British GP This weekend With A Contract Renewal For Silverstone
After a wait of almost two years, the iconic Silverstone track gets a 4 year contract renewal upto 2024.
As the British GP arrives this weekend, the Liberty group decided to extend the Silverstone contract with great support and backing from the fans, teams as well as drivers. Silverstone was in the hanging after they paid their release clause 2 years back, hoping for a better contract offer.
The owners of Formula 1, the Liberty group were planning to get a new track built in the streets of London to replace the Silverstone track on the F1 calendar, representing the British GP. The plan is still in their minds while they gave the Silverstone a contract renewal to keep the British GP in the calendar until a new track is built.
Silverstone hosted the first F1 race in the history and has important memories of the sport associated to it. It also sees the highest footfall at any race in the calendar with 140,000 fans attending the race every year. F1 chairman Chase Carey described the race at Silverstone as “an integral part” of the future of the sport. “We have always said that, if it is to have a long-term future, our sport must preserve its historic venues and Silverstone and Great Britain represent the cradle of this sport, its starting point back in 1950.”
Lewis Hamilton who has a record-equaling 5 British GP victories. Including four victories in succession from 2014 to 18. He would look forward to further his record this weekend.
With the upgrades of Mclaren giving results, Mercedes having issues with the car and Ferrari back to winning ways, this race is worth a watch. A fierce midfield battle is likely between Alfa Romeo and Mclaren. Alfa too have put 2 different upgrades in the last 2 races which have started to pay with first points for both their drivers in the last race.
The battle upfront is going to be very aggressive with the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Valteri Bottas, Charles Leclerc, Sebastian Vettel and Max Verstappen giving their all to win.
