British Grand Prix:

    It is now almost evident that Alfa Romeo has taken over Williams’ role as the new backmarkers. Suffice to say, this isn’t quite what Kimi Raikkonen signed up for, and he is furious. Raikkonen and teammate Antonio Giovinazzi are propping up the rear of the grid on F1’s 70th Anniversary. When he spoke to the media after the qualifying session, he was reminded of his previous comments of aiming for points. Talking about why things have not worked out, the Finn simply said, “Still too slow, we can be one place, two places here or there, but it makes no f***ing difference.” He observed that their rivals have become much faster, right from practice all the way until qualifying. However,...
    Romain Grosjean didn’t rake in a lot of glory during last Sunday’s British Grand Prix. The Haas driver made two very risky defensive moves, drawing the wrath of the F1 world and Mark Webber in particular. Grosjean moved under braking and almost took out Carlos Sainz and Daniel Ricciardo in the space of a couple of laps. His risky driving style earned him a black and white (warning) flag.

    Exploding tires made for a fascinating spectacle in what was an otherwise dull British Grand Prix. While fans would’ve enjoyed the many random front lefts falling off, it wasn’t the same experience for some F1 teams. But what was the reason behind those multiple tire failures? Many believed the main cause was debris on track from Kimi Raikkonen’s front wing. While completely plausible, it doesn’t explain why 3 cars suffered punctures on the same tire. “Individual race circumstances” behind F1 tire punctures Well, Pirelli analyzed the root cause behind the volatile tires and revealed two main reasons. The first being, teams opting to stop earlier than usual during safety car conditions, which resulted in a longer second stint. Theoretically, 40...
    Needless to say that the Formula 1 British Grand Prix was a roller coaster of iconic moments. The whole world witnessed the endless drama from the beginning to the end of the race. However, many fans turned a blind eye to some entities losing their cool on the board in the middle of the chaos. One such moment cropped up in the very first lap of the race when Haas Driver Kevin Magnussen was hit by Alex Albon into the barriers, effectively bringing the Danish driver’s race to an end. The FIA looked into the matter and handed the Redbull driver a 5-second penalty. However, that did not sit right with the Haas Boss, Guenther Steiner. The Team Principal to...
    The consistency with the form of Haas Formula One team can be seen in the 2020 season also. The team currently runs second last in the constructors’ championship. They have managed to secure just a point after the 4th race of the season at the Silverstone Circuit, England. Their French driver, Romain Grosjean has not clinched even a single point after the fourth round. Whereas, The Danish driver of the team, Kevin Magnussen managed to score a single point during the Hungarian Grand Prix. While Magnussen’s race ended prematurely, Grosjean received a warning during the race. The driver was driving defensively, which was being problematic for Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo. Both the drivers were on the verge of moving...
    Earlier this weekend, Sergio Perez was forced to pull out of the British Grand Prix after testing positive for COVID-19. As a result, the Racing Point team roped in Nico Hulkenberg to race in his stead. This left many excited because the popular German finally got another chance to prove his mettle. Unfortunately, his rotten luck flared up yet again, starting with him getting knocked out in Q2. On Sunday though, things got much worse as his car refused to fire up and the Racing Point team was forced to pull him out. Both Hulkenberg and the team were dismayed at the prospect of having to sit out and missing their chance at a dream comeback for the German, and...
    What a race that was! F1 fans were probably getting ready to complain about how bad the British Grand Prix was but Pirelli tires had other ideas. Once again proving that he can stay cool under pressure, Lewis Hamilton managed to win the British GP with 3 tires and a Dutchman breathing down his neck. On the last lap of the British Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton’s front left tire delaminated. With Verstappen on fresher rubber closing in, it seemed like Hamilton’s race was over. The 6-time World Champion reflected on an unlikely victory and expressed relief at winning the race. However, contrary to what many would believe, Hamilton revealed that he was calm and composed on the final lap of...
    Well, wasn’t that absolutely mental?! The Mercedes race crew and fans alike would have probably bitten their nails right down to the skin (or bone probably). A race that should have been an easy 1-2 for Mercedes ended 1-11, courtesy of tire trouble. Both Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas had their hearts in their mouths during the last few laps at Silverstone, as their front left tires developed some serious blisters. These would later develop into punctures, nearly sabotaging the whole race for Mercedes. Between the two, Bottas was the one who lost out big time, dropping from second to eleventh! However, Hamilton nearly lost out on a race win! His tire had given up on him just as he...
    During the British Grand Prix, Kimi Raikkonen cut a fuming figure and blew up in his team’s faces. Sometime during the race, the Alfa Romeo team called him in for a routine pit stop. Suddenly, just as he was diving in, a frantic call came in to stay out, but it was too late because he already crossed the pit entry. The annoyed Finn simply screamed back, “It’s too f***ing late now! F***’s sake”. So the team had to service his car and send him on his way at last. In all honesty, things at Alfa Romeo are not so rosy and the team are nearly backmarkers. ALSO READ- “F**king Stupidity” -Watch an Annoyed Kimi Raikkonen Berate Alfa Romeo Over...
    Another race, another disappointment for Sebastian Vettel. Looks like this may as well become a trend that fans will have to get used to for the remainder of the season. The 4-time World Champion, to put it mildly, has had a horrendous weekend in Britain. It began with him unable to participate in FP1 on Friday, followed by a miserly 18th fastest lap time in FP2. It was more of the same on Saturday, as Vettel finished qualifying in P10. So it seemed only natural for a calamitous weekend to end in more disappointment for the prancing horses and the German in particular. Had Bottas and Sainz’s tires not given way, Vettel wouldn’t even have made it into the points....
    Can Lewis Hamilton be stopped? That might be the easiest question to answer after Sunday’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone after Hamilton took home another first-place finish in the British GP. Hamilton earned his seventh career win at Silverstone, extending his own record, and he did so with with a popped tire in the final lap of the race. Luckily for Hamilton, he was 30 seconds up on second-place Max Verstappen. Interestingly, Hamilton wasn’t the only Mercedes driver with tire issues, with teammate Valtteri Bottas having a blowout in the closing laps of the race, allowing Verstappen to overtake him. It also opened the door for Charles Leclerc to take a podium spot after holding firm in fourth all race. Hamilton has now won...

    Can Lewis Hamilton be stopped? That might be the easiest question to answer heading into Sunday’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone. To this point in the F1 season, it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen. Unsurprisingly, Hamilton once again sits in the pole position after a dazzling, dizzying qualifying run Saturday. Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas will start beside him on the starting grid. Hamilton has won his last two races in dominating fashion, with victories at the Styrian and Hungarian GPs in July. Silverstone could prove more of the same. Hamilton has dominated the circuit while behind the wheel for Mercedes, taking home British GP victories in five of the last six years. So, to revisit: Can Lewis Hamilton be stopped?...
    After a delay of almost four months amid the coronavirus pandemic, Formula 1 finally began its 2020 season last month. The modified F1 schedule continues today with the British Grand Prix at the 18-turn, 5.891-kilometer Silverstone Circuit in the United Kingdom.

    Sebastian Vettel’s British Grand Prix weekend seems to be going from bad to worse. After enduring a compromised free practice session, Sebastian Vettel could only muster up P10 in qualifying. With teammate Charles Leclerc putting in a phenomenal lap time to clinch fourth place, it’s hard to ignore conspiracy theories over Vettel’s SF1000. Vettel missed out on FP1 entirely following intercooler issues. Unfortunately, the German had to contend with a loose part near his cockpit during FP2. To make matters worse, the 4-time World Champion was shackled with the same issue in FP3. It can’t get much worse: Sebastian Vettel As a result, Vettel got barely any meaningful running in the buildup to the British Grand Prix. As silly as...
    Not even in his wildest dreams would Nico Hulkenberg have envisaged himself sitting in the cockpit of an F1 car, racing at Silverstone in 2020. Only a couple of days ago, Nico would have been chilling at home, waiting to catch the British Grand Prix on the telly. Suddenly, the German is right in the thick of it. The circumstances of his return have been unfortunate, but Hulkenberg would just want to enjoy himself.

    Racing Point driver Sergio Perez‘s unfortunate COVID-19 result opened the door for a seemingly unlikely candidate. The man to benefit from Checo’s conundrum is his former teammate, Nico Hulkenberg. The German jumped ahead of Racing Point’s reserve drivers, Stoffel Vandoorne and Esteban Gutierrez to the front of the queue. He is confirmed to suit up for the Silverstone-based team for the entirety of the weekend. While Vandoorne had his Formula E commitments, it still didn’t make sense to most as to why Hulkenberg was picked ahead of someone who was earmarked as a reserve driver. Though truth be told, no one was complaining. However, Racing Point’s Team Principal, Otmar Szafnauer, has now spilled the beans on the aforementioned question. Racing...

    It isn’t uncommon for drivers to change their helmet design. However, they are all limited to special occasions and one-offs. Now, Lando Norris has unveiled a new helmet design for his home race at Silverstone this weekend. The talented designer is a 6-year-old called Eva Muttram, and her design reminded the McLaren driver of his younger days. The British youngster is definitely looking forward to this weekend’s race, even though there is nobody to cheer him on. This is because the drivers are set to race behind closed doors. Admittedly, not many are too thrilled at this prospect, but they understand the risks involved in hosting the race. ALSO READ- 2020 F1 British Grand Prix Weather Report and Predictions Lando...
    Just when everything seemed peachy keen in the post-pandemic resumption of F1, the first cause of concern has cropped up. One of the biggest talking points from the drivers’ press conference on Thursday was the absence of Racing Point driver Sergio Perez. The reason for his absence was even more concerning. According to the Silverstone-based team’s official Twitter account, Perez’s latest Covid-19 test has revealed an inconclusive result. They posted a Tweet that read, “Sergio Perez is not at the circuit today following an inconclusive test result. He is self-isolating awaiting the results of a retest.” God forbid if Checo does indeed have the virus, he will not be able to participate in the British Grand Prix on Sunday. This...
