Week 4 is in the books for F1 with the completion of the British Grand Prix. Starting from pole, Hamilton quickly gave himself a comfortable lead in the early laps, and never wavered for almost 50 laps as he and Bottas we cruising to what seemed like an easy 1 – 2 podium.
However and incredible final few laps of the 2020 British Grand Prix saw Second-placed man Bottas fall as his tyre deflated on Lap 50, costing him second place, before on the very last lap, Hamilton suffered his own issue. Lewis Hamilton claimed the seventh and possibly most dramatic Silverstone win of his career, despite his left-front tyre letting go with half a lap still to go.
However, with Max Verstappen having opted to pit a few laps from the end to try and claim fastest lap, Hamilton had enough time in hand to just cross the line first, five seconds ahead of Verstappen and the third placed Ferrari of Charles Leclerc.
McLaren’s Carlos Sainz had been set to finish fourth, but his own last lap tyre issue saw him eventually come home P13, allowing Renault’s Daniel Ricciardo to claim fourth, following a late pass on the sister McLaren of Lando Norris and rounding out the top 5.
