We are back racing this weekend and we are at Silverstone, the home of many F1 teams and three drivers, Russell, Norris and Hamilton! We have a big weekend coming up with 140,000 fans there and not just F1 there either, we have F2 and the W series this weekend.
Can Lewis be victorious in-front of his home crowd? Or will Max extend his lead?… Will Lando Norris achieve another podium? Can George Russell score some points? SO many unanswered questions and I am here for it!!
This weekend at Silverstone we have a special thing happening, on Thursday 15th July, F1 will be unveiling the life-size 2022 car, with a talk through on the machines revolutionary design. This will be streamed on F1’s Youtube channel and Facebook at 15:00pm (BST) and 14:00 (UTC).
Who needs a good weekend?
I would say Lewis, yes he has performed well recently but he really needs a win this weekend! So lets hope there is some upgrades to the Mercedes…
I’d also say Pierre Gasly, he has had a good season and is currently 9th in the drivers championship but I feel like this weekend he will have something more to give. He has a fast car and he knows what his doing with it so I don’t see why not he will finish quite high up!
Predictions for Qualifying-
My top five for qualifying are Pole- Hamilton, P2- Bottas, P3-Verstappen, P4- Norris and P5- Perez.
I’d like to see Daniel end up somewhere in the top 10 and close to his team-mate too, I think it would be a great start to the weekend for the British team. Again, I’d like to see George get into Q3, hopefully the crowd gives him that extra boost…
I feel like Esteban Ocon needs a good quali, he hasn’t had very good past weekends, hopefully the two week break have let him chill and feeling fresh for Silverstone.
