From the archive: David Coulthard on driving Silverstone.
There is no faster sequence any place in the globe than the run by way of Copse, Maggotts and Becketts. You have to have the little bit involving your tooth in buy to get hooked up and drive swiftly. It all commences at the extremely very first corner of the lap and it pays to observe the cars and trucks likely by way of Copse and appreciate their speed. Even for me as a driver, when I consider a instant to observe, I believe, ‘Fuck, that is impressive.’ There are not several corners like Copse in the globe. And Silverstone has 4.
You approach Copse at 180mph in seventh gear. The only purpose you arrive off the electric power is to get the deceleration required to take sixth. The corner alone would be seventh gear, but the reduction of speed by way of the actual cornering forces implies you would be too small on revs on exit if you stayed in seventh. Which is one of the issues for the driver.
