After Max Verstappen's surprising victory in Austria, the Formula 1 circuit will be heading for England this weekend. With the race at Silverstone, the NUsport GP game is also preparing for the tenth race of the season.
In the game you put together a team of four drivers each race weekend, and you also predict the top three for both qualifying and the race. You can participate here, a number of tips can be found below.
1. The temperature
Where Verstappen benefited from the heat in Austria, he does not have to hope for temperatures above 30 degrees in England. It seems likely that Mercedes will recover from the poor results in Spielberg, where Valtteri Bottas came third and Lewis Hamilton only finished fifth.
2. Home race
For Lewis Hamilton it is a home race and that usually gives him good results. The Brit has been in pole position four years in a row and has also won the race five times. But: last year he had to let Sebastian Vettel win after an exciting race. Outsider tip: for the high-performing Lando Norris it will be his very first home race.
3. Top speed Ferrari
If it is true that Mercedes is going to dominate, the question is which team will go for the podium. Red Bull has faith, but Ferrari can again benefit from the high top speed in England. “Silverstone is a circuit with many fast turns, through which you go full throttle. Mercedes and Ferrari will then have the advantage, "says Giedo van der Garde in the preview at NUsport.
Even if you do not yet participate in the game, it pays to register. Every Grand Prix you have the chance to win a new round prize and this weekend it is half an hour of outdoor karting . Make sure you have entered your prediction for the qualification. The forecast closes on Saturday at 2.55 p.m.
