THE LIKELY OUTCOME? – Stop last weekend, the Formula 1 heat engines in view of the fourth race of the championship is the Gp of Great Britain 2020, which will take place on the Silverstone circuit, one of the most long-lived and rich tradition in the circus (it hosted the first race in 1947). In addition to the many teams that are based in England, the Gp is also “home” for the English driver Lewis Hamilton, who will try to get the sixth success in seven years and the seventh in the absolute: no one has achieved more. Hamilton is also first for the pole position. Among the stables, the one with more successes is the Ferrari (I was seventeen), but it is unlikely that this year will fight for the victory, as demonstrated by the poor results obtained so far from the single-seater SF-1000.
TYRES TO the TEST – Silverstone is a demanding circuit for the tyres, according to the calculations of Pirelli, seen that in long corners the cars generate loads of up to 5G. Suffice it to say that the Pirelli assigns a score of five points out of five (the maximum expected) in the areas of stress for the tires and lateral force, while the surface grip and the downforce they have four points out of five. The track English, in contrast, is among the less demanding for the brakes: if those most hostile have five points, Silverstone has two. The riders face seven braking every lap, for a total of twelve seconds and eleven minutes into the race. The slowdown is a bit more challenging to the curve 3, that the riders reach after you have not operated the brakes in the curves 1 and 2: approximately 2.5 seconds, it must go from 320 to 125 km/h.
