Lewis Hamilton has managed to come away from his home Grand Prix with a good load of points after landing his W13 in P3 at the end of the race. The Brit after the race has shown gratitude towards the team for the magnificent job they did with the upgraded package.
Lewis Hamilton ahead of the race said that he was going to be aggressive from the get-go and this was exactly what the Brit was during the whole 52 laps of the race.
Today’s result was all the more important after his teammate Russell crashed out within the first 21 seconds of the race and Hamilton while dwelling on his performance said, “I gave it everything today. I was trying to chase down those Ferraris. Congratulations to Carlos! They were just too quick for us today. In the end, I was in that battle with Checo and those guys were just too quick on the straights.”
The 37-year-old has indicated that he gave his all on track today but it was just too much to ask from the W13 to chase after Sergio Perez’s Red Bull. However, being a big ambassador of the sport, Lewis has congratulated Carlos Sainz on his maiden victory in Formula One.
Lewis Hamilton’s assessment of the final few laps
The Silverstone Grand Prix was full of nerve-wracking action as the race produced moments that are going to stay fresh in the memories of fans for some time to come.
Lewis Hamilton during the closing stages was at the center of the chaos that was happening around him as there were five cars trying to secure the top three places.
Hamilton while stressing about the crazy action said, “We lost a bit of time warming up. The pace was great on both tires. When you get a Red Bull behind you they are so quick on the straight. I am glad everyone is safe after the big crash at the start.”
Lewis after getting into the tussle with Perez felt that Red Bull was too strong on the straights and was grateful that he was able to get the better of Charles Leclerc at the end.
Next up on the F1 calendar is the Austrian Grand Prix and the Brit would be looking to continue the good run of form that has been on since Montreal.
