Formula 1 British GP schedule at Silverstone

The British Grand Prixthe tenth round of the Formula 1 World Championship, arrives this week with a lot to show, if the solid leader, the Dutchman Max Verstappen (Red Bull), allows it, with the desire to resurface from a Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) protagonist without wanting it this week and linking good performances in the Spanish Carlos Sainz (Ferrari) and Fernando Alonso (Alpine).

A year later, the ‘Great Circus’ is once again the great embarrassment of racism, this time due to the statements that came to light by Nelson Piquet, calling Hamilton “black”. A year ago, after the Englishman’s comeback to win the Grand Prix, and a clash with Verstappen that cost the Red Bull race, that of Mercedes was attacked in the same tone on social networks.

The sporting tension is another this campaign, since the dutch has a comfortable income at the top of the table to defend the title that won the British at the last breath. Verstappen has five victories of the last six races, the other was for his teammate Sergio Pérez, and he is the outstanding leader with 175 points for the 129 of the Mexican, second and with a ‘0’ last Sunday.

Meanwhile, after his third retirement of the season in Baku, Carlos Sainz saw his luck change at the Gilles Villeneuve, fighting for victory until the end. The man from Madrid was less than a second behind Verstappen but he savored a long time later a Sunday of good performance and results, relaunched (102 points) to seek the World Cup podium. Silverstone has a history and it is not the best for a Sainz who will try to change it dressed in red.

Going back to the Spanish, Fernando Alonso, twice champion on the English circuit, arrives with a bittersweet taste from the other side of the pond for an Alpine that is not quite reliable when the points are distributed. The Asturian driver shone on Saturday to achieve second position on the grid but finished seventh “by a miracle”, although once again he hopes to ally himself with the English rain.
