Could mixed fortunes for F1's leading Brits turn around at Silverstone?
For the first time in many years, none of the local racers starts among the favourites for the British Grand Prix. But George Russell, Lewis Hamilton and Lando Norris could have reasons for optimism
Formula 1’s return to Silverstone for the 2022 British Grand Prix this weekend will be the latest sell-out event, with the championship currently riding a huge wave of interest. That will feel familiar for those who also attended the 2021 race, which was the first fully open event since the pandemic had forced the long run of races held behind closed or only partially opened doors. This weekend will feature another festival atmosphere, while the paddock itself, a ghost town under the COVID clampdowns, will finally be bustling with activity again.
On the track, though, things are very different in 2022. The new cars have succeeded in making F1 racing closer and less predictable. Red Bull and Max Verstappen arrive once again with a healthy points lead, but this time the title battle is against Ferrari and Charles Leclerc.
Although Ferrari's chances of title glory in 2022 have evaporated, chairman John Elkann expects the team to have chalked up both championships by 2026. Both require drivers to play the team game and, having now become more comfortable with the F1-75, Carlos Sainz may be Ferrari's key to title glory
