Red Bull’s Max Verstappen overcame an early attack from McLaren rival Lando Norris to triumph in an action-packed British Grand Prix, marking his first-ever victory at this event and extending his current winning run to six races.
It was a race of what might have been for Ferrari at Silverstone after Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz were forced to settle for the final points on offer due to their strategies being negatively impacted by a late-race Safety Car.
Leclerc and Sainz started fourth and fifth respectively but earlier stops than a host of rivals meant their charges back through the field were dented when the encounter was neutralised – allowing the cars around them to save time when they visited the pits.
While Sainz pitted for hard tyres just before the Virtual Safety Car and Safety Car that followed, Leclerc came in for a second time to swap from hards to mediums, meaning the duo were seventh and 10th respectively when the action resumed (Formula1.)
