This is the second consecutive leg Hamilton and Verstappen finished in two leading positions. Leclerc, after two consecutive empty races, Ferrari’s driver has had the second podium this year with third place in this race.

Ricciardo and Renault have an unexpectedly successful track

Daniel Ricciardo balances his best performance for Renault to fourth place and gives the French team the best results since his return to the F1 team in 2016. Team-mate Esteban Ocon finishes 6th and ‘pocket’ an extra 20 points for the team.

Lando Norris has the third leg to score at home, also the third time he is in the top 5 for McLaren this season. Alex Albon and Lance Stroll both got the first time in the race at Silverstone when they finished 8th and 9th, respectively.

Verstappen returned to the podium at Silverstone after 4 years

Vettel never finished 10th in the main race during the 240 starting stages of his career until the 2020 season. In the past four races, the four-time world champion has finished 10th place twice, in the first leg in Austria and in Silverstone. Thereby, “warhorse” has the second double point of this season.
