Silverstone es una pista rápida, pero también muy compleja y con una superficie bastante 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 Aston Martin, Alpine, McLaren, Mercedes, Red Bull y Williams, por lo que muchos corren "en casa".

Silverstone repitió GP el pasado año 2020, debido a la falta de pistas en las que poder albergar eventos de GP por la pandemia de covid19. El primer evento fué el propio GP de Gran Bretaña, y al segundo se le denominó GP del 70º Aniversario de la F1.

Previas de algunos equipos:

British GP: Preview - Haas

Formula 1 is coming home for one of the staple fixtures on the calendar, the British Grand Prix, held at Silverstone Circuit, marking Round 10 of the 2021 season.

Formula 1 now travels all around the world but a converted airfield in rural Britain is where it all began back on May 13, 1950. Attended by King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the British Grand Prix marked the start of the Formula 1 World Championship, spawning legends, and creating heroes. Over seven decades and 1,000 grands prix have since passed but Silverstone remains the spiritual home of Formula 1, with eight of the 10 teams having operations set up in the country, including Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team.


The fast and flowing layout provides a spectacular challenge for teams and drivers alike, with iconic corners such as Abbey, Copse and Maggotts/Becketts taken at phenomenal speed, while the venue frequently lends itself to close side-by-side competition in race trim. And, in one of the biggest shake-ups to the format in Formula 1's 71-year existence, drivers will have two opportunities to race across successive days.


The British Grand Prix will mark the first of three appearances in 2021 for the Sprint Qualifying trial. A sprint, of 100km length, will take place on Saturday afternoon and the outcome of that will determine the grid for Sunday's usual grand prix. The grid for Sprint Qualifying will be set by the tried-and-tested three-part qualifying session, the scheduling of which has been moved from Saturday to Friday evening. As part of the changes only two practice sessions, one apiece on Friday and Saturday, will take place.


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team rookies Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) and Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) both have race-winning experience of Silverstone from their junior careers. Mazepin stormed to his maiden Formula 2 victory at the circuit last August while Schumacher scored a win at Silverstone during his title-winning European Formula 3 campaign in 2018.


The Austrian Grand Prix saw driving standards, and rules and penalties, very much debated in the aftermath of the race. Do you think drivers need clearer guidelines or should they be allowed to get on and race?

Guenther Steiner: "I don't think we need clearer guidelines; I think we need consistency and I'm always in favor of letting people get on and race. Some of the decisions taken, I don't fully agree with but so it will be."


You've spoken in the past about Formula 1's need to give things a go in the interests of the sport to see if they work - which includes this weekend's Sprint event on Saturday. Are you excited to see how it plays out at Silverstone and how will you define the success of the Sprint format?

GS: "I am looking forward to it because it's something new and something new always gives opportunity and hopefully we can be a part of that. I think the success will be if the fans like it. At the moment I think it's a good format but if there's something we can enhance, and the fans embrace it, that would be good and then I would say let's do more of it."


Just how hard do you think drivers will push in the Sprint to secure a higher grid position for Sunday's race and what's the briefing to Nikita and Mick - play it conservatively, knowing the limitations of the VF-21, or push regardless to see what gains can be made and what opportunities might present themselves?

GS: "I think for sure the drivers will race hard because in qualifying everyone races hard and this is like a sprint race which defines the qualifying positions. On Sunday, when points are at stake, you want to be in the best position to start the race as you can. From our side, this year it's all about learning so running the race, having a few more race starts during the year because of sprint qualifying format will be an advantage next year. On the sprint, I will tell them to keep their noses clean and keep the cars on the track."


With the recent cancellation of the Australian Grand Prix, and the need for a fluid approach to the calendar in the second half of 2021, what impact does that have on a team in terms of logistics and forward-planning?

GS: "With the Australian Grand Prix cancelled this early, it doesn't have any real impact. Obviously, it has an impact on the budget, it could be beneficial or not, but we will find that out later on in the season. At the moment, on what people are doing, it has no impact because nothing was commissioned yet. Now we are waiting anxiously to find out what will replace Australia."


With the mandatory summer shutdown looming in two races time, has the ability to have a relatively normal first half of the season impressed you, and just how significant is the break in allowing team personnel - both at track and in the factory, an opportunity to recharge?

GS: "It's been a relatively normal first half of the season and with already one triple-header - people can feel the strain of it. We all look forward to the shutdown in August which is not far away - just two more races to go. We also know after the shutdown, we will have a very tough second half of the season, with quite a few triple-headers so I hope everyone takes some rest over the summer and comes back recharged because we need it."


We're back racing after a week away, following your first triple-header in Formula 1. Can you share how that's affected you mentally and physically - if at all - and if there were any surprises to what you were expecting as well as what your main takeaways have been?

Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "Back to backs in Formula 1 are quite different to Formula 2. It was nice to get to experience that quite early on in my career here. When you're racing in Formula 1 - you don't arrive and drive from Thursday and leave on Sunday. You have debriefs - pre-event and post-event - during the weekend. That makes the week itself quite intense because you don't disconnect from racing, however I'm fortunate to like what I do. I feel it's making me stronger with every race that comes."


We head to Silverstone, a track you won at last season in Formula 2 in the feature race. What do you like about this circuit and how does it feel racing around a track with such motorsport heritage?

NM: "Silverstone is a very nice circuit because it has a combination of everything you would ever want on a race track - slow speed, high speed and also overtaking opportunities. At the same time, it's sort of my home race for Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and I'm looking forward to doing my best there."


It has been confirmed that a full capacity crowd will be in attendance for the British Grand Prix - with up to 140,000 fans in the grandstands each day. You haven't raced in front of such a large audience before in your Formula 1 career to date. What do fans bring to live events - and do you think it will add to the atmosphere and provide an added boost or increase expectations?

NM: "I can only imagine what racing in front of 140,000 fans in Formula 1 can be! I'm really looking forward to getting out there and feel the emotion and atmosphere on a race track like Silverstone."


The British Grand Prix will also debut the Sprint Qualifying format - a 100km race to the checkered flag which will determine the grid for Sunday's race. Will you approach the weekend differently and do you expect it to shake the grid up?

NM: "I'm not sure what to expect from the Sprint Qualifying format. I think Formula 1 has kept the same format for quite a few years and it will be nice to get a new format to try out at Silverstone. I think with the current tires you need to plan the amount of laps you're going to be doing on them. Hopefully we can push flat out for the whole time as normally we do not get to do that. Potentially, every lap will be like a qualifying lap for that short period of time."


Over the last few races, it looks like you've been gaining confidence in the car, which has been reflected with faster lap times. Is this the result of steady learning and working with the team, or has something clicked between car and driver?

NM: "It's a gradual process of being complete with the car and the team, which hopefully won't stop this year, and will not stop next year because regardless of the amount of laps you do, you learn something else. It's learning how to drive a car that I'm not very comfortable in but still maximizing the package that I've got."

We're back racing after a week away, following your first triple-header in Formula 1. Can you share how that's affected you mentally and physically - if at all - and if there were any surprises to what you were expecting as well as what your main takeaways have been?

Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "Mentally and physically I feel great. I was really happy about the triple-header - it's been great getting to spend so much time with the team. We've played football, gone cycling and had a BBQ together. We've been getting to do all the things which I would usually be able to do if we hadn't had COVID. With the pandemic, it's very restricted how I can get to England, so I've got to spend the time I would usually do, here, and that's been great for us."


We head to Silverstone, a track you have won at previously in 2018 with Formula 3, and narrowly missed out winning at last year in the sprint race to fellow F1 rookie, Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda). What do you like about this circuit and how does it feel racing around a track with such motorsport heritage?

MS: "Silverstone in general is a very interesting track. There's lots of high-speed places but also it's a very technical track with the last chicane, so racing is very difficult. We have long corners which makes it difficult to follow, but I've always enjoyed going to Silverstone. The fans are great but also the track and the history of it is amazing, so I'm really looking forward to it."


It has been confirmed that a full capacity crowd will be in attendance for the British Grand Prix - with up to 140,000 fans in the grandstands each day. You haven't raced in front of such a large audience before in your Formula 1 career to date. What do fans bring to live events - and do you think it will add to the atmosphere and provide an added boost or increase expectations?

MS: "It's going to be great to race in front of so many fans. It will be the first time for me to be in the main event, so to speak. I remember the first time I drove in front of such a big crowd, it was at Spa in 2017 - when I drove a lap in the Benetton B194 - and that was quite crazy so I can't imagine how it's going to be, but I'm definitely looking forward to it."


The British Grand Prix will also debut the Sprint Qualifying format - a 100km race to the checkered flag which will determine the grid for Sunday's race. Will you approach the weekend differently and do you expect it to shake the grid up?

MS: "I think that with the new qualifying format, we will definitely need to approach the weekend differently. We only have one free practice session to set-up the car how we want it to be for the whole weekend. In FP2 we will try and learn something for the main event, but it will definitely be very different, it's going to be interesting."


You're coming off a string of solid races - your highest race finish of 13th in Baku, a Q2 appearance at Paul Ricard, and showing strong race pace in Austria. Is this the result of steady learning and working with the team, or has something clicked between car and driver?

MS: "We've had a few very good qualifying sessions and races at the past few events. I think it's down to us working as a team really well together and understanding the car better. It's really the work we've put in these last weeks and months that has brought us to this place, and also a bit of luck in some places like Baku."

British GP: Preview - AlphaTauri

Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Reflecting on the triple-header, Qualifying went well at all three races and I managed to get into Q3 every time. So, Saturday's performances were always excellent and I particularly enjoyed having a good race in France in front of a home crowd. The second race in Austria also ended well, even if it hadn't been easy, so we were always in the game. On the downside, the first Austrian race ended immediately for me, but overall we're doing a good job as a team, the car is working well and everything seems to be going in the right direction, so I hope that will continue at Silverstone.

"The biggest change this weekend will be the race on Saturday, which means we only get one free practice session to set up the car before Qualifying. That's a major change, so it will be even more important than usual to be very well prepared before going out on track for the first time. We will need to have a good baseline in terms of car set-up right from the start. The new format means how the car works in race trim takes on greater importance and we know this is where, maybe, we have a bit more work to do compared to how the car has been performing in Qualifying. I think generally that is because we over-perform in Qualifying, doing better than some other teams that struggle a bit with Quali and then, in the race, we are more or less where we ought to be. But overall, it should be fine, because we saw in Austria, running a different strategy, we finished four or five seconds off the top five. So, even if we have a bit more work to do for the race, we are nevertheless in the mix, which is definitely positive. We've worked a lot with the engineers, and I've been in the simulator, looking at all the possible scenarios for the new format with the Sprint Qualifying race. It should be good fun. We've also got new tyres from Pirelli. It's been done mainly for safety and from what I experienced, trying them in Austria, I think they will feel pretty similar.


"I love Silverstone, it's one of my favourite tracks, especially the run through Maggots and Becketts, which is one of the most exciting sequences of the season. Although overtaking is meant to be difficult at Silverstone, it is possible and I managed some good passes last year, having some enjoyable fights including passing Seb (Vettel) round the outside at the right hander before the chicane.


"I enjoyed racing in front of the fans in Austria and for Silverstone they're announcing a full capacity crowd, the atmosphere should be great and I'm looking forward to it."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "Looking back at the triple-header in France and Austria, there were some negatives but also some positives. The negatives were obviously a big mistake in Qualifying in France and then in Austria, crossing the pit lane entry white line. I'd say the biggest positive was that from the first week in Austria, I changed my approach to the whole race week. Up until then, I tended to always push as soon as I felt confident or just after making a change to the car set-up. That approach had worked for me in the other formulas up to Formula 2, but it doesn't work, or at least it involves a lot of risk when you try it in Formula 1. I realised that and changed to moving forward step by step, building up my confidence during the race week through free practice, up until Qualifying and from then on I try to push. That worked well and I also changed the way I worked with the engineers in meetings and how I warmed up before getting in the car. It was a step forward and we found a lot of good ways to work from now on. In Qualifying for the second Austrian race, I got my best result of the year and the way I managed getting through the three sessions was really good, especially as I had lost a bit of confidence after I had a big snap in the car in FP3. So, I was pleased with that.


"After the last race, I got some more track time, testing the Pirelli tyres at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring and as a rookie, the more time you get in the car, the better it is. It was interesting work. Now we come to Silverstone and I have good memories from last year, when I came third in the Formula 2 Feature Race and, like the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring, it is a track that I have driven at quite a lot, going back to when I was in F3.

That's all positive, but the downside at Silverstone, given I have never driven a Formula 1 car there before, is that we only have one free practice session before Qualifying, as this weekend we try the Sprint Qualifying Race on Saturday. It means that the new approach I started to use in Austria will not work so well this time. I expect that having to perform well in Qualifying immediately after FP1 is going to be tough. It will be quite difficult, but I will still try and speed up step-by-step again, like in Austria. But the sprint race is something new for everyone. We must also think that we can make set-up changes between FP1 and Qualifying, but after that we can't really change anything. I think it is going to be quite a challenging week for everyone, but I will just focus on myself and on being as well prepared as possible.


"I am looking forward to experiencing Silverstone in a Formula 1 car, with all its high speed corners and although, as I said, the lack of free practice is going to be a challenge, I am feeling fairly confident about the weekend as I have some experience of the track from previous years, so let's see what happens. I am particularly looking forward to seeing what the Maggots-Becketts- Chapel corners are like in an F1 car."

(https://www.pitpass.com/70247/British-GP-Preview-AlphaTauri)British GP: Preview - Aston MartinSebastian: "I'm looking forward to racing at Silverstone again. There's a lot of high-speed sections at this circuit with good places for overtaking, so I think there will be opportunities for some proper racing. It's an important weekend for the team as well, so I'm looking forward to getting started."

Lance: "Silverstone is a real classic. The track is awesome to drive and it's always great coming here because the fans are so passionate. This year it's our first home race as Aston Martin, so I'm hoping we can have a strong weekend and make the whole team across the road feel proud."


Keys to the Race

A Safety Car has been deployed in eight of the previous 10 races at Silverstone; while there has only ever been one Virtual Safety Car, in 2015. High-speed corners and a tightly bunched pack are often the ingredients for incident - in 2020, there were two Safety Cars in the first Silverstone race; none in the second - the Anniversary GP - a week later.


Despite being a high-speed circuit, Silverstone is usually a good venue for overtaking. Traditionally, most passing happens into Turns Six (Brooklands) and 15 (Stowe). The barely-there corner of Chapel marks the start of a DRS zone down the Hangar straight, allowing for extra overtaking opportunities into Turn 15. In 2020, 57% of overtakes used DRS.


This is a race that's historically hard on tyres. We've seen a wide variety of strategies run out here over the past few years - from one-stoppers all the way through to three-stop affairs. With early incidents likely, expect strategy to be steered by the advent of a Safety Car - as was the case in last year's British GP. This race is also the first weekend for the new Sprint Qualifying format, which will play into team decisions and their use of tyres.

British GP: Preview - AlpineThe team is gearing up for its second home race of the season as Formula 1 heads to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix. With fans in the stands and an all new qualifying format to trial, Executive Director Marcin Budkowski explains his thoughts on this weekend's race.

What challenges does the new Sprint Qualifying format bring this weekend?

Marcin Budkowski: We're looking forward to trialling the new race weekend format for the very first time this weekend in Silverstone. It's definitely something new and will create some action on all three days. For the teams, the main challenge will be to setup the cars and build the drivers' confidence in one hour of practice on Friday morning only, as we then go straight into Qualifying. The cars will be in parc ferme from that point onwards, which means we can't really touch them anymore. There are also different rules for tyre usage, including free choice for the race itself. We expect the new format to bring more uncertainty as some teams will get it right and others might not, which could mix the grid up and create more on-track action. Teams hate unpredictability as they always try to optimise everything to perfection, but it should be more exciting for the fans!


How much is the team looking forward to its home Grand Prix?

MB: It's great to be racing close to the factory in Enstone. It means a lot of our team members will attend the race in the grandstands with their families. In general, it's really good to have fans back, we enjoyed the atmosphere in Austria at the last race. We expect a big crowd at Silverstone, and British fans are hugely passionate and knowledgeable about Formula 1, so we hope to put on a good show for them.


What is the team doing to help improve Esteban's current performance?

MB: Esteban had two difficult races in Austria and we're still investigating whether there are any technical reasons behind it. To eradicate any doubt, the team has made the decision to make extensive changes to his car for Silverstone, including a new chassis.

Esteban performed very strongly at the start of the season and qualified the car on the third row of the grid on merit at two races in a row just a few weekends ago, so we are working together to make sure he bounces back, and this weekend is the perfect opportunity to do that.


How does the team reflect on its general performance level ahead of Silverstone?

MB: The car was competitive in Austria, but the race result did not reflect our potential.

Fernando had strong pace in qualifying and the race, but we weren't able to convert it into bigger points because of the incident in Qualifying. Silverstone, though, is a completely different challenge. It's an exciting track with a lot of high-speed corners that drivers enjoy racing at. The weather can be a factor there, and with the new format, it's shaping up to be a very interesting weekend!


It was a frustrating triple header across France and Austria for Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon). He and the team have been working hard to improve for this weekend's British Grand Prix where, an all-new qualifying mode will debut.


What do you like about Silverstone?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): Silverstone is an iconic circuit in Formula 1. Everything about Silverstone is associated with what Formula 1 is about, like all the history there and the legendary corner combinations it has. The run through Maggots, Becketts and Chapel is very special. In a Formula 1 car, that's about as good as it gets through the whole year and going flat out through that sequence is a fantastic feeling. The track is challenging as it's all about keeping momentum and putting everything together in a good rhythm. It's going to be cool to see all the fans there and having their support this year. I'm looking forward to experiencing that.


What moments stand out for you at Silverstone?

EO: I've always loved racing there. In Formula 3 in 2014 I was on pole position, took three podiums and won a race. I was also on the podium there in GP3, so I do have some nice memories of Silverstone. In Formula 1, I've been in the points there a number of times. Last year, with the two races, we had competitive weekends as a team with some good results. Of course, the aim is to repeat that this weekend.


Are you looking forward to the Sprint Qualifying?

EO: The Sprint Qualifying is certainly going to freshen up the race weekend. It brings a new dynamic to the event, so I'm interested to see how it will unfold. Before that, though, we have to plan a productive Free Practice and then make sure we're as far up the grid as possible in qualifying on the same day. It's going to be different to usual, but I like the idea and I'm looking forward to seeing how it will go.


How are you aiming to comeback after the recent frustrations?

EO: The France-Austria triple header was not as successful as we had hoped. It's good that we're heading to a completely different circuit, taking on a new challenge and having a reset. The team and I have been working very hard behind the scenes to see what we can do to improve our performance. I know we'll come back to the level we had at the start of the season and the hard work will only continue until we achieve that and even go beyond. I'm really motivated for a good result this weekend.


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) suits up for his eighteenth appearance at the British Grand Prix this weekend as he looks to continue his current form at the historic Silverstone circuit.


It was a fourth points finish in a row last time out in Austria, how do you reflect on the second race of the season there?

Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): I was happy to come away with a point in the end after a frustrating qualifying session where we had the pace to do much better. The car felt good across all three days so this is a positive we must take forward with us to Silverstone. It will be a different race at Silverstone, and I suspect the gaps between the field won't be as close as they were in Austria due to the nature of the lap. The car felt good during the three races in France and Austria so I feel confident we can be competitive here this weekend.


You've had some good memories racing at Silverstone, most notably your pole position, race win and fastest lap in 2006. Do you enjoy racing there?

FA: It's a fantastic circuit and always provides us drivers with good racing. I've had some memorable results there, with my win in 2006 for Renault (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/13/renault) one of the best memories. There is a good mix of high and medium speed corners and, of course, the weather can be variable so it should be an interesting weekend. It's good to be at the team's other home Grand Prix and with it being so close to Enstone, I will be visiting the factory before the race.


What's your favourite part of the Silverstone circuit?

FA: I enjoy most of the circuit but if I had to choose one part it would be the high-speed middle sector from Copse through to Maggotts and Becketts. Taking this section at such speed and high levels of grip in a modern Formula 1 car is thrilling as a driver.

It's quite harsh on tyres there due to the fast-flowing corners so that will be something we will need to manage over the weekend. It will also be great to see fans in the grandstands as it has a very special atmosphere.

British GP: Preview - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Being on the podium for the third time this season was a great feeling. It was a well-deserved result for all the hard work the entire team has put in so far this year and during an intense triple-header. Hopefully, we can carry this energy into mine and the team's home grand prix this weekend, although we need to be realistic in what we can achieve as Silverstone is a very different track. That being said, we'll still be trying our hardest to score as many points as possible.

"Racing at Silverstone is always a special occasion with it being my home race. Welcoming back the British fans - in the safest way possible - will be amazing to see.

I've missed them a lot especially doing two races there last year behind closed doors.

Seeing the grandstands full and everything feeling a bit more normal is something I'm really looking forward to.


"We also have the first sprint qualifying event of the season. We'll be straight into the action on Friday with qualifying before the sprint on Saturday, so we'll be prepared to hit the ground running. It's something new for everyone and should make for some close and exciting racing that I'm sure the fans will enjoy!"


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "This weekend sees us heading to Silverstone for the team's home race. It's going to be a special moment for us all as we get to see the fans back in those grandstands - it's been a long time coming. We've slowly seen more and more fans back at track as the season has progressed and when it's been safe to do so in certain countries. I think everyone has missed the noise and atmosphere that only the fans can provide.


"At the British Grand Prix we'll try out the new sprint quali format for the first time, which will be an exciting challenge. It'll be interesting to mix up the weekend and I'm sure it'll provide plenty of opportunities to put us in a good position for the race on Sunday.


"After the three back-to-back races in France and Austria, I've taken the time to fully recharge my batteries, and spent some time at Goodwood driving Senna's MP4-5B, which was just awesome. I'm ready to go again at Silverstone and keep pushing after a more positive weekend in Austria where I gained a bit more confidence in the car. We just need to continue to make the steps to translate those improvements into lap-time, so we can challenge for good points."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Following the conclusion of the first triple-header of the season, we now look forward to racing at our home grand prix this weekend. It's great that the British Grand Prix will see a full-capacity crowd, with our fans and many team members supporting from the grandstands, while ensuring the appropriate measures are in place to keep everyone safe.


"This weekend will also see the first sprint qualifying session of the year take place.

We're looking forwarding to trialling the new Saturday sprint format as we continue to see the sport develop and encourage closer and exciting racing for the fans. The team has been working hard in preparation for the change to how we run a usual race weekend, with qualifying now being on Friday and a sprint race on Saturday. The format will certainly mix things up for everyone and every team will be looking to capitalise on any opportunities.


"We've taken the time to reset as a team after the strong result in Austria and we're ready to go again in the fight for good points. We're continuing to take steps forward in terms of performance by extracting the most out of our package, but we need to remain realistic about what's achievable, stay focused and take each race at a time as we progress through the season."

British GP: Preview - Red BullReflecting on the race in Austria, how do you feel looking back? Have you had chance to re-watch the race?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): Obviously it wasn't my day, I have learnt from what happened and I have taken the positives away from the race. We have to keep pushing and I am now focussing on this weekend, looking ahead, I can't wait to get back on track at Silverstone. I am very excited to see all the fans back at the track too, the atmosphere is always electric at Silverstone. Hopefully lots of the Team's family can come and watch the race too, they are all in for a good race weekend.

How are you feeling heading into the weekend at Silverstone, is this a track that you look forward to racing on?

SP: I'm feeling positive and pumped up for this weekend, hopefully we can get onto the podium again. It will be interesting to see the new race format for Formula One too. As a Team we have put in a lot of effort to understand the new race format, a lot of preparation and practice has gone into this weekend. It will be very different for everyone, it's definitely exciting and I hope that the hard work pays off.


Other Teams are planning to bring upgrades to this race weekend, do you expect that to make things closer across the field?

SP: Yes, I believe so, and I saw Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) talk about upgrades so I'm sure they will be very strong this weekend. We will of course try our hardest as well and hopefully we will be able to come back up on top. Let's see what happens!


There will be a full crowd at Silverstone this weekend, how does it compare racing in front of a UK crowd to any other circuit in the world?

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): Having fans back will really make the difference at Silverstone and the British crowd love motorsport in general which means it is a special place to be. Last year we did two races with no crowds and the atmosphere was missing, it's of course still an amazing track, but to have the fans back again is going to make it even better and even though I know they will be supporting the British drivers I love to see the passion that they have for all of us. I just hope that the race is going to be exciting for them too.


It's been a great start to the season for yourself and the team...

MV: We've started the season off really well and of course I'm very happy about that, but we have to keep on pushing, we can't just be thinking about our results so far. It's going to be really tight and a challenge for the rest of the year but that is what makes it exciting. We were for sure ahead in Austria and our car was very good there but in France we only won with a few laps to go, so the championship is very close and maybe even closer than the points show at the moment. There are some tough tracks coming up where Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) may have the edge on us but we have a great Team and we are doing everything we can to try and stay ahead.


How much does it excite you that there's a new a format that allows you to race flat out without needing to pit?

MV: I'm very open about trying the sprint races and I quite like that we have a bit less practice before we head into qualifying, but let's just wait, it's difficult to say anything about it until we've tested it this weekend. Every race you take risks but controlled risks, especially when you are fighting for a championship, but this one race isn't going to define the end result.

British GP: Preview - Alfa RomeoAlfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN heads into the British Grand Prix weekend with a sense of expectation, as Formula One undertakes the first ever sprint race weekend in its more than seven decades of history. With a new format come new opportunities, and the team hope to make the most of them to return to points-scoring ways in Silverstone.

The weekend is turned upside down with every day of on-track action now having a key highlight moment to capture the fans' attention: Friday will feature a practice session, followed by qualifying, which will set the grid for the Sprint race. A second practice session, held on Saturday morning, will be followed by the new Saturday Sprint, a 100km dash to the flag whose final order will set the grid for Sunday's showdown. The main offering of the weekend will proceed in its usual fashion.


The new format will create opportunities as teams balance risks and benefit of an aggressive Saturday, potentially shuffling the order around. It's an interesting format, as yet untested, that shows Formula One's push towards offering new, entertaining ideas for the sport's fans.


With this new race weekend making its debut, we're looking forward to hitting the track even more than usual...


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "Formula One has taken a bold step by introducing this new format, something that shows their attention to delivering new, exciting offerings to the growing fanbase of the sport. A race weekend like this is something we have never done before, so I expect everyone to be curious about how it will go: most importantly, we know Formula One will review how the format works and will learn important lessons to keep our sport relevant and exciting for competitors and viewers alike. Whatever the weekend holds in store, we know that new scenarios bring new opportunities and we need to be sharp to make the most of them. Anything can happen and we have to make sure we're in the right position to extract the best possible result from the new format."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "The new format will be interesting: I don't feel we are in a position to judge it yet, let's see what this weekend brings and then we can make our mind up about it with more knowledge. Most importantly, no matter how the weekend looks like, we need to make sure we're competitive from the beginning: things start to matter on Friday and we need to be right in the battle for the top ten from the start if we want to be there at the end of the day on Sunday."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I am excited to get back to racing, especially with the enthusiasm from the celebrations of Italy's European Championship victory still fresh in my mind. I hope some of this shine can rub on me this weekend and we can deliver a more successful weekend than the last two races, when we were effectively out of contention on the first lap without fault. We know we can be competitive and fight against any of our direct rivals when things don't go against us, so let's make sure this weekend is when we get it right."

British GP: Preview - MercedesAs part of its preview to the British Grand Prix, Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) issues a six minute video guide to Sprint Qualifying featuring Ron Meadows, Andrew Shovlin and Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas).

Toto Wolff: "We head to Silverstone for a weekend with a full house of 140,000 passionate F1 fans and in the middle of a hard-fought championship. The circuit is just ten minutes from our home in Brackley and 45 minutes from Brixworth - and it will be a huge boost to be racing in front of so many enthusiastic supporters.


"The first weekend with the new sprint qualifying format brings a fresh challenge for all teams. With just a single one-hour practice session ahead of the Friday qualifying session, and the cars' configuration fixed from the beginning of standard qualifying on Friday, whoever can get up to speed quickest will carry an advantage through the weekend. We will be adapting our approach and running plans to ensure we are best prepared for every aspect of the new challenge.

"This year we'll be racing on the Hamilton Straight for the first time, which will be a special moment for Lewis and the whole team. I can't think of another example of an active driver being honoured in this way by a circuit - it's testament to what Lewis has achieved in this sport so far in his career. But I know come Saturday and Sunday, his only focus will be fighting for maximum points in this colossal championship fight.

"Valtteri enters this weekend full of confidence: he performed strongly in both races in Austria, with two podium finishes, and is eager to continue making up ground in the drivers' championship table.

"Silverstone is an incredible track, fast and flowing, and one that we hope should suit our car better compared to Spielberg. We also have a few small updates on the car, and we look forward to seeing how they perform. We know we need to give Lewis and Valtteri the car to perform at Silverstone and everyone at Brackley and Brixworth is working flat out to deliver it."

British GP: Preview - WilliamsWe head to Silverstone this week, and the home of British motor racing for the 10th round of the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship. Despite numerous layout changes over the years, 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 remains one of the most enjoyable circuits on the calendar and provides an exciting challenge for drivers and engineers alike.

The incredible British fans have been missed and the team is looking forward to racing in front of a full capacity crowd on home soil.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: The event at Silverstone is always a highlight of the Formula One season, as well as an iconic event of the British summer. This year, the event is notable for the experimental format which will see traditional Qualifying take place on Friday evening and then a Sprint Qualifying session on Saturday afternoon, before the main Grand Prix on Sunday. For us, this represents quite a change in how we approach, plan and execute the event. Fortunately, we have the experience from the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in Imola last year to help guide us and to give us some insight into how the other teams are likely to approach the two free practice sessions.


The track itself is largely unchanged from last year and it is a layout that we know well.

The tyre quantities are a little different due to the event format, with each team receiving one fewer sets of tyres than at a standard event, as well as a different compound distribution. Pirelli have made available the hardest of their compound range and these should be well suited to the demanding nature of Silverstone.


Silverstone remains one of the most exciting and most loved circuits on the Formula One calendar, and its mix of dramatic high-speed corners and frequent short straights places tremendous demands on both the cars and the drivers. Crucially, the influence of the wind - and potentially the rain - can quickly change the character of the circuit and with only one free practice session before the Qualifying session, it will be vital to understand the conditions quickly and to get to a setup that the drivers are comfortable with.


Having enjoyed some good fights with the midfield teams at the last few events, we are very keen to continue our recent form in front of a large home crowd, which will include many of our colleagues who don't usually get to travel to the circuit. The whole team is motivated and excited by the challenge ahead of us as we face the new event format at one of the best venues in the world.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70258/drivers/66/george-russell): I am really excited for my home race and to have all the British fans back will be an incredible experience. It will be a challenge with the new format this weekend, so we are going to have to be on our toes to make the most of it. All in all, the British Grand Prix at Silverstone is always a great weekend; it has the best crowds of the year, the fans are incredibly passionate, and the circuit offers great racing. There's nothing quite like it.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): I am super excited for Silverstone; it is my favourite track on the calendar by far. The nature of the high-speed corners, which are very fast and flowing, makes it the perfect track to drive these modern Formula One cars that have so much downforce. It is such an exhilarating feeling with all of the G-forces through your body. It's also the team's home race, so I'm very excited to be a part of that as I didn't have my own home race this year, but this will be just as special. I am hoping for a very strong weekend to make it all the better.

British GP: Preview - FerrariInnovation and tradition come together at the tenth round of the season, the British Grand Prix. It takes place at Silverstone, a circuit enshrined in the history of Formula 1 as the track that hosted the opening round of the very first world championship, on 13 May 1950. And it's here that this weekend, the new Sprint Qualifying Race format is being trialled for the first time, introduced with the aim of adding a further element of competition to the race weekend, making it even more spectacular for the fans.

Drivers and teams therefore face a different timetable to usual. On Friday, instead of two 60 minute free practice sessions, there is just the one at 14.30 local time (15.30 CET), followed at 18 (19 CET) by qualifying which defines the grid for the Sprint Qualifying. There is a second hour of free practice on Saturday at 12 (13 CET) and then at 16.30 (17.30 CET) the 100 kilometre race gets underway, with no obligation to change tyres and with a free choice of compound.

The result of this race will decide the grid for the Grand Prix, which starts on Sunday at 15 (16 CET). The top three finishers will score points. The format is due to be repeated at two more rounds this season: another classic on the calendar, the Italian Grand Prix at Monza (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/13/monza) and the race at Interlagos, Brazil.


Another new element being introduced at Silverstone concerns the tyres: sole supplier Pirelli is bringing a new construction tested in free practice at the last race in Austria.

The compounds are the same as before and for this event, the teams will use the C1, C2 and C3, but the structure of the carcass of the rears has been made more rigid.


Silverstone is known as the home of British motorsport, a track laid out on the perimeter roads of a wartime airfield and, over the past 30 years, it has been modified several times, while maintaining its essential characteristic of being fast and flowing with some of the best loved corners on the calendar. The current track is 5.891 kilometres long and aerodynamically speaking, it has become a medium downforce circuit, where one needs good traction for the twistier sections and plenty of speed for the straights and high speed corners. The engines run at full throttle for 70% of the lap and there are two DRS zones: one on the straight between turns 5 and 6 and the other on the Hangar Straght, which comes immediately after the famous changes of direction made up of the Maggots, Becketts and Chapel corners. The British Grand Prix will be raced on 52 laps (306.198 km).


British Grand Prix: facts & figures


2. The number of Grands Prix that have always been on the Formula 1 World Championship calendar: the British and Italian events. In fact the first world championship event took place at Silverstone on 13 May 1950 and was won by Giuseppe Farina for Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo), while the following year, Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) took its maiden victory courtesy of Jose Froilan Gonzalez in a 375 F1. Silverstone has hosted the race 54 times, with 12 taking place at Brands Hatch and five at Aintree.


7. The number of drivers who shared the honour of setting the fastest race lap in the 1954 British Grand Prix. At a time when timing only went down to the nearest tenth of a second, a time of 1:50.0 was set by the Ferraris Jose Froilan Gonzalez, who was also the race winner, team-mate Mike Hawthorn, Maserati drivers Alberto Ascari, Onofre Marimòn and Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio in a Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and Jean Behra in a Gordini. They were each awarded one seventh of the point on offer for the fastest race lap.


8. The furthest back on the grid from which the British Grand Prix has been won. It happened at Brands Hatch and Carlos Reutemann, who passed away one week ago, was the driver in question at the wheel of a Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) 312 T3. As for Silverstone, winning from furthest back was Emerson Fittipaldi who started seventh in 1975 in a McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren). When it comes to getting to the podium from the furthest back, the accomplishment of Onofre Marimòn is likely to remain unbeaten, as he finished third, having started 28th in a Maserati.


1907. The year the very first permanent race track was opened. On 17 June, the crowds flooded through the gates of the Brooklands Motor Circuit, designed and built by entrepreneur Hugh Locke King. It was an oval, but with one unusual feature in that the pit straight was only used for the start, finish and pit stops, as during the races competitors turned right at "The Fork", the only right-hander on the track that led on to a 30 degree banked semi-circular corner, the Home Banking.


31000. The number of people competing in some form of motor sport in the UK, including everything from karting to historic racing, the most of any country in the world. Great Britain also boasts more racing teams than any other country.

British GP: Preview - PirelliFormula 1 history is made at Silverstone this weekend with Pirelli as title sponsor: for the very first time there will be a sprint qualifying on Saturday to determine the grid for the grand prix on Sunday. The tyres nominated are the same as last year's British Grand Prix (which was the first race of a Silverstone double-header in 2020): C1 as the P Zero White hard, C2 as the P Zero Yellow medium, and C3 as the P Zero Red soft. The hardest compounds in the P Zero Formula 1 range have been selected due to the famous demands of the circuit, which puts lots of energy through the tyres.

The allocations are different for the weekends hosting a sprint qualifying. There will be 12 sets of P Zero slick tyres (instead of 13): two sets of P Zero White hard, four sets of P Zero Yellow medium, and six sets of P Zero Red soft. In addition, up to six sets of Cinturato Green intermediates and three sets of Cinturato Blue full wets – in case of wet weather conditions.


In Friday qualifying, only the soft tyre can be used but there will be no obligation to start the grand prix on the tyre with which the fastest time was set in Q2. In Saturday's sprint qualifying, drivers will have a free choice of tyres with no obligatory pit stop. The tyre rules for the grand prix on Sunday remain unaltered, apart from every driver having a free choice of tyres for the start.


The new rear construction that was tested during free practice in Austria will make its race debut in Silverstone. These rear tyres, with a more robust structure but no extra weight and incorporating some of the elements already planned for next year's 18-inch tyres, will be used from now until the end of the season.


Pirelli's 2022 18-inch Formula 1 slick tyre test programme continued after the Austrian Grand Prix with two days of testing at the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Ring with AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri). Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) and Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda) drove for one day each.


After Silverstone, Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) (day one), Aston Martin and Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) (days one and two) will remain on track for another 18-inch tyre test from 20-21 July.


Track Characteristics



Silverstone is renowned as a high-speed, high-energy circuit. The famous Maggots and Becketts corners in particular impose big forces on the tyres, caused by lateral acceleration peak in excess of 5g as the drivers sweep through the complex without lifting.


Last year's British Grand Prix was won with a one-stop medium-hard strategy: the same tactic selected by all three podium finishers (although Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen), in second, made a late stop for soft tyres and claimed the extra point for fastest lap).


Mario Isola: "There are plenty of new things to look forward to during the Silverstone weekend: first and foremost the introduction of sprint qualifying for the first of three races this year, which will completely alter the dynamic and rhythm of the weekend as well as having an important effect on how the tyres are used. The different ways in which the teams interpret these new regulations and make the most of them is going to be fascinating to watch. We're also introducing the new construction of rear tyre that was tested successfully in Austria with positive feedback. As for Silverstone itself, it remains one of the biggest test of the year for tyres thanks to all its fast corners, meaning that some degree of tyre management is always essential. Another key factor is of course the British weather, which is famously variable at this time of year."

El problema que le veo es el tema del parque cerrado desde los libres 1. Deberían poder trabajar más en el coche para que quieran arriesgar algo más. Y otra cosa, ¿les merece la pena arriesgar a no acabar la carrera del sábado y verte obligado a salir último en la del domingo que es la que reporta la mayor cantidad de puntos? :dontknow: Estas cosillas me hacen tener dudas de esta carrera.

Resultados FP1
Viernes, 16 de julio de 2021


Extraña sesión en la que Max VERSTAPPEN ha sido el más rápido y ha dado sensación de dominio dejando a NORRIS, HAMILTON y LECLERC trás él a 7 décimas. Hamilton parecía por la radio muy sorprendido de tal diferencia.

Con sólo una hora de entrenamientos antes de la calificación, los programas de los equipos han sido dispares incluso entre sus pilotos. Muy poco tiempo para preparar calificación y hacer pruebas de cara al estreno de la calificación al sprint y a la carrera del domingo.

Carlos SAINZ ha finalizado 6º a 8 décimas, justo entre BOTTAS y VETTEL.

ALONSO ha terminado en la posición de su dorsal, 14º, a un segundo de tiempo de SAINZ y a 5 décimas del de OCON, que ha finalizado 10º. La diferencia entre los pilotos de Alpine debe de haber estado en los diferentes programas (Ocon provó con el blando y el duro y Alonso con el medio y el duro) aunque es posible que el cambio de chásis de Ocon haya influido en una mejora de su rendimiento con respecto a las últimas carreras.

Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
Viernes, 16 de julio de 2021


Lewis HAMILTON ha sido el más rápido de la sesión de calificación aunque no ha logrando la pole del GP, sino lo que han llamado el «Pirelli Speed King Award» :roto2: :facepalm:. Un error en su segundo intento en Q3 no le permitió mejorar su tiempo del primer intento que le ha servido para poder salir mañana desde la primera posición en la calificación al sprint.

VERSTAPPEN ha tenido que conformarse con la segunda plaza. Ha comentado que ha tenido subviraje durante toda la sesión, lo que le ha impedido hacer un mejor tiempo.

La segunda línea de salida estará formada por BOTTAS y LECLERC, que ha logrado terminar por delante de Checo PÉREZ, que vuelve a quedar demasiado lejos de su compañero y sin poder «molestar» en la salida a alguno de los Mercedes.

La 6ª y 7ª posición ha sido para los McLaren de NORRIS y RICCIARDO, que han terminado separados por tan sólo 2 milésimas.

Tras ellos ha finalizado RUSSELL, que ha vuelto a brillar en calificación. Ojala tenga un buen día mañana, aunque sería una pena que lograra terminar entre los 10 primeros sin poder pillar algún punto.

SAINZ y VETTEL cierran las 10 primeras plazas.

La posición 11ª ha sido para ALONSO, que se ha quejado de haber salido en tráfico.

Treino de classificação do GP da Inglaterra – Mundial de Formula 1 – 2021A sessão de classificação em Silverstone parecia ter rumos certos para Max Verstappen largar na pole position na corrida Sprint de amanhã, mas a sorte mudou para o lado de Lewis Hamilton no Q3 e o resultado foi à conquista da 1ªposição do piloto inglês para amanhã.

A sessão de sexta-feira começou no final da tarde no circuito de Silverstone. Todos com os pneus macios, mais os favoritos foram para a pista depois. Lando Norris chegou a liderar a sessão, com uma surpreendente 2ªposição de Antonio Giovinazzi, na frente de Pierre Gasly.

Norris ficou na frente até Hamilton marcar 1:27.160 e assumir a liderança com 327 milésimos de frente para Valtteri Bottas e 563 milésimos a frente de Charles Leclerc (3ºColocado). Porém, Verstappen ainda estava começando sua volta, era questão de tempo para ele marcar o melhor tempo, com 1:26.751 a 9:15 do final do Q1.

Esteban Ocon com um novo chassi dá mostras de melhora no seu desempenho, o Francês subiu para a 6ªposição. Isso empurrou Sainz jr. para a zona dos eliminados. Porém, o espanhol estava em volta rápida e passou para a 4ªposição, mas Leclerc não conseguiu melhorar, pois acabou perdendo o carro na última curva e teve sua volta anulada.

A 4 minutos do final, Daniel Ricciardo estava entre os eliminados, junto de Raikkonen, Latifi, Mick Schumacher e Nikita Mazepin. A 2 minutos do final, Gasly faz um belo tempo e sobe para a 6ªposição.

Nessa altura, todo mundo buscava tempo para se garantir no Q2, George Russell que estava na bolha, tira tudo do carro da Williams para se colocar na 8ªposição, mas Giovinazzi, Vettel e Ocon que estavam também no risco marcaram ótimas marcas e se garantiram entre 15 primeiros.

Max Verstappen acabou sendo o mais rápido, seguido de Hamilton, Leclerc e Perez que marcaram excelentes voltas na reta final. A Classificação terminou para Yuki Tsunoda, Kimi Raikkonen, Nicholas Latifi, Mick Schumacher e Nikita Mazepin.

No Q2, os pilotos da Mercedes e da Mclaren fizeram as primeiras marcas. Com Lewis na frente com 1:26.602, Bottas em 2º esta a 164 milésimos do ponteiro, Ricciardo e Norris, números 3 e 4 vinham em 3º e 4ºlugares.
A 10 minutos do final, Verstappen fez um excelente 3ºsetor e superou a concorrência para fazer o primeiro tempo, com a marca de 1:26.504. 1 minuto e meio depois, Perez da Red Bull e Vettel da Aston Martin passaram para a 4ª e 5ªposições.

Naquele momento: Verstappen, Hamilton, Bottas, Perez, Vettel, Ricciardo, Norris, Ocon, Gasly e Russell estavam classificados. Porém, Sainz jr. e Leclerc estavam sem tempo e foram para a pista para marcarem uma volta rápida.

Ao terminarem suas voltas, Leclerc passou para a 7ªposição e logo depois foi superado por Carlos Sainz jr. a 6:30 do final. Gasly e Russell foram chutados para fora da zona de classificação. Alonso, Stroll e Giovinazzi também estavam eliminados.

A 3 minutos do final, todo mundo vai para a pista em busca da última tentativa. Nessa última tentativa, o destaque ficou para a brilhante volta de George Russell da Williams, com um 7ºlugar, classificando para o Q3 pela segunda vez seguida. Tá muito na cara que o piloto tem muito a ver com esse sucesso, mas que o carro também melhorou para que isso fosse possível.

Com 2 minutos, todos saíram para a primeira tentativa (com exceção de George Russell). Nessa primeira tentativa, acabou Hamilton (1:26.134) sendo mais rápido que Verstappen. Bottas vinha em 3º, Perez em 4º e Norris fechando as 5 primeiras posições. Ricciardo, Leclerc, Sainz jr. e Vettel completavam os pilotos que marcaram tempo.

George Russell foi para a pista a 5 minutos do final e fez sua volta, a única volta e foi uma grande volta, colocando se na 7ªposição.

A dois minutos do final, todo mundo foi para a última tentativa. Nessa história, Hamilton fez 2 brilhantes parciais, mas errou na terceira não conseguiu melhorar sua marca. A sorte foi que Verstappen acabou melhorando seu tempo, mas ficou a 75 milésimos atrás de Hamilton, que vai largar na primeira posição na corrida de classificação. Foi uma festa para a torcida inglesa, que poderá ver o seu piloto na pole position, principalmente num momento em que 3 jogadores negros que erraram seus pênaltis na decisão da Eurocopa e foram xingados por racistas. Esse é um momento importante para um piloto negro dá uma resposta a esses idiotas que julgam a pessoa pela sua raça.

Sergio Perez acabou ficando com a 5ªposição e vai abrir a terceira fila e terá a companhia de Lando Norris. Daniel Ricciardo da Mclaren e George Russell da Williams formam a quarta fila. Completando os 10 primeiros colocados o espanhol Carlos Sainz jr. da Ferrari e o Alemão Sebastian Vettel da Aston Martin.


A Primeira corrida de classificação da história da Formula 1 será realizada a 12:30, horário de Brasília. Serão 100 km ou 30 minutos para a definição da pole position.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la sesión de "Clasificación":

British GP: Qualifying team notes - MercedesLewis set the fastest time in Q3 with an impressive lap to ensure he starts tomorrow's inaugural F1 Sprint Race in first position. Valtteri took P3, just two tenths behind, having set his time in clean air on the final run.

Both drivers made strong gains from the day's only Practice session and took to the track in front of the biggest crowd of the year under blue skies at Silverstone.


Today marked the first qualifying session of the new weekend format being trialled by F1, with a 100km sprint race tomorrow setting the order for Sunday's Grand Prix.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): I am so grateful to see everyone here - to come to the Silverstone Grand Prix and have a full crowd and see the energy is amazing. When I was coming into this weekend, I was hopeful that with the great work we have done together in the team, plus the energy of the fans, it would get us there.


Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) were very quick in the practice session but we were just staying focused on our job and trying to layer up - I was in the sim this morning as a practice session because it's the first time ever we have had a morning free. I was just putting in the time, trying to give absolutely everything and leave no stone unturned.


We've been working so hard, putting so much effort and time in - at the track, on the sim, in the factory - just trying to stay centred and squeeze every last thing out of this car. It's been such a difficult time for everyone and we finally got all the fans here at the British Grand Prix, and the desire to want to deliver for everyone is beyond belief.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): I think the last lap was really good, I was the first one out in free air with no tow so if I consider that, it was a good lap. As a team we are at the front in the fight which is great to see - Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) looked strong in Practice and it was a bit worrying but it's all to play for.


Today was only Qualifying, we have the Sprint Race tomorrow with lots of opportunities and I'm looking forward to it - as a team we'll try to get the best result. It was great to feel the energy and the atmosphere of the crowd today, it's really cool to see the fans here.


Andrew Shovlin: Well done to Lewis on another pole position; they haven't been easy to come by this year but it was a solid job throughout and a relief that his first lap in the final session was enough to secure the top spot. Our morning was focused on learning; there's simply too much work to fit into one hour but we managed to do a decent mix of long run and single lap work. Our single lap pace was uninspiring in Practice but we managed to find a direction to improve grip and balance going into Qualifying which showed in the timesheets. Valtteri's final run was a good lap but compromised by being first car out; we'll review our timing on that as we could have potentially secured the front row had we found him a car in front. Overall, the pace was strong from both cars and that's reassuring given that we've had a tough time in recent qualifying sessions.

British GP: Qualifying team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "Of course I am disappointed because I wanted to start first tomorrow but we have the sprint qualifying race to decide the main grid and then Sunday as well so we will try and get them back. Overall, the car was handling quite well but we just had a lot of understeer and I couldn't really attack the corners as I was waiting for the front to grip up. It was a bit of a weird feeling to drive and I don't think it was set-up or front wing related, so maybe front tyres, but we will look at it and it's nothing dramatic. To be this close is still very good for us on a track we expected Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) to be very strong and we know we have a good race car so I'm still confident for the rest of the weekend."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I ran wide into Turn 15 and my best lap time was deleted which is a bit of a shame but those are the rules and luckily I only lost one place. P4 would have been a bit better but we have the sprint race to make it further up the grid for Sunday so still there is plenty to play for. We improved the car a lot as the day went on but I found a bit of a difference in the balance at the end of Q3 and couldn't get the most out of the car. I'm looking forward to tomorrow as it will be interesting to see what happens with the new sprint format and how much progress we are able to make in that race."

https://www.pitpass.com/70283/British-GP-Qualifying-team-notes-Red-Bull


British GP: Qualifying team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "Tricky day with this different format, just because of the time limits you have. With less track time than we're used to, it makes it much more challenging to know what decisions to make, and you take a couple more gambles based on the information you have. Saying that, I don't think we could've done a lot better than sixth. Maybe there was something here or there, but at the end of the day I'm satisfied with where we are. We have FP2 tomorrow to prepare for the sprint, so we'll see what we can do."

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "On the whole it was a really positive day. I had really good speed all through qualifying, made some good steps and felt good with the car, so that's important. I can't help but feel frustrated because it's so close to P4 and it's always when you're at the back of the close pack that you feel it most. But anyway, it's progress, it's good, it's positive. It's always easy to find that half a tenth with hindsight and I feel it probably was there.


"Sprint qualifying tomorrow, we'll see what happens, get a good start, make some positions and get up to fourth, where I believe we could've been today. That's the plan tomorrow."


Andrea Stella, Executive Director, Racing: "Interesting day! The practice session this afternoon was intense, but we got through our programme and were well prepared for qualifying. Qualifying itself was very, very competitive, with several teams producing good lap-times, making getting through the sessions by no means a foregone conclusion. Ultimately, we managed to make it into Q3 with both cars, Lando and Daniel drove very well and we're very happy with the positions. It's only the first step of a longer weekend, however, and we're looking forward to sprint qualifying and the race."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston MartinSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I would have liked to end Q3 higher up because the car has looked competitive and the pace came quite easily today. Overall, it was a decent session: I was happy with my best lap in Q2, but in Q3 I struggled to find more from the car. So I think we could have been a few places higher up. It was great to see the big crowd here today and I guess the new format made Friday more interesting for the fans."

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "P15 is not how we wanted to start our home event, but there is an opportunity to improve tomorrow thanks to the Sprint Race format. I was not totally comfortable in the car during practice, but I think we made some progress in qualifying, although it was not enough to make Q3. It was a challenge to only have one practice session today before qualifying, but it is the same for everyone. We will go away tonight and learn from today to make sure we maximise the second practice session before Sprint Qualifying."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "We had some technical difficulties with Lance's car in Q1, which necessitated our having to make some changes to it for Q2. He did his best with that new set-up in Q2, but he was hampered by oversteer at Maggotts and Becketts, as a result of which he was not able to progress to Q3. Sebastian was happier with his car and, benefiting from a few tenths advantage of a fresh engine, duly made it through to Q3, although on his best Q3 lap he lost a small amount of time at Turns Six and Seven, and Turns 11 and 12. But what matters most now is converting today's results into as good a performance as possible in tomorrow's Sprint Race Qualifying, so as to optimise our chances of scoring solid points in Sunday's feature race."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team will line up for tomorrow's first-ever Sprint Qualifying at the British Grand Prix with Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) eleventh and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) thirteenth on the grid.After a one-hour practice session this morning, both drivers were thrown into the three-part Qualifying session around the legendary Silverstone track to determine the grid for tomorrow's 17-lap Sprint Qualifying.


Fernando missed out on a spot in Q3 by just 0.025secs with Esteban under one tenth adrift of the Spaniard's time after a tight session in front of a raucous, sell-out British crowd.


Fernando was quick out of the garage in Q1 to have a first feel for Soft tyres on low fuel. He settled into the session with his second run good enough for fourth on a 1min 27.580secs. Esteban too felt happy with his A521 early in the session and he was comfortably through Q1 on his second run with a 1min 27.415secs.


For Q2, Esteban slotted into tenth on his first run with Fernando behind after meeting traffic on his lap. A scrappy out lap on their second runs with all 15 cars jostling for track position hindered both drivers' chances of making any progress. Fernando improved his lap-time to take eleventh with Esteban unable to better his first effort, finishing in thirteenth place.


Both drivers have an opportunity to progress further on the starting grid for Sunday's 52-lap race when Formula 1's first ever Sprint Qualifying takes place tomorrow at 16:30 local time.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "Overall, I'm pleased with today even if the result is slightly disappointing. I'm happy to see that we're back on the pace and getting the maximum out of the car. Thanks to everyone at Enstone, Viry and at the track for all their hard work over the last week. Qualifying was going well until the last run, when we had a messy out lap. That was a shame as we were quick enough for Q3 today. It's all to play for tomorrow in Sprint Qualifying."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was tricky today, but I think we had a little bit more pace in the car to get into Q3. The traffic was quite difficult to manage and the out laps in Q2 were a bit messy. It was unfortunate to be out before Q3, but it's a new format this weekend. We have another opportunity tomorrow to gain places on the grid until we race on Sunday. Let's see what we can learn and improve ready for tomorrow. The atmosphere was amazing today and it really felt like we were racing so I hope the fans enjoyed it."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "It's been a good qualifying; even if we didn't go through to Q3. In reality, we were very close to it. We had the potential to be there, but a little bit of traffic was just enough to knock us out. So, we start eleventh and thirteenth on the grid, but we have another chance tomorrow with the Sprint Qualifying to improve our position for the main race. We need to go in with a positive approach, use it as an opportunity and try to use it to our advantage to gain some places."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - FerrariCharles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) will start from fourth and ninth on the grid in tomorrow's Sprint Qualifying that gets underway tomorrow at 16.30 local (17.30 CET), the result of which decides the grid for the 72nd British Grand Prix to count towards the Formula 1 World Championship.

It was a good qualifying for Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) with both its cars making it through to the final phase, on a track that is very demanding for car and driver. As has usually been the case this season, the midfield was closely contested down to the nearest thousandth of a second. That can be seen from the fact there is less than two tenths separating Charles and Carlos, but four other cars split the two SF21s on the time sheet. Leclerc was quickest of those behind the two teams leading the championship. Carlos is not that much further back and in tomorrow's Sprint Qualifying, run over 17 laps equivalent to around 100 kilometres, he can aim at moving up the order on the grid for Sunday's Grand Prix.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): I'm very happy with today's result. Going into qualifying with so little preparation makes things a bit more tricky, but also exciting. We did a good job in maximizing the potential of our car. Overall, I felt confident, especially in Q1. In Q2, I was not at the level that I wanted to be, but I regained my confidence and pace for the final session, finishing in P4. I think it was the best result we could have hoped for.
In terms of expectations for tomorrow, we have to wait and see. We are all heading into an unknown - to battle it out in the first Sprint Qualifying in Formula 1. We will use FP2 to prepare as well as we can, and give it our all to bring home the best possible result.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): I'm not fully satisfied with this quali. I had a good feeling with the car from the start of the session, building confidence every lap up to Q2, where I put together a strong lap time to make it into Q3. In the very last attempt however, I struggled a bit more and a couple of small mistakes here and there meant I couldn't match that lap from Q2, losing a tenth or so that unfortunately today was very costly, as it was extremely tight. It is a pity, because the car had the pace and the lap time was there.


The Sprint Qualifying gives us a good opportunity to push tomorrow, though. Time to focus on that. The weekend is far from over yet and I will give it my all until the end.


Laurent Mekies: A good qualifying for us on the very demanding Silverstone track.

There was a very close fight throughout the session for those behind the top three. In Q3, the smallest of gaps meant the difference between being on the second or fifth rows and our drivers finished at either end of this group of six drivers.


Charles did a very good job all day and fourth place was a nice reward. A shame for Carlos who had the speed to be a bit further up the grid for tomorrow.


We had prepared carefully for this weekend, the first with the new format and I think we saw the fruits of our efforts. We know that here more than ever, race pace is more important than performance over a single lap and that on a track like this, it is the most difficult challenge facing us. Now we must concentrate on the second round, namely Sprint Qualifying, which presents new challenges to the teams and drivers. We will have to do a good job and make the most of the second free practice to be as well prepared for this major new element of the weekend, without forgetting that the Grand Prix is on Sunday.

British GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Since FP1 we've struggled with the car balance, far more than usual. We made some changes for Qualifying, but it just wasn't enough. I was happy with my lap in Q2 but as I crossed the line, I knew it wasn't going to be enough, it was just so tight out there today. I think it's going to be hard the next few days, because we can't make changes to the car anymore. We only have FP2 to understand the tyre better ahead of the Sprint Qualifying and Sunday's race, but we'll fight as hard as always, it's a different format and lots of things can happen, you never know."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "After FP1 I'd started to get used to the circuit, but I had a lot of traffic and never managed to put together a perfect lap. So, going into Qualifying after just one session was always going to be difficult. It's a shame to be out in Q1 today, but the field was really tight at the end and I struggled again with traffic on my final push lap. Starting tomorrow from P16 I think will be difficult, but I'll give it everything I've got during Sprint Qualifying and we'll see what I can do."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "It's been a tough day for us here in Silverstone. We haven't been able to show the performance we expected or had demonstrated at previous races. With the new Sprint Qualifying format, FP1 was focused on normal Qualifying preparation and sustainable running. The performance on the Mediums was aligned to our expectations, but when fitting the Softs we struggled more than we expected. We analysed the data and made some changes for Qualifying, but without the usual sessions before entering Parc Ferme, we weren't able to tune the car as much as we would do normally. The changes made did improve the car, but they were not enough to enter into Q3. Yuki was looking set to progress into Q2, but a traffic jam in the last corner when starting his final lap cost him nearly 0.2s before turn one - he did well to make most of this time back, but sadly it was not enough. Pierre's laps were clean, but we just didn't have the pace today, so we really need to work on understanding this, as it's still not clear to us why we are struggling. We now have another practice session to focus more on long run performance and tyres, so I am confident we can extract more from the car in Sprint Qualifying and eventually the race."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa RomeoAlfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN had a car in Q2 in the first ever qualifying using the "Sprint" format, with Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) finishing the session in P14. Team-mate Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) set the 17th time, ending his involvement in the session in Q1, but both will aim to make up ground in tomorrow's 100km Sprint.

With today's session setting the grid for the novel session and drivers approaching qualifying with just one hour of free practice under their belts, the team approached the session aiming to make the most of the C41's performance after a good practice.


In the first segment, Antonio delivered a strong lap to finish 11th, while Kimi was unable to make progress and had to bow out, less than a tenth away from the safety of P15. Having made the cut, Antonio - who is entering the 50th race of his career this weekend - then set the 14th fastest lap of the session, edging Aston Martin's Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll) for a spot on the seventh row.


With the grid for the Sprint now set, tomorrow's race will, in turn, establish the starting order for Sunday's race. Having made good progress in all races so far this season, we enter Saturday confident we can make up some ground and give ourselves a good chance for points in this weekend's showdown event.

Every time we enter qualifying, we aim to place two cars in Q2 as a minimum objective: and even though we have made a big step forward compared to where we were when we raced in Silverstone last year, the margins are so thin that just a tiny gap means you miss out.

Antonio did a good job in Q1 but unfortunately Kimi couldn't make the cut. In Q2, we were able to leave one of the Aston Martins behind but that was as far as we could go. We remain confident, however: our race pace has been stronger than our single lap's so far, and if we can make up some places in tomorrow's Sprint, we can be in a good position to mount a challenge for the points on Sunday."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We were hoping for more so to be out in Q1 is not great: there wasn't anything particularly wrong with the lap, but there was simply no more I could get. Now let's focus on the Sprint race: it's a new format so let's see what we can get from it. We need to do our best and make up some places as we have done in previous races to give ourselves a better shot on Sunday."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It was quite a peculiar day, but it was fun to have just one hour of practice and then go straight into qualifying. Once again, we were strong enough to get into Q2, but that was pretty much as far as we could go. We were a bit too far from Q3 today. Let's see how it goes tomorrow: the Sprint will be important for Sunday and we approach it with a simple strategy - get positions on lap one but try not to take too many risks. Making progress after the start won't be easy with no stops, but we can still aim to gain ground in the opening stages."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) qualified 19th and 20th, respectively, for Saturday's inaugural 100km Sprint event - the result of which will then determine the grid for Sunday's British Grand Prix, Round 10 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship hosted at Silverstone Circuit, England.

Schumacher and Mazepin exited knockout qualifying after Q1 - with only the top-15 moving on to Q2. Armed with two sets of Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires the team wasted little time in releasing the VF-21's when the session commenced. Schumacher opened his account with a 1:29.846 followed by a 1:29.549 on his first set. Mazepin clocked a 1:30.065 then a 1:29.940 before returning to the pits. With their second set of softs bolted on, Schumacher improved again with a 1:28.738 tour while Mazepin dropped his best lap to a 1:29.051 - the rookies lining up P19 and P20 for Saturday's Sprint.
Much to the delight of the British crowd Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) scored the pole for the Sprint with a flying lap of 1:26.134 in the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) - the seven-time F1 world champion .075 of a second faster than current points leader Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) of Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing.


Prior to Friday qualifying drivers had just one 60-minute free practice session to dial in their cars around the 5.891-kilometer (3.66-mile), 18-turn circuit. Mazepin and Schumacher worked their way through one set of mediums and two sets of softs with some baseline running and qualifying sims. Schumacher's fastest lap in FP1 was a 1:29.227 (P17) with Mazepin recording a best lap of 1:29.808 (P19) - both drivers running the soft rubber on their hot laps.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "It was one of our better qualifying performances in terms of the balance. I think after having a very frustrating second race in Austria, it was good to get that. It feels a little like Formula 2, where I came from. I have great memories from Formula 2 here last year when I won my first race. There's loads of similarities and I have to say I really like this environment. I generally really like how the weekend goes and I think you just need to see how many people have come out on a Friday, I've never seen that before in my life - so it was really cool to be out there."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "It was positive in one way because we made some changes that felt good, but obviously the pace we have is unfortunately all we've got. Of course, we could've improved here or there but generally it wasn't possible to get into Q2. Still, the work is not done yet. We will keep on pushing, keep on trying and keep working on ourselves. It was interesting to see how everybody was excited to try something new and I'm excited to see how sprint qualifying will go. It's a chance for us if some cars have issues, we might profit from that. As long as we are in the race, we're in contention of starting a bit further ahead than we are now, so fingers crossed and let's go forwards."


Guenther Steiner: "It was a great day today at Silverstone with the crowds back again and Lewis (Hamilton) going on pole for the Sprint - fantastic for the sport. We did our best and more was not possible. We didn't damage anything, and now we're getting ready for tomorrow for the new format of Sprint qualifying. We'll see if there is something for us there. We will try our best."

British GP: Qualifying team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70280/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 8th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 18th ahead of Sprint Qualifying at the British Grand Prix. George secured his personal best qualifying with the team and got himself into Q3 for a second consecutive weekend, setting a 1:26.971 in the last session. Nicholas continued to improve throughout the session, posting his quickest time on his final run with a 1:28.254.

Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Today has been a busy but exciting day. We felt that we struggled a little in FP1, but we were happy that we had done the work that we needed to in order to set the car up ready for Saturday and Sunday. Going into Qualifying we made a few minor changes to the cars to suit the cooler track temperature and calmer wind conditions.


From the first run in Qualifying, both drivers were happy with their cars and were confident to push harder each lap. Nicholas was losing time on the straights compared to George and this is something that we need to investigate because it wasn't expected. George benefited from having five sets of tyres in the session and was able to improve with each lap. His final lap in Q3, at his home race and with the circuit to himself was great to see and he made the most of the opportunity with yet another excellent qualifying lap.


With the cars now in Parc Ferme, our attention turns to finalising the plans for FP2 and tomorrow's inaugural Sprint Qualifying session. We can't change much on the car, but there are still a lot of decision to be made, which could determine the final grid for Sunday's Grand Prix.


There is still a long way to go this weekend, but we are pleased with our start and we are looking forward to seeing how the strategies unfold over the next two days.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70280/drivers/66/george-russell): It was our best qualifying session, and to do it in front of a home crowd was such an amazing feeling. This morning in FP1 I had no confidence with the car, and here we are in P8! Following practice, we had a decision to make to try and improve the car or stick to our guns and hope the track came towards us, which it did. Everything got in a much nicer window and I felt confident and comfortable out there which allowed me to get that extra tenth or two. Ultimately, we did a fantastic job to get there and it is about tomorrow now. It is not going to be easy, but we need to be aggressive and get on the front foot.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): The car was feeling good and I could have done a better lap if the car balance had been in a slightly better window but overall, I am quite pleased. When I finished the lap, I was happy and then frustrated. Happy as a I felt it was a good lap but frustrated that it was slow. We have both the Sprint Qualifying and the Grand Prix itself to move forwards and we have FP2 to try and see if we can improve the issue, so that's what we are going to focus on.

British GP: Qualifying team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) made history by claiming pole position for the very first sprint qualifying to be held in Formula 1. The Englishman set a best time of 1m26.134s on the P Zero Red soft C3 tyre, ahead of Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen).

As the fastest driver in qualifying, Hamilton also claimed the inaugural Pirelli Speed King Award, which replaces the Pirelli Pole Position Award on events with sprint qualifying.

The driver starting Sunday's grand prix from pole position will be the winner of the half-hour sprint qualifying race tomorrow.


Qualifying today took place much later than usual, at 18:00, with 25 degrees ambient and 38 degrees of track temperature - which gradually fell as the evening went on.


All the drivers used the P Zero Red soft tyres for today's qualifying session from start to finish in accordance with the revised tyre rules for races with sprint qualifying. However, the drivers can start tomorrow's sprint qualifying and Sunday's grand prix on whichever compound they like from the three nominated this weekend.


The single hour-long free practice session today took place in the warmer conditions of the afternoon, where the drivers had the chance to sample the other nominated tyres as well. Verstappen was fastest in FP1, going 0.4 seconds quicker than the equivalent session last year. Pole position was slower than last year, but this was also affected by the engine maps being fixed for tomorrow's sprint qualifying race.


The revised format makes it harder to work out the performance gaps between the compounds. But based on the data from FP1, there's an estimated gap so far of about 0.6 seconds between P Zero White hard C1 and P Zero Yellow medium C2, as well as between medium and soft C3.


Mario Isola: "There was a lot for the teams to get used to with the new format, influencing the way in which they used their tyres, bearing in mind the half-hour sprint qualifying race tomorrow that the teams will want to run without pit stops.


"Considering the severity of this circuit, there's an important decision to be made about whether to run on the medium - which should be the most popular choice - or soft tyre tomorrow, keeping in mind also the mandatory tyres that will be needed for the grand prix on Sunday.


"As a result, there is quite a complex set of parameters for the teams to take into account with no previous experience to fall back on. And this is why many teams ran all three compounds in FP1 to gather as much information on them as possible.


"Qualifying was obviously much straightforward than usual with all the drivers running on the soft from start to finish, culminating in a fight for the fastest time that was extremely closely-fought at one of the most demanding tracks for tyres of the year."

Resultados FP2
Sábado, 17 de julio de 2021


Max VERSTAPPEN vuelve a ser el más rápido en los entrenamientos libres en Silverstone.

Han sido unos entrenamientos atípicos en los que todos se han centrado en hacer tandas largas. Ha sido extraño no ver ni un intento de vuelta rápida en unos libres disputados en sábado.

Tras el piloto de Red Bull han finalizado los de Ferrarri, con LECLERC 2º y SAINZ 3º.

Checo PÉREZ vuelve a quedar a demasiada distancia de su compañero. Ha terminado 5º, por detrás de OCON pero a casi 9 décimas.

A continuación han acabado los McLaren de NORRIS y RICCIARDO, que este fin de semana está mucho más igualado a su compañero.

HAMILTON ha finalizado 8º y BOTTAS justo tras él.

ALONSO ha terminado 13º, entre los Alfa Romeo de GIOVINAZZI y RAIKKONEN.

Sorprende ver a los Aston Martin tan atrás, con VETTEL 17º y STROLL 18º.

Han sido unos libres muy tranquilos, aunque bastantes pilotos sufrieron blistering en los neumáticos delanteros, sobre todo en el derecho. Los coches siguen en parque cerrado, así que pocos cambios podrán hacer si no quieren salir desde el pit lane.

FORMULA 1 PIRELLI BRITISH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Silverstone
Resultados SPRINT
Sábado, 17 de julio de 2021


Max VERSTAPPEN se convierte en el primer «Sprint Winner» de la Fórmula 1.

HAMILTON ha hecho una mala salida y se ha visto superado por Max, y no fue superado también por BOTTAS, que salía con neumáticos blandos de 4 vueltas por los medios nuevos de la mayoría, porque este tenía órdenes claras de guardarle las espaldas. Tras intentar en los primeros instantes de recuperar esa primera posición perdida, se calmó y decidió no correr riesgos innecesarios de cara a la carrera de mañana y se conformó con la segunda posición, al fin y al cabo sólo pierde un punto con respecto a Max.

LECLERC mantuvo la cuarta posición obtenida ayer.

La salida ha estado protagonizada por Fernando ALONSO que logró pasar de la 11ª plaza a la 5ª. Supo aprovechar de manera excelente el salir con blandos nuevos por los medios de los pilotos de alrededor.

Tras llegar a la 5ª posición, se dedicó a intentar aguantar a los pilotos que llegaban a su altura para perder el mínimo de plazas. Al final fue adelantado por NORRIS y RICCIARDO, por lo que mañana saldrá 7º. A quien logró mantener tras él fue a VETTEL, a pesar de que el alemán salió detrás de él.

RUSSELL ha cruzado la meta en 9ª posición. Una lástima que, para una vez que Williams termina entre los 10 primeros, no tengan recompensa en cuanto a puntos.

La 10ª posición ha sido para OCON. Mañana, estos 10 pilotos tendrán, como el resto, libertad de elección de neumáticos para la salida.

Complicada carrera para SAINZ. En la salida perdió una posición y luego RUSELL le dió un toque que le hizo caer a la 19ª plaza, logrando hacer una gran remontada hasta la 11ª posición en tan pocas vueltas. Los dos pilotos han sido llamados a comisarios por esa acción.

Junto a él saldrá mañana GASLY. Tras él saldrá RAIKKONEN, otro que supo aprovechar sus neumáticos blandos nuevos y en la salida logró avanzar 4 posiciones.

El peor parado de esta carrera ha sido Checo PÉREZ que destrozó sus neumáticos al hacer un trompo y salirse de la pista. Tuvo mucha suerte de no llegar a golpear las protecciones por muy poco pero al final se retiró debido a la fuertes vibraciones debido a los planos de sus neumáticos. Se reincorporó a la pista de manera bastante peligrosa.

A parte de la salida y la remontada de Sainz, la carrera ha sido una procesión. Sinceramente no creo que haya aportado mucho al espectáculo del fin de semana y, además, ha dado muchas pistas de lo que puede ser la carrera de mañana.

Alonso glad to be ‘on the dark side’ amid weaving complaints

Fernando Alonso was the hero of Formula 1’s first sprint race as he converted 11th on the grid to fifth on lap one and an eventual seventh place at Silverstone.

But while the string of moves he pulled off to overtake six cars through the opening corners earned plaudits, there were eyebrows raised at his subsequent defensive moves as he tried to keep his soft-shod Alpine ahead of faster cars on more durable tyres.

McLaren radioed Lando Norris to let him know that it had reported Alonso’s “weaving” to FIA race director Michael Masi, although no action was taken.

“I was surprised,” Alonso said when asked about the radio complaint.

“I never moved under braking. I was moving at the beginning of the straight.

“But I don’t care. I’ve been on the other side for nine races.

“It’s going to be the same for the remainder of the year – I will be on the dark side this time.”


.../...

“I’ve been overtaken in all the first laps outside the track in Austria and in Paul Ricard so today I thought I will overtake outside of Turn 9 out of the circuit, but it was not needed,” Alonso told Sky.

“But in case Lando was on the inside, I will keep flat outside the circuit and overtake.”

“There was obviously the weaving, but when he was doing it, I was never close enough for it to be dangerous,” Norris told Sky.

“So, I don’t think he did anything wrong. Some people said he did, but I don’t think he did. He was fine.

]“He just knows the limits of what he can do really, so it’s good. It makes it more exciting for him, for me and for everyone watching so it was a good battle.”

While the two McLaren drivers both got past Alonso to claim fifth and sixth, Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel couldn’t overtake his sometime title rival for seventh.

And although Vettel said Alonso“did well to defend” and was “OK” overall, he did feel some of the moves were made too late.

“He shouldn’t do that so late, because I wasn’t going to really go there, so it was a bit unnecessary,” said Vettel.

Asked by The Race if he meant Alonso had been moving around under braking, Vettel replied: “Yeah. So it was a bit confusing.”

En el corralito Alonso estaba muy contento con su salida y por haber recuperado 4 posiciones con respecto ayer. Ha comentado que tenía muy claro ir a cuchillo en la primera vuelta sin preocuparse de los límites de la pista, ya que parece que todo está permitido en esa primera vuelta.

Ha dicho que tenía pensado ir por fuera en Cops para adelantar posiciones pero que no ha sido necesario hacerlo porque Norris, que era quien estaba delante de él, ha levantando antes.

Tras el enfado de la última carrera, sigue echando un pulso a dirección de carrera.


"Er restituto":gaydude: está muy ocupado en disimular el asunto, ya que con ello la temporada se ha vuelto algo más interesante :sherlock:
Si hubiese estado C. Whiting (er pescahílla:gaydude:, E.P.D. :triste2:) le habría metido un +5s por estorbar a Vettel tanto tiempo :gaydude::risitas::cunaooooo:

Pues...si, no ha sido nada del otro mundo, prescindible. Lo único, lo que ha alterado las posiciones de salida.

Alonso, a mi no me ha extrañado su "beligerancia" en los primeros compases pero si esas "ESES" que se ha marcado precisamente despues de las eses del circuito cuando se defendia de los Mclaren. No sé, he llegado a pensar que lo hacia como medida de protesta por lo ocurrido en Austria. Vuelve el viejo Alonso gruñón, para bien y para mal.

Como curiosidad, la he visto en italiano porque es lo único que encontraba y me ha sorprendido que el comentarista técnico de su TV era Marc Gené, que habla una especie de italiañol muy entendible jeje

Lo de la beligerancia era evidente saliendo con blandos, lo de los seis adelantamientos en la primera vuelta no :pelosdepunta: (que no son del 20 al 14 :sherlock:), en el chat comenté en la vuelta 3 que Alo se iba a tener que disfrazar de Hulkenberg :gaydude::roto2rie:, y lo ha hecho bien, si. :risitas::juas:

Lo de las eses :sherlock:... yo creo que le ha salvado que fué corto y en medio de la recta... :pensando:... no creo que una acción así con un perseguidor la puedan ver como una protesta :nuse:, si hubiese "acortado por fuera" entonces si. :risitas:

Y el itálico :gaydude:... me puede.:ouch::mazo::cunaooooo:

El «retonno» del «gemelo malo». :sisi1: Sinceramente esas declaraciones sobran un poco. A ver cómo se defiende si lo investigan por algo así cuando va alardeando de que lo va a hacer. Sobre la acción que comentas, yo también la ví un tanto al límite. Parece que quiere tensar la goma con dirección de carrera a ver qué pasa.


Alonso glad to be ‘on the dark side’ amid weaving complaints

Prova de classificação do GP da Inglaterra – Mundial de Formula 1 – 2021

A grande inovação para esse final de semana foi essa corrida curta de classificação. Ela gerou expectativas grandes para todos e após 30 minutos e 17 voltas depois, as expectativas não só foram cumpridas como superadas. O que parecia ser algo banal acabou sendo muito bem realizada.

Sobre a corrida, Verstappen conquistou a vitória e a pole position na largada, se aproveitou de uma largada não muito boa de Hamilton parra passar a frente. Bottas e Leclerc mantiveram a 3ª e 4ªposições. Quem teve uma brilhante 1ªVolta foi o espanhol Fernando Alonso, que passou 6 pilotos e subiu para a 5ªposição. Norris, Ricciardo e Perez vinham logo atrás do piloto da Alpine.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/F1_ing_sabado_2021-6-1024x576.jpg

Carlos Sainz jr. acabou sendo tocado por George Russell, foi para a grama e acabou caindo para a 18ªposição.
Verstappen começou a abrir vantagem para Hamilton, já estabelecendo vantagem para o piloto da Mercedes. Bottas vinha segurando a terceira posição e Leclerc vinha perto. Já Alonso se segurava como poderia dos ataques de Norris. O piloto da Alpine tentava mudar a sua posição de defesa para quebrar o vácuo, mas isso resultou numa advertência por fazer isso por todas as voltas. Isso fez com que o espanhol deixasse Norris passar para a 5ª posição.

Ricciardo passou a atacar Alonso, nesse meio tempo, Sergio Perez acabou rodando e caindo para as últimas posições. O mexicano teve muita sorte em não ter ido para o muro.

Na 9ªVolta, Ricciardo supera Alonso que tentou revidar a ultrapassagem, mas não conseguiu lutar com o carro da Mclaren. A briga do piloto da Alpine passou a ser com Sebastian Vettel. Os pneus macios deram vantagem para Bottas, Alonso, Ocon e Raikkonen, mas cobravam seu preço na parte final da prova.

Em boa recuperação, Carlos Sainz jr. ganhou posições e chegou até a 11ªposição, após superar Pierre Gasly no termino da 13ªVolta. Sergio Perez acabou indo para os boxes na última volta, sem muito a fazer nas últimas voltas e com um carro visivelmente danificado.

Max Verstappen administrou sua vantagem para Hamilton e conquistou a vitória na classificação, garantindo a pole position após uma excelente largada. Lewis Hamilton acabou conquistando a segunda posição e Valtteri Bottas com a terceira posição. Os três primeiros colocados ganharam pontuação (3 pontos para o vencedor, 2 pontos para o segundo colocado e 1 ponto para o terceiro colocado).

Charles Leclerc teve um desempenho muito bom e acabou ficando com a 4ªposição. Lando Norris e Daniel Ricciardo vão formar a 3ªfila toda da Mclaren, conquistaram a 5ª e 6ªposições. Fernando Alonso fez uma excelente corrida e acabou na 7ªposição, segurando Sebastian Vettel da Aston Martin que vai formar a 4ªfila de peso, com 6 títulos mundiais.
http://portalsportszone.com.br/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/F1_ing_sabado_2021-17-1024x1024.jpgGeorge Russell não teve uma das melhores largada, mas se manteve firme entre os 10 primeiros e vai largar na 9ªposição e Esteban Ocon da Alpine larga na 10ªposição.
Carlos Sainz jr. conseguiu diminuir bastante o prejuízo que teve após ir para a grama na primeira volta, recuperou posições e chegou na 11ªposição. Pierre Gasly acabou sem muito destaque na 12ªposição. Kimi Raikkonen fez uma bela largada e melhorou sua situação na corrida, vai largar na 13ªposição.

Depois disso, Lance Stroll, Antonio Giovinazzi, Yuki Tsunoda, Nicholas Latifi, Mick Schumacher, Nikita Mazepin (que rodou na primeira volta) e Perez que abandonou na última volta completam o grid de largada para amanhã. A corrida em Silverstone será realizada a partir das 10 da manhã e terá duração de 52 voltas.

OBS: George Russell tomou punição de três posições, ele foi considerado culpado pelo toque que fez Sainz jr. sair da pista.

Impresiones de los equipos tras la prueba "al Sprint":

British GP: Sprint team notes - MercedesLewis was jumped at the start by Verstappen and despite fighting back strongly, couldn't make the pass and will start tomorrow's British Grand Prix in second position.

Valtteri started on the Soft tyre in contrast to the drivers ahead of him but without making gains in the opening part of the race, switched to tyre conservation mode to complete the 100km sprint. The Finn will start tomorrow's Grand Prix third on the grid, the same position he achieved in Friday's qualifying session.


Lewis added two points to his Drivers' Championship tally, losing one point overall to Verstappen, while Valtteri added a useful point to his championship as he continues to close the gap on the drivers above him.


The top of the Constructors' Championship remains unchanged with Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) each adding three points to their account.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): I did everything I could at the start with temperatures and clutch position but I still suffered wheelspin on the line so we'll dig deep to understand what happened. I think it was great for F1 to try something new and even if the race wasn't particularly exciting after the first lap for myself, there are definitely learnings we can take from today.


This season it's been a struggle with certain elements of the car but we've done such a great job to get to the performance level that we had yesterday - Valtteri did a great job too and we're definitely getting closer. The Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) is really difficult to follow on track and from yesterday's high, it feels like a bit of a down but we'll turn it around to find the positives and come out fighting tomorrow for the race.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Choosing the Soft tyres, we thought we might have a small advantage at the start but I couldn't gain any places through the first few corners and from then on, it was important not to kill my tyres because the Softs are much more sensitive than the Mediums. I suffered some blistering but I could manage it well and I'm happy we tried something different.


It was nice to have another race today, obviously not as meaningful as tomorrow, but I hope the fans enjoyed it, even if personally I prefer qualifying to the sprint. Tomorrow will be an open race, it's cool that we've got free choice of tyre compounds so we'll see a mix of strategies which should make things interesting.


Toto Wolff: That was a pretty flat out first sprint race - it was a frustrating for Lewis to lose a point to Max this afternoon, but we saw that we had the pace to make it a very close race tomorrow. We will need to take a closer look to understand what happened at the start for Lewis - and I think if we had held the lead, we had the pace to finish in P1 as well because it wasn't easy to follow. But it's set up an interesting Grand Prix: there are two teams close on pace, we have Lewis and Valtteri in the mix at the front, and it looks like tyre strategy can play a big part in these temperatures as well. So we will be aiming to fight back strong in the Grand Prix proper.


Andrew Shovlin: It's not ideal to have lost a place with Lewis off the start but we can take some encouragement in the car pace which is hopefully enough to put Max under pressure tomorrow. We also have two cars at the front which will open up some strategic opportunities. After the first lap there wasn't much that we could do; on the same age tyres it was hard for Lewis to get close enough to attack and for Valtteri, he was doing a bit more management to cover for the fact he was on the Soft tyre.


Having the sprint race today does make it a little easier to plan for tomorrow as you've got a clear idea of everyone's pace and how the tyres are behaving so we have a bit of work this evening to take the maximum learning from that. Our goal was to come here, to win and to close the gap in the Championship and I think from what we've seen over the last two days, that's still an achievable target.

https://www.pitpass.com/70303/British-GP-Sprint-team-notes-Mercedes



British GP: Sprint team notes - Red BullMax Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "That was good fun. I'm of course happy to score the three points and it's quite funny to have a pole position from the race as well but we will take it.

Around here it is difficult to pass but we had a good start and a good fight with Lewis on the first lap. From then we tried to do our own pace but we were pushing each other hard right to the end as you could see the tyres were blistering which we all had to manage. Starting the race on lower fuel we could really push the cars hard through the fast corners, lap after lap, which means it is naturally hard on tyres but we all have the same to watch out for. We now can't touch the cars for tomorrow and we learnt today that it is very close again with us and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes). It seems that we are very quick in the corners and they are quicker on the straights so tomorrow it's going to be a really exciting battle and the Team did a great job to manage the new format this weekend.

I also want to say a big thank you to the fans. I know they are mainly here for the British drivers but it is still great to see them here cheering and all I want is a good battle with Lewis and everyone else tomorrow which should keep the fans entertained."

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It's a real shame to have to retire from the sprint race today as the car felt quite good. It was a poor day for me and I can only say sorry to the Team as I lost the rear of the car while battling with Lando which ruined our day. I was in the middle of the corner, already picking up quite a lot of throttle and I think I got caught in a bit of dirty air and became a passenger really early in the corner. I avoided any contact but after the spin we had too much vibration on the tyres and that was it. The Team were worried about the damage that could be caused with the vibrations, and there wasn't anything more to gain, so they made the decision to retire the car. We're at the back of the grid tomorrow and it's not easy to overtake here, but we look like we have a lot of pace in the car so you can be sure I will be pushing hard to score as many points as possible. It's a low point for me, but tomorrow is a new day and I look forward to seeing what we can do."


Christian Horner: "It's fantastic to be starting on pole for the British Grand Prix, which was achieved in a different way with Max winning the first ever sprint qualifying race. This marks our first pole at Silverstone since 2011 and breaks the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) nine-year pole position streak. The race start was crucial for us and Max got a great launch off the line. We knew Lewis was particularly strong in Sector 1 so staying ahead down the main straight was particularly important for us, which he did and maintained the lead until the flag. It's just a shame that we haven't got Checo up there as well following that high-speed spin when he lost the rear in the dirty air. Thankfully Checo avoided the wall but the level of vibrations were so high we opted to retire him in order to fully check the car over and complete the necessary safety checks, once permission is granted, before the race tomorrow. You can see there was very little between us and Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) today, we were quicker in the corners where they were mighty in a straight line. The temperatures look set to sore and tomorrow's Grand Prix won't be a repeat in terms of tyre wear. The higher fuel loads at the start of the race mean the cornering speeds will be slightly lower, giving the tyres an easier workout in the corners at the beginning of the race, so it will be interesting to see how that affects things. It's fantastic to be staring on pole position and I hope the fans enjoyed the action and a different format of racing today."

https://www.pitpass.com/70302/British-GP-Sprint-team-notes-Red-Bull


British GP: Sprint team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A good first sprint quali race! I think we achieved everything we could've hoped for today. We got ahead of one of the Red Bulls, which is a quicker car, but we managed to beat them off the start and over the first lap, so it was a fun first-half. At the end, it was a quiet finish in clear air on my own. I think we now have a good reading on where we stand compared to the other teams, so we know what we need to try to do tomorrow. I hope the fans enjoyed the new format and it brought something different to the weekend. Let's hope for the same again tomorrow."

Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "That was quite good fun! It's obviously over pretty quickly, but Alonso having a good start made our race a bit more exciting, so I enjoyed it! The first ten laps were busy, I thought that was cool, so I hope the fans liked it.


"I don't know what it was like around us, but I hope the order changed up a little bit. I gained a position and start in a better place tomorrow than I started today. That was the aim for today, so I'm looking forward to going out and fighting for more tomorrow."


James Key, Technical Director: "The weekend has been a learning curve with a new format based around sprint qualifying, but we've enjoyed the fresh challenges this has brought. Car specification was frozen for yesterday's qualifying session, with the parc ferme conditions kicking in early this weekend, which left us with higher fuel levels and tyre compound assessment as the main focus for free practice this morning, both in preparation for the sprint quali and tomorrow's grand prix.


"The sprint race itself went well for us, with a great performance from our drivers, who both regained a position after getting past the fast-starting Alonso, although this stopped us from making any further progress in the time left. However, we're placed fifth and sixth on the grid for the race tomorrow and this gives us a good opportunity for some decent points.


"It's been an interesting weekend so far - the new format certainly adds new elements and a different approach to what we've been used to. Being able to push the car for 17 laps flat this afternoon certainly generated a lot of close racing and I think it worked well. It's great to see so many fans here at Silverstone - always a strong point of this race - and we look forward to seeing the same again tomorrow."

British GP: Sprint team notes - Aston MartinSebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "I have enjoyed this unusual weekend format so far. It was interesting to have the intense moment yesterday evening followed by the Sprint today, which can go either way. For us, it went well and we gained some places for the race tomorrow, and some others lost ground. Fernando [Alonso] made up a lot of places on lap one - starting on the Soft tyres - and I thought he would struggle more in the final laps. I was close behind him, but could not make the move to overtake. This result puts us in a decent starting position for tomorrow [P8], which will be a very different race with the strategy options."

Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "It was good to make up a little bit of ground in the Sprint, but I think we are still searching for the optimal car balance. It was challenging to make up any further places as the midfield bunched up and we ended up in a long train of cars. The positive is that the short race gives us more relevant data to go over and look to find the improvements we need. It is a long race tomorrow; anything can happen, plus the heat will be a factor, as well as the free choice of tyres, so I am looking forward to coming back stronger tomorrow."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "We achieved our objective in today's Sprint - to make progress with both cars - which we did. Lance suffered poor rear grip but nonetheless did extremely well to earn a P14 grid slot for tomorrow's race.

Sebastian finished eighth, close behind [Fernando] Alonso, whose Soft tyres were shot by the end, but obviously there was no point in Sebastian risking a back-row start for tomorrow's race by attempting to wrest P7 from Alonso, especially for no points reward.

He will therefore start tomorrow's race from a solid P8, from where he ought to be able to score points. From P14, over a full-distance 52-lap race, Lance, too, will be aiming to make up places and score points. Our objective must therefore be a double points finish at our home Grand Prix, proudly flying the Union Flag on both cars!"

https://www.pitpass.com/70304/British-GP-Sprint-team-notes-Aston-Martin


British GP: Sprint team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team will start tomorrow's British Grand Prix with both cars inside the top ten on the grid after a sensational Sprint Qualifying performance from Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon).

Fernando put in an epic drive throughout the 17 laps, the first-ever Sprint Qualifying race in Formula 1, moving from eleventh on the grid to fifth on the first lap thanks to an inspired strategy call of using Soft tyres, a super start, and, a strong first few corners.

Using the tyres to his advantage on the opening laps, the Spaniard held position until the McLarens moved through by lap nine. He then held Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) at bay with some defensive driving and measured tyre management to claim seventh at the end of the race and a strong position for tomorrow's race.


Esteban also enjoyed a strong performance, moving from thirteenth on the grid to tenth at the chequered flag. The Frenchman also started on Softs and had a similarly impressive start into the first corner, passing Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) off the line.


He inherited two further positions as a result of Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz)'s trip wide at Turn 6 and Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez)'s pirouette at Turn 14. Esteban too had to put in an impressive defensive shift to hold off Gasly and a charging Sainz at the chequered flag.


The 52-lap British Grand Prix will start at 15:00 local time tomorrow in front of a sell-out crowd.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "I'm pretty pleased with today's Sprint Qualifying as we've gained three places for the race tomorrow and that means we're starting in the top ten for tomorrow's race. It's where we felt we should be yesterday, so that's positive. The call by the team to start on Softs was good and I had a quick start off the line to gain some positions. I enjoyed the new format; it was fun as it added some action and dynamism to the weekend as well as some uncertainty. Tomorrow we have a free choice of tyres again and that leaves the strategy box open with some flexibility on what we can do. We're ready to race again and hopefully we can put on another show for the fans."

Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was a good session for us today and I had a lot of fun. I think we made the right choice starting on the Soft tyres and it's a better position to start the race tomorrow. Our start was good and I climbed quite a few places from eleventh to fifth in the first few corners. We then lost a few positions back to the McLarens and held onto seventh at the end. I think the format was fun but I am sure there are some small improvements we can make. We'll aim to carry this momentum into the race tomorrow."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "It was an exciting race for us, so a very positive Sprint qualifying all in all! We decided to start with new Softs, which was a calculated risk, but a good choice from the team. Fernando definitely made the most of the strategy; he did an incredible first lap, gaining six positions in half a lap and then he fought all the way through the race. With Esteban we also moved up a few positions, which is important for the actual Grand Prix tomorrow. It was a good job from the drivers and also the whole team and now we need to try to consolidate our positions tomorrow."

British GP: Sprint team notes - FerrariImmediate impressions after Formula 1's first ever Sprint Qualifying are positive. The 17 laps to decide the grid for the 72nd British Grand Prix to count for the Formula 1 World Championship provided spectacle and excitement for the crowd at Silverstone and viewers around the world. The outcome however was bitter-sweet for Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari).

Charles maintained his fourth place on the grid, but Carlos, who ended up being one of the stars of the show with a string of overtaking moves, lost several places after a collision with Russell in the early wheel to wheel stage of the race.

After the incident, Carlos dropped to 19th but he didn't lose heart and in just 12 laps he managed seven passing moves to get back up to eleventh place. He starts from that position tomorrow, in what will be essentially a continuation of today's race, aware that he has the potential to move further up the order.


This afternoon produced plenty of valuable data in terms of the outright competitive level of the car as well as that relating to tyre management. From what could be seen today, with higher temperatures expected tomorrow, the Grand Prix will be very closely fought but also very exciting.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): I really enjoyed Sprint Qualifying today. Driving flat out for 17 laps is different to what we are used to and I had a lot of fun. One big difference is that you don't have to think about saving tyres and can just go for it. I didn't take any risks but had there been a good opportunity to gain a position, I would have taken it. It was a bit lonely from my point of view, but in a good way because I could keep up with the pace of the car ahead without it pulling way too much.


Overall, I have liked the format of the weekend so far. It gives each day something special to look forward to, especially on the Friday, where you have more to gain with qualifying than you would on a normal weekend. I think it makes things more exciting, for us as well as the fans.


The run on the Medium tyres was quite representative. Even if the fuel level was not the same as it will be for the race, it gave us a good picture of the balance. There is a lot of data to analyse tonight and to learn from for tomorrow.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): More than a Sprint Qualifying it was a "comeback stint" for me today. I'm very far from happy because the car had good pace and I was looking forward to qualifying in a good position for tomorrow.


Unfortunately my race was heavily compromised at the first lap due to what I honestly think was George's mistake. He locked up and hit me in the rear of the car, forcing me off the track and obviously sending me to the back of the field in P19. I wasn't going to give up, so I pushed flat out for the rest of the race, did some good overtakes despite the difficulties at this track and managed to recover to P11. It was a strong comeback, but I would've preferred not to be pushed off.


Anyway, it's part of racing and we still have tomorrow to try and make up more places. The car is ready and so am I. Let's race again.


Laurent Mekies: A good debut for Sprint Qualifying, which provided a show and some interesting points. For our part, Charles produced a great performance to ensure he starts tomorrow's race from fourth, where he qualified yesterday. More importantly, he showed strong pace, running not far behind the three cars ahead of him.


It was a shame for Carlos, who dropped back from yesterday's qualifying position because of a difficult opening lap and a coming-together with Russell, which he could do nothing about. It's even more of a shame given that he had the potential to make up places rather than lose them. At least he put on a great show this afternoon!


These 17 laps have provided us with plenty of data to prepare for tomorrow's race and that's what we are concentrating on from now on. Before this weekend, we knew the difficulties we would face. From what we have seen so far, the work we have done is starting to pay off in terms of performance, both on a qualifying lap and over a long run. But we will only have the full picture after the chequered flag falls.

British GP: Sprint team notes - AlphaTauriPierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm quite frustrated this evening, it was just not what we wanted out there today. We started this weekend badly in FP1 and with only one practice session we couldn't really react to that ahead of Qualifying, then today I've really struggled again. It's very disappointing because I know the car has much more potential but so far, we just haven't managed to get it working here this weekend. We will look at all the data tonight and try everything we can to make our way up to the points in the tomorrow's race."

Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I'm obviously disappointed with today's performance, I'm not finishing in a position that I'm happy with and I'm then starting the race tomorrow from the same place. I feel that this weekend's format is quite difficult for rookies, as you only have one free practice session before Qualifying, which is tough, but I hope the spectators enjoyed this new schedule. We've struggled with the performance of the car this whole weekend, so we just need to go away tonight and review the data so we can learn more for tomorrow's race."


Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "Today was always going to be a challenge.

With yesterday's Qualifying not quite going to plan for the team, both cars were starting out of position in today's Sprint Qualifying and that was always going to be tricky. As expected, a train of cars formed that we needed to make our way through and unfortunately, that just wasn't possible today. It's not been a fantastic day for us, so we've just got to see if we can recover it tomorrow in the longer race. It's been difficult for us this weekend so far, compared to our normal performance, so there's lots of data to review tonight and we'll see if we can extract anything further from the car tomorrow."

British GP: Sprint team notes - Alfa RomeoAlfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN made an improvement in the first ever Sprint Qualifying session in the history of Formula One. Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) crossed the line in 13th and 15th respectively, a net gain of three positions, giving themselves and the team a better chance of scoring points in tomorrow's race.

Starting with Antonio in 14th and Kimi in 17th, the team chose to split the strategies, with the Finn starting on the softer compound in the hope of making ground up in the opening stages. Indeed, that was the case, with Kimi climbing four places in the first lap; Antonio, on the other hand, had a difficult start and couldn't make up any places.


The short race - 17 laps in total - didn't offer many opportunities to mix up the standings, with no strategy and pit-stops at play, and it remained a cagey affair until the chequered flag. Still, with three places made up by the team overall, it's a good step forward that allows us to be in a fighting position when we return to track tomorrow.


In a race spanning the traditional full distance, we can expect our race pace to keep us in contention for points. The Sprint gave us a helping hand, but we now have to finish the job.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It was an interesting first experiment with the Sprint Qualifying format, and to come away from it with a gain in terms of grid positions is definitely a positive. We knew the biggest chance to make up places was at the start and Kimi did really well to make the most of his soft tyres. Unfortunately, Antonio had some wheelspin and couldn't produce one of his strong starts. After that, it was a matter of not losing the ground we had gained: we brought the car home with a result that equals what we would have had with two cars in Q2 on a regular weekend, so we can be satisfied as we prepare for tomorrow's race."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We are better off now than we were yesterday, so I'll take it: I'll be in my best grid position of the year and I have to be happy about it. We started on the soft, but I don't know how much there really is in between the two tyres: in the end, it was important to get the launch right and stay out of trouble and we managed to do it, gaining some places. It's still going to be a long race tomorrow: we will try to keep improving and bring home some points."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It was quite an intense race, pushing from lap one to the flag, but in the end there wasn't a lot of action after the start. Unfortunately my launch wasn't great and I lost some places: then we had a decent pace but very similar to the ones in front of us, and that made overtaking impossible. In the end we only lost one place, so we are still in a good position for tomorrow. Hopefully we can have a better start and, with the strategy and a longer race, we can move up a few places."

British GP: Sprint team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) will start the British Grand Prix from 18th and 19th, respectively, having finished in those positions in Formula 1's first-ever 100km Sprint qualifying event at Silverstone Circuit.

With the grid for Sunday's 52-lap race being set by the classification from the 17-lap Sprint, Formula 1 ventured into new territory when the lights went out and the on-track action began on Saturday afternoon.


Schumacher and Mazepin started the Sprint in 19th and 20th following Friday's traditional knockout qualifying session. Contact between the rookie pairing on the opening lap resulted in a spin for Mazepin at turn three but both cars raced on. Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) spun on lap six dropping the Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing driver down the order, briefly promoting Schumacher up to 18th, but the Mexican clawed some ground back before retiring to the pits on the final lap. As a result, Schumacher finished 18th with Mazepin 19th at the checkered flag.


Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) Racing's Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) won the inaugural Sprint - the Dutchman earning pole position for the British Grand Prix, his fourth consecutive pole and his fifth of the season, and three additional world championship points for the win. Verstappen beat home-town favorite Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) - the British racer securing second on the grid for Sunday's race and two points. Hamilton's Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) teammate, Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas), finished third with the Finn claiming the final point on offer in the Sprint.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "I had a very good launch - one of my best starts this year. The nature of this track means I was on the outside of T2 and then the inside of T3. You try to carry the speed in but the car on the left has a better stopping power and you both try to make the corner but then I had to avoid my teammate. With the pace of the car we have this weekend, the best comparison I have is my teammate and I was a lot faster than him for the first part of the race and then a lot slower for the second part of the race."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "I think we could fine-tune it here and there to try and make it logistically better for us, to be able to change set-ups etc. - but I think for a first try, it was very good. I think for smaller teams it's a bit tougher - we have less time, and we have fewer capabilities compared to other teams who have more people. Unfortunately for us, it was quite lonely out there but still interesting. Now it's up to us to analyze what we can do better to be closer next time."


Guenther Steiner: "For me personally, this was a good experiment - but it's not about what I think, it's about what the fans think. If we come to the conclusion that they like it, then I'm all for it. Our day today was nothing exciting - more of the same I would say - but in the end it was something exciting for this weekend as we had a different format for the race weekend. We learnt something, we have something to think about and we keep a bit of excitement going."

British GP: Sprint team notes - PirelliThe very first sprint qualifying race in Formula 1 history was won by Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) driver Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) from second on the grid, using medium C2 tyres from start to finish. As a result, he claims pole for the British Grand Prix tomorrow and scores an extra three championship points.

Nearly all the drivers used the medium tyre throughout the 17-lap race, run over half an hour with no pit stops. Only four drivers selected the soft: Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) (Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)), Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) (Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo)) and both Alpine drivers.


Ambient temperatures were 28 degrees centigrade at the start of the race with track temperatures of 46 degrees.


The drivers had a final chance to prepare for sprint qualifying during FP2 at midday. With the cars under parc fermé conditions, the teams concentrated on longer runs in preparation for tomorrow's race. Verstappen went fastest on the medium compound - likely to be the favoured starting tyre for the British Grand Prix tomorrow.


The strategy for the 52-lap British Grand Prix is slightly more straightforward than usual because of the sprint qualifying, which has led to different tyre rules. One of them is that drivers are no longer obliged to start on the tyres with which they set their fastest Q2 Friday qualifying times: instead there is an entirely free choice, which means that all the drivers can simply follow the theoretically quickest strategy.


That's going to be a one-stopper: starting on the P Zero Yellow medium C2 tyres and then moving onto the P Zero White hard C1 until the end. An alternative strategy is to start on the P Zero Red soft and then switch to the hard earlier - but starting on the medium offers more flexibility in terms of pit stop timing and requires less tyre management. With more freedom in the tyre choice, the opposite could come into play too: starting on a harder tyre before switching to a softer compound.


What's certain is that a two-stop is definitely slower, but the best option in this scenario would be to use two sets of soft C3s and one set of C2 mediums.


Mario Isola: "Today was a chance to try something different with the first sprint qualifying, and although it was a short race, we already saw some different tactics on the grid with four drivers going against the trend and selecting the soft tyre - including Bottas who started and finished third. Keeping the soft tyre alive in a race where the drivers pushed at maximum from start to finish in warm conditions was clearly a challenge, but Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) made up six places from his start position initially on the softs, before eventually finishing with a four-place gain. The medium C2 coped well with the rapid corners and heavy loads of Silverstone, which is why we expect it to be the most popular choice to start the race tomorrow. Temperatures are forecasted to be even higher for the grand prix, so tyre management will be a factor, as we also saw today during sprint qualifying where there was some blistering as the teams pushed to the limit."

FORMULA 1 PIRELLI BRITISH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Silverstone
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 18 de julio de 2021


Lewis HAMILTON logra una nueva victoria en su circuto, frente a los suyos, en el mítico Silverstone.

Una carrera con unas primeras curvas de lucha espectacular entre Lewis y Max y que terminó en Copse con VERSTAPPEN golpeando a 51G las protecciones.

La bandera roja aparecida para reparar la barrera de neumáticos permitió a los mecánicos reparar los daños que tenía el coche de Hamilton.

El accidente permitió a LECLERC ponerse 1º gracias a su buena salida en la que adelantó a BOTTAS.

En la resalida Hamilton fue mucho más prudente y Leclerc rodó en primera posición hasta las últimas 4 vueltas, cruzando la meta en 2ª posición entre los dos Mercedes.

Tras Bottas cruzaron la meta los McLaren de NORRIS y RICCIARDO y tras ellos, SAINZ al que una mala parada le hizo perder la posición con Ricciardo y la posibilidad de luchar con Norris. De todos modos, gran resultado de Ferrari en un circuito en el que pensaban tener muchos problemas.

Fernando ALONSO ha cruzado la meta en 7ª posición y contento con su carrera. Tras él llegó STROLL, que logró colarse entre los Alpine, ya que OCON terminó 9º.

El último punto en juego ha sido para TUSNODA.

Fin de semana para olvidar para Checo PÉREZ que salió con neumático duro pero paró muy pronto, viéndose obligado a ir a dos paradas y siempre de remontada. En las últimas vueltas, viendo que Hamilton se iba a llevar el punto de la vuelta rapida, hizo una tercera parada para evitar que esto sucediera marcando él la vuelta rápida de carrera. Al terminar fuera de los 10 primeros no puede llevarse el punto pero al menos Hamilton tampoco. Además, está bajo investigación por tocar a RAIKKONEN provocando que se saliera de la pista.

VETTEL tampoco tuvo un buen día. Trompeó en el inicio cuando estaba siendo presionado por Fernando y cayó a las últimas posiciones para terminar retirándose.

Y hablando de Kimi y esa acción con Checo, esta radio es Kimi total. Pobre Julien.



Julien: A shame with Perez, was P10.
Kimi: What?
Julien: I said a shame with Perez, could’ve maybe scored.
Kimi: Maybe.. or maybe we need to make the car faster simply. It’s impossible to fight against them. Save this and save that and try to fight with the other cars. Come on. [mumble]

Lewis Hamilton branded "disrespectful and unsportsmanlike" by furious Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen made his feelings clear as he broke his silence on the high-speed crash which saw him hospitalised as Lewis Hamilton went on to win the British Grand Prix at Silverstone


Max Verstappen has slammed Lewis Hamilton as "disrespectful and unsportsmanlike" for his celebrations after winning the British Grand Prix.

Hamilton was given a 10-second penalty for his role in a high-speed crash which saw Verstappen slam into the tyre barriers on the opening lap.

Verstappen was taken to hospital as a precaution after the incident whilst Hamilton hunted down Charles Leclerc late on to win his home Grand Prix.

The victory sparked wild celebrations at Silverstone - which left a bitter taste in the mouth of Verstappen as he watched on from hospital feeling battered and bruised.

The Dutchman wrote on Twitter (https://www.mirror.co.uk/all-about/twitter) : "Glad I’m ok.

"Very disappointed with being taken out like this. The penalty given does not help us and doesn’t do justice to the dangerous move Lewis made on track.

"Watching the celebrations while still in hospital is disrespectful and unsportsmanlike behavior but we move on."


Hamilton admitted in his post-race interview with Sky Sports that he was unaware Verstappen had been taken to hospital having originally walked away from the crash.

"I didn't know he was in hospital," Hamilton said during an interview with Sky Sports.

He later insisted the incident did not overshadow his win, which could prove a huge moment in the World Championship race.

"Honestly, no it doesn’t [take a shine off it]. This is racing," Hamilton said.

"Of course I would love to be able to race and us to leave each other space and there is plenty of space on the track for us to get around and manage for a long time without colliding with someone.

"But when someone is just too aggressive, these things are bound to happen and there’s not a single driver here that doesn’t know how aggressive a driver can be.

"There’s not really much more for me to say. I hope he’s OK. OF course I would love to have a wheel to wheel battle for the whole race.

“I enjoy racing with him, but I would never back down from everyone and I would not be bullied into being less aggressive.

"Today, this weekend, we needed the points, there was a gap, he left a gap and I went for it."


Red Bull chief Christian Horner slammed Hamilton's "hollow victory" and echoed Verstappen's views that the move was "dangerous".

Horner, speaking to Sky Sports after the race, said: “It shouldn’t be like that, to be honest with you.

“Max has incurred a 51g accident. Lewis Hamilton is an eight-time world champion, he shouldn’t be making manoeuvres like that. It’s unacceptable.

“Thank goodness, the biggest result for us today is that he’s uninjured, he’s having to go to hospital for [precautionary] checks.

“I hope Lewis is very happy with himself.

“He stuck a wheel up the inside in a corner you just know you don’t do that. You just don’t stick a wheel up the inside at Copse, in that corner, in those circumstances.

“He was nowhere near ahead, it was contact, left front to right rear, and the speed they’re travelling, It’s one of the fastest corners in the championship.

“Lewis has got more than enough experience to know that’s unacceptable and, as I say, I'm just very disappointed that a driver of his calibre should make such a move.

“It’s dangerous, he’s put a competitor at risk, it looked desperate and thank goodness uninjured, he’s in hospital getting himself checked out.

“I don’t care what Lewis says, have a look on your own analysis, draw your own comparisons.

“For me, that’s a hollow victory.”

“It wasn’t much of a penalty really, was it,” he added.

GP da Inglaterra – 10ªEtapa do Mundial de Formula 1 – 2021

Uma das melhores corridas do ano, com uma primeira volta marcante e uma recuperando fantástica de Lewis Hamilton, que de uma corrida perdida por uma punição por ter causado uma batida com Max Verstappen, o holandês foi para o muro e Lewis tomou 10 segundos. Mas o inglês fez uma arrancada espetacular para superar Charles Leclerc e conquistar uma grande vitória. O inglês volta à briga pelo título.

Na largada, Hamilton e Leclerc tiveram as melhores largadas que Verstappen e Bottas. Verstappen e Hamilton brigam pela ponta nas primeiras curvas com Leclerc em 3º e Bottas em 4º. A disputa dos dois primeiros colocados do campeonato durou até a entrada da Copse. Lá Hamilton foi passar Verstappen e acabou tocando a roda dianteira na roda traseira do holandês, que saiu da pista e foi direto para o muro. Com tudo isso, Safety Car na pista e logo depois, bandeira acionada. Se aproveitando de tudo isso, Charles Leclerc assumiu a liderança da prova.

Foram mais de 30 minutos para reformar a barreira de pneus e retirar o carro do piloto holandês. Os pilotos voltaram para a pista uma nova largada parada. Nessa largada, Leclerc manteve a liderança sobre Hamilton. Norris aproveitou a largada ruim de Bottas e assumiu a terceira posição. Ainda na primeira volta, Alonso e Vettel disputavam posições, sozinho na Woodcote, Vettel acaba rodando e caindo para a última posição. Foi nesse momento que Hamilton foi punido por 10 segundos nos boxes para serem cumpridos na parada.

A partir dai, Leclerc se manteve na liderança, com Hamilton tentando se aproximar do piloto da Ferrari, mas sem sucesso. A mesma coisa acontecia com Bottas tentando chegar em cima de Norris. Um pouco mais atrás vinham Ricciardo e Sainz jr..

Alonso em 7º vinha segurando Lance Stroll. Sergio Perez vinha na 12ªposição, atrás de Pierre Gasly.

A Mercedes tinha um carro mais rápido nas retas, mas tinha dificuldades em se aproximar nas curvas e isso ajudava a Leclerc e Norris mantiverem a frente de Hamilton e Bottas. Na 15ª e 16ªVoltas, Bottas faz a melhor volta da prova e Hamilton se aproxima de Leclerc e tenta um ataque para cima do Monegasco.

Na 19ªVolta, Raikkonen, Perez, Russell e Vettel vão fazer a parada. Enquanto isso, Leclerc dá a resposta a Hamilton e vantagem entre os dois sobe com a volta mais rápida da prova.

Ricciardo e Norris pararam na 21ª e 22ªVoltas. A parada não foi nada boa para Norris, a equipe demora para colocar os pneus. O resultado disso foi que o inglês da Mclaren perdeu tempo, foi à deixa para a Mercedes parar Bottas na volta seguinte. Foi uma parada perfeita e o finlandês voltou à frente de Norris e ultrapassou Alonso. A tática da Mercedes acabou dando certo. Já Norris tem pela segunda vez teve um contra tempo que acabou tirando posição. No final da volta 23, Norris supera Alonso e tenta seguir Bottas.

Stroll para na 24ªVolta, Alonso faz a parada na volta seguinte e a Alpine não colaborou com o espanhol, uma parada de 5.4 segundo faz que o espanhol volte atrás do piloto da Aston Martin. Porém, o Príncipe das Astúrias acabou recuperando a posição.

Sem conseguir passar Leclerc, Hamilton vai para a sua parada e cumpre a punição de 10 segundos, resultado é que a parada de troca de pneus durou 14 segundos (não foi uma parada perfeita) com isso, Hamilton voltou na 5ªposição. Nesse momento, Leclerc estava em primeiro e Sainz jr. na segunda posição. Faz muito tempo que a Ferrari não tinha dois pilotos na duas primeiras posições.

Sainz jr. para na 29ªvolta, mas a Ferrari mandou muito mal, a parada foi de 12.3 segundos e jogou o espanhol para a 6ªposição. Já Gasly teve uma equipe que o ajudou bem mais, parada de 3 segundos para a troca de pneus.

Leclerc parou na 30ªVolta e voltou 7 segundos a frente de Bottas. A 22 voltas do final, o piloto da Ferrari virou o favorito à vitória. Mas foi nesse momento que Lewis Hamilton começou sua arrancada para a vitória. Primeiro, Lewis chegou no Norris e não teve a menor cerimonia para passar a 3ªposição na 33ªVolta. Enquanto isso, Alonso, Stroll e Perez vinham disputando a 7ªposição, com uma grande corrida do piloto da Alpine.

Hamilton passou a tirar vantagem para Bottas, mas não foi tão fácil tirar os 4 segundo de vantagem que o Finlandês tinha de vantagem, até porque os dois conseguiam tirar vantagem sobre o piloto da Ferrari. Perez faz sua segunda parada na 39ªpassagem.

Na volta 41, Bottas cede ultrapassagem sobre Hamilton e a partir daquele momento, o piloto da Mercedes se transformou de vez num monstro, virando quase 1 segundo mais rápido por volta. Enquanto isso, Vettel foi para boxes e de lá não saiu mais.

Volta após volta, Hamilton tirava mais ou menos 1 segundo. Em poucas voltas, Lewis tinha tirado toda a diferença, era questão de tempo para a ultrapassagem acontecer. Ela veio a 2 voltas e meia do final de prova. Foi mesma curva Copse, onde Hamilton e Verstappen se estranharam, nessa mesma curva, Hamilton se aproveita da escapada de Leclerc e assume a liderança.

A torcida inglesa fez a festa nas voltas finais e assim que Hamilton recebeu a bandeirada veio à explosão de felicidade. Hamilton depois de 5 corridas consegue vencer novamente. Pela 8ªVez na sua carreira na Formula 1, Lewis comemora uma vitória em Silverstone. O campeonato voltou a ficar equilibrado entre Verstappen e Hamilton.

Charles Leclerc teve a vitória nas mãos e venceria se não fosse pelo desempenho monstruoso de Hamilton. O Monegasco teve uma grande largada e liderou quase toda a corrida. Merecia vencer a prova. Valtteri Bottas teve duas largadas ruins e isso impediu de lutar por uma possível vitória, pelo menos conseguiu salvar um pódio e levou a Mercedes a voltar ao campeonato de construtores.

Lando Norris teve mais um resultado prejudicado por perda de tempo, dessa vez sem punição, mas também ficou sem pódio, com o 4ºlugar e continua sendo o único piloto a pontuar em todas as 10 etapas do campeonato. Daniel Ricciardo se aproveitou dos problemas na parada de Sainz jr. e segurou a 5ªposição, seu melhor resultado na temporada. O espanhol teve problema no sábado e no domingo teve uma parada ruim, com tudo isso ainda conseguiu uma 6ªposição.

Fernando Alonso fez um final de semana excelente, levou a Alpine ao máximo que dava para levar, ou seja, em 7ºlugar, segurando o canadense Lance Stroll da Aston Martin que voltou a obter um bom resultado na temporada. Esteban Ocon fez uma boa corrida, com menos brilhantismo que Alonso, mas que acabou rendendo 2 pontos para o francês. Yuki Tsunoda fechou a zona de pontos e manteve a Alpha Tauri pontuando em todas as provas da temporada.

Pierre Gasly parou pela segunda vez em busca de passar todo mundo, mas o tiro saiu pela culatra e o francês ficou em 11º, fora dos pontos. George Russell não conseguiu levar a Williams aos pontos, mas demonstrou que o carro esta melhor do que no começo de temporada, tanto é que Nicholas Latifi correu direitinho e chegou na 14ªposição. Entre eles ficou o italiano Antonio Giovinazzi da Alfa Romeo.

Kimi Raikkonen e Sergio Perez se envolveram em briga por posição, ao brigarem pela 11ªposição os dois se tocaram. O homem de gelo rodou e acabou o dia na 15ªposição, já Perez teve um fecho terrivel para sua péssima corrida, liquidada desde da classificação do sábado e não conseguindo se recuperar no domingo. Resultado foi um 16ºlugar e a perda de 2 posições no Mundial de pilotos.

Pasmem, Mazepin chegou a frente de Mick Schumacher e acabou o dia na 17ªposição. Daqui a 15 dias teremos o GP da Hungria, a etapa que finaliza a primeira metade do campeonato. Essa prova deveria ser semana que vem, ou então, depois das Olimpíadas. Acho que uma corrida na metade dos jogos Olímpicos um tiro no pé, pouca gente vai se ligar que teremos corrida no dia 1º de agosto.

Duas coisas precisam ser faladas. Primeira delas, um carro mesmo sendo mais rápido não consegue passar um carro mais lento, em condições normais. Já a segunda coisa a ser falada é que quando alguém toma ultrapassagem não conseguia mais acompanhar, não tinha a chance de revidar ultrapassagem. Provavelmente o carro do ano que vem precisa e deve acabar com esses dois problemas que a Formula 1 vive.

Honestamente creo que la sanción a Hamilton se quedó corta. Algo que, minimo, le hubiera hecho quedar fuera del podio habria sido mas justo. Mucho me temo que esto pueda enfangar el resto de temporada con lo bien que iba hasta ahora...

Una pena lo de Leclerc, y Sainz que sin la carrera Sprint ni el desastroso pit de ayer, hubiera estado dando guerra delante viendo el ritmo de Ferrari.
Alegra ver a Ricciardo tan cerca de Norris.

Para mi, de nuevo la cruz son Perez y Bottas, con una victoria casi regalada y no tiene ritmo para ello. Porque, si, le piden que se aparte, pero cuando ya es claro que no va a acercarse a Leclerc ni queriendo.

Impresiones de los equipos tras la Carrera:

British GP: Race team notes - MercedesLewis took his eighth British Grand Prix win with a courageous drive in front of a full-capacity crowd at Silverstone. Lewis and Verstappen collided on the opening lap when fighting for the lead into Copse Corner, with Verstappen hitting the barriers and Lewis suffering damage to his wheel rim.

The race was red-flagged as a result and Lewis received a 10 second penalty from the stewards when the race restarted 20 minutes later.


Valtteri lost a position at the start of the race but completed an undercut on Norris on lap 23 after the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) driver suffered a slow pit-stop, and the team reacting with a call to box.


Valtteri then drove faultlessly on a longer-than-intended stint on the Hard tyre, reaching P2 before being asked to let a surging Lewis past to fight with Leclerc up ahead. Lewis completed a fine overtake on Leclerc up the inside of Copse with two laps to go, in a repeat of his lap one move on Verstappen, and took the chequered flag in P1.


Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (185 points) leads the Drivers' Championship by 8 points from Lewis (177) and Lando (113), with Valtteri (108) moving up to in P4. Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) (289 points) lead the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team (285 points) by 4 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): I have been giving my all the past week, working in the factory, just giving it everything to uncover performance in this car with the guys and I am so proud of everyone for continuing to work, even though we had to recover a deficit. Today, as always, I tried to be measured in how I approached the race, particularly battling with Max - he's very aggressive but I was fully alongside him and he didn't leave me any space. Regardless of whether I agreed with the penalty, I took it on the chin and I just kept working. I was just like, "I'm not going to let anything get in the way of the crowd's enjoyment of the weekend, the national anthem and the British flag". I couldn't have done it without the great teamwork from Valtteri and the amazing effort from the team so I'm very grateful and just so happy to deliver this result for the team and the fans.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): The main issue for me today was losing a place at the start; it was the same yesterday so it's something we need to work on. During the race, we only had one option when Lando had a slow pit-stop: we had to pit as well, even though we knew the second stint would be long, and that's how it proved - it was tough towards the end of the race with the tyres blistering badly.


It's good to see every member of the team fighting so hard for this championship.

Today there were surprises everywhere - Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) looked very strong, McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) were good on the Medium tyre so it's great for racing and for the fans. Overall, we've improved the car coming into this weekend but we know there is still work to do.


Toto Wolff: We have seen a dramatic and exciting race today with Lewis winning the British Grand Prix again and catching Charles at the end - I think that was something for everybody. As for the incident between Lewis and Max, it always takes two to Tango and these two competitors were not giving each other an inch. It's a high speed corner and that's why these things are nasty to look at, but there is a clear regulation that is black and white on paper - if the front axle is over the middle of the car on the outside, it is your corner.


This is a championship where the greatest driver of all time, a seven-time world champion is fighting with a tool that is maybe not as good as the other car, driven by an up and coming star who is trying to make his mark. And they collided and crashed. We have seen that in days before and with all the great rivalries in history, and this is what happened today. The most important thing is that Max is fine, and the rest of the race was great.


Andrew Shovlin: A great result for the team, we've had a few tough races but the team has worked so hard over the last few weeks and this is a great reward for everyone. The first half of the race was pretty tough for both drivers on the Medium tyres; in traffic we were limited by tyre overheating and it was impossible to close up sufficiently to attack. We'd planned to go long with both but when Lando had a poor stop, we called Valtteri in early to bank that position.


With Lewis we struggled with a bit too much understeer in the first stint and eventually came in due to the front tyres dropping. On the Hard tyre we could start to push the car to its potential and it was great to see Valtteri able to pull away and Lewis able to close the gap to Charles. We'd expected to catch with a couple of laps to go but Lewis's pace didn't drop and in the end it was a comfortable win despite having to drop the ten seconds with the penalty. We came here to win and to close the gap in the championships so we should be very satisfied with our work this weekend. We're nearly half-way through and there's hardly anything in it, we know that Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) are going to bounce back strong so from first thing tomorrow morning we'll be putting all our efforts into the next race in Budapest.

British GP: Race team notes - Red BullSergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "I'm very disappointed with my weekend and my performance. I wasn't able to make as much progress as expected and found myself in a very difficult position with the tyres. As soon as we were in the DRS train it was impossible to overtake people. I think P7 was possible today, with a couple more laps I think I could have got Lance and Fernando but in the end for strategic reasons we decided to stop to take the fastest lap. It's a weekend for us to forget and we lost a lot of ground in the Championship, we need to regroup, work hard and come back as strong as possible in Hungary. I need to re-watch the incident with Max and Lewis as I haven't seen it, but the most important thing that Max is okay."

Christian Horner: "This is an incredibly difficult way to end the British Grand Prix weekend and it goes without saying that we are all just thankful Max was able to walk away from the car, despite later being taken to hospital for precautionary checks, where he currently remains for observation.


"I have reviewed the footage many times and still cannot help but feel that putting a wheel up the inside at Copse, one of the fastest corners in this World Championship, was ill-judged and a huge risk by Lewis to both drivers. He was not significantly alongside Max as you can see from the point of contact, Lewis' front left to Max's right rear. The move was never on and resulted in a 51G impact for Max. We are in contact with Max and Jos and will provide an update later today.


"For Checo, it was also not an easy afternoon and after starting from the pit lane and making early progress through the field he was stuck in a mid-field DRS train creating high tyre degradation. We therefore opted to pit him towards the end of the race in order to secure fastest lap. We come away with a slim lead in both Championships and you can be sure that once we have had time to reflect on today, all this weekend will do is add fire to our Championship fight."

British GP: Race team notes - McLarenLando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A bit of a frustrating race, but also a lot of positives and in the end I'm happy with the result. I would've loved to have a chance to fight for P3 – the pit-stop meant we weren't able to, but I don't really think it would've changed the end result. A good job by the whole team and thanks to them for giving me a great car this weekend. Fourth and fifth for us is a great result and now for one more race before the summer break. We'll keep it up and try to do better next time.

"It was lovely to see all the fans in the grandstands – it made it a lot more special, and seeing them all waving and cheering on the in-lap was cool as well. Thanks to all of them for coming out to support and making it a more enjoyable and special weekend – hopefully we'll see them again soon."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "From a team point of view, it was a good day, with both cars in the top five. It's the first time this year that I've had a top five, so I'll take some positives from that – definitely a good day.


"I did struggle with outright pace. There were parts of the race where I felt I couldn't do that much more, so I've still got areas to work on with myself, and getting the car more to my liking, but nonetheless it was good to hold off Carlos. He was a lot quicker! He caught me extremely quickly and I knew that if I was mistake-free, I'd have half-a-chance. From that point of view, I'm super happy to end up fifth.


"Finally, it was great to see so many fans back in the stands here today. As a driver, it really means a lot to hear them cheering you on. There's been plenty of McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) caps in the grandstands too, so that's awesome to see. I'm definitely feeling the love."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "Today, in front of a phenomenal crowd at Silverstone, containing a lot of our fans and many of our staff from the MTC, we come away having scored a lot of points in our battle in the Constructors' Championship. The entire team, our colleagues from Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) HPP and both drivers did an outstanding job this weekend to prepare and adapt to the demands of the new sprint format. We improved session by session and leave the circuit having had a very good day.


"We have to say sorry to Lando for the issue with a wheel nut at his pit-stop that took away his chance of fighting for a podium. He drove extremely well for P4, as did Daniel, who took a good step forward for P5, and withstood relentless pressure from Carlos for more than half the race.


"We hope Max is okay after his high-speed crash and send him our best wishes. It's the one thing that mars a special weekend. F1 and the teams did a great job to put on this new format, which provided a great show for everyone, both in the packed grandstands and back at home. We had a lot of our own people with us in the grandstands this weekend and we really felt the support of the many McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) fans.


"There's a lot to learn from this weekend – we'll go away and analyse it thoroughly to see how we can improve the next time we try sprint quali. But first, a weekend off, some much-needed rest for the team and then on to Hungary."

British GP: Race team notes - Aston MartinLance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "I am really happy with my race because we were able to turn around a tricky start to the weekend by finishing in P8 and scoring four points. We have been working to find the right car balance and we had a breakthrough today, which is a great credit to the team and all the effort everyone has put in. The key to the race was making two strong starts either side of the red flag, where we gained several places each time. The strategies were quite similar for the whole grid, making overtaking more tricky, but those starts set us up for a good race. The new format has been a challenge for everyone this weekend, but I think there are positives and we can learn how to maximise the other events with Sprints."

Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "The weekend was looking promising and, without all the problems, I should have finished well inside the points. I am very disappointed to lose the car in a wheel-to-wheel battle with Fernando (Alonso). I am not sure exactly what happened, but I misjudged it, lost grip, and spun. After that, I was right at the back. In the end we did not finish the race because the team retired the car with a cooling issue."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "We had hoped to be coming away from our home Grand Prix with more than the four points we eventually scored, but those four points came our way as a result of a superb drive by Lance, who made up six places this afternoon to convert a P14 grid slot to a P8 finish. No driver made up more places. As for Sebastian, he made a good start when the race recommenced after the coming-together between (Lewis) Hamilton and (Max) Verstappen, and he was dicing with (Fernando) Alonso when he spun at the exit of Turn Seven. He got going again but his race was ended on lap 40 with an engine overheating issue."

British GP: Race team notes - AlpineAlpine F1 Team claimed double points in the British Grand Prix after Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) battled to seventh and ninth place respectively in a thrilling race at a packed-out Silverstone.

The result means Fernando stretches his points-scoring streak to five races with Esteban returning to the points for the first time since Monaco.


Despite finishing in their starting positions, it was far from plain sailing to the chequered flag.


Off the line, Esteban enjoyed the stronger start and was unfortunate to be caught in a tight gap between Fernando and Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel). Both drivers were able to escape without major damage with Fernando holding seventh and Esteban tenth at the end of lap one.


The race was red flagged after an incident between Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) and Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) at Copse, with barrier repairs bringing a 30-minute delay to the race.


At the second standing start, Fernando gained a position to sixth with Esteban maintaining tenth. Esteban then progressed to ninth on lap five after passing Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) with Fernando dropping a place to Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz).


Esteban pitted for new Hards on lap 19, with a slow-stop for Fernando for Hards on lap 24 momentarily costing him a place to Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll), which he soon recovered with a dive into Brooklands.


Esteban dipped outside the points after Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly)'s overtake on lap 29, but with Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) pitting on lap 38 and Gasly on lap 48 for a puncture, Esteban was able to progress his way to ninth, which he held at the chequered flag. Fernando comfortably held Stroll at bay for seventh place.


Thanks to the double points finish Alpine F1 Team regains some ground in the Constructors' Championship compared to its rivals and now heads to the Hungarian Grand Prix hoping to make further in-roads.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It was not an easy race today with everything going on; the red flag, two standing starts, but we're back in the points and that feels good. It was nice to be fighting and getting the maximum from the car. Tyre management was challenging today but we did everything well. Of course, you always want more, but as a team, we have both cars in the points today and that's a great reward for everyone's hard work.

We're back on the pace after three difficult races and we aim to keep this going now through to Hungary. We'll be preparing and working hard for that, to make sure we back this result up. I'm glad Max is OK after the incident, and I wish him a speedy recovery."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was a good result today and I am happy to score more points for the team. It was a very long, hot race so it was very challenging. I thought we managed the temperatures and the tyres in a good way, and we also kept enough of a gap to Lance (Stroll) behind. We made some good calls on strategy and executed everything well. It was a little bit of a different weekend and we'll have to see if the fans enjoyed it.

We now have two weeks until we go again."


Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: "Overall it's been a positive weekend for us; a great Sprint, double points and nice to see Esteban back to form. The race didn't start the best way with Fernando having an off on his way to the grid and damaging his diffuser. We made all the repairs we could on the grid but had to start the race with a slightly damaged car and a performance deficit. Both drivers lost some positions at the start, but it went a lot better on the restart after the red flag. From that point on, it was a very well-managed race from a strategy and pace point of view. Fernando actually managed the pace in a very strategic way by creating a DRS train to protect his position. It was a while since we placed both cars in the points and it allowed us to outscore our nearest competitors in the Constructors' Championship. We also send our best wishes to Max and hope he is OK."

British GP: Race team notes - FerrariScuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) leaves Silverstone with its head held high. On a track that, on paper, should not have suited the SF21, the team came away with its biggest points haul of the season courtesy of a second place for Charles and a sixth for Carlos.

Charles' first podium of the year, the 13th of his career, came after he led for nearly the entire race, starting from the opening lap, when he made the most of a collision between Verstappen and Hamilton, who had been ahead of him up until then. Charles' pace was very good, especially in the first stint on the Medium tyres, managing a reasonable gap to Hamilton up until the pit stop. The situation changed once he switched to Hards, with Hamilton upping the pace and, with three laps to go, he managed to pass the Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) man. Charles was obviously disappointed that the victory had slipped from his grasp with just a few laps to go, but he can still take satisfaction from a truly great performance. That was also the opinion of the fans who made him their "Driver of the Day" with the on-line vote.


Carlos drove a good race and for the second time in two days, he had a great climb up the order. The Spaniard also looked competitive on the Medium tyres, to the extent that he got ahead of Ricciardo by running a longer and faster first stint than the Australian. Unfortunately, a technical problem at the pit stop cost him a lot of time and he found himself once again behind the number 3 car. The Spaniard soon caught up to Ricciardo again, but lacked the top speed to get past, making for a frustrating final part of the race.


The Formula 1 World Championship resumes in a fortnight's time on 1st August with the Hungarian Grand Prix at the Hungaroring (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/6/budapest), on the outskirts of Budapest.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): We have to look at the positives in this type of situation, despite the disappointment of losing the win in the closing laps.


It was a challenging race for me. In the first stint, I had to make some changes on the steering wheel to manage the engine cuts I had. After that, I felt that we had it under control. I managed to pull away from the others and lead for the majority of the race. Unfortunately, Lewis was just more competitive on the Hards. I could feel his pace as he approached me and there was not much I could do.


On the upside, we were quicker than anyone else on the Mediums, which we did not expect. It was impressive. On the Hards, we had a little bit less of an advantage, but still showed a great pace. I am very proud of how we have been working. The team has done an incredible job and fully deserves this podium. They also deserve a win, so we will keep pushing to make it happen if we get the chance.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): Not the greatest race for me, but in general a very good result for the team and many positives to take away. Today our car was strong, the balance was good, and our work with the set-up is paying off.


Two good starts put me in a position to fight with Ricciardo, but passing the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) on track proved to be incredibly difficult. The dirty air through the corners meant I couldn't get close enough and we were lacking a bit on the straights. Once he pitted, my pace in clean air was super strong and I managed to virtually overcut him before my stop.

Unfortunately the pit stop was slow. The team has been great at pit stops all year and these things can happen. I tried my best to overtake the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) during the second stint but we faced the same problem and in the end we came home in P6.


A big congrats to Charles, who nearly managed to secure a win for the team! This race gives us a good feeling for Hungary and for the second part of the season. We keep pushing.


Mattia Binotto: This was a positive Grand Prix for us, not just because of the result, but mainly because of the progress the team has made. After the race in France the whole group reacted well. We know we are not yet at the point to be fighting for the top places on a regular basis, as there are two cars that are faster than ours. But it's important that we are working in the right direction.


Charles drove a fantastic race, following on from excellent performances on Friday and Saturday. I can understand his disappointment because it hurts to lose a win in the closing moments of a race, but he should be pleased with what he achieved over these three days. Carlos drove a solid race. It was a shame that a technical problem with a wheel gun at the pit stop cost him at least one place. Now we are looking ahead to the next race in Hungary. It's a very different type of track to this one and we will be looking to confirm the progress seen over the past few races.

British GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauriYuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I'm quite happy to have come away with a point today. I tried to stick to the plan, really focus on tyre management, and I think I achieved that well. I've struggled a bit throughout the weekend and the different format has made things slightly more difficult for me as a rookie, so I'm pleased to have come away with an all-important point for the team."

Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Honestly, I have no words. We were in the points right until the end, then unfortunately I had a puncture and had to box with five laps to go. It's very frustrating to be coming away with no points after today's race. There are still some positives to take away though, as after quite a difficult weekend, the pace when I was alone in the middle of the race today was quite good, once I'd managed to clear the traffic. We obviously want to continue to fight for better positions, so we'll work hard to understand the areas we've struggled with this weekend and hope to be more competitive again in Hungary."


Jody Egginton (Technical Director): "The pace of the car hasn't been where we expected it to be leading up to the race. Our Qualifying was below our expectation and then in the Sprint Qualifying there was a lot of traffic, so we couldn't make any progress. Today in the race, we managed to use the strategy to extend our first stint on the Mediums, which worked out quite well and allowed us to jump some competitors with both cars. This allowed us to be in a good position to fight for the points with Pierre and then get close to that with Yuki. Pierre looked quite strong against Alpine and Stroll, however it's difficult to overtake here. Unfortunately, Pierre then picked up a puncture from debris on track and was forced to pit for Softs near the end of the race, taking him out of the points. Yuki was in a position to benefit from this and has managed to score a point here. We could recover some of our losses, but our expectation was that we could've been finishing in P8 today so it's still quite disappointing. We've got to go away and get ourselves organised for the next race, as we've demonstrated today the midfield battle is extremely tight and we need to be scoring points each race."

British GP: Race team notes - Alfa RomeoThe first Sprint Grand Prix weekend in the history of Formula One went into the archives with a race that delivered thrills from lights to flag and in which Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN gave a good account of themselves, even though the ultimate reward of points remained just about elusive. Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) crossed the line in 13th and Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen), who had run in the top ten for the whole first stint, was in P15 after a late contact dropped him down the order.

Starting in P13 and P15 after their good work in yesterday's Sprint Qualifying, both Kimi and Antonio opted, as the majority of the field, to start on medium tyres. A good showing in the opening lap saw them running as high as ninth and tenth before the race was stopped because of a high-speed crash, thankfully with no serious consequences, by Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen). At the restart, our duo defended well, then settled in P10 and P13 as the race got into a rhythm.


After the only round of pit-stops in race conditions (both drivers having changed tyres under red flag conditions), both drivers pushed hard to make inroads in the top ten, with Kimi in 12th and Antonio in 15th. Kimi managed to climb back into P10, but the elation was short-lived as there was still some late drama, when a nice battle between the Finn and Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez) ended up in contact, with Kimi spinning and having to recover from 16th. The two Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN cars eventually crossed the line in 13th (Antonio) and 15th (Kimi) - result that unfortunately doesn't reward a battling effort with points this weekend.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "Another race in which our good pace put us close to the points, but in which the reward eventually eluded us. We had a good start, we were able to run in the top ten both before the stops and at the time of Kimi's contact with Checo, but in the end we just missed something to stay ahead: we continue to close the gap with the leaders, even on a track where we expected to struggle a bit more, and that should be a good sign ahead of other circuits where we can hope to extract more from our package."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It wasn't too bad a race until the contact with Perez. We knew it would be a difficult afternoon but we had a good start and were able to run in the top ten for a while. I had a nice battle with Sergio, we went side by side in quite a few corners but suddenly the space was gone: I am not sure what happened but I spun and that was it. In the end, we had to do a lot of defending, we were still missing something to be in the points until the flag. Hopefully the next tracks will play a bit more to our strengths and we can be more competitive."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "It was a long race and not an overly exciting one for me, we had good pace but we couldn't put it together when it mattered. We were in front of Tsunoda before the stops, but got stuck behind Russell and couldn't get through. This wasn't a track where overtaking is easy, and it's quite a disappointment when you see that Yuki eventually finished in the points. We'll need to learn from this and focus on Hungary. It's a track with slow corners and no long straights, so it should fit us a bit better."

British GP: Race team notes - HaasUralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) and Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) classified 17th and 18th respectively at the British Grand Prix, Round 10 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, held at Silverstone Circuit on Sunday.

Schumacher lined up from 18th position, with Mazepin 19th, and were equipped with Pirelli's P Zero Yellow medium tires. Both drivers made strong starts on a frenetic opening lap, with Schumacher gaining two spots and Mazepin picking up one position.

The race was then red-flagged due to a sizeable accident involving championship leader Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen).


Race Director Michael Masi opted for a standing restart, from which Schumacher ran 15th, and Mazepin 18th, before settling into a rhythm at the rear of the train.

Schumacher came in on lap 25 to change onto White hard tires while one lap later Mazepin also boxed to take on the harder compound. Shortly after the pit stop phase Mazepin passed his teammate and they retained their track order through to the checkered flag - finishing 17th and 18th after 52 laps and taking the ninth successive double finish for Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "It was tough - very hot! The weekend has been positive. I was very happy with the balance that we managed to extract out of the car, but we were slow compared to other teams - we were not able to fight anybody today. We obviously weren't able to change the car as much as other weekends, but I think we found a very good set-up early on in the weekend, which perhaps wasn't ultimately the best thing in qualifying but then worked quite well on a track that was degrading like this. I had to push very hard in the beginning to try and get in front because you know that this track is difficult to overtake on, and I used a lot of my tires but then I put in probably my best overtake in the last three years."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "It wasn't easy. Unfortunately, we were struggling with tires and the approach that we had. We were trying not to overheat the tires over the first few laps, and it seems like Nikita was pushing a bit harder in the first few laps and still managed to keep his tires in the window. I will have to analyze how as there was a lot of margin for me to go faster. We will have to learn from it and try and get back stronger in Budapest."


Guenther Steiner: "It was a good race today for us. We finished not where we want to finish but both guys were fighting hard and clean - this is a part of the learning and we want to take this forward. We had good starts. There was a lot of drama at the beginning of the race, and we went through that very calmly and they both delivered. At the moment, this is what is possible. They both fought hard but clean and that's the most important thing for me."

British GP: Race team notes - WilliamsGeorge Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70325/drivers/66/george-russell) finished 12th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 14th in the British Grand Prix. George started 12th and Nicholas 17th, both on the medium Pirelli tyre.

Both cars swapped to a fresh set of the medium compound under the Red Flag, with George subsequently stopping on lap 18 and Nicholas lap 19 for the hard Pirelli tyre.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: We enjoyed a good fight with the midfield teams today and we raced hard in difficult and hot conditions. The early safety car and race suspension made the one-stop race easier than it might otherwise have been, and the race became one of balancing attack and tyre management. It was a shame that we were unable to beat the Alpha Tauri cars having outperformed them on Friday evening, but that is racing, and they are a strong team.


We can take a lot of positives from this weekend and we enjoyed the different format.

Having raced in the heat here in Silverstone, we are well prepared for the next event in Budapest in two weeks' time, which is also likely to be very hot. The nature of the Hungaroring (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/6/budapest) is quite different to Silverstone, but aspects of the tyre behaviour will carry forward.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70325/drivers/66/george-russell): P12 was the maximum today for us. We made a poor getaway initially on the first start but a really good one on the second. Sadly, we had already lost a few positions. When you have 50 or 60 laps in a race the true pace of the car comes out and realistically, we are still slightly slower than Alpha Tauri, Alpine and Aston Martin right now. Defending from those teams was always going to be difficult but we've been racing in the top-12 in the last four races, fighting for points in three of them, so we are making some good progress.


It has been an amazing weekend here at Silverstone with a strong weekend and the support from the home crowd. I wish it was like this every weekend! I am so grateful, and I hope as a team we can continue to perform and give them something to cheer about.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): It was a very hot and physically challenging race. It was all about managing the tyres, and we moved forward after two poor starts off the line so that is a positive. I think we overmanaged the first stint on the tyres, but then had to box to prevent an undercut. The last stint felt OK but it was difficult at the end to move forward and get close to other cars in the dirty air. I am happy overall with my performance and I think it was a decent race for the package we had. There are some positives to take away from the weekend and I'm now looking forward to Hungary.

British GP: Race team notes - PirelliMercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) was the winner, with two tyre changes, of a dramatic British Grand Prix that was paused by a red flag shortly after the start following contact between Hamilton and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) driver Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen). Hamilton started on P Zero Yellow medium C2, changed to another set of mediums during the red flag period after lap two, and then finished the race on the P Zero White hard C1. Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc), who finished second, led until the final laps before being overhauled by Hamilton who was fighting back from a 10-second penalty.

The same basic strategy was used by all the drivers apart from AlphaTauri (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/16/alphatauri)'s Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) (who made an extra stop following a puncture) and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)'s Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez).


Under the red flag rules, teams are allowed to change tyres and repair damage. In total, 13 drivers changed tyres (including Hamilton): but they just swapped the mediums they had originally started the race on for a fresh set of the same compound.


The sprint qualifying format for the British Grand Prix meant that drivers had a free choice of tyres for the start. They all chose to start on the medium C2 tyre, with Perez - who started from the pit lane - being the only car to start on the hard C1.


Temperatures remain high throughout the race, with 32 degrees centigrade ambient and 49 degrees on track. Despite these challenging conditions, the tyres performed well.


Mario Isola: "The race strategy was influenced by the new tyre rules in place for sprint qualifying races, which allow all the drivers a free choice of tyres at the start so that they can follow the theoretically fastest run plans. That's exactly what they did today, with the vast majority moving from the medium to hard. We were then treated to a fantastic duel between two of the top drivers in the sport, who managed their tyres perfectly to deliver a thrilling battle to the end. Now we remain at Silverstone to focus on our next task: continuing the 2022 18-inch test programme, which we will be doing on Tuesday and Wednesday with Aston Martin, Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) and Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull)."

Primero por el ostión de Hamilton a Verstappen y el no ver bandera negra. Pero "como corre en casa...." pues déjalo al chaval que infrinja todo lo que quiera.

Y segundo y más grave aún el NO uso de la mascarilla por parte de NADIE ni de las distancias de seguridad. Pero es que ni de los pilotos, jefes de equipo o mecánicos. (140k espectadores y NI uno con mascarilla)

Me sabe muy mal pero por este hecho yo sancionaria al GP con no disputarse en 2022. Es MUY grave lo que ha sucedido este fin de semana en Silverstone.

Honestamente creo que la sanción a Hamilton se quedó corta. Algo que, minimo, le hubiera hecho quedar fuera del podio habria sido mas justo. Mucho me temo que esto pueda enfangar el resto de temporada con lo bien que iba hasta ahora...

Una pena lo de Leclerc, y Sainz que sin la carrera Sprint ni el desastroso pit de ayer, hubiera estado dando guerra delante viendo el ritmo de Ferrari.
Alegra ver a Ricciardo tan cerca de Norris.

Para mi, de nuevo la cruz son Perez y Bottas, con una victoria casi regalada y no tiene ritmo para ello. Porque, si, le piden que se aparte, pero cuando ya es claro que no va a acercarse a Leclerc ni queriendo.


En mi opinion el GP de UK ha sido una VERGÜENZA para la F1.

Primero por el ostión de Hamilton a Verstappen y el no ver bandera negra. Pero "como corre en casa...." pues déjalo al chaval que infrinja todo lo que quiera.

Discrepo en lo de que Hamilton ostió a Verstappen :sherlock:, y como resultado, en que la sanción fuese mayor :evil5:
Es más, cuanto más lo veo, más me decanto entre el incidente de carrera y esos +10s, ya que los dos son culpables, Hamilton por no apurar más en la curva, y Verstappen por creerse que los demás se le tienen que apartar porque él les está adelantando.

No se puede pasar por alto el hecho de que :
1º-Los dos van bastante pasados de frenada :sherlock:, es lo que tiene alargar demasiado las cosas, se suelen romper :sherlock:
2º El oponente (VER/HAM) en ningún momento te va a dar mi medio milímetro que te haya ganado, da igual que sea en recta, en curva, en el pit lane o el váter:gaydude::risitas:, a modo de ejemplo, fijáos en el hueco que le deja Ver a Ham para pasar junto al muro :sherlock:...
3º El que impacta contra alguien es Verstappen contra Hamilton :sherlock::evil5: y si alguien me dice que Ham se tenía que apartar... :tranqui:... le puedo responder que Verstappen se tira encima :sherlock...:risitas: alomojó es que da demasiados portazos con demasiada vehemencia :pensando:... no es el precísamente el primero. Lo de que no sabía que Ham estaba ahí :sherlock:, es de chiste.:juas:
4º Todo esto ocurre en dos segundos (hasta los peces recuerdan estos intervalos de tiempo :sherlock:), y aunque esto no es descargo para ninguno de los dos, solo indica lo rápido "e instintivo" del asunto :sherlock:.

Y cuanto más lo miro, más estoy entre el incidente de carrera y esos +10s a Ham por estirar y estirar, sabiendo que bloquea la toma de curva,y Verstappen por cerrar la puerta ignorandolo todo :sherlock:, quién es más culpable... :pensando:...

Pues yo creo que no MC.
Verstappen va por delante (el impacto es lateral trasero) y Ham ya ha impactado varias veces con oponentes de la misma forma, la más reciente Austria con Albon.
Los pilotos tienen un pedal que es el freno, y si vas lider no vas a frenar. Pero si vas por detrás puedes levantar el pie. Si no quieres e impactas es cosa tuya, o eso entiendo yo.

McHouserphy
21/07/2021, 16:22
Discrepo, si vas líder no vas a frenar, de acuerdo, pero no lanzas una cerrada de curva dando por sentado que el otro va a frenar para que tu no le des, importante esto último. Es Verstappen el que impacta contra Hamilton.
De acuerdo con que Ham tiene espacio a su dcha, y esto es vital para que Verstappen pudiera pasarle sin impactar, pero no puedes darlo por supuesto :evil5:.
Y por eso mismo, porque aún quedaba pista, le han caído esos +10s a Ham.
Estás absolutamente seguro de que Ham no podía tomar la curva estando donde estaba?:evil5:??

Yo no, por eso tiene también culpa Verstappen, porque un segundo antes estaban a la par, y los dos descolocados por el alargamiento exagerado de la frenada, los dos, y en esa misma maniobra Verstappen impacta contra Hamilton.

No es Hamilton, el que pasado de frenada impacta contra Verstappen cuando está cerrando la puerta, es al revés. :sherlock: Y repito, porque parece que no lo tienes en cuenta, los dos están pasados de frenada. :evil5:

Y por cierto, también puedes abortar el adelantamiento e intentarlo más tarde, llevaban varias curvas alternando los empujones y trazando en paralelo :sherlock:.

De igual manera Ham no puede pretender que quien tiene la trazada normal no la siga, por dejarle espacio a el.

Yo sigo pensando que el británico es mas responsable, por mucho que esté de acuerdo en que Max tiende a olvidarse que los demas tambien corren.

La bandera roja salvó a Hamilton del abandono, según Mercedes (https://es.motorsport.com/f1/news/mercedes-bandera-roja-accidente-hamilton/6633679/)
Durante la neutralización y de regreso en el pitlane, Mercedes inspeccionó el coche de Hamilton para evaluar los daños causados por el incidente con Verstappen, momento en el que se detectó un problema en la llanta de su rueda delantera izquierda, y las piezas fueron debidamente sustituidas.

Dado que el equipo de Hamilton no pudo detectar el posible problema mientras el piloto estaba en la pista, el director de ingeniería en pista de Mercedes, Andrew Shovlin, cree que si la carrera no se hubiera detenido, el daño habría provocado la retirada del coche.

Algunas novedades técnicas captadas en este GP, por la lupa de N. Carpentiers:

La technique à Silverstone : l’ultime mise à jour de Mercedes


Attendue avec impatience par Lewis Hamilton et Valtteri Bottas, la dernière évolution apportée par Mercedes à sa W12 a-t-elle produit les gains escomptés ?

https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/07/f1-technique-angleterre-mercedes_1.jpg

MERCEDES DÉVELOPPE – UN PEU… Après cinq défaites consécutives face à Max Verstappen et Sergio Pérez, Lewis Hamilton attendait avec hâte l’arrivée d’évolutions sur la carrosserie de sa monoplace noire (puisque le reste des pièces est figé (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/reglement-technique-f1-2021-explique/)) – nouveautés qui seront les dernières de la saison selon Toto Wolff.


On a beaucoup glosé sur l’apparente discordance entre les déclarations du patron de Mercedes (qui avait affirmé que la voiture ne serait plus développée) et celles de son bras droit James Allison (qui avait rectifié les propos de de son boss et confirmé d’arrivée de nouveautés). En réalité, il existe toujours un décalage entre ce qui a été développé en soufflerie et ce qui sera installé ensuite sur la voiture. Pour un aileron avant, par exemple, cet intervalle se chiffre à plusieurs mois (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique/developpement-plus-rapide-2017/2/).


Les nouveautés apportées par les ingénieurs de Mercedes se concentrent sur le panneau latéral. Cette pièce, installée de chaque côté de la voiture dans le prolongement du “bargeboard” (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-deflecteurs-lateraux-importants/5/), oriente le flux d’air vers l’extérieur (selon ce qu’on appelle un mouvement d’“outwash”), afin d’écarter le sillage turbulent que produit la rotation des roues avant. Les languettes horizontales qui forment une sorte de store vénitien dirigent le flux d’air vers l’extérieur et vers le haut.


Comme l’indique la comparaison entre les flèches jaunes, le déflecteur vertical à l’avant de la pièce a été raboté de moitié, si bien que les languettes du store vénitien sont désormais sensiblement plus longues. D’autres changements se devinent plus qu’ils ne se voient (tel l’agrandissement probable de la pièce en quart de cercle située sous le boomerang, lui-même sans doute modifié), fautes d’images.


Plus en arrière, le déflecteur coudé qui entoure l’entrée d’air des pontons a été disjoint. La pièce n’est plus faite d’un seul tenant, elle est dorénavant scindée en une ailette horizontale au bord retroussé d’une part et, d’autre part, un élément vertical (comparez les flèches rouges). Leur base a été retravaillée également, comme le signalent les flèches bleues ci-dessus.



https://f1i.autojournal.fr/wp-content/uploads/sites/17/2021/07/f1-technique-angleterre-mercedes_2.jpg


… ET TRÈS (TROP ?) TARD Dans le prolongement de cette pièce, les aérodynamiciens de Brackley ont revu le fond plat (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/), une zone fondamentale pour la performance du diffuseur (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/secrets-diffuseur-formule-1/). Pour résumer les changements apportés, on peut dire que Mercedes a repris des solutions vues sur des monoplaces concurrentes.


Le fameux fond plat aux bords “ondulants” (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/trouvailles-techniques-essais-f1-2021/), typique de la W12, a ainsi été abandonné au profit d’un soubassement aux bords plus rectilignes (comparez les traits verts). Les aérodynamiciens ont également dédoublé la languette qui envoie le flux d’air sur les côtés en le dirigeant vers le haut (selon un mouvement d’“outwash” qui expulse l’air sur les côtés pour détourner, et emporter avec lui, les turbulences provoquées par la rotation des roues avant).


Surtout, le fond plat de la Mercedes accueille de petits déflecteurs verticaux (deux groupes de quatre pièces), des éléments présents sur la plupart des monoplaces depuis plusieurs Grands Prix. Même Aston Martin, qui partage un concept d’assiette plate (ou “low rake” (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/a-quoi-sert-fond-plat-formule-1/2/)) similaire, a installé de tels appendices beaucoup plus tôt. On se demande pourquoi l’écurie a été si longue à développer des nouveautés déjà vues ailleurs depuis longtemps.

MOINS D’AILERON = PLUS DE VITESSE, MAIS… Quoi qu’il en soit, ces évolutions semblent fonctionner. Elles permettent au fond plat et au diffuseur de mieux travailler, c’est-à-dire de générer davantage de charge. Cet appui supplémentaire rend possible, en retour, l’installation d’un aileron arrière moins incliné, qui produit moins de traînée.


Les ingénieurs de Mercedes ont remplacé de l’appui “sale” (c’est-à-dire induisant beaucoup de traînée) par un appui plus “propre”, causant moins de traînée et permettant ainsi de gagner un peu de vitesse de pointe.


Mais est-ce suffisant ? Cette évolution marque un progrès indéniable (notamment par rapport au Grand Prix d’Autriche), même si la W12 utilise toujours un aileron arrière plus chargé que celui de la RB16B, par conséquent plus rapide. Pour tenter de rendre l’aile plus plate, Lewis Hamilton utilisait un aileron sans Gurney flap, cet “outil” souvent utilisé dans la mise au point (https://f1i.auto-moto.com/magazine/magazine-technique/technique/mise-point-formule-1-outils/), alors que Valtteri Bottas en employait un et roulait donc avec un peu plus d’appui. On notera que, de la même façon, Max Verstappen utilisait un demi volet (coupé aux extrémités), contre un Gurney flap complet pour Sergio Pérez.

Ces gains en finesse aérodynamique (rapport appui/traînée) ont permis à Hamilton de signer le meilleur chrono lors de la qualification du vendredi (qui a déterminé l’ordre de la qualification sprint). Mais pour 75 millièmes de seconde seulement, et sans dominer autant lors de la course qualificative du samedi.


La raison ? Intrinsèquement, la Red Bull est plus rapide que la Mercedes, mais la température de la piste vendredi (37 °C) ne lui convenait pas, car son carrossage avait été diminué afin de limiter le blistering des pneus avant (autre signe de cette approche prudente en matière pneumatique : le déploiement de l’ERS du V6 Honda s’interrompait dans Woodcote – ce qui permit à Hamilton de se rapprocher avant Copse – en vue de réduire la dégradation des pneus arrière).


Avec moins de carrossage, la RB16B chauffait moins bien ses gommes sur une piste plus fraîche. En revanche, quand celle-ci était plus chaude, comme lors de la qualification sprint (49 °C) ou pendant la course (47 °C), la monoplace de Max Verstappen était plus véloce (pas en ligne droite mais sur la totalité du tour).


Une supériorité qui n’a pas pu être démontrée dimanche, à cause de la collision entre Verstappen et Hamilton. Il faudra donc attendre le Grand Prix de Hongrie pour avoir un face-à-face complet et se faire une idée plus précise de l’avantage apporté par l’évolution de Mercedes, qui semble ténu et probablement insuffisant pour couper les ailes du Taureau rouge.

RED BULL NE CESSE DE DÉPLOYER SES AILES Moins médiatisée que l’évolution de Mercedes, une nouvelle pièce a été installée sur la Red Bull de Max Verstappen (son équipier recevant en général la nouvelle spécification à la course suivante).


Installé au bord du fond plat, cet appendice comporte trois languettes recourbées vers le haut, installées en escalier. Étant donné sa forme (qui oriente le flux d’air vers le haut et l’extérieur, créant dès lors une dépression en dessous), la mission de la pièce semble être d’extraire de l’air du fond plat, ce qui paraît très étrange pour un profane.


Seul Dan Fallows (l’aérodynamicien en chef de Milton Keynes qui rejoindra Aston Martin dans un an ou deux) et ses collègues connaissent le fonctionnement et le rôle précis de cette drôle de pièce.


Cette mise à jour est la huitième évolution apportée par l’écurie de Christian Horner en sept Grands Prix. Contrairement à Mercedes, Red Bull n’a cessé d’apporter de nouvelles pièces au fil des courses : au Portugal (fond plat, bargeboard, écope de frein diffuseur (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-a-portimao-red-bull-accelere-developpement/)), en Espagne (écope de frein (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-a-barcelone-mercedes-developpe-discretement/)), à Monaco (aileron avant, diffuseur (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-a-monaco-red-bull-peaufine-avantage/3/)), en Azerbaïdjan (ailerons avant et arrière (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-bakou-mercedes-bouton-magique/2/)), pas en France (aucune évolution notée, hormis l’installation du deuxième exemplaire du V6 Honda), en Styrie (diffuseur (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-f1-styrie-alpine/2/)) et, enfin, en Autriche (aileron avant et panneau latéral (https://f1i.autojournal.fr/magazine/magazine-technique/technique-autriche-red-bull-enfonce-clou/)).


Après avoir été battue pendant sept ans par Mercedes, la formation autrichienne a décidé de saisir sa chance de victoire en développant constamment sa monoplace (quel qu’en soit l’impact sur la prochaine saison ?). Il faut dire que l’occasion est historique, Mercedes n’ayant jamais été menacée de la sorte depuis 2014.

Sobre lo que habéis comentado (que por fin he podido leer) sobre el incidente entre Max y Hamilton, discrepo :gaydude: con McH. Vale que los dos llegan pasadicos de frenada pero Max está por delante y Hamilton tiene margen a su derecha, la prueba es por dónde pasó a Leclerc y por dónde iba con Max. Hamilton comentó que, tras la experiencia de la Sprint del día anterior, observaron que o pasaban a Max en la salida, o el ritmo del Red Bull haría que este se marchara, de ahí que fuera como fue.

Todos sabemos lo agresivo que es Max pero hay que reconocer que está mucho más calmado. Sin embargo, a Hamilton se le vió bastante desquiciado. Tras su dominio de los últimos años, no se esperaba tener a estas alturas a alguien por delante en el campeonato y, encima, con vistas a tener una remontada complicada. En su rachita sin victorias resulta que llegan a Silverstone, un circuito en el que suele dominar con soltura. Su «pole-fake» del viernes le dió alas y su segunda posición del sábado lo devolvió a la tierra y salió a por todas porque sabía que en la salida estaba la clave, no tenía varias vueltas para poder adelantar, era una salida a todo o nada.

La sanción de 10 segundos no estoy segura de si es justa o se quedó corta. Sin la bandera roja la habría visto más justa pero con la bandera roja y la absurda norma de que puedan cambiar lo que les dé la gana sin ninguna penalización, esa sanción se quedó en nada. Tambien es cierto que si Checo hubiese tenido un fin de semana decente, habría podido llevarse la victoria él y el no ver en lo más alto del podio a Hamilton, habría parecido algo más justo.

Y sobre lo que comenta Red sobre lo del público sin mascarilla ni distancia pues es lo que dice yorch, que no incumplían ninguna norma de allí. Me suena que leí que para entrar tenían que presentar un test de antígenos negativo, pero no me hagáis mucho caso porque igual lo leí para otro evento. No veo mal que no lleven mascarilla en el exterior, siempre que se guarde cierta distancia y lo que está claro es que allí no había ninguna. Quizá deberían de haber limitado el aforo. :dontknow:

Aquí se compara la trazada de Verstappen y Hamilton en su toque con la trazada que hizo Maximino en Q3.

...

Ya... ya... lo que pasa es que me tienes manía :gaydude::roto2qtemeto::cunaooooo:

A veeeeerrrrrr, que no vale para nada cómo esté cada cual, si nervioso, tranquilo, o catatónico, lo cierto es que los dos están descolocados, la comparacion con las trazadas nornales acaban 20 metros más atrás.

Hamilton podía haber evitado el accidente??, No mientras los dos siguiesen estirando el punto de frenada, o cesar el lift & coast levantando el pié, y de hecho, No habría habido accidente si hamilton hubiese tardado una décima menos :sherlock:, pero el cerrojazo de Verstappen es exagerado en esas condiciones (por la asumción de riesgos tipo kamikaze, o me sale bien o me ostio).

Menos culpable que la desubicación de Hamilton?... :pensando:, probablemente si, pero eso ya es un hilo muy fino para colgar nada, o al menos, yo no lo tengo tan claro.
