Soggy Silverstone

The British Grand Prix was hit by awful weather but the fans didn't let the rain dampen their spirits.

    This year's British Grand Prix was yet another major event which fell foul to the dreadful summer weather.

    The Isle of Wight Music Festival and the Queen's Golden Jubillee were just two of many event which were dogged by bad weather and Silverstone suffered the same fate.

    Although there were significant interruptions to practice on Friday and Saturday, Sunday's race saw Mark Webber's Red Bull overtake Ferrarri's Fernando Alonso to claim his ninth career victory.

    Whilst Webber rightly received the plaudits, the race fans also deserve praise for withstanding some of the worst summer weather that anyone can remember.
