Share this:

Carlos Sainz won the Formula 1 British Grand Prix at Silverstone this Sunday, in an ultra-tough race to the checkered flag.

It is the Spanish driver’s first triumph in the premier motorsport category, further confirming the “good shape” of his Ferrari after the unprecedented achievement of pole position in the tenth race of the World Cup.

Sainz concluded the 52 laps of the British circuit with a lead of 3.779 seconds over the Mexican Sergio Pérez, of Red Bull.

Lewis Hamilton confirmed third place at 6.225 seconds, showing that Mercedes could still have a say in the world championship.

The reigning champion Max Verstappen did not go beyond seventh in his Red Bull but maintained the lead in the drivers’ standings.

The Dutchman leads the World Cup with 181 points, 34 more than Pérez, and 43 more than Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc, who finished the race in fourth place.

The Great Britain GP was interrupted for almost an hour, due to two accidents at the first corner that involved several drivers.

The Chinese Guanyu Zhou, of Alfa Romeo, was the protagonist of the most ostentatious incident, as well as the Thai Alexander Albon, of Williams, but both did not suffer serious injuries.
