THROUGH GOES HAMILTON— Formula 1 (@F1) January 3, 2023
The 2022 British Grand Prix has been voted the best race of the season!
Enjoy extended highlights from that dramatic day at Silverstone #F1
GPblog editors also voted the British Grand Prix the best of 2022. Don't remember what happened? A little recap then!
A true thriller of a race followed after Guanyu Zhou's terrifying crash at the start. The lead changed several times between Verstappen, Leclerc, Hamilton and Sainz, who fought a fierce battle at the front. However, Verstappen's RB18 was damaged by debris from Pierre Gasly's AlphaTauri, preventing the Dutchman from competing for victory.
This could have been a great opportunity for Leclerc, but he again fell victim to a lack of decisiveness from his team, which did not bring the driver in during a late safety car while his opponents - including Sainz - did.
A spectacular battle ensued between Hamilton and both Ferrari drivers, with Leclerc managing to overtake the Briton in a daring outside move at Copse - where it went horribly wrong a year earlier when Verstappen made a similar overtaking attempt. In the end, it was Sainz who took the win with Perez and Hamilton behind him.
