There are worldwide! Lewis Hamilton has beaten Max Verstappen by the minimum and will start first in the first qualifying race in the history of Formula 1. The world champion has surpassed the world leader by only 75 thousandths, although an error in the last corner of the last lap has prevented the advantage from being even greater.
After free practice it seemed that Verstappen could deliver an almost definitive blow to the world championship at Silverstone, but Mercedes had saved something for qualifying. It was not a casual result of Hamilton, but he really seemed to be the fastest rider today on the Silverstone track.
Fernando Alonso has been left out of Q3 by 25 thousandths
The proof that Mercedes is much stronger at Silverstone than on previous tracks is that also Valtteri Bottas has been involved in the fight for the first position. The Finnish rider was third, yes, but less than two tenths behind Hamilton and just over one behind Verstappen. Tomorrow it will play a key role.
Let us remember that pole is going to be decided in the short race tomorrow, in which each rider will be able to mount the tire they deem appropriate to give Silverstone only 17 laps. From there the order of the starting grid will come out. It is to understand that Bottas, who does not play the title, can be very aggressive with Verstappen in the first round.
Sergio Pérez, the second Red Bull driver, has delivered by placing himself in fourth position, but very far from the real fight for the best time. Seven tenths have separated him from Hamilton, and six from Verstappen. In his favor could be that he is a specialist in tire management, which would allow him to go more safely with the soft to the sprint race.
Behind, George Russell exhibit. The British Williams rider has excelled in front of his public by sneaking into eighth position, which leaves him on the verge of completing the best classification of his life. And all in a weekend in which he could be confirmed as a Mercedes driver for 2022. Second consecutive Q3.
Russell actually finished ahead of the two Spaniards. Carlos Sainz was ninth, too far from a Charles Leclerc, fifth, who was the best of the rest. On your side, Fernando Alonso stayed just 25 thousandths from overcoming the cut of Q2, so it will be eleventh in the classification.
The two McLaren slipped into Q3, with Lando Norris sixth, just ahead of Daniel Ricciardo, while Sebastian Vettel completed the round with a tenth position. Bad classification of Kimi Raikkonen, eliminated in Q1 and too far from Antonio Giovinazzi. It seems that his career in Formula 1 is coming to an end.
