This Summer has been a great one for sports fans and Sunday 14th July is no exception; with the ICC Cricket World Cup Final, Wimbledon Finals and the F1 British Grand Prix all taking place.
One of the most anticipated races of the Formula 1 season this year is the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Last year saw Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel win the race with Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton only managing second place in front of his home crowd. Hamilton has had a great start to the 2019 season so far winning six of the nine races and topping the driver's standings with 197 points.
Rival Vettel has yet to have a win this season and he will be hoping to replicate his success from 2018, but young teammate Charles Leclerc is definitely going to put the pressure on to get his first Formula 1 victory. Mercedes have certainly dominated the 2019 season winning every race, but this soon came to an end when Red Bull's Max Verstappen took victory at his home race, but can he do it again at the British Grand Prix?
Securing Pole Position is vital for this race and Valtteri Bottas beat teammate Lewis Hamilton by 0.006s to achieve this. Who will take podium this time around?
