British Grand Prix: Verstappen claims sixth consecutive win as Norris, Hamilton make podium

Red Bull driver now 99 points clear of competition

Red Bull Racing driver Max Verstappen was once again untouchable as he zoomed to victory in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone to claim his sixth success in a row this season.

Having won on the Red Bull Circuit in the Austrian Grand Prix, Verstappen returned to action in Britain as he looked for only a second career win at Silverstone.

The Dutch driver won the pole position in qualifying but quickly found himself behind Britishman Lando Norris as the race started. It took him four laps to reclaim his lead from Norris and once he did, he did not relinquish it any longer. He finished first, with the British pair of Norris (McLaren) and Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) finishing behind him in second and third, respectively.

Oscar Piastri finished in fourth place and George Russell was fifth while Sergio Perez was sixth. Fernando Alonso finished seventh, Alex Albon was eighth, Charles Leclerc was ninth and Carlos Sainz finished in tenth place.

Red Bull have now won 11 races in a row this season, equalling the record previously held by McLaren. Verstappen holds a healthy 99-point lead and is closing in on a third consecutive title this season.

The action will continue in Budapest with the Hungary Grand Prix between July 21st and 23rd as we enter into the second half of the season.
