    What a fucking finish. Bottas' front left went and he had to pit, and Verstappen went in for a pit stop late on to get fastest lap.... then Hammy's tyre went 5 or 6 corners out.

    He nursed it home and Verstappen's tyre change blew his chance of winning.

    Amazing finish.

    They are going to have to rethink these tyre strategies for next week.

    Vettel just pottered around like he was going to Aldi for a bit of weekend shopping. Ferrari must be doing their nut.

    Can't call him Grumpy any more as he doesn't seem to give a shit and has been seen smiling profusely.

    FP1 underway, Mercedes in front already and it's only five minutes in.



    Will be interesting to see how many laps they run to see what effect it has on the tyres. It's a lot hotter this weekend than last.

    This is exactly why I wanted this season cancelled. Italy got hammered by Covid and it so it is apparent that that team was not focused on developing the car. This season should have an asterisk next to Hamilton's name on it because clearly he is going to get a cheap free world championship.

    Total garbage.

    You are a fucking idiot snubby.

    They'd be thrashing the opposition anyway because they have the best car and the best driver in the history of the sport.

    On the bright side you should be grateful Grumpy looks like he's joining Aston Martin, with him meandering around the back row of the grid, it might push your shitty Haas team a few more places off bottom spot.

    Bottas took the honours in FP1, and Hammy in FP2.

    They ran quite short stints, 22-odd laps where Ricciardo ran 29 in FP2.

    Looks a bit cooler now, the F2's are about to come out for qualifying.

    Somewhat delayed because apparently Grumpy clouted the kerb and damaged both it and the car.

    On the radio he said "something went in the engine or the gearbox"

    Very poor excuse and one that Ferrari wouldn't choose to use even if you do.

    Maybe I'd be taking the piss if I pointed out that Ferrari brought a new floor for Silverstone, especially as Grumpy just put a big fucking hole in it.

    The Mercedes battling it out in a class of their own, and a brilliant last lap by Bottas gives him pole.

    Pepe Le Pew is down in 7th, meanwhile Grumpy does his best to give Ferrari the finger by puddling around in 12th.

    Great lap by Hulkenberg to get 3rd, with Mad Max alongside him.

    Looks like Mad Max is going to start the race on hard tyres - an interesting gambit, and one that may well pay off if there are a couple of safety cars in the first stint, which is not beyond the realms of possibility.

    I reckon this tyre punt might pay off for Mad Max, all it takes is a safety car at the right time and he's away. And he can switch to Softs for the last stint.

    The big question is, of course, will anyone try a one stop strategy on that track with the expected temperatures?

    I guess, after last week, most will be going for a 2 stop race. This week's hard tyre was last week's medium so mad Max is taking a risk...

    Mercedes will be happy about the cloud around today, may keep the track temperature much lower than expected.

    So much for the cloud 43C on track.

    Tyre and Car management will be critical.

    Apparently the hard tyre is more than a second a lap slower than the soft.

    One safety car though...

    Fucking hell Lewis take your time you've got DRS coming.

    Grumpy has had a spin and is last. He's just taking the piss now.

    Ferrari must be tearing their hair out.

    Well so much for a slow tyre, Mad Max is still in touch with the front two.

    And Hammy's tyres are going to shit.

    Bottas has opened a nice two second gap.

    What safety car? Hammy will have to pit now and Mad Max will take the lead.

    The Mercs are burning through tyres like petrol - even the hard ones.

    Mad Max and The Hulk will be loving it.
