Zulu’s F1 team shifts gears

One man following the Formula One championship more intently than anyone in Cayman is Andreas ‘Zulu’ Kettner.

Zulu is the sole Red Bull rep on the island and he got really excited as Red Bull finished 1-2 at the German Grand Prix for the third time on Sunday.

The momentum in Formula One’s championship fight has shifted significantly.

Mark Webber picked up victory No.1, edging teammate Sebastian Vettel for Red Bull to close in on Brawn GP in both championships.

Brawn GP driver Jenson Button’s lead over Vettel is down from 32 points to 21 with 80 points still available. Webber is 22.5 back from Button. Brawn GP’s constructors’ lead is down to 19.5 points.

Button won six of the first seven races but has since been shut out as Brawn GP failed to reach the podium for the first time this season.

‘It was a very exciting race,’ said Zulu. ‘Webber was trailing at the start after his drive-through penalty but he clawed his way through the field and grabbed victory.’

Zulu is also the main sponsor of the Cayman flag football league and also referees games.
