The fiasco of the Austrian GP post-race penalties left the result of the race in doubt for over five hours after the race. Now, the teams move to the circuit closest to most of their factories – at the legendary Silverstone! Carlos Sainz took his first win there in 2022 but it’s hard to believe he, or Ferrari, could replicate this achievement this season. Leclerc showed decent pace in Austria but, unless Max faces any serious issues, noone seems to be able to beat him anytime soon.
Understandably, the model predicts that Max win take a comfortable win while the other two final positions will be a battle between Perez, Alonso, Hamilton, Sainz and Leclerc. Norris could also be a surprise here given McLaren’s improved pace in Austria.
Bottas was disqualified from the qualifying post-session for failing to provide a sufficient fuel sample and will start last.
