HomeAutosportWhile Hamilton and “game point”. Grand Prix of great Britain in full on Sportbox.ru
After a pause, “Formula-1” and its series of support will once again host three weekend in a row.
Starts exhausting marathon at “Silverstone”, where 70 years ago began the history “Royal races”. This date is dedicated to the second stage of the English track, which will take place next week and will carry the name Grand Prix’s 70th anniversary. But first up is the classic UK.
The track is long, fast and very demanding of engine power. It is not surprising that over the past seven years, the pilots of “Mercedes” took seven pole positions and scored six victories. To break slim line silver triumphs was only Sebastian Vettel, who heroically rose to the highest step of the podium in the season of 2018.
But now this feat pilot “Ferrari” is unlikely to repeat. The engines of the Scuderia is so “choked” that even in slow-Hungary was not competitive, what can we say about “Silverstone”. Most likely, we will see even more helpless statement in the performance of the red cars.
But will do their best pink machine called “racing point” although everyone already knows what technology lies behind this color. Perhaps on this track the engine would “DD” be ahead of Red bull, which are more suited to slow tracks. Thus, two races in a row at “Silverstone” can significantly affect the balance of power in the Cup of designers.
If we talk about the standings, all the chances to finally bury the intrigue of the championship is Lewis Hamilton. On home soil six times, the British started and many times finished the race in that position. If Lewis won both their home Grand Prix, while his teammate valtteri Bottas will make a misfire and finish below second place, the title can be considered solved. And it’s a month after the start of the season.
It will be interesting to watch the “McLaren”, which dropped slightly in Hungary and therefore is obliged to rehabilitate. As a national hero “Silverstone” will arrive Lando Norris, it is a pity that at this moment, the young pilot will not be able to feel the support of the home crowd.
