Carlos Sainz shines in Silverstone deluge to take British F1 GP pole

The Ferrari driver beat Red Bull’s Max Verstappen into second with his Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc in third. The Dutchman appeared to have the edge only for Sainz to time his best lap of the day to perfection, with a time of 1min 40.983sec. Verstapen now has a 46-point lead over Pérez and is 49 points clear of Leclerc. Ferrari must consider how best to balance Sainz’s ambition for his first win with Leclerc’s clear need to claw back points on Verstappen. Williams’ Nicholas Latifi did very well to make Q3 for the first time in his career with a strong run in the wet and finished in 10th.
