Max Verstappen continues towards his second world title. The win in Canada put the Dutchman in first place in the Formula 1 Drivers’ Championship after nine races this season with 175 points. The defending world champions won the seventh race of the season with a win in Canada. Verstappen also wants to take 25 points with him in the upcoming Grand Prix. You can read in our whether we expect Verstappen to win Formula 1 GP Silverstone Tip,
The GP at Silverstone is a very special racetrack that the Dutchman has never won. More recently, Lewis Hamilton has dominated Silverstone. Hamilton won seven of the last eight races there. However, the fact that the Mercedes driver is again first in his country this year is utopian due to his automaker’s difficulties.
Because of this, Red Bull Racing and Max Verstappen are also favorites in Great Britain. Red Bull Racing last won in England exactly ten years ago. At that time, Australian Mark Webber won the race for Red Bull. Now it must be the young Dutchman to win the race.

Max Verstappen Forms & Stats
By winning the Canadian Grand Prix, Max Verstappen won seven out of nine races this Formula 1 season. As a result, the 24-year-old Dutchman moves further away from his competitors. Verstappen now has a total of 175 points in the drivers’ standings. Second-placed Sergio Perez is 46 points short. Since 25 points are awarded for each race win, Verstappen is almost two races ahead.
In his most recent victory in Montreal, Verstappen was mainly praised for his mental strength. As road conditions changed due to the changing weather, it became more difficult to maintain a priority driving style. But Verstappen was confident in all areas and thus once again reinforced his already unrelenting confidence.
Charles Leclerc Forms & Stats
After Charles Leclerc started the Formula 1 season as a winner in Bahrain, the 24-year-old Monegasse finished second in the second race in Saudi Arabia – Leclerc and Ferrari were confident at the start of the season. Leclerc also managed to win the third race. Ferrari took advantage of Mercedes’ early difficulties. But the strong initial phase faded away. Recently, Leclerc missed the podium four times in a row. In the last race in Canada, Monegasse finished only 5th. His teammate Sergio Perez is still ahead of him in terms of drivers. Perez has three more points, which is why Leclerc is only third with 126 points.

Sergio Perez Forms & Stats
Sergio Perez did not cross the finish line in Canada and was out for the second time this season. It is said that there was a gearbox failure that inadvertently ended the Mexican race after just a few laps. Perez himself said that he “just lost momentum at the end of turn 7. I don’t know exactly what happened, but I stuck to my move.”
In general, this situation is hopeless for him. Red Bull Sport director Helmut Marko declared: “The gearbox was at the end of its term, but it should have stopped.” Despite the failure, Perez is currently Max Verstappen’s closest follower in the drivers’ standings. The Mexican will be aiming for a podium finish in England to close the gap of 46 points. The racing car is equipped with a new gearbox for the upcoming GP.

Formula 1 GP Silverstone Tip
To understand that Max Verstappen is the biggest favorite to win even in England is not an understatement. It is impossible for Hamilton – as it used to be – to create a sensation in his home country. Former teammate Nico Rosberg said: “No, they can’t win at Silverstone, not at all. They’re still far from the performance of Ferrari and Red Bull Racing. They’re miles away from that.”
The assessment of a former world champion should not be denied. Regarding Verstappen, DTM driver Philipp Eng said that “as a racing driver, it’s about being mentally strong. Nothing can derail him.” We share this assessment of the current Dutchman’s condition and reinforce our belief that Verstappen will win the Silverstone GP.
