Verstappen takes Red Bull’s 11th win in a row

Max Verstappen won the British Grand Prix, extending his lead in Formula One to 99 points. Red Bull’s victory also equaled McLaren’s record of 11 consecutive wins. Lando Norris finished second, making him the top British driver, while Lewis Hamilton came in third.

Verstappen’s win was his sixth in a row and eighth out of 10 races this season. He also secured the fastest lap bonus point, increasing his lead over teammate Sergio Perez. Red Bull’s dominance continued, with McLaren’s Oscar Piastri finishing fourth.

The race at Silverstone marked Red Bull’s first win at the circuit since 2012, and Norris’ podium finish was a significant achievement for McLaren in their home race. George Russell finished fifth for Mercedes, and Fernando Alonso took seventh for Aston Martin.

Alex Albon’s eighth-place finish continued Williams’ recent strong performances, while Ferrari had a disappointing race, marking a full year since their last victory. Verstappen started on pole position but suffered wheelspin at the start, allowing Norris to take the lead. However, Verstappen quickly overtook Norris with the help of DRS.

Norris put up a strong fight but ultimately finished just 3.798 seconds behind Verstappen. He praised the McLaren team’s performance and compared their 11 consecutive wins to the team’s success in 1988 with Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.

The safety car was deployed after Kevin Magnussen’s engine failure, bunching up the pack and allowing for strategic pitstops. Norris and Hamilton engaged in a thrilling battle, with Norris eventually pulling away to secure second place.

The race saw some incidents, including a collision between Nico Hulkenberg and Perez, resulting in Hulkenberg needing a new front wing. Esteban Ocon retired due to a hydraulic leak, and Pierre Gasly also retired, making it a difficult day for the Alpine team.

The British Grand Prix attracted a record-breaking 160,000 fans, with a total of 480,000 attendees throughout the event. Fortunately, there were no protests from ‘Just Stop Oil’ campaigners, who had invaded the track in the previous year.

In conclusion, Max Verstappen’s victory in the British Grand Prix solidified his lead in the championship, while Red Bull’s dominance continued with their 11th consecutive win. Lando Norris impressed as the top British driver, and McLaren celebrated their first podium finish at their home race in years. The race had its fair share of excitement and incidents, but ultimately, it was a successful and memorable event for Formula One.
