IN BRIEF

  • Reigning champion Lewis Hamilton continued his early dominance in the 2020 season as he earned his third consecutive win at last week’s British Grand Prix.
  • Back at Silverstone for the F1 70th Anniversary GP, Hamilton will fancy his chances once again at a track where he has had great success in recent years.
  • Max Verstappen made it three podium finishes in a row last week as he guided Red Bull to second spot and he will also have high hopes of another strong showing.
  • Brit Luke Norris earned fifth place last week to take his tally for the season to 36 points and if he can at least match that finish, he should be able to stay in touch with the top three in the standings.

THE PREDICTION

Lewis Hamilton looks in imperious form and even a puncture did not prevent him from crossing the line in first place at last week’s British Grand Prix. He has won his last three races and the defending champion already looks likely to retain his title. It will take a special drive from the field to topple the Brit this week as the action returns to Silverstone once again and Hamilton can make it four wins in a row to really highlight his dominance.
