Saying. Thank you to all the key workers. Thank you to the nurses. Thank you to the doctors this time, because if, for example, they put a valtteri on the soft he’s gon na overtake lewis it’s term, one right so we’ve got two mercedes in behind max verstappen. What we saw yesterday in the sprint was they tried valve body to silverstone on this special sunday for a british grand prix emery’s in this silverstone history around this 3.66 mile circuit, and we go to beckett center chapel in tricky, wet conditions in 2006 down the outside Of the mclaren at 1993, alan frost, 50th grand prix, the left and 10 to the right brooklyn’s is turn at number seven on the c2 and the c3 don’t expect to see many soft tires throughout the 52 brand new set. Then we talked about he’s got two of them. Brand new set of medium compound tires around these really high speed corners of silver’s in the corners that everybody loves and if they can start as they wish now. Somebody like sebastian vettel, has no new tires of any change for this being a sprint format weekend is that the drivers team at the best of times, but you need your brolly today, not for the rain, but for the sun and how’s it thursday, bernadette collins and Aston, martin, i said what’s what’s, the the thinking behind us so uh. They absolutely clearly were not brand new ones. I saw as they took the blankets might be a bit more durable might might be less prone to blistering.
Max verstappen been given a whole bunch of instructions, don’t forget guys yesterday. He convinced yourself that it’s doing one thing or another that’s, not until you’re, really at full pace but sold out all three days. Yeah. The mercedes are hanging max out to dry. A little bit max has got a mercedes in each mirror, hasn’t he basically – or he probably hopes red bull. What red bull did to them. What mercedes did to red bull with that two stop strategy, yeah it’s out and away, we go once again max. Verstappen gets a decent start, not as good as yesterday. Orlando norris verstappen’s gon na have to weave, like crazy hamilton, got a better drive and this time on the insider comes, and they touch verstappen is out of the race, so that’s a big you’re doing a thick end of a couple of hundred miles an hour. This is the accident, oh and it was, it was the merest of touches, but it was enough and look how the wheel has come loose from the rim as well. The tires come loose from the rim. I said it wasn’t over yeah didn’t. I, as they came out of left field racing incidents decided uh that he’s not going to come in. That is a that’s the site. I did want to see, after a very nasty collision into the tyre barriers max verstappen getting out of the car, but he looks winded and he looks hurt and he’s going to be limping away.
Martin brundle from that accident that’ll be a horrible impact. We’Re allowed to change any parts that are damaged with identical parts of parts, peter pip, nightmare race, for red, bull they’ve got one in the barriers and one hit him by the one, because they can see on the pictures. The front was essentially intact and it’s been told to calm down slightly by michael massey, the race director. You know accent, thank god. He’S walked away unscathed, so hamilton on this straight he’s, actually in front 100. He did get his nose noses from, but max had the inside line and managed to stay in front, but amazingly, just like yesterday, as they came out of lafayette watch max. Thank you it’s good, that we now get these kind of correspondences isn’t it that we that we haven’t had until this year, but i think it also needs to be substantial figures. Isn’T. It yeah absolutely and it’s really hard to put a price on because of all the research uh they touched. Verstappen went off into the barriers around about 180 miles and the tires and conveyor belts rather than an an extra layer. I don’t access. My emails during the race, toto wolff seems pretty cross about it, whether he’s crossing he’s, listening to the same uh, jonathan wheatley christian freedom. On that now, uh in red flag situation, the race will resume that the two warring championship teams, the drama couldn’t, be any higher really here.
It is sergio perez finally makes his way into 19th and hamilton already pointing claire leads them into abby from hamilton and then lando norris, voucher, bottas, then comes lando norris, then valtteri bottas, then danny ricardo on the inside stranger tires and that has rather ruined his race Too long keeps smoking how much of a deficit he needs to make up once he served that 10. Second penalty, yeah. Sorry, it’s, not a 10. Second stop and go it’s, a 10 second penalty, so he will obviously pit again in this race. As we see the alpha tara, gazley was locking up big time down into turn three so as they enable the drs now but uh yeah, it’s it’s a 10 second, which he’ll take as you rally point out at his pit. Stop on the ground, with the full fuel over keep i’ll, keep an eye on that carrot all being told to stay within 10 seconds of lewis hanna the ferrari and make up the deficits that that 10 second penalty is gon na cost him here at silverstone this Afternoon after max verstappen, tangled with lewis hamilton with the williams of george russell in front of him by the uh 10 seconds or then it’s the stop and goes uh that we’re talking about how long could joe vanessa keep perez at bay? They made adjustments to his rear wing in in around nine laps time, but they’re still digesting that penalty down here at mercedes start to fade away an awful lot more quickly, so we’re, seeing quite a bit of tire management.
Remember, because mclaren and ferrari in quite a fight aren’t they for third place best of the rest. Who would could we go and down towards cops and the speed of what’s right after that moment, going through abby on the opening lap of the restart certainly been a great starter hasn’t he give me behind, but as now needed to drop back a bit it’s. So hot here i wonder how close radioed, hamilton and bottas to bring the rear left under control. So this grand prix 2020, where he qualified in the same position on the track for him winning in spa and then winning in front of the fosie as well. Uh. In plan c, a two stopper with different ties going even longer yay, they made their mind up. Eventually, that was a very healthy radio. Just keep doing what you’re doing it will come to you. Thank you. Whoever changed all four wheels. In fact everybody did, but that was the extent of the damage to hamilton’s car in fourth danya ricardo, about five seconds behind currently running in fifth, because the guy you’re trying to overtake also has it rather ruining his progress. Yes, virgo reichen had a massive slide through the first corner. We were on board with gasly at the time red flag period and puts one of the new sets of mediums on he’s. Going again, you can go ahead, continue, keep going hold on to the engine person in the back room.
That knows it’s alpha deep d is putting in some quick times, he’s still only 7.3 seconds off the lead dramatically. Quite angsty isn’t it inside lewis’s, cockpit. With these messages advantage being cut now, now he’s found power again, martin he’s back over that one second already getting a warning flag for track limits. We are trying to solve it with glee, i’m, just looking down to their garage they’re. Just taking this in they’re going to play the long game they know seconds plus and hamilton’s got the penalty to come. He has indeed but uh, particularly. You do worry about the integrity of the tire uh as they lean in at the top behind with the rs. Tyres are okay for plan b. If we caponzo and side so at the moment, norris would struggle to clear a full complement of power. Leclair then, building up a gap again out front open up those blisters just that little bit too quickly and uh. Remember back for sergio perez into stowe might try again at the vale chicane right now in place, but perez on the medium compound tyre don’t forget rikon has switched to how sergio perez got past. Kimmy yeah red bull definitely need pereira to get a decent chunk of points this afternoon consecutive race that he started outside the top nine uh, but in the both previous but don’t, forget lewis hamilton with that 10 second penalty. I think he said again the cut. I wonder if they’ll now change their stretch to get bottas in immediately to take advantage a little bit of a problem with the right rear, yeah there’s about three stabs there from the jack matter from the gun to try and get off alonzo fifth and norris.
Six. Fernando loves that wide line, though norris was losing four seconds in the pit stops to his rival, comes on to the stop that’s, not gon na put him in a load of traffic. There goes lando norris to the stove corner there and an easy pass, then philando, but spark settings, presumably something to do with the engine again. So it really is, as you go on with the shift. So out brings fernando alonso out with lance. So they’ve got to get hamilton in and in fact, they’ve really, if they’re one minute 38 on the leader’s pace, we just had that one deleted for run factor when the temperatures rise it’s the rears they then have to start worrying about the moon is not overwhelming. Stationary ted for 14.2 seconds, he is going to come out to the track clear and thinking about it. If you, if you imagine the seamless ship, also at silverstone, they are running one and two in the british draw. Oh no, there we go, looks like he’s on now. Is it lando norris runs thirst. His career best finishes so far corner at she’s. In that part of the track, northamptonshire is on the other side, dear romania, grand prix. How long can he keep hamilton at bay? Here this afternoon, and of course all of this would not have been a problem running lower wing levels there they are so fast in a straight line, and now we can see second young charles leclair can do up front for ferrari.
I’Ll, just uh go back to that in a moment. Martin, as we see some replays we’ll expect the team to go. Valtteri led him through different strategy. Would you expect valtteri bottom seconds? Norris runs fourth ahead of ricardo science, who had a slow pit, stop and is chasing off and and charlie claire is having to reprogram his zap now, while going into i should fix, it is what you’re saying ted well it’s. Just you know: it’s, like fiddling with one of those lewis hamilton dropping back a bit for potassium is blistering his front left for victory on the three decent tires of one that was uh deflating quite rapidly matt daniel you’re doing well you’re doing well keeping science at Bay ferrari is on its race tires this afternoon. I wonder what he is saying on the team: radio, correct or even back uh a few races going paul rickard, where they had a horrible afternoon burning their tires outside the clear their drivers, bang in for and pushing that team to us. At the end. They certainly haven’t, given up on a podium. Uh have mclaren orlando norris. You know how i like a little bit of symmetry ferrari winning 51 in britain around here in silverstone that ferrari the 375 was displayed. It was that ferrari three, seven, five, whoever drives that before the british grand prix who’s racing for ferrari, might will record the start of a triple header. Then red bull might be very worried indeed, and uh.
Mercedes cannot afford to be the equation on hamilton yeah. It needs to it needs to be really in the next lap. That was one and a half seconds clear of sheryl leclair yeah. I think that puts him. Uh 16th net Music and, as i was mentioning lewis, has been on the radio saying team order do not fight with lewis that’s right uh. Please come to the head of norris isn’t he they’re comfortably, but now the hunt is on this. Is it in the closing stages, 8.3 seconds hamilton chips away at a second, a laugh will arrive on the scene put on for the next grand prix without a penalty, etc, etc. So a couple of laps to try and pull off a move to win the british grand prix. I was on the track. Yeah leclair said that he had some pace in his pocket. Stroll seems to be doing a great job. He might get alonso towards the end of the race uh, but on the last lap, lewis hamilton set the fastest lap of the race. Charles claire martin putin, sonoda perez russell joe bernatsy and latifah hamilton is pushing harder and trying to push daniel ricardo along its driver. In the championship, without a podium so far, this season is currently leading did on that last lap, but it was just to charge up the battery pack a little bit more to go for an odor here. You can see at village Music with max verstappen.
Out of this race, how precious that’s their point of view, helmet marco saying that hamilton should be suspended for a race? Yes, you can. Yes, you definitely can says: bono 4.1, sec and the fans can sense what’s going on because you can start to hear them now. The cheers they’re in their relative paces, you know as soon as he got in the turbulent air. He started to struggle his right front. Tire is blistered quite badly to cars. Those back markers that you’ve been referring to was just a dip to wheel at brooklyn and there’s kimi raikkonen who’s, been under pressure from sergio perez, will help his pace. Yeah kimmy got out of the way pretty quickly didn’t. He have to turn one to let leclair through just three tenths quicker through the middle sector. On this lap. He was three tenths quicker in the first sector on the second flag. First, very much deserves it so lewis. Then the car was moving around quite a lot back and leclair. Then uh la tp lifts right off on the exit of cops, come and see their grand prix. Last year, 140 thousand plus a here at silverstone. One here goes hamilton on lap 50.. Oh jim hamilton was behind, leclair, ran wide and then just got onto a bit of astro turf for a bit of dirty stuff and had to move up martin’s to keep on the curbs and risk for those tires. Having problems yeah and the front left to the end and hamilton now set free is over two seconds clear and that well stops lewis scoring the point rather than getting a point.
I am hungry for more action like this they’re hungry, for more action like this. He wins the british grand prix for an eighth time here itself hold off the other ferrari of carlos science. Will talk about the minor points, the clear nursing, a few engine issues drove beautifully to see silverstone given pilot status, to bring fans? It is liverpool taking on liverpool thanks derek well. Only a few games left now and you have to say, they’ve been playing some fantastic football. This season promotion very much on the cars but it’s vital they don’t get overconfident now and he’s. Up need to put another shift in today, get the three points, and then they can move on to the next game and possession given away and the cross not sufficiently well played in so a throw in here. Firmino possession changes hands the interception there well let’s get more details on the injury situation from our pitch side reporter jeff shreeves 50 50. This one he twisted his knee he’s, been trying out but i’m, not sure he can carry on cheers. Jeff Applause, an example of how to press and a throw in forthcoming filmino man offside anyway, i’ll be at a tight one and the flag does go up. Offside robertson by naldum, went in strongly decisively Applause thiago in the center, making sure nothing untoward happened. Applause, monet, Applause, Applause. Well, we can see here it’s a good finish, but really it’s all about the conservative pressure beforehand, really disciplined working as a team to force a mistake and regain possession high up the pitch.
