Willy Rampf was more than happy with the one-two in Montreal. The Technical Director of the BMW Sauber F1 Team is proud of the performances of Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld during last weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.
Fate smiled on the team from Munich and Hinwil on the 19th lap of the "Circuit Gilles Villeneuve": McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton failed to spot the red light at the exit from the pit lane, and drove straight into the back of Kimi Räikkönen's stationary Ferrari. As a result, two of the toughest rivals in the battle for victory were forced to quit the race.
"We benefited from the incident at the end of the pit lane, but that is just one part of the game", says Rampf. "Everything must run perfectly if you want to win, and that is exactly what happened with us today. Other teams were less fortunate."
Although Robert's victory in Montreal has put him at the top of the Drivers' World Championship, the German still feels that it is too early to speculate about who may or may not win the title. "To think about winning the World Championship is nice, but much too early", says Rampf. "We are proud of what we have achieved on the way to our first victory - and that it was a one-two is even better. That is the stuff of dreams."Source BMW Sauber
