Event: British Grand Prix
Track: Silverstone Circuit

Max Verstappen scored his 8th F1 pole position of his career. The Dutchman did it during the first ever quali sprint for the 2021 British Grand Prix today. The Red Bull driver will start from pole for the first time on Silverstone. It was the 68th pole for Red Bull Racing.

Lewis Hamilton who started from P1 had a very bad start with the Mercedes and Max Verstappen made the best of it and passed him before turn 1. Both drivers had a good battle in the first lap, but Hamilton could not make several passing moves stick.

Nikita Mazepin spun the Haas in turn 3 after he hit his teammate Mick Schumacher and was able to continue.
Fernando Alonso had very good start on the soft tyres. He started from P11 and had passed 6 cars in the first lap.

In lap 5 Sergio Perez spun of the track coming out of  Chapel in the Red Bull. The Mexican driver did keep his car out of the barrier and continued the sprint.

Max Verstappen will start form pole position in the Red Bull tomorrow.

    Get in there Max......

    Today ok its just an extra point lead but he owned Hamster from 30 sec in. LH whinged for more power during the race and after about the concept ,Big today tomorrow for them both Max wins its a 40 point lead, but slightly concerned about the Merc speed now theyve trimmed rear wing, again Bring it on, Alonso good, overall i like the concept .

    Fans of LH will bang on still nodoubt but hes losing it ...

    • ReallyOldRacer

      Yes, better than I expected, only one big loser.....well, two, Checo and the team. Gives MB a chance to make up WCC points tomorrow, and PER will drop a place or two in the WDC. Fun to see the two old guys with the best position improvements. BTW, Goat (or great) No More.

  2. shroppyfly

    Ah right , but being a goats no bad thing , it can eat some of the feminine clothes hes been modeling recently, i do wonder if Lewis is trying to tell us something !!, you know growing his hair , wearing womens clothes, it could be affecting his driving

    Fingers crossed for GR tomorrow to get william's first points in a long while

    • shroppyfly

      GR just cant catch a break a 3 place penalty for clipping sainz, while VB drove a faultless race mmmmmmm, hes your guy Ror, is he doing enough to keep his place?

      • ReallyOldRacer

        IMO, still too early to tell, Shrop'. But it is also too early for the BOTbashers and the poet to put RUS in the chair. BOT is prob the better choice with Sir Lewis, and he continues to perform well (but not great). The risk is that Georgie Boy ends up the next Toto's Ocon. My bet is still HAM/BOT, but ya' gotta' give me odds. BTW, IMO Georgie's explanation of the Sainz punt was malarkey. SAI was well and truly ahead and there was plenty of room.

        • shroppyfly

          Hear what your saying but in Ocons case that was what , now nearly 3 yrs ago?, Lady boy Lewis hadnt so many grey hairs and still dressed reasonably normally, Merc had i suppose more time on there hands, the Botbashers been quiet recently and as for the Poet,I thought she'd left the building, last seen working the street wearing a miniskirt and push up bra calling herself Jaxophine.

          GR i hope can still score today, but Bots playing the team game well for sure , today will be telling .

    It seems Red Bull now have the edge on Mercedes Benz. Verstappen may continue his dominance to the 2021 F1 World Championship.
    There is not doubting Max's super ability in controlling a race car, but if he becomes 2021 World Champion I hope he can learn to control his mouth as well as he controls the car! Some of the garbage that comes out of his mouth at times is unbecoming of a Formula One World Champion.

  4. The Spy

    Apparently Mazaspin got very excited on the first lap thinking he had won until his engineer told him over the two-way that it’s a Sprint Race not Spin.
