Hoping to see the end of bad luck run for Verstappen and a straight forward weekend for Lewis.

Meh, it will be like Austria, speaking about rain the hole week and finally, nothing.

Its Silverstone and after two bad weekends I see Hamilton winning this race. He will be 100% focused on this, for sure.

But it will be interesting because both Mercedes and Ferrari will bring important PU updates so let´s see if Ferrari can close the gap. Their car should be strong here.

I hope Bottas wins this race. Then it will be moving towards a three horse race for the championship.
Always find the gap then use it.

Probably the gap is going to be same because mercedes is also bringing new update so i'm not that much optimistic about that

Thats the only chance for Vettel. As he will have a team mate helping him while the Merc boys take points off each other (Mclaren 2007)

Where did that happen this season (taking points off each other)?

Help from the Teammate is far more valuable if the second driver takes points from the opponing team. I dont't see that happening soon with RAIs performance and the better car that Mercedes has since Canada.

That very much depends on how they finish. The 2007 season highlights this quite nicely, 2010 maybe too.

Example: 20 races. 3 Drivers (X, Y, Z), 2 teams (A, B). Driver X and Y drive for team A, driver Z for team B.

Scenario 1:
Driver Z finishes 3rd 20 races. 20 * 15 = 300 points.
Driver X and Driver Y both finish equally with 10 wins each and 10 times in 2nd. (10*25) + (10*18) = 430 points each.

Scenario 2:
Lets assume Team A and B are closer and split the wins (because on half the races, Team B has the quicker car)
Driver Z wins 10 races but concedes 3rd every other race. (10*25) + (10*15) = 400 points.
Driver X and Driver Y again split wins when they have the best car and concede the equal points on the other races.
(5*25)+(5*18)+(5*15)+(5*12) = 350 points.

So in this type of scenario, Driver Z wins as a result of being the sole contender and not losing to his team-mate.
Not for nothing, Rosberg's Championship is the only thing that lends credibility to Hamilton's recent success. Otherwise, he'd just be the guy who's had the best car. — bhall II

Copse will be the one to keep an eye on. Still in doubt they'll be flat though as that would require ~40-50 kph higher speed at the apex compared to last year and that's too much. Probably just a small lift to drop some speed at the entry.

I think it could be flat on low fuel ofc. 2010 RB 6 could do it.

shitty quality but it shows its flat if I'm not mistaken
