The British Grand Prix provided plenty of spectacle and a new winner. Carlos Sainz stood on the top step of the podium for the first time in his Formula One career. Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton both finished on the podium after an intense battle in the closing laps of the race.

Verstappen in seventh place

Charles Leclerc finished just outside the podium after a long stint driving on old hard tyres. He was just able to keep Fernando Alonso behind him. Max Verstappen had a disappointing race and finished in seventh place with a damaged RB18.

A very heavy crash at the start of the race meant that Alexander Albon, Guanyu Zhou and George Russell were forced out of the race. There were three more dropouts in the end. The many dropouts meant an immediate opportunity for the rearguard teams. Mick Schumacher managed to score points for the first time and Kevin Magnussen and Sebastian Vettel also finished in the points.
