All three British drivers are starting in the top 10. Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton will be on row three together with Lando Norris in the McLaren. George Russell will start from P8 in the other Mercedes W13.

The Pirelli Pole Position Award was presented to Sainz by a British lion: Nigel Mansell, nicknamed ‘Il Leone’ when he was a Ferrari driver. Mansell won the world title in 1992 and won the British Grand Prix four times (as well as the European Grand Prix once in England).

2022 British F1 GP Race Strategy

The quickest strategy for the 52-lap race is going to be a two-stopper, with a few different options on the table.
The P Zero Yellow medium is the tyre to start on, and the quickest strategy on paper is medium followed by P Zero White hard followed by medium. This has the advantage of ensuring that two different compounds are run earlier in the race, opening up strategic possibilities.

For those who don’t have a second set of mediums available, the strategy could be medium-hard-soft, which is also closely-matched – and could be converted to a one-stopper if needed. A one-stopper is possible but hard to manage: this would be medium to hard.

As always, this also depends on which tyres the drivers have left in their allocations, and what the conditions are like tomorrow. It’s expected to be dry, but there is a risk of some rain showers, and the cooler the temperatures, the more the softer compounds are favoured.

  1. Jere Jyrälä

    I hope Sainz gets his maiden win, but more importantly for the WDC that Leclerc would finally start cutting back his points deficit before his championship chance is realistically over.
    However, RBR's race pace is unideal for both, especially under normal circumstances, i.e., dry weather.

    • ReallyOldRacer

      Jere, unfortunately, I think that we can already put paid to the WDC and WCC. RB is the class of the field. Let's hope for some fun between now and the awards dinner.

    Same old same old, now the Damester weighing on Max being booed and Toto , saying its unsportsmanlike, sorry Toto we have an inclusive sport, unsportsMANlike isn't acceptable in 2022 shame on you..., as for Max he couldn't give a sh@t about being booed

    And the Dame saying hes a Chelsea fan , yeah cos they never boo at football matches do they Lewis......!

    You talk some crap Toto-----Being booed is abusive and that's why the emotional sport that is controversial because you're a fan and not a fan of one or the other driver, that's good - but there is a certain limit we shouldn't overstep."

    • ReallyOldRacer

      Don't know about other countries, but in the US we cheer our favorites and boo the other guys unless they do something outstanding and then we give them polite recognition. Sports at the pinnacle is not a place for thin skin.

        Lol. This is what OCD looks like. It can lead to delusion. But Fly Bait is a riot when he makes an ass of himself with his obsession so it's just fun to witness.

  3. shroppyfly

    So 7 am Sunday morning, check the weather there's a 9% chance of rain before and during the race, British summer time ha....Boo Boo Boo, we want sunshine

    Oh and Ror, why would i be moving to Philadelphia I've been meaning to ask you?

  4. Susan

    Booing is universal. However, grownups should behave a little better. What is the point? Be it racing, soccer or any other sport, it just makes the booer look childish and embarrass themselves.
    Good for Verstappen for not commenting. Too many already have about everything. Just race!

    • Shroppyfly

      Some sports have booing and some dont"worldwide" but these aren't 12yr old's they are grown men ,incidentally cheering is fine but. The opposite ie booing isn't? Come on.....!

  5. Shroppyfly

    Thank God the oldies that are around still today campaigned for all those safety improvement......through the years

    Second again the Halo probably saved another driver's life and to think some idiots said the Halo was a bad idea and not necessary before it was introduced

    Oh and here's a thought, another oldie Ron D was solely responsible for carbon fibre safety tubs well done that oldie

    Seems Zhou is ok thankfully

  6. CanadianEh

    Well, if you really want a level playing field, get rid of the DRS!

    There's still enough of a hole in the air behind the car ahead to sling-shot at the end of the straight. Oh, like it used to be done for all those decades.

    DRS represents an unfair advantage, and in fact encourages unwarranted and irresponsible lunges for the apex.

    It's a crutch for marginal drivers.
