The 2022 Formula One Championships travel to the Silverstone Circuit in the United Kingdom this weekend for round 10 of the 2022 F1 season, the British Grand Prix. Reigning world champion Max Verstappen sees his seventh race win of the current season at Silverstone, a venue where he retired last year. After Verstappen was involved in a serious crash with the Mercedes of British driver and seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, he landed in the guard rails and suffered a 51G crash.
Hamilton was handed a 10-second penalty for his involvement in the horrific accident, but eventually won the race. However, it’s worth noting that Mercedes haven’t been battling for wins so far this season as they’ve struggled with various car-related issues in the previous nine races. Hamilton heads into his home race after putting on a brilliant drive at the last race in Canada and claiming his third podium of the year thanks to a third place finish.
