As every Formula 1 fan would know, the British Grand Prix is happening this weekend and it is guaranteed to be an absolute thriller. There is going to be certain drivers who are going to want this win more than anyone, obviously being the British Drivers such as Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, but they will have extremely tough competition from Sebastian Vettel. Currently, Sebastian Vettel is the leader of the Drivers Championships by 36 points and he will look towards extending that lead out of the reach of fellow Formula 1 Drivers.
Lewis Hamilton will love to be able to lift the British Grand Prix trophy just like he did in 2008, but the only difference between that year and this year is that he is now with Merecdes. Hamilton used to race for McLaren where he reigned victor in the British Grand Prix in 2008 and came runner-up in 2010. However, in the past 2 years, he hasn’t done overly well finishing 4th in 2011 and 8th in 2012. This year he faces the usual tough competition from the three drivers who are ahead of him on the leader board – Kimi Räikkönen, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel.
Lewis Hamilton’s team, Mercedes, have had four pole positions from seven races this year, but have only managed to win one when Nico Rosberg impressively won in the Monaco Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton will be desperate to get pole position for this race and pray that he can keep the lead throughout the whole race. However, the only worry for the Brit is that his team’s tyres do wear out quickly meaning he could lose valuable time at Silverstone, which ultimately could cost him a possible victory.
Lewis Hamilton commented excitingly about the British Grand Prix, “I am looking forward to seeing what the car can do. I think the car will go really well. I definitely feel we’ll be competitive through the weekend but I don’t know where the time is being lost on Sunday.” The Mercedes man continued, “I am massively excited about it, and really looking forward to it. It’s been a bit of a long break since the last race, but the build-up to this one is always the most exciting. It’s generally the busiest but it’s also just great to be here and looking forward to seeing the turnout of fans that we have this weekend.”
Lewis Hamilton’s former team, McLaren, are not fully confident that their drivers will be able to accomplish a podium finish in the United Kingdom Grand Prix. This year has been a poor year for McLaren so far since Hamilton left as neither of their drivers, Jenson Button or Sergio Perez, have finished above fifth place in a Grand Prix. They are going to need to step up their game if they are going to challenge for a podium place in this weekend’s British Grand Prix.
