British GP at Silverstone Preview

The British GP at Silverstone begins on a subdued note in terms of the World Championship fight, as it is not the close battle that became a highlight of the 2021 season. Instead, Max Verstappen, Sergio Pérez, and Red Bull have been able to comfortably dominate the standings. There is complete control from the Red Bull team and all others are playing catch up.

Ferrari has been able to get it consistently right when it comes to qualifying. This is one of the primary factors that gives Charles Leclerc a great opportunity to even think about competing alongside Red Bull. The Ferrari has been putting very consistent qualifying performances throughout the year. After his podium position in Canada, Carlos Sainz is looking for a second consecutive good result. However, the biggest focus from Ferrari might be to bring reliability into the picture, as they continue to be let down by the reliability woes.

The British Grand Prix odds for backing Lewis Hamilton are at a significant length even with the dominance shown by Hamilton on home soil. Mercedes will bring some important aerodynamic upgrades to Silverstone and the effectiveness of the same remains to be seen.

Who are the strong favourites to win the British GP ?

Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen is looking to pick up his seventh victory of the campaign. His record at Silverstone is quite inconsistent with only one victory on this track. This time around, Verstappen starts as the overwhelming favourite in the Silverstone predictions. Red Bull clearly has the fastest car by a significant margin and Verstappen has also been making very few mistakes.

Charles Leclerc

Charles Leclerc has produced a stunning pace but it is a sad reality that he continues to be let down by his team. Ferrari has gone through plenty of technical glitches while there have also been questionable tactics from the team. Leclerc, though, has been able to get excellent starts thanks to 6 pole positions. He is gunning for his first victory at Silverstone.

Sergio Perez

Sergio Pérez has so far been able to experience a very good second season with Red Bull. Even though the recent retirement from the Canadian GP has contributed to a halt in momentum in the Drivers’ Championship table, Perez is likely to be a strong contender this weekend. The Mexican is looking for a first podium finish at Silverstone. This may be a great opportunity to do the same, as the 2022 car from Red Bull has the pace.

Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton was finally able to show a return to form with a podium finish at the Canadian GP. The 37-year-old has enjoyed most of his outings at Silverstone, which has provided eight victories in nine races since his debut in 2007. Hamilton will be able to benefit from some of the aerodynamic upgrades that are going to the Mercedes for this place. However, he remains long in the British Grand Prix odds.

Carlos Sainz

Carlos Sainz has been able to display plenty of improvement compared to the last campaign. However, he continues to suffer – just like Charles Leclerc – from Ferrari’s lack of reliability as he has already been through three retirements so far this season. After second-place finishes at Monaco and Canada, Carlos Sainz appears to be in a good position to make an impact at the British GP, as per the latest Silverstone predictions. Even though he may not be able to go for a victory, the 27-year-old might be able to move ahead of George Russell in the Drivers’ Championship standings.

British Grand Prix Winner Prediction

Max Verstappen is clearly the strong betting favourite in the British Grand Prix 2022 odds. He is not only the best driver at this moment, but he also happens to be in the fastest car in the paddock. Even though Mercedes has been able to give a glimmer of hope with the arrival of new aerodynamic upgrades, they are unlikely to be challengers for a win. Meanwhile, Ferrari continue to struggle with reliability and they may not be able to go the distance.

British Grand Prix Podium Prediction

Lewis Hamilton will be very keen on putting a strong performance on home soil. Silverstone has been exceptionally good to Hamilton over the years. Even though Mercedes have so far been unable to come close to Red Bull or Ferrari in terms of pace, there may be some improvements on this front at Silverstone. Mercedes have not yet picked up a victory in 2022, but Hamilton might just pick up a 10th consecutive podium finish at Silverstone.

British Grand Prix Pole Prediction

Leclerc is the strong betting favourite for grabbing pole position. He has shown tremendous pace during the qualifying sessions. The only thing letting down Ferrari has been reliability, but it is unlikely to surface during qualification. After having already picked up seven pole positions this season, Leclerc is the best pick for this market.
