Motor racing – Team analysis of the British Grand Prix



Team-by-team analysis of Sunday’s Formula 1 British Grand Prix, the 10th race of the season. The teams are ranked in the order of the championship. RED BULL – Sergio Perez 16, Retired Max Verstappen

Verstappen crashed after colliding with Hamilton at Copse in the first lap. His 33-point lead was reduced to eight. Sunday’s white ended a five-game winning streak for Red Bull and reduced their constructors lead from 44 to four points. Verstappen took three points by winning the very first sprint on Saturday. Perez started last but did the fastest lap, without getting the bonus point because you have to finish in the top 10 to do so. MERCEDES – Lewis Hamilton 1, Valtteri Bottas 3

Hamilton’s record-breaking eighth home win was also the 99th of his F1 career and the fourth of the season. He was given a 10-second penalty for the Verstappen collision, grabbed it and retaliated to pass Leclerc for the win with two laps to go. Bottas obeyed the team’s orders as he was second to let Hamilton pass. MCLAREN – Lando Norris 4, Daniel Ricciardo 5

Norris continued his streak of top-five standings, with nine races in 10, while Ricciardo has achieved his best result of the season so far. Norris is now back in third place overall, Ricciardo consolidating eighth place. FERRARI – Charles Leclerc 2, Carlos Sainz 6

Leclerc took the lead in the first lap after Verstappen exited and remained in the lead after the restart until he was finally caught by Hamilton. The result is the first podium of the season for the Monegasque and the second for Ferrari. They closed the gap with McLaren, third, to 15 points. The race marked the 70th anniversary of Ferrari’s first victory. ALPHATAURI – Yuki Tsunoda 10, Pierre Gasly 11

Gasly suffered a puncture that forced him to stop with five laps to go, dashing his hopes of scoring points. Tsunoda managed the tires well and scored for the fourth time this season. ASTON MARTIN – Lance Stroll 8, Sebastian Vettel retired

Vettel spun and found himself at the back of the field while fighting Alonso. The car was later abandoned with a cooling problem. Stroll moved up from 14th place on the grid thanks to two good starts. ALPIN – Fernando Alonso 7, Esteban Ocon 9

A brace for the Renault-owned team, with Alonso scoring for the fifth race in a row and Ocon back in points for the first time since Monaco. ALFA ROMEO – Antonio Giovinazzi 13 years old, Kimi Räikkönen 15 years old

Raikkonen ran in the points until a late contact with Perez triggered a spin that knocked him down in order. WILLIAMS – George Russell 12, Nicholas Latifi 14

Russell’s search for a first point with Williams continues. The Briton was fined three grid places on Saturday and finished where he started. HAAS – Nikita Mazepin 17, Mick Schumacher 18

Mazepin passed Schumacher and only finished ahead of the German for the second time this season.
