Lance Stroll and his teammate, Racing Point Sergio Perez will fight again for a place on the podium on the occasion of the Grand Prix of Great Britain played on Sunday on the Silverstone circuit should suit their car pink.
In fact, the british route is the one showing the running speed, the highest average among those which are usually retained on a regular schedule. However, in Hungary, during the qualifications, Stroll and Perez were two of the fastest drivers in the two points of detection. Third on the grid, Stroll had then finished fourth the next day on the occasion of the race.
“It is promising to have played the first three events of the attack, showing the pace of our race,” said the Quebecers, according to a press release by the team on Tuesday. We rolled on two circuits are very different in Austria and in Hungary and we have been strong on both. It gives me confidence for the coming races and we can target a good number of points here, too.”
Since six teams are based in the Uk, this race – just as the following, which will be contested on the same circuit – will be a test at home. This is especially true for Racing Point, whose factory is located… at Silverstone.
“It’s great for the team, because it means that she remains in the house, and that there is less travel, which is a definite advantage, because we just had three races in as many weeks, has advanced Stroll. This race at home gives everyone a boost and extra motivation to do well.”
The United Kingdom is considered as the heart of the historic F1. The Grand Prix of Great Britain is part of the calendar since the start of the Championship in 1950 and has never been excluded. It has also been held well before the start of the discipline, since 1926.
The competition of 2020 will, however, be very particular because of the lack of supporters.
“We regret that we are not to have followers everywhere we go, but the supporters and the british are so enthusiastic and are true fools in the oil, argued Stroll. It is as the heart of F1 racing here at Silverstone, and you really feel each time you run in front of these supporters. It is a pity that we can’t experience it this time, but we will try to provide a good race for those watching at home.”
Stroll is currently eighth in the drivers ‘ standings with 18 points, two places and four points behind Perez. The British Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) leads with 63 points.
