Who can stop Lewis Hamilton before his home game at the Silverstone Grand Prix? (Formula 1: qualifying in Silvestone on Saturday from 3 p.m. in the LIVETICKER).
The most likely answer: nobody. The British world champion enters the race in the Mercedes as an absolute top favorite. Above all because the route in southern England suits the 35-year-old.

Because at Silverstone, it’s all about doing well in the fast hairpin bends – and that was Hamilton in the first three races of Formula 1 whenever necessary. The Silver Arrows and Racing Point’s pursuers should have a clear advantage due to their efficient aerodynamics and powerful engines. Silverstone is also one of the fastest routes in the top class of motorsport.
Hamilton and Co. will also be there next weekend.
However, the world champion took it easy in the first and second training sessions and for the time being satisfied with second and fifth place in the two sessions. Lance Stroll set an amazing daily best at Racing Point.
Perez fails at Silverstone
Before qualifying, it remains to be seen whether the competition from Red Bull, Renault, McLaren and Ferrari can keep up with the favorite quartet.
Sergio Perez, who was the first driver of the F1 to be tested positive for the corona virus, will not be in the game. Nico Hülkenberg replaces him at short notice.
