At the British Grand Prix (the next one will be called the 70 years F1 Grand Prix), it will come with a classification already dominated by the two Mercedes drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, who have shared the victories in the first three occasions of the year.

Laurent Mekies (Ferrari): “There are no magic formulas”.
“The racing team had the opportunity to return home for a few days after the first hat-trick of races, but we are ready to get back on track with the desire to bring home the maximum from this weekend in terms of results – added the French manager – This start of the season is certainly demanding a test of character from everyone, but we know we can count on a compact team, our drivers and fans to team up and be able to react. There are no magic formulas to change the state of affairs quickly and we know that we have a lot of work ahead of us, but we are here to do it ”.
