Sainz WINS in Britain
3rd July 2022
Bonkers! No other word describes the madness that was Silverstone today. Ferrari’s Sainz takes his maiden victory, but a total of 5 drivers were in contention at various points, including a much improved and brilliant Hamilton. Don’t miss the highlights, whether you have already watched it or not!
Elsewhere, we were delighted to see Zhou unharmed from a terrible crash at the first corner. A great drive from Schumacher finally got him registering his first points and a superb 33 bonus point haul in FGP. It would have been 36 if it wasn’t for Verstappen getting his elbows out at the end with his strike Red Bull. Plenty more bonus points around, with 8th to 11th getting 108 between them!
In Fantasy GP terms, we had a podium of Sainz, Perez and Hamilton, with Hamilton taking the fastest lap and a total of 2 safety car periods (the first being the formation lap before the restart, which counted against the race distance). Sainz took a Pole Position in Saturday’s rain as he continues to try and turn his fortunes around. The answer to the bonus points question was A (9th or higher) with Vettel finishing in a marvellous 9th place.
Here’s the complete breakdown of points for Silverstone. Fantasy GP will reopen by midday BST Monday for changes and predictions for the next race in just seven days, where we return at Red Bull Ring in Austria. See you then.
