Silverstone es una pista rápida, pero también muy compleja y con una superficie muy abrasiva.

En el año 2010 se modificó el trazado, ampliándose en casi 800m., siendo nueva toda la zona interior comprendida entre las curvas 11 y 16. Con sus 5,9 kilometros, se convierte en la tercera pista más larga del calendario, y con la nueva configuración, se convierte en una de las pistas más rápidas del año.

Presenta una serie de curvas muy rápidas, especialmente las de Becketts, Maggotts, Chapel y Hangar Straigt. Se trata de unas zonas donde el piloto debe escoger muy bien el sitio para trazar la línea correcta y poder lograr buenos tiempos. Este es el sector más importante del circuito, donde el coche requiere una mayor carga aerodinámica y hacia el que va dirigida la puesta a punto.

Las altas velocidades y altas fuerzas laterales causadas por el trazado del circuito, junto a lo abrasivo de la superficie de la pista, significa que será una dura prueba para los neumáticos Pirelli. La pista ya era anteriormente una de las más duras para los neumáticos, y este nuevo trazado la convierte en aún más dura para las ruedas.La nueva recta significa que la velocidad media será aún mayor que con el anterior y tradicional trazado.Entrando en la nueva sección, la nueva curva a derechas en Abbey, sin duda genera altas fuerzas laterales.

Los cálculos sugieren que la velocidad media se mantendrá relativamente estable, y de hecho, el circuito, aún siendo rápido, es un poco menos "circuito de motor" de lo que solía ser. La potencia del motor será algo menos importante, debido a los tramos rápidos, pero sobre todo a las curvas de alta velocidad que caracterizan a este circuito.

Silverstone no puede considerarse un circuito duro para los motores puesto que los coches tan solo aceleran al máximo el 60% del tiempo de carrera. Pero dadas las características especiales de este circuito, el coche no puede presentar debilidad alguna en ningún aspecto. Y es que Silverstone además tiene un tiempo de lo más voluble, y fácilmente mojado.

También es el circuito más cercano a las casas de los equipos Racing Point, Renault, McLaren, Mercedes, Red Bull y Williams, por lo que muchos corren "en casa".

@RacingPointF1

Following the announcement that@SChecoPerez (https://twitter.com/SChecoPerez) has tested positive for COVID-19 at the Silverstone Circuit ahead of the Formula 1 Pirelli British Grand Prix, the team regrets to announce that he will be unable to participate in this weekend’s race.

Sergio is physically well and in good spirits, but he will continue to self-isolate under the guidelines of the relevant public health authorities, with safety the ultimate priority for the team and the sport.

The entire team wishes Sergio well and looks forward to welcoming him back into the cockpit of the RP20 soon. Our intention is to race two cars on Sunday. We will communicate the next steps for our British Grand Prix weekend in due course.

Racing Point no tiene un tercer piloto designado para reemplazar a alguno de sus competidores en la temporada. En su lugar comparte los reservas de Mercedes; Esteban Gutiérrez y Stoffel Vandoorne.

Vandoorne no está en Silverstone este fin de semana dado que se prepara para el reinicio de la Fórmula E en Berlín, mientras que Gutiérrez no ha participado en un gran premio desde el final de la temporada 2016.

Motorsport.com entiende que Nico Hulkenberg es ahora el favorito para tomar el lugar de Pérez al lado de Lance Stroll. Hulkenberg estuvo cinco años dentro del equipo de Silverstone cuando el nombre de la escudería era Force India, compitiendo con ellos en 2012 y 2014-2016.

La última vez que el piloto alemán estuvo en la F1 fue en el final de la temporada 2019 en Abu Dhabi cuando tuvo su última aparición con Renault.

British GP: Preview - Ferrari
Sunday's race will be the 71st British Grand Prix. This and the Italian GP are the only two races to have featured every year on the World Championship calendar. In fact, if Formula 1 can be considered to have a home, it's probably Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). This historic venue sprung up from an RAF airfield, using the perimeter roads and on 13 May 1950, it hosted the first ever Formula 1 Grand Prix and it was also here, one year later, that Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) took its first win in the category, courtesy of the Argentine Jose Froilan Gonzalez in a 375 F1.



Over the years, the British Grand Prix has been run at three different venues. This year, Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) hosts the race for the 54th time, while it was run at Aintree five times and at the swoopy Brands Hatch track on 12 occasions. Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) has won in England 17 times, also taking 15 pole positions and a total of 57 podium finishes.


Up until 1990, it was very high speed and since then it has undergone several layout changes. For 1991, a much slower track was devised, removing some of its best loved corners. Then in, 2010, the track was lengthened by 750 metres and the following year, the start-finish line was moved from the straight between Woodcote and Copse to the one between Club and Abbey. The current Formula 1 cars generate a lateral force of 5g at Copse, which is taken flat and also in the legendary Maggots and Becketts sequence where the very quick changes of direction present the cars with a stern test, as they need to maintain momentum to have as much speed as possible down the Hangar Straight.


Laurent Mekies Sporting Director: "Going back to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is always a special feeling even though this year we won't see the very enthusiastic British fans in the grandstands. I am sure that we will somehow feel their presence.


"It's the first high speed track of the season and it is vital that we use the two races we have here to improve our understanding of the car. We know that from a pure competitiveness point of view it will be difficult, but we need to focus on acquiring the best information possible so that we can develop our car in the right direction.


"The race team had a few days back at base to regroup after the first triple header, and we are all returning to the track with the strong will to deliver the best possible result this weekend. It is certainly a character building start to the season but we know that we can count on our team, our drivers, and our fans, to fight back as a united group. There is no magic formula to turn things around quickly and there's a lot of hard work ahead of us, which is what we are here for.


"Finally, it is good to see the calendar taking shape with 3 more races being confirmed, on circuits with very different characteristics which should represent a good challenge for the teams and a great show for the fans."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I really look forward to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) because the track is amazing. I think we all love it. The circuit used to be an airfield so the area around it is very exposed and so the wind can play a very important role, as it can seriously affect the car's handling one way or another. It can make it very difficult to drive or it can help the driver even more in getting what he wants from it.


"The weather and the temperatures are usually unpredictable and that's another reason why it's not easy to find the right balance with the car. We'll see how our car behaves on this type of circuit which again is different to those in Austria and Hungary, with a lot of high speed corners."


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "Heading to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) for the next race, two specific traits come to mind when thinking about the circuit. The track is very fast, with the Maggots-Becketts part being particularly impressive to drive through. It also tends to be quite cold there and changeable weather conditions means it is a challenge to predict how the race weekend will turn out.


"It will also be our second pair of back-to-back races held at the same circuit this season and the work completed during the first weekend is a good foundation to build on for the second event. We will have to learn as much as we can in the opening days and keep our heads down to make sure we make good progress."

British GP: Preview - Red Bull


We are three races into the season and Hungary proved eventful. What are your thoughts looking back?

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): It's good that the team got to have a week off at home with their families after the triple header, especially after that little bit of extra stress before the race in Hungary! I've watched the video back of the mechanics working on my car on the grid and it was crazy what they achieved but it was cool to see that they all knew exactly how to operate and what to do, even in such an unexpected situation. Without them I would not have even started the race.


The next triple header kicks off with two races at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). What do you think of the track?

MV: I'm looking forward to the next triple header and Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is a really nice track to drive. The corners at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) are insanely fast and Copse is flat out! Maggots is also flat out in seventh gear which is already crazy, especially in qualifying as you don't even tap the brake anymore, you just downshift. At Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) you have to get the right wing level, and of course for the lower speed corners you prefer more downforce and grip. Obviously it can rain at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), even though it is summer in the UK (laughs) but I like those conditions and maybe we wouldn't mind the rain as it could mix things up.


The season is now well underway after three back to back races. How are you feeling now you're back home?

Alex Albon: I feel pretty good! Obviously as a team it hasn't been an ideal start to the season but aside from the DNF, we've been able to score some good points. I think with that being said, the car can only improve so I'm feeling positive. We know the areas we need to work on and with Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) being a home race close to the factory, that's good news. I think we can hopefully get a good result there, historically it's been a pretty good track for the team, and it's one I really enjoy driving.


You had an impressive race in Hungary. It must've been a lot of fun overtaking your way through the field?

AA: Hungary was a lot of fun but obviously we don't want to start that far back again. I think we have a very good race car, so once we get on top of our Saturday qualifying trim, we should be in good stead for the Sunday races. Hungary was a fun race, it's not the easiest track to overtake at so to pull off the passing moves and get so far up the grid was pretty satisfying.


Christian Horner: When Max crashed into the barriers on the way to the grid at the Hungaroring (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/6/budapest), we were unsure if he would even take part in the race. But a superhuman effort from the team to repair his RB16 in record time meant he was able to not only race but also finish second on the podium.


I was watching the out lap on the monitor and saw Max run wide at turn six/seven. He was pushing to find out where the grip was and trying to synchronise eighth gear on the run down to turn 12, which means you have to be flat-out to get that synchronisation. The circuit was more slippery than he thought, and the tyres were pretty cold, nobody could quite believe their eyes when he went off into the barrier.


Luckily, he managed to keep the engine running and reverse out of the barrier. We were unsure how serious the damage was and had to decide quickly whether to call him into the pit lane, but we made the call to send him to the grid to see if we could get the job done so he wouldn't lose his grid position. As the mechanics greeted Max's RB16 at the back of the grid and pushed him through the rest of the field we had no idea whether we would get the work done in time.


We'd identified on the screens that the track rod and push rod had broken but it was an unknown whether the wishbone or upright had broken on his suspension. If it was, that would have been game over.


The funny thing is, I wasn't stressed about it. I felt that if anyone could do the repairs then our mechanics could. As soon as he got to the grid, they tore in to it but most importantly the non-destructive test inspection needed to happen on the components to make sure it was safe.


Those results came out fine and then it was a race against the clock to get those parts changed, which is a massive undertaking because they are pretty complicated in design.


You'd need to be a sensational piano player to be able to work your fingers within the space they had, such is the tight design of these cars.


Everyone did their bit - the frontend boys, the No.1 mechanic, the chief mechanic - it was seamless. Of course, everything else also needs to happen on the car as normal, to prepare for the start of the race, so it was very well co-ordinated.


Around five minutes from the cut-off point, the chief mechanic gave me a wink to say it was looking alright and the wheels went on with about 25 seconds to go.


Other teams' mechanics clapped our guys off the grid. It was the absolute epitome of teamwork, all the guys working together in synchronisation against the clock and getting the job done. TAG Heuer would be proud of that Don't Crack Under Pressure moment that's for sure!


They were properly buzzed in the garage and then, of course, they had to calm themselves down because it is the same mechanics doing the pit stops and they smashed in a sub two second pit stop as well - the quickest during the race - for the third race in a row. It was a phenomenal team performance.


On race days this year, Alex has been fantastic. In Austria, he nearly won the first race and he drove a great race and recovery drive last Sunday in Hungary. We just have to give him a car that is more consistent on a Saturday and his results will improve.


Hungary is normally a track where we have been strong, but last Friday we were a little bit at sea. The mechanics broke the curfew making changes but still the car was not performing as it should and the drivers were struggling with the unpredictable characteristics. The changing weather conditions also reduced the opportunity for a like for like comparison between sessions which really hampered our progress.


So, after qualifying we were well out of position in seventh and 13th on the grid and if I'm honest it was a pretty depressing evening. It felt like one those weekends where nothing was going our way despite everyone working their arses off. One thing you can be sure of about our team is that we never give up and we all have a massive amount of fight in us.


We went into Sunday with a renewed energy and you can only imagine the feeling when we saw Max hit the wall. But once we got over the out-lap incident, the drivers did a great job in the race and the car performed better than expected. Max put the incident out of his mind, that was a real sign of maturity from him and Alex put his head down and fought his way past some of the most experienced drivers on the grid.


We know Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) have a very strong package and the Racing Points have a very quick car also. So for us to beat the Racing Points, with Alex ahead of Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) and being able to split the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) was a great salvage when we were staring down the barrel of a very difficult weekend.


With the British Grand Prix up next, I was remembering back to 1991 and one of my earliest F1 memories. I had not long had a driving licence and had an imitation Porsche that was really a Beetle, with a Porsche spoiler on the back and exhausts out of the side.


Back then, Goodyear were the tyre suppliers and they used to do two days of testing at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) around a month before the British GP. I had been to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) previously to see Johnny Herbert in a Formula 3 car, I'd also seen Eddie Irvine in Formula Ford, but this was the first time I saw an F1 car driving around the circuit.


So I sneaked a day off school and instead of driving there, I drove to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). I managed to find a hole in the fence and made it in to the pit lane. Having got in there, I definitely wasn't going to leave.


I managed to get in front of the Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) garage, who had developed a phenomenally quick car that Nigel Mansell was testing - which would have been one of Adrian's cars.


I met Nigel and he was very generous with his time. I then went to the back of the pits and I bumped into Ayrton Senna. We stood face-to-face and he saw the jacket I was wearing, which was from one of the karting teams that I drove for. He recognised the kart manufacturer and started asking me about karting.


So not only had I seen Nigel, who was my boyhood hero, I also met this other icon in Senna. So driving home in my Volkswagen Beetle, I was over the moon. It did not help my A Levels, but I had a great day!

British GP: Preview - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "It's great to be heading back to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) for not one but two home races as we start the next triple-header. We've had the chance to reset and reflect on what we've learnt from our first three races of the season. I can't wait to go racing again and want to ensure we maintain our progress going into the British Grand Prix. The track itself offers fast and exciting racing with great opportunities to overtake. We know the competition will be tough, but we've got to focus on ourselves, work hard and build on our promising start to the season.



"My home race as an F1 driver is a very special occasion just like it was the first time around last year. Obviously, it's going to be disappointing not to have the fans there, but for everyone's safety the best experience is to watch it from home. This weekend I'll be running a very special helmet, following the competition I ran to design my home grand prix lid. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the reveal this week."


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "We head to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) for our next set of races and the home races for the team! After some sweet and sour moments during an intense first triple-header, we've had some extra time to review the first weekends and draw our conclusions more calmly. We've analysed our strengths and weaknesses, and I can't wait to drive this car on a third circuit with different challenges. Despite leaving some points on the table, overall it's been a positive start to the season, finishing all three races in the top 10 and being consistent on track. Everyone in the team is pushing flat-out and we need to keep up the good work. I'm feeling recharged, prepared and ready to go again for another triple-header.


"Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is one of my favourite tracks due to the quick pace of the circuit and the numerous chances to overtake. I had a great race at the British Grand Prix last season, finishing P6 with plenty of overtakes on track and intensively defending my position during the last few laps! Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) always offers exciting moments and we're going to miss the immense support of the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) fans very much there. Even if they aren't at the track, they can be sure we're going to give our best to secure a good result and make them proud. Let's go!"


James Key, Technical Director: "It's been an exciting opening to the season that's been closely fought between the teams around us. As it's a compressed season, the pressure is on to make the most of every race weekend.


"We have come away from the first triple-header recognising similar strengths and weaknesses in the car from those we saw back at testing in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). This is good because it allows us to keep our priorities for development consistent with what we had previously planned.


"The British Grand Prix will see a continued evolution of the MCL35 with some developments that will be tested over the coming race weekend. We've got a unique challenge in balancing upgrades for this year while ensuring our 2021 car is moving ahead in parallel, as the only team to be changing engine partners between 2020 and 2021, our design work and planning for next year is more critical than for others.


"Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) will be the first high-speed circuit this season and offers a mix of different corner types that give will another useful data point for our car. It is a fantastic circuit and the flowing nature of the high-speed corners, combined with long, technical low-speed turns and the need for good efficiency will be a new challenge compared to Austria and Hungary.


"Looking ahead to the second grand prix at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and to Spain, we'll have further test items to add to the car to provide new insight into potential development opportunities for the future.


"It's quite an intensive period at the moment and there has been some great work, by the design and production teams in particular, to push all these items through in a relatively short space of time after coming back from the shutdown and furlough periods. Thanks as always to our colleagues at Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) and our trackside team for enabling us to collect data and maximise our on-track performance."

British GP: Preview - RenaultDaniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) showed promising pace from the first three races of the season with two eighth place finishes to show for it. Now it's time for Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) where the Australian made his Formula 1 debut in 2011, as he aims to give it his all.



What do you enjoy most about racing at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone)?

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): I love racing at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). It's a special one for me especially as it's where I first raced a Formula 1 car back in 2011. That feels quite long ago now, but I do remember it well. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is a great track, it's quite epic at full whack with a nice flow to it. It's high-speed throughout and you have to be quite brave in a few places and get the car to stick. We all love Maggots and Becketts, they are amongst the best corners of the entire season and that's a lot of fun.


How confident are you heading into this race?

DR: We do have a couple of updates ahead of Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). I think it's pretty evident we've made a good step with the car this year, but so have other teams, and we have to keep progressing and developing in order to achieve better results. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is one of those tracks which is flowing with mainly medium to high-speed corners. I'm looking forward to testing out some of these new upgrades and hopefully finding a bit more performance.


What would you say about the first three races?

DR: We have had eighth every race. It's not too bad, but we know we've had more speed than just the 12 points to show for in all three of the races. We had a couple of reliability issues, which I think we're on top of now and a couple of qualifying sessions where we've just lacked a tenth here or there. For these next few races, we have to target better points and I think that's certainly achievable. It's very close between a handful of teams and we are not far from one of those top five, top six finishes. It's coming, let's go!


It's been an eventful opening to the season for Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) with plenty of pace and potential on offer. The Frenchman is targeting a better haul of points from the next batch of races, beginning in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) this weekend.


What stands out at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone)?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is a really fun circuit to drive. In a Formula 1 car, any fast sequence of corners are a fantastic experience and, at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), you get that throughout. We all talk about Maggots and Becketts, but they are so much fun to drive in a modern car. They are just awesome. It's a challenging lap, but a track where a lot of it is down to the driver. It's about nailing every corner and carrying momentum through the whole lap. There are a few overtaking spots there, so I'm sure there will be some great racing and we'll be aiming to be fighting for those points places.


I have some nice memories from racing Formula 3 in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). I was on pole, got three podiums and won a race there in 2014 and then I also took a podium in GP3. Another thing to consider at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is the weather! We've had some interesting weather so far this season and Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) won't be any different. Rain or dry, I'm sure we'll be ready for the challenge.


How would you evaluate the first three races?

EO: We have a clear area that we need to work on. We learnt a lot from the first races of the season. We know we have improved a lot, but we also know there are more things to keep on top of and get better. The potential is there, it's just about extracting those little details and maximising everything. I want to pick up more points from these next races and I'm sure we can do it. We have a couple of new upgrades to try out, so we'll see what they bring and aim to get the most from our package.


It's been a mixed start to the season for the team as it prepares for the British Grand Prix. Chassis Technical Director Pat Fry outlines the challenges of Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and explains the various upgrades to the Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) R.S.20 for this weekend.


What are the main challenges of Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone)?

Pat Fry: Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is a mixture of medium and high-speed corners. The old part of the circuit is fantastic, especially the run through Maggots, Becketts and Chapel. It's a great circuit for highlighting potential car performance problems and identifying what works well and what doesn't. You need a good level of efficiency in the car and it's also quite a power sensitive circuit. The last race in Hungary was at the extreme maximum downforce. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), however, is more about having an efficient car that works well in the high-speed corners. In the past, our car hasn't been suited to this sort of track but, this year, the signs are there that we're heading in the right direction.


What upgrades is the team planning to bring to the Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) R.S.20?

PF: We are bringing a number of updates to the car this weekend as well as running a different downforce level. It's a reasonable update and it will be interesting to see how it performs here at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). I wouldn't say it's enough to shake up the order but it's a good upgrade at this stage of the season. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is a good circuit to test these things, it has enough straights for measuring the aero performance as well as a great mixture of corners so we can really gauge the effect on the cars handling. One thing to consider is the wind, it can be very windy there and it will be good to see how we have improved in these conditions since testing in Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona). If it's dry, we'll have an idea of what's going on.


How would you assess the team's performance so far this year?

PF: The results we've had so far, are probably where we deserve to be at the moment. It's been good to see we've improved the car and we're amongst the teams to have made the most progress from last year. There's obviously a lot of work to do and we have to keep developing. Reliability has been disappointing and it's frustrating to have those problems. We're working hard on this and we need to improve all of our processes from quality assurance through manufacturing and the build phase all the way to the implemented on the car.

British GP: Preview - Racing PointSilverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) provides one of the highest average speeds of any circuit on the Formula 1 calendar, thanks to its long straights and sequences of quickfire, high-speed corners. A well-balanced car able to handle quick changes of direction is key to success here.



The track was resurfaced in 2019, removing one aspect of this particular challenge - but the circuit remains almost unmatched in the amount of energy it exerts on the Pirelli tyres [particularly the fronts] due to both the high-speed nature of the layout and the long lap distance.


While Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is demanding of a car overall, it's actually relatively easy on the brakes. The circuit's largely high-speed corners mean there are very few heavy braking events. Combined with high average speeds, cooling is also less of an issue here than at many other circuits.


The British Grand Prix will feature the first use of the C1 compound in 2020 - the hardest in Pirelli's range - alongside the C2 and C3. However, should there be no rain between race weekends, track evolution will likely see the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix feature faster lap times and less stress on the tyres thanks to a softer allocation including the C2, C3 and C4 compounds.


Located on the site of a former airfield, wind is a much bigger factor to consider at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) than at most Grands Prix. Sudden gusts can easily catch a driver out in the corners, which also plays a part in the reasonably frequent appearance of the Safety Car here.


The team passed a significant milestone in Hungary, with Lance and Checo's 18-point haul taking Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) past the 100-point milestone in Formula 1. A Top 10 finish for Checo this weekend would make it 10 consecutive points-scoring finishes for both the Mexican and the team too!


What's the best thing about racing at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone)?

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It's great for the race team, because it means they get to stay at home and there's less travel - which is a definite plus considering we've just had a triple header and the new 2020 calendar is pretty full-on! It's also a home race for the whole team, so that gives everyone a boost and an extra drive to do well."


Will you miss having the British fans at the track?

LS: "Definitely. We miss having the fans everywhere we go - but the British fans are so enthusiastic and are real petrolheads. It feels like the heart of Formula 1 at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and you really feel that every time you race in front of those fans. It's a shame we won't get to experience it this time - but we'll try to put on a good show for those watching at home."


What are your expectations for the weekend?

LS: "It's promising that we've been able to start the first three races on the front foot and show our pace. We've now raced at two very different circuits in Austria and Hungary and we've been strong at both. That gives me confidence for the races ahead and we can target a good number of points here too."


What's it like racing at the team's home event?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It always makes me feel proud to race at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). Knowing I'm driving a car that nearly 500 people helped design and build in a factory just across the road gives me extra motivation to do well as a 'thank you' to everyone in the team. It can be quite an emotional event for all of us."


Will it feel strange to be racing in front of empty grandstands at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone)?

SP: "We will definitely miss the fans here. They are some of the most knowledgeable in Formula 1. Some of them even remember when you raced here in the lower categories! We're missing the fans at every race we go to - but the passion of the British fans is really amazing, so it will feel very strange."


The team currently sits P4 in the standings. Is that where you expected to be after three races?

SP: "It's great to be up there fighting at the front again. We had a tough year in 2019 and it shows that all the hard work we did over the winter to put that right was worth it. We've made a good start - but I think even more is possible. We've had some bad luck so far and the best is yet to come."

British GP: Preview - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "After completing three races, I think we can say we have a car that is honest, although we know there are things that need to be improved, especially in terms of aero. We can find more performance there. The car has no major weaknesses in any particular area. We have to improve two or three things to get a car that is better balanced. The most important thing is to find a bit more downforce. Looking at our performance, we have to consider that, in the mid-field, several teams have made a big step from last year, especially Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) and McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) and right away that has made for a bigger gap between them and us. Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) has clearly made enormous progress and can now be considered as part of the mid-field battle as are Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault). Now it's down to us to close on those in front and hopefully overtake them.



"I have been able to do a day in the simulator in Milton Keynes last week. It was a bit different to usual, with the travel restrictions, so my engineers could not be with me and we did the briefings with a video conference involving the people in Faenza and Bicester. It's not quite the same, but you get used to it!

"Now we come to another triple-header. Having had three races in a row, you do notice a bit of tiredness coming in, but to be fair, I didn't do much running in Hungary so I have nothing to complain about in that respect. However, for the rest of the team, the mechanics and engineers, it's a different matter as the pace is very busy and the necessary restrictions on the way we work adds to the difficulty. It's not easy for them doing a lot of triple headers and it's intense for everyone in the paddock.

"Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is one of the best tracks of the season. It has a lot of fast corners and you get into a rhythm through sections like Maggots and Becketts, which is one of the nicest of the year, making it very exciting. With these current cars, it has become a track where engine power is now more important than before, because the first corner is flat, then Copse that used to be the first corner is also flat, as is Maggots, so effectively there are fewer corner. So straight line speed is more important, but it's still great fun to drive. For the second race at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), we will all be using softer tyres which means we have to rethink some aspects of how we tackle the second weekend. On a track where you put a lot of energy through the tyres with all the high speed corners it will have an effect in qualifying and also in terms of how much oversteer or understeer you get and over a race distance, tyre management will be an important topic."


Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "It's great that Formula 1 has managed to put a calendar together and I was happy to be back racing again in Austria and Hungary. With three races behind us, it's still a bit hard to identify the strengths and weaknesses of our car. We are still working, me and the engineers, to find a solid baseline that we can start from at every race. In general, I was pleased with the race pace, but in quali in Budapest I was less happy with the car. But we think we know why that was and we are planning to try something different at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) this weekend to see if we can improve. I'm pleased with the way Sundays have gone, but if we could start from around tenth on the grid that would make life more straightforward and allow us to have a strong race. We will see if we can squeeze something more out of the single lap.

"The battle in the mid-field seems to be much closer than last year, for example, Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) has made a big step forward and they are ahead of us and I think that also applies to McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren). Those two will make life tough. Since Hungary, I've managed to do a session in the simulator and that was very useful for myself and the team. It had been such a long time since we had been without it. My engineers were with me via video call and it worked fine like that. It seemed unusual at first, but we managed to make it work well.

"We will now have another triple-header and having just done three races in a row, I would say it was fine, even if was quite demanding. It's a lot of racing, so you have to manage your energy levels and be equally fresh for all three races. Of course, it's tougher for the mechanics, but at least with all these races in Europe, the travelling doesn't involve any long flights and you're not dealing with jet lag.

"Now we have two races at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). It's a very interesting track and it can produce some good racing thanks to the long straights. I enjoy driving it and I hope we can find a good baseline set-up immediately, as that will be the key to a good weekend. To mix things up, we are getting different tyre compounds for the second race the following weekend at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). Having the softer tyres is a pretty big change and we will be trying to understand their behaviour as quickly as possible in free practice to identify the best way to manage them."

British GP: Preview - Alfa RomeoFew places on the Formula One calendar embody the spirit of the sport as well as Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) does. The British track, host to the first ever world championship race in 1950, is almost synonym with motorsport: as Formula One celebrated its 1000th race last year, we reminisced at length about that inaugural race in 1950 - won, of course, by Nino Farina in an Alfetta 158.



As the dominant force in the opening seasons of the world championship, the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) brand also wrote some historical pages in the sport - and therefore goes hand in hand with the British venue. And while the circuit, with its gleaming Wing towering on the start-finish straight, is a world apart from the bumpy airfield that saw that inaugural race take place, the feeling of being in a special place remains.


That's a good thing, then, since we'll be staying there for two weeks as Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) hosts the British Grand Prix and the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, two events in a fortnight on the fast Northamptonshire circuit. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is called home by seven of the ten Formula One teams, which are based in a small radius, known as Motorsport Valley, around the circuit. As we make the trip from Switzerland, however, we won't feel like outliers. We've conquered this place before - it feels like home already.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "The next three races will be another crucial juncture of the season. We come from the first real break, after the opening triple header: it's been the first chance for the teams to regroup, assess the situation and start addressing the rest of the year, so it will be important to show we have made use of the time since Hungary to make progress. We have a much more defined idea of where the strengths, and weaknesses, of our package are and we keep working together to make another step forward after what we have shown in the first few races. The midfield battle is still close and I have full confidence that our team has what it takes, both in terms of personnel and machinery, to score regularly."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "The first few races haven't been ideal in terms of results but the important thing is that we are moving in the right direction. We have identified the areas where we need to improve and hopefully we will get to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) with the solutions needed to give us some extra competitivity. We have seen we can fight against most midfield cars on Sunday and we are confident we can come home with points from either of these two races."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I am looking forward to this British double race. We have had some difficult races so far but the team spirit is high and we know we can get back strongly if we all work together. On Sunday we are very competitive, we have shown that in each of the races so far, and if we put together a good qualifying we can be fighting for the top ten from lap one, so this has to be our objective going forward. We have seen in Austria that racing twice in the same venue gives some unique opportunities and we will be aiming to make the most of these two races."

British GP: Preview - HaasThe inaugural Formula 1 World Championship grand prix took place at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) back in 1950 and the circuit will be the host venue for the next two rounds of the 2020 season.



First up is the British Grand Prix, an event that can trace its history back to 1926, and has taken place at legendary venues Brooklands, Aintree, Brands Hatch and, consecutively since 1987, Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). The British Grand Prix is one of just two grands prix to have featured in each season of the Formula One World Championship and the 5.891-kilometer (3.660-mile), 18-turn Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) Circuit is located within the heart of the UK's Motorsport Valley. Seven of Formula One's 10 teams are based within a short drive of Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and for Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team it is a brief journey from its European workshop in Banbury.


The circuit is renowned for its iconic fast and fearsome sections, such as Copse, Maggots and Becketts, and Abbey, putting extreme G-forces and stresses through drivers, cars and tires alike. For that reason tire supplier Pirelli has nominated the C1, C2 and C3 compounds - the hardest trio from its range of five-dry weather tires.


The venue brings back happy memories for Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team, most memorably in 2018 when Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) and Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) locked out row four of the grid. Both drivers have race-winning pedigree at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), with Magnussen victorious in British Formula 3, while Grosjean was triumphant during his march to the GP2 Series title, both in 2011.

The crew heads to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) buoyed by its first top 10 finish of the 2020 campaign after Magnussen rose six places to score a point at the most recent event in Hungary.


It will be the first time in history that the British Grand Prix has taken place as late as August and despite its summer date eyes will still be pointed skywards at the fickle weather systems that can disrupt running, keeping teams and drivers on their toes.


The Hungarian Grand Prix proved to be the highlight, in terms of the overall performance of the VF-20, from the opening three races of the 2020 campaign. What made the difference there?

Guenther Steiner: "The Hungarian circuit was a little less power sensitive, therefore in the race we had a fair showing - a decent race pace. Qualifying was not to our liking to be honest; the advantage of the other cars is just too high. Like always though, we try to do our best each session."


While the call to pit both drivers on the formation lap in Hungary ultimately netted a pair of 10-second penalties post-race, is it a decision you stick behind given how the actual race played out?

GS: "For sure we would do the same thing again. The 10 second penalty was a little bit ambiguous. Unfortunately, we cannot appeal it because it's a time penalty - you're not allowed to appeal those ones. It was never done before, and it looks like if it's never been done before - and there's no clear regulation, you get a penalty. We need to move on from this, but for sure it spiced the race up for everybody. I don't think we should stop doing these things in racing, otherwise accountants can race in Formula One."


Do you adjust the team's approach moving forward for qualifying knowing that so-far it hasn't been an area of strength for the VF-20? Do you feel Q2 should be achievable for both cars on Saturday afternoons?

GS: "I obviously feel we should get in there but unfortunately we don't. We're just lacking the speed in qualifying and that's something we have to live with as we're not planning any big upgrades and there are no engine upgrades. We just need to fight and always try to do a good job, then we can hope we move on."


It feels like we've had a bit of everything across the first three race weekends - notably the one thing that has been consistent is the inconsistency - from variable weather session-to-session, reliability issues, qualifying performance versus race performance etc. Has it been hard to get a true feeling on where things stack up? And now that you've had time to reflect a little, what are you hoping for in terms of how the team develops the VF-20?

GS: "Yes, we've had a lot of inconsistency, but I think we know pretty well where we're at. We're not the fastest midfield car this year and we just need to deal with that one. We're always trying to get the best out of the package. We've not planned any development for this year, so we have to focus on getting the best out of what we've got this season and look to next year to try to do something better for that season. It will not be an easy year but we're here to stay."


What are the ingredients for a successful weekend setting up a car for Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) with its long, fast corners and how much of a role does experience, both driver and team, play in working through that set-up plan?

GS: "Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is a very challenging track for the drivers - they can obviously help a lot, like any other track, to be fast. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), with the high-speed corners, it's for sure a challenge for the drivers, but also for the team. Normally our car was pretty good on high-speed corners, this year I think it's a little bit different. We're just not fast enough on the corners. We just have to try to find the balance between medium-speed downforce and not losing out too much on the high-speed parts of the track."


The Hungarian Grand Prix proved to be the highlight, in terms of the overall performance of the VF-20, from the opening three races of the 2020 campaign. What made the difference there?

Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "I think we understood the car a little bit more, we tried to put it in a better place. I guess the layout of the circuit worked a tiny bit better for the car, so we were a bit more on the pace - matching the pace of others, which was good."


Do you adjust your mindset for qualifying knowing it's an area that so-far hasn't been an area of strength for the VF-20? Do you feel Q2 should be achievable for both cars on Saturday afternoons?

RG: "I think Q2 for both cars is our next target. I don't know if that's achievable in the next few races, but it's definitely where we're aiming to go. We'll work as hard as we can and obviously try to get there without affecting our race pace."


It feels like we've had a bit of everything across the first three race weekends - notably the one thing that has been consistent is the inconsistency - from variable weather session-to-session, reliability issues, qualifying performance versus race performance etc. Has it been hard to get a true feeling on where things stack up? And now that you've had time to reflect a little, what are you hoping for in terms of how the team develops the VF-20?

RG: "I think now this year we start to have an idea as to what the VF-20's like. We're now fighting with Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) and Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams) just a little bit behind the midfield, so we just have to try to get the car in an even sweeter spot. I think we've done a good job, but we're going to keep pushing and see what comes to us and see what we can improve."


What are the ingredients for a successful weekend setting up a car for Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) with its long, fast corners and how much of a role does experience play in working through that set-up plan?

RG: "First of all, with Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) you need to see what the weather's going to be like. It's Great Britain, you can have a lot of surprises, but that's the first thing to check. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) completely switches from being a fast circuit to a low speed circuit. Most of the high-speed corners are now either flat out or near flat out, the time you can gain is made into turns three, four, six and seven, and the last chicane - those are the low-speed corners. That's where you want to be performing very well in a modern car."


What are your favorite Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) moments, either from your junior career or from competing in the British Grand Prix throughout your Formula One career?

RG: "I've had some good moments at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), some great wins. The 2012 British Grand Prix was quite good fun. I had contact on the first lap, it took my front wing out, so I was forced to pit. I came back from being last on the first lap to finishing sixth at the checkered flag. I remember overtaking Jenson Button (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/4/jenson-button) in the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) on the outside of Copse, then Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) through Maggots and Becketts, I was just flying through the field having a lot of fun. That was definitely a good one."


The Hungarian Grand Prix proved to be the highlight, in terms of the overall performance of the VF-20, from the opening three races of the 2020 campaign. What made the difference there?

Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "I think we've learned a huge amount about the VF-20 in the first three races. It's been good to get to know the car a bit more and I believe we've been successful in making progress in the direction we've tried to go with this year's car in comparison to the VF-19. The car is much more drivable in the race, it's very usable, but we still need to find more qualifying pace - and we're working on that."


You stated after the race in Hungary that the car was very drivable, and you had the ability to keep pushing throughout the Grand Prix. Can you describe how that feels in the car and the confidence it gives you as a driver?

KM: "As I said, the car is just very usable, drivable, it's consistent through the corners, as well as through a stint on a set of tires. Last year's car, for example, you couldn't push for very long, then you lost grip in the tires. The VF-20 seems to keep the tires in the working window for the whole stint - much better than last year's car. I'd say that's really the main difference. The characteristics of the car on a single lap is also better, but obviously we need more overall performance to be able to get more out of it in qualifying and the race. The baseline of the car is really good though."


Do you adjust your mindset for qualifying knowing it's an area that so-far hasn't been an area of strength for the VF-20? Do you feel Q2 should be achievable for both cars on Saturday afternoons?

KM: "I don't feel currently that we are strong enough for any more than sneaking into Q2 in qualifying. We're much stronger in the race, as I've said, but we just have to do the best we can in qualifying to get us as far up as we can so we can fight in the race. We certainly need to focus on qualifying from here."


What are the ingredients for a successful weekend setting up a car for Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) with its long, fast corners and how much of a role does experience play in working through that set-up plan?

KM: "I would say the ingredient for a good weekend at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is lots of downforce, although you still have some pretty decent straights - so you do need straight line speed as well. I don't think we'll change our approach very much; I think we'll just try and get our car into the window. We'll use free practice for trying to get the car set-up right and get ourselves ready for qualifying and the race."


What are your favorite Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) moments, either from your junior career or from competing in the British Grand Prix throughout your Formula One career?

KM: "I've had many races at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). I've raced at the old track, the new track, and in many different race cars. I've won races there in the past in F3 and had pole position in Formula Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) 3.5. I've never really had the perfect Grand Prix there in Formula One - yet."

British GP: Preview - WilliamsWe head to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) this week, and the home of British motor racing for round four of the 2020 Formula One World Championship. The British Grand Prix marks the start of the next block of back-to-back races, with the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix following a week later, before the triple-header concludes at the Circuit de Barcelona (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/2/barcelona)-Catalunya in Spain.

Whilst the incredible British fans will be missed, the team is still looking forward to spending two weeks racing on home soil.



Despite numerous layout changes over the years, Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) has always maintained its essential character as one of the fastest tracks on the calendar. Historic corners like Maggotts, Becketts and Copse provide some of the biggest challenges for racing drivers anywhere in the world. With all this in mind, it is no surprise that Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) remains one of the most enjoyable circuits on the calendar and provides an exciting challenge for drivers and engineers alike.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Having enjoyed a weekend at home, we are all now keen to resume racing at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). Back-to-back races at one of the most iconic circuits on the calendar is a rare treat and, with the weather forecast looking good for both weekends, it is set to be a memorable period of the 2020 calendar. Racing at our home venue without the crowd will be strange, but we are still looking forward to racing hard and continuing to push the FW43 to its limits. The unique nature of Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) presents a very different set of challenges to the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring and the Hungaroring (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/6/budapest), and it will be a tremendous test of the car and the drivers.


Pirelli are providing their hardest three tyre compounds for the first weekend at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), but for the second weekend they will lower the stiffness one step. This could change the racing a little and place different demands on the chassis and driver.


We made good progress with the car during the opening three rounds of the season and were able to achieve some good qualifying performances at both venues. We are now in a good position to push the performance of the FW43 harder on race day as we look to score our first points of the season. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) will be a difficult challenge, but with some new parts becoming available following testing in Austria and Hungary, we are looking to maintain our early season momentum and continuing to close the gap to the leading teams.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67461/drivers/66/george-russell): It is going to be a strange feeling going to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) for my home Grand Prix without any fans. I am incredibly excited to go driving again at one of the best circuits of the year though, as it is always a joy to drive around Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and I will be giving it everything I have got.


It will be nice to have two races in the UK this year; I will be staying on site in a motorhome which will be a nice experience for me and something a bit different to usual. I think our pace won't be quite as strong as we saw in Budapest. In Hungary we well and truly exceeded expectations, and things were working really well for us in qualifying. I expect us to go back to our reality which is probably a more similar pace to what we saw in the first week of Austria. Nevertheless, myself and the team will be giving it all we have got.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I am extremely excited to get back racing and hit the track at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). It has always been one of my favourite tracks to visit and especially in these Formula One cars it is the perfect combination of super-fast flowing track, high grippy corners and high-performance downforce cars. It is going to be a lot of fun, and I'm really looking forward to getting to try it out. The break we have had from the last triple header to now has been good and given me time to analyse the first few races, where I did well and more importantly where I can improve. I'm looking forward to keeping the momentum going and seeing where we can improve altogether as a team.

British GP: Preview - PirelliThere are two different tyre selections for the Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) double-header. The Pirelli-backed British Grand Prix this weekend will have the C1 compound as P Zero White hard, C2 as P Zero Yellow medium, and C3 as P Zero Red soft. The 70th Anniversary Grand Prix one week later will be one-step softer: so C2 as the hard, C3 as the medium and C4 as the soft. This creates Formula 1 history: the first time ever that there has been two different tyre nominations for a double-header at the same venue.



This choice has been made to add an element of unpredictability from one race to the next, with teams having to re-think their strategies for the second Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) weekend.


During the first half-hour of FP2 at the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, all the teams will test unmarked 13-inch prototype slick tyres for next year, according to a run plan that will be defined by Pirelli. This will validate the development of tyres for 2021: the final season of 13-inch in F1.


Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is the first race of the year where there will be a really severe test of the tyres, which is also why it's the first race of 2020 where the hardest C1 compound is seen. This is thanks to the high energy demands of long and fast corners such as the Maggots and Becketts complex, which load up the tyres with sustained g forces.


Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) has been resurfaced twice in the last two years. Compared to last year, the surface should now be a little more mature and less oily as the bitumen settles. Track roughness is about average compared to the other circuits seen on the calendar.


Mario Isola: "With two races at the same venue, on a track that the teams know well, it was important to try and inject an additional element for the second race, which is why we are going one step softer for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix. The first nomination is what we had last year, which broadly speaking should create between one and two pit stops.

For the second race, depending on each driver's strategy, we could see mainly two stops. Gaining data on the C4, which will face an extremely big challenge at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), will be the key to the second race, while the teams will obviously already have plenty of information about the C2 and C3. Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is characterised by big lateral loads that put plenty of energy through the tyres, so avoiding overheating and managing degradation will be especially important.


"Finally, our 2021 tyres will be validated in a half-hour test at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) with all the teams, so there's plenty to focus on throughout these two weekends."


The British Grand Prix is the second Pirelli-sponsored race of the year after Austria, and there will be a third Pirelli-backed race this year too, at Mugello in Italy after Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza).


The 70th Anniversary Grand Prix celebrates 70 years of the Formula 1 World Championship, which was inaugurated at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) in May 1950 and won by Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) driver Giuseppe Farina - who went on to lift the first F1 title - on Pirelli tyres.

Las impresiones de los equipos después de la jornada de viernes:

British GP: Practice team notes - MercedesLews finished the morning session in second place, while Valtteri set the sixth fastest time. Valtteri ended the second session in P3, with Lewis in P5.



The team focused on single-lap performance on the Soft tyre, alongside long-run balance and the warm-up slope of the harder compounds.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): The car is feeling good out there, the first session was a bit trickier balance wise, but the feeling wasn't too bad during the second session. But the gaps are quite small, with both Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point) and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) looking strong. So, we obviously have some work to do. Normally we are able to make some good steps for Qualifying, so I'm optimistic that we can make some progress overnight. Conditions are going to be completely different for the rest of the weekend with lower track temperatures and a change in wind direction. That normally has quite a big effect on this track and it's going to be about who can react to those changes the quickest. We'll get to work tonight and see how much more performance we can squeeze out of the car, and hopefully it's going to be enough.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): It was quite a difficult day to be honest. The balance didn't feel quite right, and the wind made things really tricky out there today. So, we're going to work on it tonight and try to figure out why I haven't been feeling as comfortable as I would like. It's been a hard day of driving, but it's not a disaster and what's so great about this team is we continue to dive deep into the details - hopefully we'll make some good changes overnight. It's going to be cooler tomorrow and the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) and Racing Points look strong, so hopefully it'll be close out there.


Andrew Shovlin: You never know what others are up to on a Friday in terms of fuel loads and power, but it seems that we don't have the same pace advantage that we had in Budapest. Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) in particular look close on a long run. There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the car, and it's the same basic aero package, so we'll probably end up concluding that we've not adapted to the very hot conditions here as well as some others. Valtteri seemed happier with his car than Lewis but both feel that the tyres are running hot and that's making the car a bit of a handful at times on low and high fuel. It's quite a balancing act in terms of how you respond because we're expecting cooler weather tomorrow and need to be careful not to over-react. This car is competitive when we land it in the right window, and we've got a bit of time this evening and another session in the morning to work out how to do that. Hopefully we can finish tomorrow a bit higher up the timesheets.

British GP: Practice team notes - FerrariToday's free practice at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) for the British Grand Prix resulted in mixed fortunes for Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari). Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) had a more or less normal day, without any problems, as he worked his way through the programme laid out by the engineers. Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) however was very unlucky, losing the entire morning session and around a third of the one in the afternoon.



In the first 90 minutes, after two installation laps, Sebastian was called back to the pits to check the car for a suspected problem with the intercooler. Not wishing to take any risks, the team decided to remove the engine to carry out an in depth check and that meant the German was unable to get back out on track during the session. The problem on the SF1000 was fixed and Sebastian went out as soon as the pit lane was open on Hard tyres and did eight laps, the best in 1:30.955. However, not long after, he noticed a problem in the pedal area and so he returned to the pits. Having checked the car, the team decided to change the pedal assembly as a precaution and so Seb lost even more track time, eventually getting out again when the other drivers were focussing on high fuel runs. On his only qualifying simulation run, the German made a small mistake and could do no better than 1:28.869, 18th fastest in the session. Vettel then also switched to running in race trim. Therefore, over the two sessions, Seb completed 25 laps.


Both sessions went off according to plan for Charles who did 22 laps in the morning, gathering plenty of useful data as he also worked on fine tuning the set-up. The Monegasque ran Hard and Medium tyres setting a best time of 1:28.221, fifth fastest in the session. In the afternoon, Charles did a further 30 laps, bringing his total to 52 and on his qualifying simulation he did a 1:27.570, fourth overall. In the second part of the session, he too concentrated on running in race configuration on Medium tyres.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "It has been a reasonably good day as far as quali performance is concerned, but our race pace seems to be less strong. In the long run the car was extremely hard to drive, balance wasn't great and it was difficult not to make mistakes.


"Tomorrow and on Sunday, the temperature is going to be quite different and I believe we can still change quite a lot of things to see how to gain some race pace, probably by sacrificing some quali pace."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "It was a disjointed day and a shame to lose the morning session. Then in the afternoon, there was an issue with the brake pedal and that cost us some time so it was a bit difficult to get into a rhythm. All the same, even though we didn't do many laps, we learned a little bit that will be useful to help us improve the car for tomorrow and then we can see where we are. The track should be cooler tomorrow and we should also have a better day.


"Hulkenberg? There was a time when there were maybe six or seven German drivers around, so it's nice that I'm not the only one! It's good for Nico but for sure we also hope Sergio (Perez) gets better soon."

British GP: Practice team notes - Red BullAlex Albon: "There are a lot of positives to take from today despite the incident at the end of FP2. I'm fine and it wasn't that bad. The rear just went away quite quickly and I struggled to correct it. I thought I caught it and then I just got sent into a tank slapper. We'll have a look at the data and see what happened there. As a Team though I think we've definitely made a step. We expected worse coming into today but the car feels good and it was hooked up straight away from the first lap in FP1. Obviously I'm pretty sure the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) are hiding a lot so we'll be watching them tomorrow but otherwise on our side the car feels more balanced and I think we have a better understanding of it. The wind and temperatures tomorrow will be very different to what we've had today so it will be a little bit of a reset but it's looking good so far."



Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I got blocked on my fast lap and then moved on to race runs, so I don't have a proper time on the board for FP2 but in the end that doesn't matter on a Friday and it wasn't a bad day for us. We keep developing and bringing new parts to the car and they seem like they are working a bit better, so I'm happy with that and the direction.

There are of course still things that we can improve and on a Friday you don't know what the others are doing. We will keep working but overall the car looked and felt better today. On the long runs we also looked quite decent but who knows what the weather will be like for the rest of the weekend and how that will change things! Overall, I would say it was a positive day but we will see where we really are tomorrow."

British GP: Practice team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "We had a decent day in terms of getting through most of the run plan. FP2 was the only difficulty. A small setback towards the end meant I could only do two or three laps at my high-fuel pace, which is a bit frustrating.

Apart from that, we worked through the upgrades and some of the changes on the car for this weekend to get a better understanding of what we have. All in all, it was a difficult day with the wind affecting the car a lot. It made things tricky - but apart from that it was positive in terms of getting through what we needed to get through."



Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "It's been an intense Friday, testing the new upgrades and having to adapt to the track conditions. The wind picked up and the temperature rose quite a lot from FP1 to FP2, meaning the track was trickier for the tyres and made the car more challenging to drive. I would say it's been a positive first day, making improvements from FP1 to FP2, but the feeling with the car is not quite there yet. Our lap-time looks competitive, but some cars were caught out by the red flag, so we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see where we really are. Looking forward to it!"


Andrea Stella, Racing Director: "We had a busy programme for this Friday, which opens the double-header at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), with some aerodynamic upgrades to validate. Happily, the circuit stayed dry and, barring some minor bodywork damage, we didn't see any major problems and could complete the programme we'd planned. We could see the new parts are working, and I want to thank the whole team for the effort that went into designing and manufacturing those parts. It's a constant effort to improve the car, which is very important because the midfield is clearly very tight.


"The track was tricky today with a blustery wind and, like everyone else, it was tough to extract the maximum out of the car given the conditions. We expect the remainder of the weekend to be a little cooler; we have to be prepared to deal with all conditions and hopefully once again be able to compete for a place in Q3, to give ourselves the best chance of scoring good points on Sunday."

British GP: Practice team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team started its preparations for this weekend's Pirelli British Grand Prix today at a scorching hot Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone).



Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) was ninth quickest with team-mate Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) just a tenth down on the Australian in the afternoon session.


For FP1, Esteban ran the new spec bargeboards and floor on his Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) R.S.20 with Daniel using the upgraded parts in FP2 to run a comparison between the items. Esteban ended FP1 in seventh with Daniel 0.016secs behind in eighth.


The afternoon session saw both drivers predominantly run on Hard tyres in preparation for Sunday's race with a quick outing on Softs for pre-qualifying assessments.


Temperatures peaked at 35C on the Northamptonshire-Buckinghamshire border with strong gusts also playing a part on a busy Friday's practice. It is expected the temperature will cool significantly for the rest of the weekend, meaning today's running is not quite representative for qualifying and race conditions. There is, however, a 40% chance of rain on Saturday afternoon.


We're pleased with today's progress and the upgraded parts worked as expected. Conditions were extremely hot for Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and not what we expect for tomorrow or Sunday, which should be a lot cooler.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It certainly feels a bit different driving here without fans as it's one of the places you feel it most. It's always a fun track to drive, so I enjoyed taking on some of the high-speed stuff this place offers. In terms of our running, we showed some promising signs but, on my side, we lacked a bit of consistency in the car. On some runs, I felt happier than others, so we have some work to do there. As always, it's pretty close between a group of cars. The temperature is dropping tomorrow, so it should change quite a bit."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It was a pretty decent day, I would say. It was good to test the new updates and get a feel for the car on a very quick track, which contains a lot of high-speed corners. I found it interesting to test the car in tricky conditions with the heat and quite a strong wind. Overall, it worked quite well today but we have a bit of pace to come for qualifying tomorrow. We'll look through the data and be ready for tomorrow when it matters."


Ciaron Pilbeam, Chief Race Engineer: "It was quite a warm and windy day here, which affected the car and tyre behaviour throughout the day for everybody. The morning session was fairly straightforward for us and we worked through a series of set-up options. Esteban's afternoon session ran smoothly, but Daniel's was not quite so smooth. He had a cut in one of his tyres, which limited what he could do in the second half of the session. We have good data on both short and long runs, which we'll look through tonight and prepare for the rest of the weekend. The upgrades that we tested today seem to be working well. It looks like it's going to be much cooler for the rest of the weekend, and possibly wet on Saturday."

British GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It feels great to be back in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), which I think is one of the best tracks of the season and overall it was a good start to the weekend for us with many laps and tests completed. However, I still don't feel like I got the car exactly where I want it to be, so I'm confident that if we manage to make the right improvements overnight there's a bit more performance to come for tomorrow."



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "I think it was a productive day, even if the red flag compromised my session a bit when I was on my new tyre run. I had to abort my lap and go again with the used tyres, so that was a bit unfortunate. Other than that, I think we worked on a good number of things and I was also quite pleased with the balance of the car today, so we have to analyse everything tonight and see what we can do to improve more tomorrow."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "After the first very intense triple header, we managed to have a week back at the factory where the team put an awful lot of effort into understanding the data gathered from the first three events, trying to understand the limitations of our AT01. Apart from a few new parts to test, we came to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) with a number of set-up items to test and improve the performance of the car, so we had a busy Friday. Track temperatures were very high, so we need to be mindful of this taking the results from today because we expect the temperatures to come down for the rest of the weekend. Actually, tyre temperatures were quite an issue as it was very easy to overheat them, particularly with the very high pressures we have to run here, so the car was operating in a very different area compared to the previous events, where the temperature was cooler and the pressure was lower. We ran through our test programme but unfortunately, it wasn't as smooth as we would have liked. In terms of performance, in FP1 we feel we made a step forward, but in FP2 the red flags and the traffic did not allow us to get the best out of the option tyres on the short run. This means there is more to come, which is positive, so we will have to go through all the data, put it all together and come back with the best possible set-up for the rest of the weekend."

British GP: Practice team notes - Racing PointLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It's been a positive day and it feels great to be on top in FP2. The car was strong on both the short and long runs today, so it's a promising start to the weekend for us. We knew coming into the weekend that Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) could suit the car and it looks like we've got a good shot at some big points this weekend, although qualifying and the race are where it really matters! My heart goes out to Checo: we'll definitely miss having him around, but it's great to welcome Nico back to the team. I'm sure he's enjoying driving this car - and he's looking competitive, which is great."



Nico Hulkenberg (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/10/nico-hulkenberg): "It's been a really special last 24 hours. At 4.30pm yesterday, I took the call from Otmar and got on the plane. I arrived at the factory and had my seat fit until 2am. I got in the simulator at 8am this morning and had some useful prep work. I want to thank the team for their amazing work to get me into the car today, and the FIA for their help with the superlicence and turning it around so quickly. The main positive today is that we completed our programme and that I completed plenty of laps. It was a jump into the deep end, but I was able to see the potential of the car - even if I feel like I could have got more out of the soft tyre today. It's been great to work with some old faces again and that's been a help in getting up to speed too. I'm looking forward to working with everyone tonight to make sure we extract everything from the car tomorrow."

British GP: Practice team notes - Alfa RomeoThe British Grand Prix is always a highlight of our summer and, even in its sanitised, non-fans version, there's always something special about an event here. This weekend's surprises, of course, started even before the first cars hit the ground and we'd like to send our "get well soon" wishes to Checo Perez (and a "welcome back" to our old pal Nico Hulkenberg (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/10/nico-hulkenberg)): when faced with these things, the paddock really comes together and we hope to see the quick Mexican back in his car really soon.



Today's weather was a fine example of the aptly-named "glorious British summer": something that would get you to reach for the Pimm's and fire up the BBQ if only you didn't have two practice sessions to run. It was as hot as it was sunny, and the on-track action was pretty interesting as well - especially as our cars seemed to take a liking to the Northamptonshire track.


It's still early days and we know the road ahead is long, so we'll keep working to produce a good result this weekend. We also know that good weather doesn't tend to last long over here, and tomorrow may well be wetter than your average Glastonbury festival. We'll need to be ready for the changing conditions, even if the rain comes down in buckets.

Now, that would be a proper British summer...


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It's been a busy Friday but so far, so good. The times look a bit more promising, but it's only Friday and you can't really draw any conclusion from them. What we know is that there is still work to do to get the most out of this weekend. The upgrades seem to work as expected, but it's early days: who know what tomorrow is going to bring, especially with the weather. We will just go out and do our things and hopefully we can be in a better position than we have been before."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I'm pretty pleased with what we have shown today, although it's still early in the weekend and we cannot let ourselves get carried away. The morning was quite tricky, especially with the wind, but the afternoon was much better. I feel we made some good steps forward, both in terms of qualifying and race pace, and the upgrades we introduced for this race appear to be working well, so hopefully we can build on this. Tomorrow the conditions may be different, so we need to be ready for whatever we get: we will need to keep cool and just do our job."

British GP: Practice team notes - HaasThe fourth round of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship began with practice Friday at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) circuit as teams prepared for Sunday's British Grand Prix.



Two 90-minute sessions - FP1 and FP2 - ran under clear blue skies with the air temperature topping out at a balmy 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit) at the 5.891-kilometer (3.66-mile), 18-turn Northamptonshire circuit.

Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) and Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) started FP1 on the Pirelli P Zero White hard and Yellow medium compounds respectively. After logging their install and wake-up runs both drivers switched over to a set of the Red soft tires. Magnussen subsequently turned the 14th fastest lap with a time of 1:29.532 with Grosjean logging a 1:29.576 to place directly behind his teammate in 15th.


Track temperature hit 49 degrees Celsius (120.2 degrees Fahrenheit) to start FP2 where speeds improved for both Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) drivers. However, a 10-minute red flag stoppage caused by Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing's Alexander Albon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/67/alexander-albon) halfway through the session cut-short the qualifying simulation runs of Grosjean and Magnussen. Each banking just five laps on fresh sets of soft rubber, Grosjean clocked a 1:28.564 for 16th on the timesheets with Magnussen setting a 1:28.898 for 19th overall.

Both drivers ended the session with high-fuel runs to the checkered, Grosjean sampling the soft and medium rubber on his stint to the flag, Magnussen utilizing the soft and hard compounds.


Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team ran a total of 102 laps Friday - 52 by Grosjean and 50 by Magnussen.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "It was actually a positive day in the way that the car behaved and so on. I think we also made some good set-up changes that helped me to feel better in the car in the afternoon - which is great. The challenge for the rest of the weekend is that we won't see those high temperatures again, therefore all the work that's been done today needs to be extrapolated into what we think Sunday's going to be like. The balance has been okay and we're getting the best of the car, but after that we're 16th and 19th, so that's obviously not ideal. We wish we could be in a better position, but we just have to do the best that we can. Hopefully tomorrow we get one car into Q2 and mid-term we end up getting both cars in Q2. In the race we need to see if we can get better degradation than other people."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "It was hot today, which made things difficult - the tires got really hot. At this track, with the high-speed corners, when it's this hot, it's very easy to overheat the tires. It was an interesting day and it'll be interesting to see if tomorrow's cooler temperatures are better for us, that'll be another element of our learning of the VF-20. It doesn't look like we're very fast, but we expected that and we're trying to work with what we have. I think there's a little bit more to find but we'll see."

Guenther Steiner: "The temperatures have been a lot higher today than they will be on Sunday, at least that's what we've been told, so maybe today's not relevant. We're still lacking speed - which we knew coming here. We'll be a little bit on our backfoot here at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), that became a little more evident in FP2 obviously. At the moment we keep trying to do the best job that we can. We will always keep on fighting."

British GP: Practice team notes - WilliamsDave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Although each of today's sessions were interrupted by red flags, we still worked through most of our plan. Each driver looked at different set-up trades as we sought to balance the performance on the straights and the high-speed corners. The hot blustery conditions made this a little difficult, but between the cars we gained enough experience to get the best compromise for tomorrow.



The conditions are expected to be a little different on Saturday and if the wind changes direction then we may need to make some further compromises. However, that is normal for Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and the other teams will face the same dilemmas.


Compared to Hungary we thought that we might struggle a little more here, but we made decent progress today and we are a bit closer to our competitors than we feared. The car is working reasonably well, and we will see how things pan out when it really matters tomorrow afternoon, but we are hoping to be able to challenge for Q2.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67490/drivers/66/george-russell): It was difficult out there today, the pace was ok, probably where we expected it to be. As a team this circuit does not suit our car as much as Hungary. The Alfa Romeos seem pretty fast so I think we will be in competition with Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) this weekend. We are trying to find the right compromise between downforce and drag. We have got a lot of straights here but a lot of high-speed corners so you need to try and run as little as you can without compromising Copse, Maggotts and Becketts.


Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is my home race, last year was such a buzz with all the fans and sadly we don't have that this year. However, the excitement levels are more because of the pace of the car. We are still not where we want to be but at least we have a small fighting chance.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): Overall from my experience driving the track I enjoyed it quite a lot. It is my favourite on the calendar, so I was looking forward to driving these cars around here. It is good fun with lots of high speed. In general, in P1, the first runs were not so bad and then we had an issue which took away a bit of the programme. We tried some things going into P2 which didn't really work out in terms of the feeling of the car. I was not at the pace I wanted to be. I was struggling with consistency, as well as some consistency in my own driving that carried over into the high fuel runs which I wasn't happy with. I think we have an idea of why it was so difficult, but we definitely have a lot to analyse tonight.

British GP: Practice team notes - PirelliTemperatures at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) were the hottest seen for several years, peaking at 37 degrees ambient and 51 degrees on track, adding to the challenge of this high-speed and high-energy circuit.



Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)'s Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) set the fastest time of the FP2 session this afternoon on the P Zero Red soft tyre, around half a second slower than the equivalent time from last year.


As a result of the recent lockdown, the Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) track hasn't been used extensively, meaning that the surface that was re-asphalted last year hasn't matured much. The wind and high temperatures today also often made it quite difficult for the drivers to find the right levels of grip and aerodynamic balance.


In these tough conditions, the P Zero White hard C1 tyre - nominated for the first time this year - offered a good compromise between performance and durability.


Mario Isola: "Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is always a tough challenge, but when the track is 'green' on a Friday and in these extremely hot conditions, the job of the tyres becomes even harder. Because weather conditions are likely to become considerably cooler for the rest of the weekend, that makes life a bit harder for the teams: the data they collect today might not be entirely relevant to the expected race conditions. It was interesting to see that 17 cars out of 20 were covered by just 1.5 seconds in FP2, which suggests that we're in for a closely-fought weekend."

En Mercedes ya se han cansado de jugar al escondite y comienzan el sábado en lo alto de la clasificación, con Valtteri BOTTAS en primera posición seguido por HAMILTON. Tras ellos, VERSTAPPEN.

STROLL comenzó la sesión cometiendo algunos errrores pero al final ha terminado 4º, justo por delante de Carlos SAINZ.

Los Ferrari siguen discretos, sobre todo VETTEL, que ha finalizado 14º a 1.3 de los Mercedes. LECLERC ha terminado 6º, entre los McLaren de Sainz y NORRIS.

ALBON ha vuelto a tener problemas. Tras su vuelta de instalación tuvieron que cambiarle la batería, por lo que ha podido rodar solo al final y gracias a que ha salido.

Lewis HAMILTON consigue una nueva pole en Silverstone, la séptima en este circuito. Logró reponerse de su errror de Q2 y marcó un nuevo récord de la pista al parar el crono en 1:24.303.

La primera línea la completa Valtteri BOTTAS mostrando en gran dominio de Mercedes ya que el tercero, Max VERSTAPPEN, quedó a un segundo de diferencia.

Tras él ha terminado LECLERC, que ha hecho una gran sesión, sobre todo si lo comparamos con VETTEL que ha estado cometiendo muchos errores y solo ha podido ser 10º y a 2 segundos de Hamilton.

Lando NORRIS se marcó una gran segunda vuelta en Q3 logrando terminar en 5ª posición, quedando por delante de STROLL, que logró pasar a Q3 por los pelos a pesar del gran coche que tiene. Checo, y el resto del equipo, deben de estar tirándose de los pelos viendo la oportunidad perdida.

Carlos SAINZ no ha podido hacer una buena vuelta en Q3 y ha terminado 7º y a casi dos décimas de Norris.

Dos décimas han separado a los pilotos de Renault, con Ricciardo finalizando 8º y Ocon 9º.

GASLY no logró pasar a Q3 tan solo por haber marcado su tiempo después que Stroll, ya que ambos marcaron el mismo tiempo.

ALBON ha seguido con su mal fin de semana y ha terminado 12º.

Tras él ha terminado HULKENBERG, que se quedó a solo 65 milésimas de pasar a Q3.

Haas y Alfa Romeo siguen sin mejorar lo más mínimo, mientras que en Williams sigue destacando RUSSELL, que terminó 15º.

Menudos vueltones se ha sacado "de la nada" Hamilton, si ya resulta predecible la manera de esconderse de Mercedes hasta el final, para esto Lewis es el "namber guan". La verdad, pensaba que Valteri opondria algo mas de resistencia viendo su forma hasta el final pero es que tiene enfrente a una bestia parda. Me ha sorprendido como a todos lo de Albon y el gran tiempo de Leclerc.

Lo de Mercedes, sin calor, es un paseo triunfal, con calor ya sufren más. Bottas no tiene un buen día todos los días :gaydude::risitas:, y a Hamilton no le hace falta.:cunaooooo:

Una pena la falta de conocimiento específico de Hulk con el MercePink, para la del 70º Aniversario puede ser una buena ocasión de podio :sherlock:, como clon Mercedes es. :sherlock:

Sorpresa de Leclerc, que ha mejorado 0,8s el tiempo de Q2 a Q3 :glassesf:, y el opuesto de Vettel con solo una décima :sherlock:.

Sorpresa también, aunque menor, la caida de Albon, pero desde ayer está depre el chico.
Curioso que Max y Marko no estén tan contentos con Honda ahora, por más que Newey se esté comiendo el sapo de un chasis no tan bueno :sherlock:, pero es que los AlphalfaTauri :gaydude: tampoco van como el año pasado :sherlock:.

Lewis Hamilton conquista pole position em Silverstone
Pela 7ªVez em Silverstone a pole ficou com Lewis Hamilton. O Inglês chega a 91ªpole da carreira. Foi uma pole position conquistada após ter rodado na segunda parte da classificação, a sessão era dominada por Valtteri Bottas nas duas primeiras fases da sessão.


Na primeira parte, os pilotos da Alfa Romeo e Haas foram para a pista tentando ver se conseguiam passar para o Q2, mas com os fracos motores Ferrari iria ser difícil. Tanto é que Danill Kvyat segundos depois coloca 1 segundo em cima deles. Depois esse tempo acabou superado por Stroll e Leclerc.


http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ING2020_1_sab-2-1024x683.jpg

A brincadeira acabou quando Bottas e Hamilton marcaram seus tempos. Verstappen chegou a ficar entre os dois pilotos, mas na volta seguinte, tanto Bottas como Lewis melhoraram suas marcas e acabaram garantindo seus lugares no Q2. Nos minutos finais, o restante que não estava garantido acabou indo para a pista, George Russell acabou fazendo uma ótima volta, mas acabou marcando essa volta enquanto uma bandeira amarela era agitada. Por coincidência, provocada pelo seu companheiro de equipe Nicholas Latifi.


http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ING2020_1_sab-21-1024x683.jpg

Obs: Russell foi punido com 5 posições no Grid de largada, por que ignorado a bandeira amarela no final do Q1.
Não tivemos nenhuma surpresa entre os pilotos Eliminados, Kevin Magnussen, Antonio Giovinazzi, Kimi Raikkonen, Romain Grosjean e Nicholas Latifi. O mais rápido foi Valtteri Bottas, com Hamilton e Verstappen completando o Top 3.

Com os pneus médios, Valtteri Bottas marcou 1:25.015, O novo recorde do circuito. A Mercedes esta bem mais a frente do que as outras equipes. Ao mesmo tempo, Lewis Hamilton acaba errando na saída da Luttield e foi para a brita. Com a terra espalhada na curva Woodcote, a bandeira vermelha foi acionada a 8 minutos e 51 segundos do final do Q2.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ING2020_1_sab-3-1024x683.jpg

Hamilton não tinha tempo e acabou sendo o primeiro a sair da pista assim que o treino recomeçou, Acabou marcando um tempo que foi mais do que suficiente para ficar com a segunda posição. No final da segunda parte, todo mundo foi para a pista. Vettel e Stroll arriscaram a usar os pneus médios, já todos os outros piloto foram com os pneus macios. Hamilton e Bottas só colocaram os pneus macios para darem uma volta com esses pneus, nem era para marcar volta.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ING2020_1_sab-16.jpg

Já os outros precisavam de tempo para passar ao Q3. Porém, poucos pilotos melhoraram seus tempos. Os eliminados acabaram sendo Pierre Gasly da Alpha Tauri, Alexander Albon da Red Bull, Nico Hulkenberg da Racing Point, Danill Kvyat da Alpha Tauri e George Russell da Williams.
Alexander Albon mais uma vez fica de fora do Q3 enquanto ele ver seu companheiro de equipe Max Verstappen tranquilamente no Q3, disputando as primeiras posições. O Tailandês vai ficando com a situação cada vez mais difícil naquele moedor de carne.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ING2020_1_sab-7-1024x683.jpg

Stroll e Gasly empataram em tempo na 10ªposicão. Ambos fizeram 1:26.501, mas o canadense ficou com a última vaga para o Q3 por ter feito o tempo primeiro do que o piloto francês. Nico Hulkenberg não conseguiu levar o carro da Racing Point ao Q3, mas deve se lembrar, que ele teve o primeiro contato com esse carro nos treinos livres de ontem. Pois é natural para quem estava fora de ritmo de corrida.

http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ING2020_1_sab-1-1024x682.jpg

Max Verstappen conseguiu a 3ªposição, conquistada no final da classificação, A Red Bull que tinha esperanças de alcançar a Mercedes , hoje percebeu que as inovações que trouxeram da Fábrica em Milton Kempes acabaram se mostraram insuficientes para isso.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ING2020_1_sab-15-1024x683.jpg

Charles Leclerc tirou leite de pedra da sua Ferrari para conseguir o 4ºlugar e formar a segunda fila com o piloto Holandês. Lando Norris com seu capacete pintado pela criança chamada Eva fez mais uma belíssima classificação e vai largar na 5ªposição. Lance Stroll fez um belo treino como líder da equipe nesse final de semana e vai largar em 6ºlugar.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/ING2020_1_sab-8-1024x576.jpg

Daniel Ricciardo e Esteban Ocon colocaram os carros franceses em uma boa posição para a corrida.

Declaraciones de los equipos finalizada la jornada de Sábado:

British GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesLewis scored the 91st pole position of his F1 career - his third of 2020, seventh at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) and his 100th front row place with the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) F1 Team. Valtteri finished in P2, marking his 66th consecutive appearance in Q3 - equalling the record for most Q3s in a row, previously set by Lewis.



Lewis's pole lap of 1:24.303 is a new Formula One track record at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone). The result marks the eighth pole position in a row for the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) F1 Team at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), breaking the record for most consecutive pole positions at the same track. Both drivers will start the 2020 British Grand Prix on the Medium tyre.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): This feeling never gets old, that's for sure! We made some changes to the car going into Qualifying and it felt worse, so it was a real struggle out there in the first two sessions. At this track, there can be a headwind, tailwind and crosswind all at different parts of the circuit, so it's like juggling balls whilst you are on a moving plate.

Qualifying is a lot about building confidence and after that spin in Q2, I had to take some deep breaths, compose myself and mentally reset - especially knowing Valtteri was putting in fast lap after fast lap. Q3 started off well, the first lap was nice and clean, but the second one was even better. A big thank you to everyone at the team, working at the track and at the factories not far from here, for all their tireless work and continuing to push us forward. I'm really proud to be a part of it. It's going to be strange racing out there tomorrow without any fans, we definitely miss them and it's just a completely different energy. I know they'll be watching from home and supporting us, so hopefully we can put on a good show for them.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): It's disappointing to be second but the reality is that Lewis found more time in Q3, I just couldn't quite catch him. He did a really good job today and deserves to be on pole. It was a pretty smooth session and I had some clean laps in Q1 and Q2 - the car felt pretty good out there. But I had a harder time in Q3 as I struggled to attack the slow-speed corners and the rear end was drifting more than before. But tomorrow is what counts and I think my long-run performance has been really good this weekend. I believe there will be opportunities, and everything is still wide open, so I'm looking forward to it.


Toto Wolff: We can be very satisfied with our qualifying session today although I guess we're not making many new friends out there. Our car was working very well today, it was really in a league of its own and the performance shows all the smart work that has gone into it at the factories just down the road from here. Both Lewis and Valtteri really delivered today as well and were able to extract everything out of the car. We can be really happy the result today, but we know that the points are scored tomorrow, and our competitors will put up a hard fight. We're determined to give it everything and carry our momentum into the race to hopefully put on a good show for everyone supporting from home.


Andrew Shovlin: Well done to the team and the drivers on this front row lockout, particularly to Lewis on his fantastic lap for pole. It's not been easy for him and Valtteri to put the laps together here; the wind has a big effect on the car balance and as soon as you start sliding, the tyre temperatures rise, and you lose grip. The conditions may have moved in our favour today, but we were also doing a better job of managing the tyre temperatures at the start of the lap. We're looking forward to the race tomorrow; we don't quite know where Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) are on pace. They looked very close to us on the long runs yesterday and have generally looked better in race trim than qualifying so we will be prepared for a fight and won't be taking anything for granted.

Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) will be on the fourth spot on the grid and Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) the tenth, when the British Grand Prix starts tomorrow at 14.10 local (15.10 CET) at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) circuit.


In the first part of qualifying both drivers took to the track on the Soft tyre. Charles immediately posted a good 1:26.550, while Sebastian went from 1:26.951 to 1:26.894, not good enough to ensure he would make the cut. He therefore went out on another set of new Softs, and secured a place in Q2 in 1:26.469.


In this phase, the team decided to split the strategies, sending Charles out for his first run on the Medium tyres and Seb still on Softs. The Monegasque set a great 1:26.203, while the German did a 1:26.455. As usual, everyone went out for one more run and again the Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) duo opted for different tyres: Seb tried to do a time on the Mediums, while Charles waited for the very last seconds to leave the garage on Softs, but he aborted the run as soon as it was clear that his time on Mediums was good enough to make the cut. Only a few drivers managed to improve, so both Scuderia drivers were into the top ten shoot-out. Charles will therefore start the race on Medium tyres, which will be a significant factor in terms of strategy with Seb on the Softs.


For the twelve minute session to set the places for the front five rows of the grid, both drivers had two sets of new Softs available. On the first run Charles stopped the clocks in 1:26.013, while Seb did a 1:26.339. Back on track with the second set for the SF1000s, Leclerc produced a great lap of 1:25.427, improving by six tenths, to secure fourth place on the second row. Vettel unfortunately had his best lap of 1:26.077, which would have secured him a place higher up the grid, disallowed for exceeding track limits at turn 9 and thus has to start from the tenth slot on the grid. So far, Sebastian has had a tough weekend. Technical problems mean he only managed 25 laps in the whole of Friday and again this morning, in free practice, he had a problem that delayed him in the final stages of the session.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "A much better quali than we had hoped for. I am very very happy with the job we have done and with my final lap, where I think I got everything together and the car was feeling pretty good in terms of balance. I don't think there was anything more to extract from the car and I am very pleased with P4. Also, I had a great lap in Q2 on the Medium tyres, which got us through to Q3. It was a really good decision!


"We have been struggling yesterday with race pace so realistically it's going to be difficult tomorrow, but we have changed the car a little bit overnight, which didn't affect our quali pace apparently, and with a good strategy, I hope we'll manage to get some advantage from our tyre choice. I'm really looking forward to tomorrow and hopefully we can score some good points."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I have struggled a little bit the whole weekend so far and qualifying was a bit up and down. It was not ideal, as I found it difficult to get the car working for me, even though it was not too bad. I had trouble getting into a rhythm.


"So, it was not a good session and although we made it to Q3, we were not on the ideal tyre and didn't make enough progress."


Laurent Mekies Sporting Director: "It was a very intense qualifying that ended with one driver fourth and the other tenth. Charles' performance was magisterial, not just to get on the second row, the best we have done during this difficult start to the season, but also because he made the cut to the final part of qualifying on the Medium tyres, which is the best choice for the first stint of the race.


"Sebastian has had a rather troubled weekend so far and all the time he lost because of various technical issues certainly didn't put him in the best possible shape for qualifying. Tenth place is essentially a logical consequence of that.


"Of course, we can't be satisfied with this result, especially when one looks at the gap to pole position. We know we have a lot of work to do to close this gap and that's what we are working on. Tomorrow's race will be difficult, especially when it comes to tyre management. As usual, our aim is to bring home as many points as possible."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "In general, I would say we had a good qualifying session and got everything out of the car that we could. My final lap in Q3 was good but you could see very early on that Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) were too fast, just like they have been for the past few races. I'm happy with P3 and it gives us a fighting chance for tomorrow, so I hope we can get a clean start and keep the pressure up. The wind is a big factor here and these cars are very sensitive to that. Yesterday it was really tricky with the low speed corners but we are still learning about the car and trying to improve it. I think we have found a good direction, it seems more predictable this weekend and it was a lot of fun to drive today. I don't think there was much more I could do but let's see tomorrow. We will try to score some good points, at least stay in third, but we always hope for a little bit more."



Alex Albon: "We were looking pretty strong this weekend and yesterday was a lot better than today but it's not a weekend to forget yet and there is still a race tomorrow. We were on the back foot slightly heading into qualifying after missing the track time in FP3 and I just struggled getting up to speed. It was tricky out there, the wind is changing all the time and the balance changes with that so we needed a bit of fine tuning. The times in Q2 are also obviously very tight out there so a small amount of time was worth a lot of grid positions and we just lost out. It is what it is but tomorrow we have free tyre choice so hopefully we can do something special with that and get some good points."


Chrisitan Horner: "I would be lying if I said today hasn't been frustrating, especially with the kind of margins we are looking at to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes). We know this track always suits their car but they are incredibly quick at the moment but we have to keep the pressure on them as much as we can. The wind has a massive impact on the aero of these cars and their performance which can unsettle the car and in turn the driver. It was disappointing for Alex and the Team not to make it to Q3 but losing the track time in FP3 hurt him, especially after yesterday's off. Max did a great job to wring everything out of the car to line-up on the second row which is actually our best qualifying here since 2016. The gap to the front remains our focus and clearly there is work to do for us as a Team, but we won't stop pushing. Our race pace is often more competitive compared with qualifying so hopefully we can maximize our points haul tomorrow with both cars."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "First of all, the team did a great job getting the car ready for quali because we had to make some big changes so we didn't quite get out on time - but we got out, so thanks to the team for their hard work. It was a messy qualifying: I made mistakes on a couple of my runs, especially the first one. I went off the track, compromised myself and lost a bit of confidence throughout the first half of qualifying, which wasn't ideal.



"I was trying to play catch-up and get in a good rhythm and I didn't really do that until the final session. On the old tyres I matched what I did on the new tyres before, so I felt a bit more confident going onto the new set that had more grip, and I could push that little bit more. It's a great result, especially here at my home race. Tomorrow's the important day where we have to convert it into a good result."


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "It was a very strong day for the team. For me in particular I've had a better feeling with the car as the weekend has gone by, so we made some progress on the balance and the set-up. In general, I would say there's still some work to do, but I'm happier with the car and we're in a good position for tomorrow. My last lap in Q3 wasn't exactly as I wanted though. I lost some time in the exits and with traction coming onto the long straights but, still, P7 and a good starting position for the race."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "This is our fourth qualifying session of 2020 and we've got both cars into Q3 on all four occasions. Well done to the team here at the track and back home for making that possible, and also to the drivers who pulled out the laps when it mattered most.


"FP1 and FP2 were challenging, but the team worked hard overnight to improve the car which helped us maximise the performance of the new components we brought to the track on Friday. Both drivers were a lot happier with the balance in FP3, which gave us a lot of confidence going into qualifying. We had some extra work to do on the cars after P3 and both car crews did a great job to finish just in time. With the yellow flags, red flags, blustery wind and traffic management, there were a lot of variables in play this afternoon, but the team focused, worked hard and got through the challenges. Starting the race tomorrow in P5 and P7 is an excellent return and puts us in a position to fight for good points. We now need to switch our focus to preparing for the race tomorrow."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team reached Q3 with both cars in today's qualifying for the Pirelli British Grand Prix with Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) eighth and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) ninth at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone).



After yesterday's heat and strong wind, today's conditions at the British track were significantly cooler with a change in wind direction.


As a result of a hairline fracture on Friday, Daniel's chassis was replaced overnight ahead of the morning's FP3 session.

For Q1, both drivers took two runs on Softs tyres with Esteban progressing to Q2 in seventh and Daniel in eleventh.

Esteban's first run in Q2 was good enough for fourth with Daniel predicted to slot in narrowly behind his team-mate, only for a red flag to compromise his lap-time. With a clean lap, Daniel managed to be within 0.087secs of Esteban with both drivers through to the top 10 shootout.


An initial run on scrubbed Soft tyres put Esteban ninth and Daniel in tenth before Daniel found a decent improvement on his new set to leapfrog Esteban into eighth, with the Frenchman settling for ninth at the chequered flag.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "I'm happy with eighth place today, especially in quite tricky conditions. It was a clean lap, no mistakes, nothing too spectacular, but good enough for eighth and just short of seventh. It was pretty close there with a few of us within half a second of each other. We've been in and around the top 10 all weekend, so we can be pleased with today's performance. Tomorrow's race will be interesting, especially in the battle for sixth or maybe fifth position. We're starting on the Softs, as are most people around us, so we'll see what we can do. Taking home good points is the target."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It's been a good qualifying overall. It was a very positive session, especially Q1 and Q2, where we were quite comfortable. We lost it a little bit in Q3, so we'll review what happened there. I'm happy with the progress from Hungary and we need to keep going. We seem to have better pace on Sundays, and qualifying has been the area where we've needed to find the most improvements. I think tomorrow will be good, we're in amongst the top 10 and we have a good opportunity for some decent points."


Alan Permane, Sporting Director: "It was a tricky session with the conditions as the wind was picking up between Q1 and Q2, which made it difficult and often unpredictable, especially in the very high-speed corners here. We're very happy to have both cars in Q3, of course, and we have promising starting positions on the grid. Now, we look forward to a trouble-free race tomorrow. Our race pace, as ever, looks very strong from our Friday simulations, so we will look to capitalise on our start positions and make sure we score decent points in the race."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm happy with my Qualifying today! We had the pace for Q3 again and matching the lap time of Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point), which is at the moment one of the top cars on the grid, is really positive and it means we did a pretty good job on our side. Starting the race from P11 tomorrow gives us a free tyre choice and I think we have the chance for a good result in the race. We made progress since the start of the weekend so hopefully, we can finish within the top 10 tomorrow and bring home some points."



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "My lap was really good and I'm quite satisfied with it. We changed a few things and I felt more comfortable in the car today, I had more confidence going through certain corners, which felt great, and the only place where I was losing a bit of time compared to Pierre was the straight line. I'm starting five positions further back due to my penalty, so I know it won't be easy tomorrow, but I generally feel strong during the race. I will push as hard as I can, as scoring points still remains my goal."


Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "What we learned yesterday and today in FP3 suggests that the new parts we have introduced at this event, combined with the new set-up direction investigated during Friday, have combined into an improved package here in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) which both drivers are managing to exploit, and this is positive. However, the midfield is very competitive, so we need to continue on this trajectory.


"Q1 itself was as expected, we navigated the session without incident whilst Q2 was interrupted by a red flag when both cars were out for their first run. As such, there was only the opportunity for a single run at the end of the session, which wasn't ideal. Pierre set an identical time to Stroll on his final run but later in the session, so he qualified P11 and not P10, whilst Dany qualified 14th, but unfortunately has a 5-place grid penalty due to a gearbox change.


"Although in some respects it's disappointing not to make it to Q3, having one car in 11th position provides some extra strategy options, so we should feature in the midfield fight from lights out. As for Dany, we are probably going to have to be more creative to try and get him into the same position."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - Racing PointLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "The positive today is that we're starting P6 tomorrow and our strategy worked out - meaning we have the advantage of starting on the medium tyre and that should help us fight some of the cars around us. We're definitely in a position to fight for another good bunch of points, and that's the goal. We looked stronger in practice yesterday, so we need to go away and understand how we can come back stronger tomorrow. It was difficult to find the optimum balance of the car today, and that affected us in the first sector - we lost a little bit of time there in qualifying. The temperature and wind conditions were different today and were quite changeable, so that was a challenge to work around as well. Overall, I'm happy with our position and tomorrow is another day. I'm confident we can make some positive steps
overnight and be in good shape for our home race."



Nico Hulkenberg (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/10/nico-hulkenberg): "We were so close to making it to Q3, and I'm happy with that considering I've come in from the cold this weekend! It's a big ask after eight months away to come back and jump into a completely different environment - and into a Formula 1 car I've never driven before and immediately perform. Especially when Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) is such a high-speed challenge and the conditions were changeable throughout the day. That meant it was a little bit of a shock to the system today, and it was tricky to hook up the laps perfectly - especially in the first sector. It was a challenge to use both the soft and medium tyre in Q2 and maintain the rhythm, but we almost made the strategy work - which shows the team and I are working well together. I'm also starting to get an understanding of the car, so the goal is to keep learning and adapting quickly. We'll do our homework tonight and aim to score good points tomorrow."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "We took an aggressive approach to qualifying today with Lance running on the medium tyres in Q2. It was a difficult call, but we felt the strategic benefits for the race made the risk worthwhile. Lance made it work and progressed to Q3. Nico didn't quite make the top ten - which is understandable given that he's been thrown in at the deep end and only drove the car for the first time yesterday. From P13, with competitive race pace, I'm confident he can score points tomorrow. Lance wasn't totally happy with his Q3 lap, but sixth place on the grid sets us up nicely for our home race. The margins were very close today - which shows how competitive the entire grid is this year - and it will be the same tomorrow. I think we can take the fight to the teams around us and come away with another strong result."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa RomeoThere are positives to be taken from today's qualifying performance. What has been, so far this season, the team's weakest spot has turned out to be our bogey once more, but there are signs of improvement, and a positive attitude is palpable throughout the squad as a result.



We may be contemplating another Q1 exit with both cars, as Antonio finished 17th, just ahead of Kimi in 18th; but the reality speaks of a toss-up over whether we could make it to Q2. Our gap to our direct rivals has shrunk - on a track we did anticipate being difficult for our package - and we climbed one grid row compared to the last race.


It's still not what we want, of course: but, given the better pace we showed on Sundays so far, we can be hopeful in a battling display tomorrow. The objective remains the same - a place in the top ten; the tools at our disposal to achieve it, however, are giving us an extra chance. Baby steps it may be, but they're in the right direction.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "We are still far from where we want to be, but we are heading in the right direction. We are getting closer to a place in Q2 and we have to take this as motivation to progress further. Antonio's and Kimi's laps were as good as they could be, except for some traffic at the end of Kimi's, and we can look positively at the small gap we had from the top 15. Our task now is to convert these starting positions into points: our race pace has been considerably better than what we have shown on Saturday, so we need to maximise the opportunities it will offer us to claim a place in the top ten."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "The car has been stronger this weekend, I had a good feeling with it and the handling was good, but it's obvious we are still missing something. I could have been a bit higher up on the grid but I got held up at the last corner, although in fairness the end result wouldn't have been too different. We have things to work on as a team, we made an improvement but we need to keep going in this direction. Tomorrow's race should be interesting: I expect us to be better and we should be fighting for a place in the top ten."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "We have made a few steps forward so we can be happy about this: there is still a lot of work to do, of course, but we are a bit closer to the others and we are moving in the right direction, which is giving us a lot of motivation. I am very happy with my lap, I feel it was as good as it could have been but it was just not enough for a place in Q2. As in the previous rounds, our race pace looks a bit better so I think we have a chance to battle for some points. We will try to have a good start, put up a good fight and we'll see what happens."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - HaasHaas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) and Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) qualified 16th and 19th, respectively, for Sunday's British Grand Prix, the fourth round of the 2020 FIA Formula One World Championship at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) Circuit.



Both drivers are guaranteed an improved grid slot of at least one position with Alpha Tauri's Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat), who qualified 14th, receiving a five-place grid penalty for a gearbox change, but with several drivers summoned to the stewards office post-race, additional gains are a possibility.


Magnussen led the way for the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team duo in Q1 setting the 16th fastest lap of 1:27.158 on his third and final set of Pirelli P Zero Red softs in the session. Grosjean had his best lap of 1:27.317, set on his second set of softs, deleted due to exceeding track limits at turn nine. His final Q1 run netted a 1:27.643 to place 19th overall at the checkered.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "I felt really good in FP3, I was happy with the car, especially with the balance. We made a few changes for qualifying, but the car just didn't behave the same. That's really something we've been suffering with - session-to-session it's not quite the same. It was complicated. We had three attempts in Q1 but none of them were really good. Let's see what we can do tomorrow. We're in England, lots can happen with the weather. It was supposed to rain for qualifying and we've got blue sky. Maybe tomorrow will be the opposite and we can take advantage of it."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "We saw this coming. It was our expectation coming into this race weekend, but we did the job that we could in qualifying ahead of the Alfa Romeos, who are our main competitors. That's all we can do at the moment. There's a bit of a jump to the next group. As long as we make sure we get the most out of qualifying, even though we're a little weak there, that's what we have to focus on - being as high up there as we can. There are a few guys now that might have some penalties, so that might push us a little bit further up the grid. Who knows, that might move us closer to hopefully scoring points again."


Guenther Steiner: "I'm not really happy with the result, but it's not unexpected after the free practices we've had at the circuit. It's just so difficult for us to get out of Q1, that's where we are now. There's nothing else to do than to go through it, and hopefully tomorrow our starting slots will be a bit better once penalties are applied to the grid. We'll try to get the race pace together like we did in Hungary and hopefully we can make something out of it."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67517/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 15th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 20th for the British Grand Prix.



George secured his third consecutive Q2 appearance of the season, clocking a time of 1:27.092 in Q2. Nicholas's quickest of Q1 was his second flying lap, with a time of 1:27.705.


George was given a five-place grid penalty for failing to slow sufficiently for double yellow flags at Turn 7.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The pace of the car today was quite good and confirmed that we did a good job yesterday and overnight. After FP3 both drivers felt that the car had improved since Friday and were looking forward to qualifying. The gusty conditions this afternoon made driving a little difficult and unfortunately Nicholas succumbed to the wind on his final timed lap. The resulting yellow flag forced George to slow down and lose time on a rapidly evolving track. His time was still good enough to qualify for Q2 for the third race in a row, but unfortunately the stewards considered that he did not react appropriately to the yellow flag and consequently has been awarded a five-place grid penalty for tomorrow's race.


Cooler conditions are expected tomorrow, but Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) remains a demanding track for the tyres and a variety of strategies can be expected during the race. We have tried to rebalance our qualifying and race pace this weekend having recently found races a little more difficult than qualifying. We will see tomorrow if we have made progress in this regard.


Whatever happens tomorrow, both drivers did well today with Nicholas quickly adapting to the test items that George looked at yesterday, and George showing strong pace throughout the day. The pace of the car continues to improve and our ability to adapt the set-up from the high downforce demands of Hungary to the high efficiency of Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) bodes well for the rest of the season, especially when we look forward to the next triple-header which begins in Spa (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/19/spa-francorchamps) in a few weeks' time.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67517/drivers/66/george-russell): We have got to be pleased with our performance. It is three races in a row now we have been faster on Saturday and slower on Sunday, and so we tried to set the car up more for Sunday, so I was quite surprised with the performance we had today. The car felt great it was really fun driving around the track. Once we made it to Q2 we always want more, but our realistic goal was to out qualify the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and the Alfa, because the next team, AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri)
were just too far ahead. I was pleased with the job I did, and we will see what happens tomorrow.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): We made a big reset with the car overnight to be more competitive. The car was feeling much better and I had a lot more confidence. I am very disappointed with myself and the mistake I made on my final lap. I got too greedy on the throttle, and just spun the car around. I think if I had actually done the lap, I probably could have done a lap good enough for Q2 that George showed was possible. We had some doubts coming into this weekend about the potential of the car in qualifying relative to how it was in Budapest. So it shows that the gains still carry over to a track like this. There are some positive signs, I am just a bit frustrated from my side of the garage.

British GP: Qualifying team notes - PirelliMany of the drivers started Q2 on the medium tyre, with both Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) drivers, Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)), Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) (Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)) and Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) (Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)) setting their best times on this compound. As a result, they will start the race on the yellow tyre tomorrow.



Today's temperatures were cooler than the extreme heat of yesterday, with track temperatures of around 40 degrees in qualifying. Tomorrow's conditions should be similar to today.


The cars were affected by gusting winds throughout qualifying, which influenced aerodynamic grip.


The track record was already broken by Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) in the early stages of qualifying, before being lowered again twice in Q3 by Hamilton. This year's pole was 1.2 seconds faster than the 2019 pole, on the same tyres.


Racing Point (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/14/racing-point)'s Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) and Alpha Tauri's Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) set exactly the same time in Q2 (albeit on different tyres), but only Stroll went through to Q3 as he set the time first.


The theoretically quickest strategy for the 52-lap British Grand Prix is a one-stopper, assuming that temperatures remain similar to today. The fastest way is to start on the soft tyre for 18 to 22 laps and then move onto the hard until the end.

Second-fastest is a two-stopper, also starting on the soft. After 16 to 18 laps switch to the soft again for another 16 to 18 lap stint, before going onto the medium until the end. The hard tyre can be used as an alternative to the medium: either for the middle or the final stint.


Third-quickest is a different one-stopper: starting on the medium for 21 to 24 laps, then hard to the end. It's not advisable to do a soft-medium one-stopper, as tyre wear then becomes too marginal.


Mario Isola: "With temperatures being quite a lot cooler than they were yesterday, the teams needed to confirm the data collected so far ahead of qualifying, which made FP3 in the morning particularly important. The key point of qualifying was the medium tyre, used by half the top 10 to get through Q2. The top four starters will begin the race on this compound, which isn't the fastest way on paper, but does offer more options and a longer first stint on a circuit that's renowned for taking a lot out of the tyres. The circuit got progressively faster throughout the qualifying session, with a new track record set twice in Q3".

FORMULA 1 PIRELLI BRITISH GRAND PRIX 2020 - Silverstone
CARRERA
Domingo, 2 de agosto de 2020



Lewis HAMILTON se lleva la victoria en Silverstone. Una victoria cómoda hasta el inicio de la última vuelta cuando un pinchazo en la delantera izquierda lo llevó cerca del abandono, convirtiendo entonces su victoria en dramática.

Una vuelta antes, BOTTAS tuvo el mismo problema en el delantero izquierdo, viéndose obligado a pasar por boxes y quedando fuera de los puntos, lo que deja a Hamilton todavía más líder del campeonato.

Y a Carlos SAINZ le pasó exactamente lo mismo que a Bottas y Hamilton cuando estaba haciendo una sólida carrera rodando en 5ª posición. Una lástima.

Tras ver el problema de Bottas, Red Bull decidió parar a VERSTAPPEN para ir a por la vuelta rápida. Y fue una muy mala decisión ya que lo dejó demasiado alejado de Hamilton cuando este pinchó y no pudo arrebatarle la victoria. La próxima vez que tenga una «parada gratis» que le permita intentar la VR al final de la carrera, seguro que se lo pensarán, aunque también pueden pensar que a él le podría haber pasado lo mismo si no hubiese parado.

Charles LECLERC hizo una gran salida teniendo una bonita batalla con Verstappen. Su carrera ha sido muy sólida y los problemas de Bottas le han permitido subirse al podio. Nada que ver su carrera con la de VETTEL, al que se le ha visto cometer varios errores y ha estado rodando gran parte de la carrera fuera de los puntos. Al final ha terminado 10º gracias a los pinchazos de Bottas y Sainz.

Buena carrera también de RICCIARDO, NORRIS y OCON que han terminado en 4ª, 5ª y 6ª posición.

Tras ellos ha finalizado GASLY que ha sabido plantarle cara a Vettel.

ALBON ha tenido un inicio de carrera complicado al tocar y dejar fuera de carrera a MAGNUSSEN en la última curva de la primera vuelta, lo que le ha supuesto una sanción de 5 segundos. Ha tenido que ir toda la carrera remontando y al final ha terminado 8º.

STROLL no ha hecho una buena carrera. En ningún momentoo ha dado sensación de sacarle partido a ese coche y ha ido perdiendo posiciones para finalizar en 9ª posicióon. Lástima los problemas en el coche de HÜLKENBERG que le ha impedido participar. Habría sido más que interesante comparar su rendimiento. En Racing Point no saben todavía qué ha pasado en su coche, han comentado que lo tienen que revisar con tranquilidad.

Final inacreditável em Silverstone, Hamilton ganha com um pneu furado a sua 87ªVitória da carreiraUm GP de Silverstone que teve boas brigas, mas caminhava para uma previsibilidade de resultado acabou na voltas finais, três pilotos sendo vitimas de furo de pneus. Lewis Hamilton conseguiu levar o seu carro com o pneu furado até o final para vencer pela 87ªVitória da carreira. Melhor para o britânico, Valtteri Bottas que foi um duro adversário para Lewis acabou com um pneu furado na 50ªVolta e perdendo um 2ºlugar garantido e acaba ficando com o 11ºlugar (Infelizmente, pois uma belo final de semana do piloto Finlandês).




A prova teria 19 pilotos no Grid, Nico Hulkenberg não pode largar, problemas no seu carro na volta de ida para o grid impediram ele de correr.




Na largada, Bottas tentou superar Hamilton, largou melhor que Lewis, mas o pole conseguiu manter a liderança. Leclerc chegou a superar Verstappen nas primeiras curvas, O piloto da Red Bull recuperou a 3ªposição. Sainz jr. ,Ricciardo e Norris vinham logo atrás do piloto da Ferrari.




Ao completar a primeira volta, Alexander Albon acabou se precipitando ao tentar passar Magnussen e acabou tocando no Dinamarquês que foi para o muro. Pela primeira vez o safety car entrou na pista para a retirada do carro do piloto da Haas.




Na 6ªVolta a corrida recomeça, Hamilton, Bottas e Verstappen disparam na frente, Já Leclerc é pressionado pelo Sainz jr. Um pouco mais longe, Ocon atacava Stroll na disputa pelo 8ºlugar. Já Vettel tentava chegar no piloto francês da Renault, mas era pressionado pelo Pierre Gasly, sofrendo para lutar pela 10ªposição.




Hamilton tinha 1.6 segundos de Bottas e 5 segundos a frente de Verstappen. Depois vinha Leclerc, já muito longe dos 3 primeiros colocados.




Na 12ªVolta, Daniil Kyvat que vinha em um começo de corrida muito forte acabou indo para o muro e batendo violentamente. O que provocou a entrada pela segunda vez do Safety Car. O Acidente do piloto russo foi estranho, o piloto disse que foi culpa dele, mas ainda não estou convencido que isso aconteceu, da forma que foi não descarto que tenha tido alguma quebra.




Com esse Safety Car, todos os pilotos foram fazer a parada, colocando os pneus mais duros, com exceção de Romain Grosjean, que não foi para os boxes e subiu da 17ª para a 5ªposição.




O Safety Car ficou na pista por longas 7 voltas. Na volta 19 a corrida recomeça. Norris na metade da pista passou Stroll e assumiu a 7ªposição. Na volta seguinte, é a vez de Riccardo superar no piloto da Racing Point.




Hamilton, Bottas e Verstappen vinham bem a frente com Leclerc em 4º se aproveitando da lentidão da Haas de Romain Grosjean, que estava arriscando tudo para tentar resistir nas primeiras posições. Na 21ªVolta, Sainz jr. foi para cima do francês que acabou mudando de posição muito em cima da Mclaren. A ultrapassagem aconteceu na volta seguinte, o espanhol subiu para a 5ªposição.




Hamilton e Bottas vinham sobrando na frente e disputando a melhor volta da prova. Os dois vinham separados por menos de 2 segundos. Na volta 26, Norris superou Grosjean e passou para a 6ªposição.




Ocon vai para cima de Stroll, bela briga valendo a 8ªposição ao entrar na segunda metade de prova. Enquanto Bottas tentava se aproximar do Hamilton que vinha 1.5 segundos de distância, Gasly ao ser pressionado por Albon acabou indo para cima e ultrapassando a Antonio Giovinazzi e subindo para a 12ªposição. Se o piloto italiano estava ruim, as coisas para Raikkonen estavam bem piores, o Homem de Gelo foi superado facilmente pelo estreante Nicholas Latifi.




Hamilton e Bottas continuava a trocar melhores voltas na disputa pela liderança. Na volta 37, Grosjean que vinha na 8ªposição foi para os boxes colocar novos pneus e cumprir o regulamento. Albon também foi para os boxes e voltou na 15ªposição. Ao mesmo tempo que Gasly supera Vettel e assume a 10ªposição. Enquanto o piloto da Alpha Tauri vinha crescendo o piloto da Ferrari continuava a ser enterrar no calvário em Silverstone.




Hamilton começou a abrir um pouco mais de vantagem para Bottas, com 2.7 segundos a corrida vinha se encaminhando nas mãos do piloto inglês. Já para o Finlandês vinha com problemas nos pneus, preocupante, mas não parecia que a Mercedes estava disposto a fazer uma parada (lá para o final da prova a equipe Alemã iria ver o erro que ela cometeria).




Depois de muitas voltas de disputa, finalmente Esteban Ocon superou Lance Stroll e subiu para a 8ªposição.




A 4 Voltas do final, Raikkonen quebra sua asa dianteira e deixa detritos pela pista. A partir dai a corrida começaria a mudar, Na volta 50, Valtteri Bottas teve o furo de pneu e acabou perdendo não só a segunda posição como perdeu uma volta inteira para ir aos boxes. Na volta seguinte, Sainz jr. que vinha em uma ótima 5ªposição também teve furo em seu pneu.




Max Verstappen foi para os boxes na penúltima volta para fazer a volta mais rápida da prova e garantir a segunda posição.




Na última volta, Lewis Hamilton fora os pneus e teve de levar com cuidado o pneu até o final da última volta com cuidado para vencer pela 87ªVez na carreira e a 7ªvez em Silverstone. Uma vitória heroica para Lewis, que teve uma enorme sorte no final. Se Verstappen tivesse ficado na pista, teria vencido a prova. O piloto da Red Bull herdou a segunda posição e conseguiu a melhor volta da prova.




O pódio foi completado pelo Monegasco Charles Leclerc, que acabou fazendo um grande final de semana, levando o problemático carro da Ferrari para o segundo pódio da temporada. Por muito pouco não perdeu esse pódio para Daniel Ricciardo da Renault, uma bela corrida do Australiano que poderia ter tido seu jejum de pódios (Desde de Mônaco de 2018 sem pódio) quebrado hoje.




Lando Norris foi o piloto da Mclaren a terminar a corrida com uma boa 5ªposição, permanecendo à frente de Esteban Ocon, na sua melhor corrida até agora com o carro da Renault.

Outra boa corrida de Pierre Gasly que superou Lance Stroll e acabou repetindo a 7ªposição do GP da Áustria, também beneficiado pelos furos de pneus de Bottas e Sainz jr., na frente de Alexander Albon que teve um final de semana ruim, o 8ºlugar não apaga o que faltou de desempenho para o piloto Tailandês. Ainda assim terminando o dia a frente de Lance Stroll, Um dia para esquecer para a Racing Point.


Sebastian Vettel salvou 1 ponto ao segurar Valtteri Bottas nos últimos metros.


http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/SILVERSTONE1_dom_2020-6-1024x613.jpg

Após uma bela corrida, infelizmente Valtteri Bottas acabou com um furo de pneu perdendo uma merecidíssima segunda posição e acabou não conseguindo salvar se quer um ponto. O 11ºlugar leva Bottas a ficar 30 pontos atrás de Hamilton e a apenas 6 pontos de vantagem para Max Verstappen. Um pena mesmo, talvez a Mercedes deveria ter pensado em terem feito uma segunda parada para seus dois pilotos antes dos pneus se deteriorarem. Porém, existe a chance dos pneus de Bottas, Sainz jr. e Hamilton terem tido seus pneus furados por causa dos detritos do carro de Kimi Raikkonen.


http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/SILVERSTONE1_dom_2020-28-1024x683.jpg

George Russell fez uma corrida muito boa, dentro das condições da Williams o 12ºlugar é um bom resultado e também mostra que a equipe de Grove esta evoluindo em relação a Alfa Romeo e a Haas. Carlos Sainz jr. que tinha uma merecida 5ªposição acabou sendo uma das vitimas dos pneus e acabou ficando em 13ºlugar.


Antonio Giovinazzi punido com 5 segundos no final da prova (Por irregularidades no período de Safety Car) acabou em 14ºlugar. Nicholas Latifi teve seu melhor final de semana e dá mostras de evolução, chegando em 15º e ficando a frente de Romain Grosjean da Haas e de Kimi Raikkonen, como o único piloto a tomar volta do vencedor da prova.

Semana que vem teremos a etapa dos 70 anos da Formula 1, no mesmo circuito de Silverstone para a 5ªEtapa do Mundial de 2020. Com Hamilton batendo não só seus adversários, como ele mesmo também… Quem vai parar? Ou nem mesmo a falta de sorte vai parar-lo?

Declaraciones de los equipos después de la carrera:

British GP: Race team notes - MercedesLewis scored the 87th victory of his Formula One career - his third of the 2020 season and seventh at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), breaking the record for most home Grand Prix wins.



Valtteri held P2 for the majority of the race but suffered a puncture with three laps remaining and ultimately crossed the line in 11th place.


Lewis (88 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 30 points from Valtteri (58 points). The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team (146 points) leads Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing (78 points) by 68 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Gilles Pironi, Reliability Engineer, accepted the Constructors' trophy on behalf of the team.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): I have never experienced anything like that before. That last lap was one of the most challenging laps I have ever had. Up until that point, everything was going relatively smoothly, the tyres felt great and I was doing some management. When I heard Valtteri's tyre had gone, I looked at mine and everything seemed fine, but I started to back off. Then, it just suddenly deflated down the straight. It was a heart-in-your-mouth feeling and then I was just trying to keep the speed up without damaging the car. Bono was giving me the gaps; I think it was 30 seconds at one stage, but it was coming down quite quickly and I was thinking 'How far is it to the end of the lap?'. But we managed to get the car across the line. That last lap is definitely one to remember, I feel so grateful that I got it back and could secure the win.

It was difficult standing up there on the podium without the crowd, but hopefully I did everyone proud who was supporting us from home.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): It's a really disappointing result for me. I got very unlucky with the puncture; everything was going OK until that point. I was trying to put the pressure on Lewis, but we knew it was going to be a long stint on the Hard tyre.

Towards the end I was starting to get more and more vibrations on the front left. I didn't see any debris or anything, so I reported the vibrations and started to manage the tyres, but then the tyre failed suddenly on the start/finish straight and I had to complete a full lap back to the pits which cost me a lot of time. I am sure there will be lots of learnings to take from this weekend, so we'll take those and move onto the next weekend.


Toto Wolff: In the past, we have had some scrutiny for saying that having a fast car isn't enough to cruise with a 1-2 finish into the sunset. And today showed how cruel motor racing can be. Valtteri lost a valuable second place for his Drivers' Championship and the team lost valuable points in the Constructors' Championship. At the same time, Lewis had enough of a gap to make it over the finish line in first place, but we were lucky that Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) pitted towards the end - if they hadn't, what looked like a secure 1-2 finish would have ended up a 2-11. Therefore, we will continue to be sceptical, we know we have a fast car and a powerful engine, but we will not take anything for granted until we've crossed the finish line at each race weekend.


Andrew Shovlin: It's very frustrating to lose a car in the final laps and Valtteri will be feeling that more than anyone today. The timing couldn't have been worse as he was just braking for Turn 16, so he had to do the whole lap on three wheels dropping him out of the points at the end. With Lewis we were luckier; after Max decided to take a fresh set and go for fastest lap, Lewis had a lead of over thirty seconds when he got the puncture. Thankfully that was just enough for Lewis to hold on to the win. Despite our frustration at the way the race finished, we can be pleased with how we've worked here. The car had great pace in qualifying and the race and we were able to build gaps to the competition quite quickly today. Next week's race will be a different challenge on softer tyres and in much hotter temperatures. That may not suit us based on what we've seen in the warmer conditions here and in Austria although we're excited by the technical challenge that it creates and will work hard over the next few days to make sure we remain competitive.

British GP: Race team notes - FerrariCharles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) took his and Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s second podium finish of the season, coming home third. The British Grand Prix had few exciting moments at first, but really came to life on the 50th of 52 laps when a series of tyre failures jumbled up the order.



Charles got off the line really well, to the extent that he briefly took third place off Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), but he had to hand it back to the Dutchman at turn 3. Charles then tucked in behind the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), while Sebastian dropped to eleventh. The order did not change, even through two Safety Car periods, the first when Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) went off the track and the second when Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat) crashed. After the AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri) incident, both Scuderia drivers came in to switch to the Hard tyre, Charles having been on the Medium and Sebastian on the Soft. Leclerc could not match the pace of those ahead but he was reasonably comfortable when it came to fending off those behind him, so that he was fourth with three laps remaining. Sebastian, who had struggled with pace all weekend, managed to get ahead of Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) in the pit stops, but at the re-start he again found himself behind the Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault), dropping back once again to eleventh. The German moved into the points when Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) pitted in the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) to changes tyres, but lost a place when Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) managed to pass him.


With three laps remaining, the order at the front was turned on its head: Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) had been second, but he got a puncture which promoted Verstappen to second and Charles to third. The Finn managed to pit and rejoin just behind Vettel, in 12th place. On the final lap, race leader Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) had the same tyre problem. The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) man somehow managed to reach the finish line and win, while the Spanish McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) driver lost a lot of ground, which allowed Vettel back into the points. In the final corner Vettel defended furiously to keep Bottas on new tyres behind him and managed to bring home the final point for tenth place. Charles podium finish was the 12th of his career in Formula 1 (his seventh third place), while it was number 772 for the Scuderia.


For the second time this season, in which the World Championship celebrates a landmark year, the F1 circus stays at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) for another race in the blue riband series, the 70th Anniversary Formula 1 Grand Prix. It's an appropriate venue, given that it was here at this track, on 13 May 1950 that the very first race to count for the world championship in this fantastic sport took place.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): "It was a difficult day, but a good one. I am very satisfied with this result. We know we were a bit lucky, but sometimes these things happen and you need to be there to take the opportunity. I am satisfied with the way in which we have been working this weekend and I am very proud of the team. I am also pleased with my performance, especially with regards to tyre management. It was not easy.


"We had a very aggressive downforce level coming here, so we had quite a lot of speed in the straights but difficulties in the corners. I struggled quite a bit to get the tyres to the right temperature, especially after the safety car. Once they were in the right window, things became less tricky though. I think we did quite a good job with the setup and the balance of the car, and it was very nice to drive.


"We extracted absolutely everything from the package today. Of course, we don't want to be fighting for fourth place for too much longer, but at the moment that's what our car is capable of."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "That was a very difficult race, because I couldn't challenge anyone. Many of those behind me were a bit faster and managed to get past, as I was struggling massively to find grip in this car, even though I tried lots of different things this weekend.


I didn't have the required pace and so my confidence level is quite low at the moment, because I'm struggling to get a feel for the car and every time I try and push, I lose the car. I think we need to have a look at this problem together with the engineers."


Mattia Binotto Team Principal: "Mixed fortunes today. On the plus side is Charles' podium finish. After a good qualifying yesterday, he was perfect in the race, doing an impeccable job of managing the tyres. On the minus side, is Sebastian's result. Again today, he was clearly not happy with his car: we have to study the data closely to work out why.


"We had prepared carefully for this weekend, going for a lower than usual aerodynamic downforce configuration, based on simulation work and development in the wind tunnel and it paid off. We also worked a lot on tyre management, which was a critical factor in this race, as can be seen from the last few laps. Charles did a good job, patiently listening to the engineers, saving the tyres for the entire race.


"Today, at least with one car, we got everything out of the package we have, even though it's a long way off our target. Now we are focussing on next weekend, when we race again on the same track. We will prepare well and try as hard as possible to bring home even more points than today."

British GP: Race team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I know everyone is asking whether we should not have pitted for the soft tyre because we could have won but could have, would have, should have. You can always ask these questions with hindsight but I don't regret anything and I believe we made the right decision to pit for fastest lap at the end. We did the right thing and who knows if I would also have got a puncture, you just can't predict these things as it does not happen very often in F1 these days.

At the end of the day Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) deserved to win as they were faster than us, some people are saying Lewis was lucky but he was actually unlucky to get the puncture in the first place and so was Bottas. I'm happy to finish second as it looked like third was all that was possible and again we have scored good points. I was four or five tenths off Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) every lap but a second faster than the cars behind, so it was a pretty lonely race. At one point I went on the radio telling my engineer to remember to stay hydrated. (laughs) Other than that I was just counting sheep! Next week will be slightly different with the tyre choice affecting the strategy and although we are realistic about the pace of the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) compared to us we won't stop pushing them like we did today."



Alex Albon: "Eighth isn't what I want but it's damage limitation after the damage to the car and penalty at the start of the race. I think the incident with Kevin was 50/50, he made a mistake and left a gap so I went for the move. When I realised he didn't see me and he closed the door I tried to get out of the way but we touched. There was a big difference of speed going into the corner and it couldn't be avoided. We had a lot of work to do this weekend but we did the best we could and the race pace was okay fighting back through the field. I'm happy we've got another race here at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) next weekend as I love this track and we can use what we've learned this week and put it into practice."


Christian Horner: "You could say we were a little unlucky to miss out on the victory today but congratulations to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) who have a very dominant car and it would have been a lucky win. Lewis' luck is with him at the moment but second place and fastest lap for Max is still a very good result for the Team after the gap to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) in qualifying yesterday. Max drove a really mature race, he got everything out of the car and made no mistakes - he was even looking out for his engineers and reminding them to have a drink on the pit wall whilst setting green sectors! Towards the end of the race Max's tyres weren't in great shape, so when Bottas had his puncture there was no guarantee Max would have got to the end of the race so it was wise to pit for new rubber.


"I think we have to be grateful to have benefitted from Valtteri's misfortune and we can be happy with this result. Alex also drove a great race and to recover and finish eighth with some great passes, after contact and the resulting penalty put him at the back of the field. I think his collision with Magnussen was a racing incident - Kevin made a mistake and went wide so Alex committed and they touched but the five second penalty was probably fair. From Hungary to here I think we are making progress as a Team and today shows anything can happen in the race, so we must keep pushing and applying the pressure to those in front."

British GP: Race team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A decent race. I made a bit of a mistake by pushing too hard on the first lap of the race. I locked-up and lost a position, but the rest of the race was pretty good. I don't think we had the fastest car on track compared to the teams around us. We were suffering a little bit with the tyre degradation, having to push more than I wanted for the majority but, apart from that, we were on for a good result. Carlos got unlucky with the puncture. I don't think we could've done a lot more."



Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): "I'm a bit lost for words to be honest - I think the images spoke for themselves. It's a very frustrating end to an otherwise very strong race. I had a great start gaining a couple of positions and solid pace throughout the whole race, managing the tyres and the gap to the cars behind. Everything was working well, we were on for a very strong P4 and 12 points, but then the tyre failed and I had to box on the last lap. Very disappointing, frustrating and unfortunate. Nothing we could do about it though.


"I've lost some important points in these first four races, so I really look forward to this run of bad luck turning around. With a shorter championship, losing these points hurts more than normal, but we need to carry on.


"On the positive side, the car felt good on track and the boys did good pit-stops for the team - that's why I also feel so bad for them. Tomorrow, we'll switch our focus to the second round here at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) next week to try to capitalise on our good pace."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Right now, I feel sorry for Carlos - he had very bad luck after a strong drive. To lose many good points one lap before the end with a puncture leaves the whole team very disappointed. Nevertheless, this is racing, and this is what happens. Both drivers have again put in good performances, again we had a competitive car and we still scored some important points in the Constructors' Championship with Lando finishing in P5. The crew did great work with three very good pit-stops, and the strategy team made all the right calls in pressured situations when the Safety Car came out.


"We have completed four races now and both drivers have seen the chequered flag every time, without any reliability issues for either the car or the power unit. Massive thanks to the entire team at the track and back home, and also Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) for all of their hard work and effort.


"It's a shame to not have our fans, partners and other members of team here for our home race, but we value their incredible support despite being unable to be at the track with us. The entire race team can take a short break now, before coming back to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) later this week to do it all over again."

British GP: Race team notes - RenaultRenault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) DP World F1 Team finished a sensational Pirelli British Grand Prix with Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo) fourth and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) sixth after a thrilling final few laps at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone).



With the race drawing to a close, the team was set for a good haul of points with Daniel occupying sixth and Esteban eighth. But debris left on the track in sector two meant Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) picked up punctures allowing both drivers to gain places. Daniel further benefitted after overtaking Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris) just before the incidents, before finishing just 1.1seconds from a podium place.


The result matches Daniel's best finish in Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) colours - fourth in the 2019 Italian Grand Prix - with Esteban claiming his best effort in Formula 1 since the 2018 Italian Grand Prix.


After a lightning start, Daniel gained two positions on the opening lap, progressing from eighth to sixth. Esteban was also out the blocks quickly - side by side with Daniel into the opening two corners - before maintaining ninth place by the end of the first lap.


After an early safety car, both drivers remained out on Soft tyres. A second safety car on lap 12 allowed the team to double stack both cars with Daniel first in for Hards and Esteban immediately following suit for the same compound, with minimal time lost courtesy of a slick change from the pit crew.


The midfield fight from fifth through to tenth was tight throughout with Daniel and Esteban showing solid race pace and looking set for a solid points haul.


Esteban managed to make his move on Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) for eighth before benefitting from Bottas and Sainz's punctures with Daniel diving for a late move on Norris to snatch fourth.


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "It was a crazy race at the end, and it feels really cool to take fourth place. We made a good start, jumped up to sixth and we showed decent pace. At the safety car restart I was close to Carlos [Sainz] but didn't have enough and that allowed Lando [Norris] to have a run on me and I missed out there. That was a bit frustrating, but it came back to us at the end. The race really came alive and that was really good. We had some pace at the end and I was able to get Lando and then Carlos had a problem. I saw Charles [Leclerc] getting closer and maybe with a couple more laps we could have had a podium! We have another chance next week. We were assisted by some chaos, but we were definitely a top six car today and that's pleasing."


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "I'm very happy with today's team result. It was very fun out there, lots of overtaking, lots of fun battles and a fantastic result to finish it off. I think today shows how quick our car is in the race. It really felt awesome today and it was a strong performance from the team. It's a credit to everyone at Enstone and Viry for their hard work between Budapest and this race. We had a lot of discussions, and that's really paid off today. It proves that we need to qualify further up to make our life easier on Sunday. We have another opportunity next week for more."


Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal: "It was a very good result from a team perspective and one of our strongest since our return to Formula 1. It is particularly good here in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), a temple of the Formula 1 championship and one of the home races for the team. Clearly, there was a bit of help towards the end to gain positions, but that should not take away from the very strong performance that the team has put in throughout the weekend. We had a decent Friday practice and that meant both good preparation for qualifying with both cars in the top ten as well as critical learning about making the Hard tyre last in the race. Today, both drivers had a strong opening lap to have track position and then we decided to stop both cars for Hards under the safety car, which the pit crew did an excellent job on. We also had strong reliability and that's so important when we have eventful races like this one. After tracks where the car struggled, Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone)'s layout confirmed the strengths and weaknesses of the car. In particular we must keep working on high-speed corners as that's our weakness compared to direct rivals. We have made progress but we should not lose sight of our direct competitors nor of the competitiveness level of Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) in all circumstances."

British GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "It's really fantastic for us to finish P7 today! It was a very strong race and probably one of the best ones from me. We didn't expect such a result today, we knew we could potentially score points, but it was going to be a challenge as the timing of the first safety car didn't play into our hands. I think we were P12 at the time and I had to fight my way through the crowd. It was tough but very enjoyable and I had many great battles with Vettel, Stroll and Giovinazzi. I struggled to get close to Sebastian, but then I had one shot to pass him and I knew I had to try and make it work. It doesn't happen every day that you're able to overtake a Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) on the outside, so I really enjoyed that one! I'm feeling good in the car and we know where we need to improve, so hopefully we can take another step forward in the coming weeks."



Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat): "I think it was a very strong race despite the fact it was cut short. I had a good start, great pace and made quite a few overtakes, catching up to the cars in front. We were on for a good result today when all of a sudden at Turn 10 I lost the rear of the car.


"I thought it was my fault, as at first I always tend to blame myself, but after reviewing the video we saw that something happened out of my control, so we will need to check all the data to understand what exactly caused the failure. It's disappointing as we could have scored some good points here today, but I will try again next week."


Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "Today's race has certainly been exciting with the closing stages providing lots of drama. Pierre had a fantastic race making several good passes, managing his pace and tyres very well in order to be able to push hard when it really mattered. Dany was also showing some good pace up until lap 12, so although he has not been able to score points today, we are confident he can bounce back next week. Today's performance has further validated the updates we have brought here are delivering, now we will spend the next few days reviewing the data to be able to extract some more from our package next week. The entire team worked fantastically today, and we achieved a result worthy of the hard work put in by everyone here and back in Faenza & Bicester."


Franz Tost (Team Principal): "We came to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) with a few new parts and we were quite optimistic. From the very beginning of the weekend, we were able to show a good performance throughout all Free Practice sessions. For whatever reason, we couldn't put everything together in Qualifying, even if Pierre's 11th position on the grid, with a free tyre choice, was actually quite fortunate. Pierre had a fantastic race, overtaking many cars and we decided to call him to the pits during the safety car period - unfortunately the one due to Daniil's accident - to put him on base tyres, which paid off quite well. His seventh position at the end of the race brought some good points to the team. Daniil started the race from the back in P19, due to a 5-place grid position penalty, but he had a good start and was immediately very competitive, catching up to Pierre in P12. He was actually behind him when he had his accident at Maggotts, which we will need to investigate but it looks like it might be due to a rear puncture. However, the most important thing is that he got out of the car without injuries and he is completely fine. It's a real shame as he was showing great pace and I think he might have also finished in the points. We are now looking forward to next week for the second race in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone)."

British GP: Race team notes - Racing PointLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "We were able to keep up our run of scoring points in every race this season, but I'm disappointed to only finish in P9 and we need to go away and look into the reasons why. The balance of the car was better today and I expected us to be more competitive, but we slipped back in the race. It wasn't our day today, so now we need to focus on next weekend and make sure we come back stronger and show what the car is capable of. It's a shame Nico couldn't start the race because he's done a good job this weekend."



Nico Hulkenberg (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/10/nico-hulkenberg): "It's a real shame that I couldn't start the race and I feel for the team because they did everything to get me onto the grid. I'm very thankful to everyone for their help. It's been a jump into the deep end this weekend, but I've enjoyed the opportunity to work with the team again. It would have been great to score a good result in the race as a reward for all our hard work."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "A tough afternoon - starting with a power unit or gearbox issue, which meant Nico didn't even make the start of the race. The first indication of a problem was when we tried to fire up the car to go to the grid. There was basically a drivetrain seizure, the cause of which is still being investigated. It's a shame for the entire team after such a huge effort to get Nico in the car. With Lance, we were especially unlucky with the timing of the safety car, which also ruled out any strategic benefit of starting on the medium tyres. After that, we were stuck in the train of cars and struggled with our race pace - certainly compared to the long runs we did on Friday. We need to understand where we lost out today so we can be stronger next week."

British GP: Race team notes - Alfa RomeoThe historic Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) venue produced an event that can be best described as chaotic as safety cars, on-track incidents and a spate of tyre blowouts turned the race upside down. In the end, we took the chequered flag with Antonio and Kimi in P12 and P17 respectively, before the Italian saw five seconds added to his race time, demoting him to 14th.



It was a race that had started positively, with Antonio gaining three places at the start and both cars looking geared for a fight for the top ten: before the second safety car made an appearance, we were showing good pace, keeping up with the Renaults and Ferraris. All that promise, however, turned into little to show for our efforts after the round of pit-stops: once back on track, both cars struggled for pace, eventually losing contact with the point-scoring pack and being unable to capitalise on the tyre issues that affected many competitors in the closing stages.


It was a day of hard lessons, lessons we need to learn - especially more so as we get back to racing on this very track in less than a week's time. Same venue, same cars - we'll need to make a step forward to make sure we improve on the final result


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It was a disappointing Sunday. We looked good in the opening stages, climbing up to P12, just behind Ocon and Vettel and showing good pace. We were looking on course for a good result until the stops, but in the end we weren't able to make any more progress once we switched to hard tyres. With one more race here in Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), we will need to comb through the data and find the best way to improve our performance for next week."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "Not the race we expected, by all means. At the beginning of the race I thought we would have a chance to fight, but after the stops our pace was not enough to keep up with the others. We'll need to see how to improve our performance for next week's race. In the final laps, I had a front wing failure, but that made no difference in the end. I am not sure what happened, we'll need to look into that."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It's been quite a difficult race but I think we did the most we could. I had a good start and made up a few places, gained another place with a very good pit-stop by the crew but after the second safety car I struggled with pace - and a five-second penalty meant I lost two more places at the end. We hoped to be a bit more competitive, so we will need to look at the data and improve what we can to make a step forward when we race here again next week."

British GP: Race team notes - HaasHaas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team driver Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean) finished P16 while Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen) was unable to reach the finish of Formula
One's British Grand Prix, held at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) on Sunday.



Grosjean started from P17 on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tires and rose to P14 on the opening lap. When the Safety Car emerged following Daniil Kvyat (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/32/daniil-kvyat)'s high-speed accident Grosjean stayed out, deviating from the rest of the field, rising to P5 - opting to gamble on an offset strategy. It left Grosjean vulnerable to opponents on fresher tires and he defended resiliently, remaining inside the top 10, before pitting on lap 37 for hard tires. Grosjean made up ground but was unfortunately unable to make significant gains and greeted the checkered flag P16.


Magnussen made a customary strong start from P14 on the grid on the medium tires and worked his way up to P12 through the course of the opening lap. But as he rounded Club corner to close out that lap he was tagged by Alexander Albon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/67/alexander-albon) and pitched into the barriers on the outside of the turn. Magnussen's Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) VF-20 sustained terminal damage in the impact though fortunately the Dane was able to walk away unscathed from the wreckage. Magnussen was exonerated of guilt as stewards issued Albon with a time penalty for causing a collision.


Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team remains P9 in the Constructors' Championship with one point. Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team will be back in action for the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, to be held at Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone), from August 7 to 9.


Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean): "It's disappointing, the result, as I drove to the absolute limit from the beginning to the end of the race. The first stint was fun. I found myself up in fifth behind the safety car and I was like 'oh, just like the good old days.' I was happy to stay out, we have to try these things with our car - just like we did in Hungary. I was a bit skeptical for the restart on the tires, but it worked well, and I could keep the pace. I was happy and having fun. I don't think much is going to change for next week, I think the order will stay the same, but obviously there'll be a bit more degradation in the race - so maybe it's a two-stop race, which I'd rather have, a one-stop is a bit boring."


Kevin Magnussen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/33/kevin-magnussen): "I'm all good after the accident, just very frustrated. I had made a great start - again, gained a couple of positions. I'd felt that the car was good on the way to the grid and I said to my engineers that the car was working really well. I'm gutted to be out as maybe we could have done something today. We had done everything we could do. We'd qualified as best as we could, then I got a great start - it was a good first lap with the positions gained, we were close to the top 10. It was looking good, I'm very gutted."


Guenther Steiner: "I would say it was an interesting day. As much as the disappointment is high, the positives we take out of it is that the drivers like the car, they like how it drives - we just need to get faster with it. Romain (Grosjean), once he was in the mix, he could almost keep up with the other cars and in some cases, he was faster - so that's a good sign. Unfortunately, on his pit-stop, he couldn't engage the gear and we lost 10 seconds. That took us out of the chance of scoring a point, I'm saying one point - not plural. Kevin (Magnussen) was taken out on lap one, so there's not much more to say on that one. It's our destiny at the moment that we don't have any luck. The good we take away from here is that when we are in the mix in the race, we can be there. We still have to work on qualifying. So, it was an interesting race. We didn't end up with a point, but everyone's doing a good job, working hard, and sooner or later we'll score again."

Nicholas started the race 18th, and George 20th, both on the medium Pirelli tyre.



Both drivers ran a one-stop race, taking the opportunity to make their stops for the hard Pirelli tyre during the second Safety Car period on lap 12.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) delivered another exciting race and whilst the safety cars bunched the field up, we can be reasonably pleased with our pace and the result. We now have a good baseline to use for some further tests next week when we return to Silverstone (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/17/silverstone) for the fifth race of the season.


Both drivers drove well today and, with the help of the experts in the garage, were able to manage their tyres to the end of the race whilst also dealing with the gusty conditions. There is still a lot of opportunity to push the car harder, but we are making good progress and will continue to do so next week.


As usual, the pit crew did a great job and the double stop that they were able to complete during the second safety car period helped us gain some valuable track position with both cars.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/67527/drivers/66/george-russell): This was the first race where we have been pretty fast, and our Sunday pace matched our Saturday, so that is positive. We have put a lot of effort in to focus on our pace today, so we are going in the right direction. After the Safety Car, the car felt strong. I managed to overtake Kimi (Raikkonen) and I caught Antonio (Giovinazzi). If we can maintain a good qualifying position ahead of the Alfa Romeos and the Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas)' there's no reason we can't stay there on merit on a Sunday.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I think out of all the first four races so far, this was the race where in duration the car felt the best and the most predictable. The car felt alive and it was really nice to drive. In the first lap I made a mistake and went off and lost the track position, but besides that I had a lot of confidence to push. It was quite an enjoyable race, as it is much nicer when you are in the fight with other cars.

British GP: Race team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) dominated the race from pole with a one-stop strategy, switching from medium to hard tyres under the safety car on lap 13. His front-left tyre went down on the final lap, for reasons that are still being investigated, but he still managed to win the race.



His team mate Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) and McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren)'s Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) also had tyre-related issues on the penultimate and final laps respectively.


Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) eventually finished second, having made a second stop at the end of the race to switch to the soft and claim the extra championship point for fastest lap.


Temperatures were similar to yesterday, with around 40 degrees of track temperature, following an exceptionally hot Friday.


The only driver not to stop during the safety car was Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) driver Romain Grosjean (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/7/romain-grosjean), who stayed out on his original set of medium tyres to gain track position. After 36 laps, he switched to the hard.


Mario Isola: "We'll of course be investigating exactly what happened to the tyres on the two Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) cars as well as that on the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) of Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) in the final two laps of the race.


"What we already know for sure is that the tyres involved in these failures were extremely well-used, with nearly 40 laps of running; albeit some behind the safety car. The race was very much influenced by the safety car, with the second one prompting a pit stop for nearly everyone, leading to a very long second stint. After a complete analysis we will be able to understand fully what happened, which will obviously be very valuable information for next weekend."

Algunas de las conversaciones por radio más destacadas de la carrera:


Jeje, en las palabras de Kimi se notaba el enfado. Que pena el bajón de los equipos "Ferrari" y verle tan relegado atrás, aunque su compañero hizo una carrera muy sólida.

Me han hecho gracia las quejas sobre Grosjean, menudo gañan. Pues no le advierten de que no haga lo mismo que ha hecho a Sainz y tarda dos minutos en hacerlo con Ricciardo, es que encima en las repeticiones se ve claramente como se tira mientras mira el espejo, lo hace 100% aposta.

Otro que sigue sumando carreras MUY buenas es Gasly, hay que admitirlo, el tio se sale, y el resultado del Domingo fué buenisimo, con un par de adelantamientos brutales. Al contrario que Albon que no acaba de despegar, curiosa situación que es la misma pero a la inversa del año pasado. Se está ganando volver a subir "a primera".

Según Pirelli, el problema con el neumático de Kvyat fue debido a un fallo mecánico que sobrecalentó la llanta. Ellos no tuvieron culpa de nada de nada.


Pirelli Motorsport @pirellisport (https://twitter.com/pirellisport) · 14h (https://twitter.com/pirellisport/status/1291412627030253569)

Statement on Kvyat incident, British GP: a mechanical issue led to the inside of the wheel rim overheating, burning the bead of the tyre. So the bead was no longer able to seal the tyre onto the rim. This caused the deflation, with the tyre itself playing no part in the cause.
