They’ll just blame the cars again, like they did in 2013

P5 for young Norris, decent race from Ricciardo too. Albon must have walked under a ladder or kicked a black cat or something lately.

Fair play to LeClerc hes getting something out of that dog of a car unlike a certain German. Very surprised that Stroll had next to bugger all race pace.

Overall....an exciting finish to what was otherwise a bit pants.....roll on next week and a barrage of strategy on overcut/undercut....!

Agreed. Up until the last 5 minutes this was the usual dull and turgid procession of the turbo-hybrid era. No wonder fans are switching off in droves if this is all that the rule makers can serve up.

Thank heavens for Pirelli at least making it moderately interesting at the end. I suppose it’s too much to hope that Pirelli keep this up until 2022......

Has Vettel given up or has the team turned against him?

Shocking how quickly the tyres went from a bit grainy to total disintegration
OK, time for some Arrser to own up! Who was spreading tacks on the track for the last lap? :evil:

4 people were arrested for breaking into Silverstone and displaying and extinction rebellion banner.

I hope they have been reminded that they’ve had their 15 minutes in the spotlight and it’s currently BLM’s turn.

Bit of a strange protest considering F1 will be carbon neutral by 2030.

Russell claimed he had lifted off the throttle to observe the yellow flag, but because he went on to set the fastest lap under double-waved yellows (which require drivers to abort a flying lap) it became an easy decision for the stewards.

"The driver, Russell, explained to the Stewards that he only saw the double yellow flag signal at Turn 7 in his peripheral vision and believed it was just a single yellow," the stewards statement read. "He lifted slightly earlier than he had on his previous lap, but his speed was not 'significantly' slower than previous laps, although he explained that he was in full control of the car and felt that he would have been able to take avoiding action if needed; and further that he was at a similar speed because he was on a faster lap overall.


"The stewards reviewed the team radio and noted that the team warned him that a yellow was ahead. They did not specify that it was a double yellow flag. Further, they did not advise him that he needed to abort the lap, following the Race Director's notes in this regard that he should not be able to set a meaningful lap time. This was, in fact, his fastest lap of Q1.

"The purpose of the Race Director's note is to emphasise the extreme importance of the necessity to follow the flag signals for safety reasons. While the Stewards explored all possible mitigating factors, they ultimately determined that it was the responsibility of the driver to see and follow the double yellow flag signal correctly in a potentially very dangerous situation.

"The team could certainly have helped more in this regard. But ultimately, he could not set a meaningful lap time in this circumstance, and therefore order a five-place grid penalty and three penalty points."
Which explains why he got a penalty, not why it was more severe than Hamilton’s or Norris’. You’re not the sharpest knife in the draw are you?
 
This former fan is switching off because F1 has become a party political broadcast for Lewis Hamilton.
I have been a fan a supporter of Hamilton, until he went political celeb on BLM.
He is a racing driver, and a damn good one given the pole lap he produced, and getting his car over the finish line first.
Stick to car racing please Lewis, celeb politics is not your forte.

Anyone looking for a new Brit to follow - young Jonny Edgar from Cumbria racing in ItalianF4 & ADACF4 Championships this season. Races are live streamed on their websites & videos of past races are on there too.
Brilliant overtake in yesterdays race - as good as any LH has pulled off - without the Tommy Smith salute :)
