:22:24

goodness for a race like that after all of the waiting around. I did

1:22:241:22:31

the same applies to our loyal BBC viewers. It's almost 10:30pm. These

1:22:311:22:35

late night F1 Movie nights are good for them, I'm sure. Well done to

1:22:351:22:39

them for sticking with us. We were starting to despair, finding things

1:22:391:22:42

to talk about when the rain kept falling. What an incredible result.

1:22:421:22:46

I was imagining what it was like to be in the car, when you are having

1:22:461:22:50

to drive at those speeds with no room for error. If you run wide,

1:22:501:22:56

you go in the wet and it takes you wide. In the end, Sebastian Vettel

1:22:561:23:00

showed he was human, he succumbed to the pressure of Jenson Button.

1:23:001:23:05

No one would disagree that was a well deserved victory. Stand-out

1:23:051:23:10

moment, just Jenson's driving in those conditions? The pace of

1:23:101:23:14

Jenson. So much quicker than anyone else. Where did he find that from?

1:23:141:23:18

Where did he get the confidence to run that Wall of Death ride out to

1:23:181:23:25

the edge of the damp conditions? We saw it in Melbourne, that needs

1:23:251:23:29

full analysis that we don't have time to do today. We can hear from

1:23:291:23:32

Michael Schumacher after a strong result from him.

1:23:321:23:35

So close, you must have been able to smell the champagne towards the

1:23:351:23:40

end of the race. How are you feeling? Naturally, and not yet

1:23:401:23:48

sure whether I should be excited or be an happy. -- B unhappy. For the

1:23:481:23:53

team, a great result. It's the best result we have had this year.

1:23:531:23:57

really pleased for the three guys on the podium, but that would have

1:23:571:23:59

completed the fairy tale, if Michael Schumacher had prevailed

1:23:591:24:03

through the madness to pick up a podium? Absolutely. We sat through

1:24:031:24:11

that race and Michael Schumacher, I think most people found a little

1:24:111:24:15

bit of graciousness there, just to say, wouldn't it be nice to see him

1:24:151:24:24

on the podium? You can see the highlights on BBC Three later on

1:24:241:24:30

this evening. In many ways, you don't have to wait too long. 1.10

1:24:301:24:34

in the morning. I'm sure you can stick around and watch a little bit

1:24:341:24:37

more Formula One, who cares if you are a little bit late for work in

1:24:371:24:41

the morning? Equally bad weather in the United Kingdom, the final of

1:24:411:24:48

Queens will happen tomorrow, live at 2:30pm on BBC Two. But tickets

1:24:481:24:52

will be available on the gate, a cheap way to see some top tennis

1:24:521:24:57

after some top racing today. Our next race is in Valencia. There is

1:24:581:25:01

no Formula One Forum this week. But then again we have done the last 5

1:25:011:25:04

and a half hours on the television. Did a deal with the safety cars in

1:25:041:25:12

the right way? Well, a lot of cars are still on track. There is no

1:25:121:25:18

room for any error on the track. We are getting up close and personal.

1:25:181:25:28
1:25:281:25:31

I think it's better to make that decision ahead of an accident.

1:25:311:25:35

Altar had a day to forget? Red Bull had a good day at the office again.

1:25:351:25:40

If they are going to drop away from not winning a race with Vettel,

1:25:401:25:44

this is how to do it, finish in second place. The man is human. So

1:25:441:25:48

excited, a brilliant race. For me, Formula One was the winner today.

1:25:481:25:53

This was a remarkable race. We'll talk about it for some time. Sadly

1:25:531:25:56

we've got no more time to talk about it. David, congratulations to

1:25:561:26:00

you and Martin for getting through that epic. Thanks for being with us.

1:26:001:26:05

The person I feel most sorry for is the safety car driver. He led all

1:26:051:26:09

those laps and still didn't win the race. Mind you, after a performance

1:26:091:26:13

like that, who would begrudge Jenson Button picking up his first

1:26:131:26:19

win of 2011? What an evening, thanks for sticking with it. Webber

1:26:191:26:29
1:26:291:26:41

undrivable. It's a red flag situation. We are back in raising

1:26:411:26:45

Jake Humphrey presents live coverage of Formula 1's Canadian Grand Prix. Great Britain's Lewis Hamilton was the master of Montreal in last year's race, winning a thrilling race-long five-car battle. Hamilton took the chequered flag ahead of his McLaren team-mate Jenson Button, with Fernando Alonso not far behind in third.

The Red Bull pair of Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber were down in fourth and fifth, but this year Vettel has been the man to beat following his stunning start to the season. The current world champion, though, has yet to taste victory on a track where his German compatriot Michael Schumacher won a record seven times.
