As Formula 1 World Championship is off to England, Britain’s own boy Lewis Hamilton will be eyeing to increase his lead at driver’s championship in his home soil. The Briton has conquered the iconic Silverstone circuit a record 6 times in the last 7 years.
Can the current world champion improve his own record this time? Or will his teammate from Mercedes overtake him in his own ground? As only five points differentiate the two Mercedes drivers, this year’s British Grand Prix will be interesting to watch. Stay tuned with us to find out how to watch this nerve-wrecking race.
After having races in consecutive three weekends, drivers enjoyed a nice break before revving their engines in British soil. This sunday’s race will be followed by the much-awaited 70th anniversary GP in the coming week.
This year, Silverstone will see no audience for the first time in history. Hamilton is still getting used to with closed door races. “It’s going to be super weird. The atmosphere is night and day different and it’s something I’m still coming to terms with.” said Hamilton in an interview with BBC Sports.
Meanwhile, Hamilton is only 5 wins away from Schumacher’s all-time record of 91 wins. Can he own this prestigious honour this season? We’ll have to wait and watch.
