F1 Grand Prix Review: British Grand Prix

F1 Grand Prix Review: British Grand Prix

Qualifying

The cards reshuffled… Well. Slightly. Lewis Hamilton took a slightly less than convincing pole position on Saturday. Though he scored his third straight pole in Britain, Lewis could only claim this one by a mere tenth of a second from Nico Rosberg.

Over half a second down the road and filling the second row were both Williams cars, creating an almost-fairy tale effort for the racing veterans. Shortly after them came both Ferrari’s, this time in a particular order with Raikkonen leading the red front.

Red Bull slotted in with Kvyat being the shining star for the Milton Keynes bunch. He lead junior team driver Carlos Sainz to seventh.

Nico Hulkenberg claimed ninth in his “B-Spec” car. Following him came the second Red Bull of Daniel Ricciardo.
