Grand Prix of Great Britain 2016: Results of classification

Hamilton en el GP de Gran BretañaStarts on Saturday at the circuit of Silvestone. Hamilton takes pole in his circuit of the house, in the GP of Great Britain from 2016. Rosberg has not been able to with the time of his team mate and has complied with the second position of this interesting qualifying session. Today has not made an act of presence the rain, but neither has it been required to live an exciting classification.

spaniards have also had a nice session, coming to fight between them for the last positions in the Top10. Both have managed to get into Q3 and have been competing until the end of the session for a long time, but finally Carlos Sainz Jr. has managed to stay ahead of Alonso, as the double champion made for a good time, but it has been cancelled for having put all four wheels off the track (something that have been especially meticulous the commissioners, we have already seen take the time to others, such as Hamilton).

Sauber de Ericsson 2016The who has not had a session just as nice has been Marcus Ericsson, the Swedish Sauber has had a strong crash in the session of free practice 3 and the car has been destroyed. Fortunately, the nordic is good, but his team has not been able to repair the car in time for qualifying and will start tomorrow from the pitlane. In addition, the team Sauber is still struggling to pay its employees and is in a critical situation, so I hope that is resolved and the breaking of the pieces don’t suppose a big problem…

The other that it has also not had a good session has been Vettel. The German Ferrari will penalize you tomorrow to change the gearbox again today failed in free practice 3, so you will have 5 positions penalty with respect to the position reached today and tomorrow, he will start behind Alonso and Carlos Sainz, with the penalty climbing one position each. However, the weekend has not been good for the Maranello, the italians were seen as not only could they not with the superiority of Mercedes, but who are in the struggle also to Red Bull.

Tomorrow we will see if the two spaniards can finish the race without reliability problems or other types of incidents, and can add some good points, because in the last few races, they have not been accompanied by luck. To see how it works the new update of the Honda engine with those two tokens invested here at Silverstone, home of McLaren, and to see if the other 10 can get reach the top positions this year, although he paints difficult, but many voices in the paddock were surprised by the tremendous gain of power of Honda in these two years (despite still not see the expected results).
