F1 British GP Trophy- Who will win it?
Honestly, the Mercedes drivers look favourite to grab two trophies, and apart from them. Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc secured two and one podium position this season so far respectively, also have the chance to take one at home.
Both Mercedes cars at P1 and P2, whereas Verstappen and Leclerc are at P3 and P4 respectively. Going down in the order, Williams faced a setback when George Russel was penalized for the yellow flag disobedience in qualifying and will start from 20th position on the grid.
Daniil Kvyat was also sent 5 positions down for gearbox violation. Meanwhile, Nico Hulkenberg faced disappointment when his Racing Point car showed technical problems, propelling him to quit the race.
