British Grand Prix Preview

Published on 5 July 2024 at 20:00

We arrive at Silverstone for the final race of the triple-header and what a way to end it with the British Grand Prix.

After a hot-headed race between Max Verstappen and Lando Norris last weekend in Austria, will we see a replay or something new.

A track length of 5.891km and 52 laps for all 20 drivers but can anyone beat Verstappen’s lap record of 1:27.097 back in 2020?

Silverstone was a former airfield before it hosted the inaugural Formula One Grand Prix in 1950 with the Alfa Romeo of Nino Farina who earned a Grand Slam of pole position, fastest lap and race win.

Sir Lewis Hamilton remains the king of the circuit with eight wins (2008, 2014-2017, 2019-2021) as well as most pole positions with seven.

Last time out, Norris beat Verstappen in Turn one to lead the race for sometime before the Red Bull took the place back and put Norris back to second.

Both Verstappen and Norris held their positions with Hamilton talking third place on the podium.

McLaren and Mercedes seem to be challenging the Red Bull this season but who will come out on top? Could we have an all British podium with the likes of Norris, Hamilton and George Russell?

Or will Max Verstappen stand victorious once again?
