Formula 1 at Silverstone: Verstappen still has unfinished business - cars and formula 1

Formula 1 at Silverstone: Verstappen still has unfinished business – cars and formula 1

Let’s get on with Formula 1! The Silverstone Grand Prix takes place this weekend.

A contact between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen (24) at the 2021 Grand Prix caused the Dutchman to fly at more than 250 km/h and hit the track barrier. Despite Hamilton receiving a penalty, he won the race – and Verstappen had to watch from the hospital as his rival celebrated with the British flag. So there is still an open invoice here!

This Grand Prix is ​​an integral part of the racing calendar. Besides Italy, the British Grand Prix is ​​the only race that has always taken place since the inception of Formula 1. Although the tracks have changed over the years, none have been more driven than the legendary Silverstone circuit near London. Convenient: In 1950, the first Formula 1 race was held here.

It took five years before an Englishman could win his first home Grand Prix: Stirling Moss 1955 († 90) in a Mercedes. Convenient: The combination of the two dominates what is currently happening.

No driver has won more British Grand Prix than Lewis Hamilton (37). Hamilton has already racked up eight wins. In addition to the exceptional talent of the British, this is made possible above all by the Mercedes, which perfectly fits the long curves.

Some of these engines must be driven at nearly full speed (Magots and Becketts curves at about 300 km/h). But that doesn’t make it easier, on the contrary: hitting the curves perfectly and staying on the perfect line is essential, each steering movement can cost tenths of a value.
