British GP: Carlos Sainz wins incredible race, Lewis Hamilton Third…“It Feels Great To Be Back On The Fight

Published

on

A Silverstone epic started in dramatic circumstances as a multi-car crash saw Zhou Guanyu’s Alfa Romeo flip upside down and over the tyre barriers, with the Alfa Romeo driver thankfully unhurt after a trip to hospital. After a lengthy red flag, pole-sitter Sainz twice looked to have lost his big chance behind Verstappen early on and Leclerc later, but a Safety Car then played into his hands and he overtook his Ferrari team-mate for the win.

 

 

Ferrari controversially did not pit Leclerc, who had fine pace despite major damage from fighting the Red Bulls at the start, for fresh tyres like Sainz. Hamilton was also right in contention at his home race in a Mercedes that was often fastest on track, but after some feisty battles with Sergio Perez he was forced to settle for third place behind the Red Bull.

 

 

“Lewis was on it today, one of his days but we managed to hold on,” said Sainz, claiming his first win in his 150th start. “I gave it everything,” added an exhausted Hamilton. “They were just too quick for us.” Perez, who suffered early damage from Leclerc and fell to 13th, survived an investigation for his driving as the Mexican, Hamilton and Leclerc were involved in F1’s own version of ‘Wacky Races’ for the final 10 laps after the restart. Not involved in that thrilling fight was Verstappen. The Dutchman took the lead at the start but then suffered a pit-stop-inducing puncture and structural damage to his car. Verstappen, who also had contact with Leclerc, managed to finish the race in seventh, with his title lead over Perez only cut to 34 points.

 

 

Fernando Alonso did get in on the action and finished fifth for Alpine, ahead of McLaren’s Lando Norris. Fellow Brit George Russell was the driver who hit Zhou at the start, enforced by a tag from Pierre Gasly, and had to retire. British-born Alex Albon was caught up in a separate collision, and has gone to hospital for precautionary checks.

 

 

Only 14 drivers finished the race, while Mick Schumacher managed to score his first F1 points for Haas in eighth, very nearly overtaking Verstappen through the final corners.
