The combination behind the Silverstone battles that showed "F1 at its best"

OPINION: The late battling in the British Grand Prix wowed Formula 1 fans and surely represents the best racing action of the season so far. And there was a cocktail of factors that created the action, from which Carlos Sainz emerged as a popular new winner.

“That was very reminiscent of the karting days. And I feel that that's Formula 1 at its best.”

That’s how Lewis Hamilton reflected on the brilliant 10-lap blast to the end of the British Grand Prix. Carlos Sainz, having decisively defied Ferrari’s instruction to try and make up for its baffling call not to pit leader Charles Leclerc for the fresh softs most ended up on, immediately seized his chance to finally take his first F1 race win.
