48/52 laps:

Just unbelievably spectacular what Hamilton and Leclerc are showing here!

Now it seems that the Mercedes is over for now and secures 3rd place.

for now!

46/52 laps: INSANE RACING HERE IN SILVERSTONE!

Perez, Leclerc and Hamilton fight for P2 and fight a gigantic duel.

They attack each other in almost every corner.

Perfect for Sainz, who can do his laps relaxed in P1 and is heading towards his first Formula 1 victory.

43/52 lap: The restart clearly goes to Sainz, who swallows Leclerc.

Hamilton has big problems and slips back while Perez is in great form!

40/52 laps:

Safety Car!

Ocon's car gives up the ghost and gets stuck on the start-finish line, which is why the virtual safety car comes and the field moves closer together again.

This promises to be an exciting finish...

34/52 laps:

Hamilton comes into the pits - but Mercedes doesn't do it well!

It takes far too long and the ex-world champion comes out behind the Ferrari.

Bitter for the Silver Arrows.

Mick Schumacher grabs Latifi and is thus virtually in the points!

He would be so blessed.

Short update from the Medical Center!

Zhou has now left this and no longer needs to be examined.

The situation is different for Albon, who has to be taken to the hospital for further examinations.

29/52 laps:

Tension in the fight for 1st place!

Ferrari does not specify a stable order.

Hamilton is really fast, but now he has to pit right away.

Is his lead over Leclerc and Sainz enough?

Now we come to the pit stop time.

The classification is now being shaken up a bit.

Verstappen will not play a role in the outcome of this race.

15/52 laps:

Verstappen apparently still has problems with his car.

The world champion complains to his team over the radio.

It was probably not the tire but the underbody.

That doesn't look good for Verstappen at all...

Perez has to go into the pits and of course loses his place.

Hamilton grabs Norris and sits in P4, which immediately causes a storm of enthusiasm in the stands.

First report from July 4th:

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.

Mick Schumacher disappointed in F1 qualifying - there's a lot to talk about Schumi Junior before the start

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.

Video: Forgot part, steering wrong!

Who made a mistake at Schumacher?

"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.
