Carlos Sainz won a thrilling British Grand Prix at Silverstone Sunday, overcoming his Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc to score his 1st F1 win. Charles Leclerc 4th.
Carlos Sainz became the 104th driver in Formula One history to take Pole position as he pipped Red Bull’s Max Verstappen to Top spot during qualifying for the 2022 British Grand Prix.
In the action, the Spaniard held his nerve when it mattered most as Ferrari took Top spot in their bid to break a sequence of 6 Red Bull race wins in a row.
Due to the wet weather conditions, it all ended up coming down to the last lap on an ever drier track as Mr. Verstappen looked set to claim his 4th Pole position of the season. Instead, Mr. Sainz put together an impressive lap to snatch away Top spot by just 0.072 seconds.
His teammate Charles Leclerc inadvertently helped as he suffered a spin on his final lap which meant Mr. Verstappen had to slow under yellow flags, so Mr. Sainz starts Sunday’s race in P1.
