Munich/Silverstone - It's done!
The British Grand Prix at Silverstone is coming up - and it promises to be very exciting.
Because: Carlos Sainz is on pole position for the first time in his career in Formula 1.
In addition, the weather in England could be uncomfortable.
It was already raining in qualifying and the weather thwarted Max Verstappen's pole calculation.
The world champion and current championship leader starts from P2.
Charles Leclerc stands behind him and makes the Ferrari sandwich perfect.
Things didn't go so well - again - for Mick Schumacher.

The Haas driver is threatened with the end of his career if he doesn't finish in the points soon.
Or maybe not?
According to his team boss, Schumacher is on the right track despite the recent disappointments and criticism.
"He's improved a lot.
He just has to get over that hurdle of the first points now.
He knows he can do it," said Haas race director Günther Steiner before the Grand Prix at Silverstone on Sunday.
"He just has to be a little more lucky," said team boss Steiner.
After a few accidents in the first races of the season, the Italian publicly counted Michael Schumacher's son.
"He showed in Montréal in the race that he's there.
He has the confidence.
He just has to get the points now to prove that it's possible," said Steiner.
For Schumacher, his second year in Formula 1 is also about his future.
His contract with Haas ends after this season.
The first negotiations are expected for the summer break in August.
