British GP 2022 Predictions
An intense Verstappen – Leclerc duel is on the cards at Silverstone. The Ferrari driver has to step up and push for a win if he has to cover the gap at the top of the drivers’ championship. The ever-consistent Sergio Perez and George Russell are certainly in contention for a podium finish along with Carlos Sainz.
All eyes will also certainly be on local favourite, Lewis Hamilton, who will be aiming for a record ninth British GP win.
P1 for Max Verstappen, P2 for Charles Leclerc and P3 for George Russell is our prediction for the race at Silverstone.
