British GP 2023 Predictions

Red Bull look invincible at the moment and they have been very consistent throughout the season. They didn’t have an ideal Austrian GP last weekend as Perez finished fifteenth but Verstappen notched up valuable points for the team by finishing on top of the podium. Other teams have a lot of catch up to do and the reigning champions are expected to dominate the grid once again. However, do keep your eyes on local favourite Lewis Hamilton, who is slowly getting back to his best. P1 for Verstappen, P2 for Hamilton and P3 for Leclerc is our prediction for the weekend.
