Last time out F1 visited Silverstone, Hamilton got pole position on Friday during the sprint race, but Verstappen won the sprint race and he began the race on the first position.
Max led the race for a short time before a crash with Hamilton and Verstappen was out of the race.
Perez began the race on the last position because he didn’t finish the sprint race so it looked like very bad weekend for Red Bull.
Charles Leclerc led in the grand prix for a long time, Hamilton was second but he got a 10 second time penalty for his crash with Verstappen.
Leclerc was miles ahead in front of Hamilton. After the pitstop the 7 times world champion was flying and chased down Leclerc rapidly.
In the last few laps Hamilton was first because he overtook Leclerc and he won in front of his home crowd. Valterri Bottas finished the race behind Charles Leclerc on the third place.
Sergio Perez in the last laps went for a pit stop and he got the fastest lap of the race but he didn’t get any points because he finished the race on the 16th place.
Redbull wanted to mack sure Mercedes did not get the extra point.
I think this Grand Prix added some fire to the championship fight and the competition will be better and I think it will be one of the best seasons in the 21st century.
