Hello F1 Fans,
Round 10 of the 2017 Formula One Championship brings the teams and drivers to Britain and Silverstone, one of the few remaining power circuits on the F1 calendar.
Silverstone hosted the first Formula One race in 1950 and has been a permanent fixture on the calendar since.
Championship Standing: After an exciting finish in Austria, Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel still leads the Driver's Championship with 171 points followed by Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas with 151 and 136 points respectively. On the Constructor front, Mercedes has 287 points followed by Ferrari with 254 points and Red Bull with 152 points.
The Track: With an average speed of 140 mph, Silverstone is one of the fastest circuits on the F1 calendar. Only one of its 18 corners is taken at less than 60 mph; the remainder are all medium- or high-speed, with the renowned Copse-Maggotts-Becketts sequence located in the middle sector. The cars spend over 60 percent of a lap at full throttle, featuring some of the highest-speed corners in F1. On the other hand, Silverstone is not demanding on the brakes. Drivers brake for only around eight percent of the time, recovering the maximum allowed amount of energy through the MGU-K.
Tire allocation: Pirelli will allocate the White medium, Yellow soft and Red supersoft tires for Silverstone.
Race will start at 08:00 AM EDT with the pre-race starting at 07:30 AM EDT. It's going to be another exciting race. We hope to see you all!
