Silverstone is well known for its succession of fast and sweeping corners, which load the tyres with sustained forces that peak at 5g. The teams use high levels of downforce, meaning that there are often big vertical as well as lateral forces acting on the tyres at the same time. The straights and braking areas are reasonably short, allowing the teams to run a lot of aero without too much time loss.
Once again, we’ll see a track that suits cars making the most efficient use of their aero package! Red Bull has been showing its pace recently, and Ferrari and Mercedes continue to battle at the front. Bottas won last week in Austria, but with one more lap, it could have easily been Vettel in P1!
We’ll see you on Sunday, July 16th at 2PM for the British Grand Prix!

The Canadian Grand Prix is easily one of my favorite races of the year. The track is considered a power circuit, which will likely suit the Ferrari and Mercedes powered cars this year. The track is no stranger to rain either, which always throws a wrench into the works! Then there’s the track varmints to contend with
