F1: Max pole position at Silverstone after winning the sprint race


With the victory in the sprint race, Max Verstappen secured the start from the pole position before tomorrow’s Grand Prix of Great Britain. Luis Hamilton will start second, and Valteri Botas will start from the third place.

The experimental weekend, the first of three planned this year, did not bring any excessive excitement. Yesterday’s “qualifications” and today’s sprint race did not contribute to the atmosphere, but we will have the opportunity to see the same schedule of activities in two more races this season, in Monza and Interlagos. We remind you that in the sprint race, the winner got the pole position in the race on Sunday, and that place will belong to Max Verstappen. The order at the start of the sprint race is determined by yesterday’s training or qualifications, whatever you call that session. The sprint to the first corner went to Max, who overtook Hamilton with a great start and held the first place until the end of the 100km sprint, or 17 laps in the case of Silverstone. Max did a great job and the “catapult” left Hamilton behind at the start, while Botas had an extremely boring race in third place. The sprint race brings some points, but only for the first three, according to the 3,2,1 system. Max won one point more than Hamilton and thus increased the advantage in the general classification by another point before the race on Sunday.

The excellent Leclerc, who did not manage to catch up with Botas by the end of the race, passed the finish line fourth. A good race, maybe the only one in this sprint race was seen behind Leclerc. Alonso had a great start and made up for a lot of positions and by the middle of the first round he settled in fifth place. However, he did not withstand the pressure of other drivers, so by the end of the race he lost two positions to McLaren drivers, Land Norris and Daniel Ricard, and he managed to defend against his old rival, Sebastian Vettel, who passed through the finish line as the eighth.

Russell had a great pace and race in Williams, who finished in ninth place, but unfortunately, that does not mean winning points, but “only” starting from ninth place in tomorrow’s race. However, after the race, Russell was given a penalty of three places, so he will start as 12. The tenth place went to Okon, who withstood the pressure of Sajnc in the last two laps. Sainz had a solid start, but after contact with Russell at the beginning of the race he had to make up for the position because he fell almost to the rear, so Sainz also had an interesting race, and after the end he blamed Russell for the incident for which Russell will have a penalty. of three places at tomorrow’s start. However, Red Bull did not have a great day because Perez had a run off the track and fell to the rear after the check and withdrew from the race, so he will start from the rear tomorrow.

The race for the Grand Prix of Great Britain starts tomorrow at 4 p.m.
