‘I didn’t see it coming, it’s an incredible result’: Max Verstappen relishes after claiming shock victory at F1’s 70th Anniversary Grand Prix to take his first win of the season as both Mercedes cars struggled with tyre issues

Max Verstappen admits he did not see his win coming after he guided his Red Bull car to victory at Formula One’s 70th Anniversary Grand Prix at Silverstone. Max Verstappen took his first win of the season as his tyres survived the blistering heat. Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas struggled for pace as their tyres suffered from blistering. The victory puts Verstappen second in the drivers standings, 30 points behind Hamilton. After the first stint it seemed like we were really good on the tyres. Of course that is a question mark how Mercedes is going to go on the hard tyre. The victory ends Mercedes’ unbeaten run after Hamilton or Bottas have won the opening races. ‘On a day like today where they’re struggling with tyres and we don’t have any issues then of course you have a chance of winning that race.’.
