Lewis Hamilton fresh off his dominating win in Hungary returns home to the UK for this week-end's Pirelli British Grand Prix. This should be interesting to see if some consistency can be generated this week-end and perhaps Hamilton will go for two-in-a-row.

To say I am stoked for this is an understatement.

I waxed my own Silver Bullet this afternoon. And went for the look at me obligatory cruise.

35 C here today. Hot. Perfect for an A/C'd cruise.

Busy weekend ahead so let's try the Thursday picks again

Can't bet against Hamilton at home, Mercs are dominant in general, Verstappen is the only one with a chance to upset the order there. 4th is a crapshoot, Perez will miss this race and that was my first choice

Hamilton
Bottas
Verstappen
Norris

This strategy seems to be working very well for you BSF!

Looks like BSF has the top three pretty much nailed. At least the top three have been corroborated by FP1 results. the 4th place car is going to be the one that could change from race activity to race activity.

That's fine Pachyderm. Bottas is running some pretty fast laps in FP3. We shall see who takes the pole in an hour or two.

Hamilton recovers to take the pole over Bottas. LeClerc sneeks into fourth.

One of the worst I've seen in awhile.

Funny the TV guys kept talking about 44's & 77's right front tires and it was their left ones that went flat.

I wish 44's could have gone down about 10 seconds earlier...

Did anyone else lose the race feed on lap 50?

It came back on at 52.

Strange final lap and GP. Hamilton limps home to take his seventh Pirelli British Grand Prix. Bottas falters completely. Verstappen sqeeks into second followed by LeClerc and Ricciardo who avoided a mess to take fourth.

What a crazy last 5 laps to this one. That safety car was well timed to happen causing a long window with the hard tyres. We'll have to see how the safety cars come out next week, if they don't come at a good time it might be a boring race. So far it looks like unless something crazy happens the top 3 are Hamilton, Bottas, and Verstappen

One of the worst what?

I liked it just fine. Nice seeing Red Bull fuck it up.

dammit!

No Nico today.

I would have loved to see him finally get a podium.

I still can't believe that Red Bull Pitted when Valterri blew the tire. They completely threw away a win. Traded 8 points for 1.

Also surprised that Merc didn't call Hammy in at that point. He had a gap, and with Verstappen pitting it guaranteed it wouldn't be a problem. Pit, one last lap, no worry.

My feed froze on right after Bottas' tire went flat... then picked up on lap 52...
