QUALIFYING STARTS IN MIXED CONDITIONS ON INTERMEDIATE TYRE AND ENDS ON SUPERSOFT: LEWIS HAMILTON FASTEST

ALTERNATIVE STRATEGY ADOPTED BY VALTTERI BOTTAS: THE ONLY DRIVER IN TOP 10 TO SET FASTEST Q2 TIME ON SOFT

STRATEGY WILL DEPEND ON WEATHER CONDITIONS

BUT A MIXTURE OF ONE AND TWO PIT STOPS ARE POSSIBLE

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING

“Strategically, the biggest interest in qualifying was from Valtteri Bottas’s decision to run the soft in Q2 in order to have the option to run a different race strategy. This means that he should be able to run a longer first stint than his direct rivals tomorrow and make up track position. With track temperatures rarely above 20 degrees centigrade today and some rain dampening the track at the start of the session, the tyres faced a tough task to generate grip and heat. Nonetheless, Hamilton set an extraordinary lap that once again lowered the record for the current configuration at Silverstone. Pit strategy tomorrow could range between one and two stops, depending on the degradation rate of the supersoft.”
