Formula 1 has decided to shake up its qualifying format with all-new 100km sprint qualifying that took place at Silverstone.
So, we take a look at the biggest winners and losers to emerge from the Saturday F1 event.
Max Verstappen won the first-ever sprint race at Silverstone, consequently taking his fourth consecutive pole position. Starting from P2 behind his arch-rival Lewis Hamilton, the Dutch made a splendid start to overtake the reigning champion.
Meanwhile, Verstappen's teammate Sergio Perez finished rock bottom and will start behind Nikita Mazepin. Surprising isn't it! The Mexican was involved in a scary spin around the exit of Becketts and ended up being the only retirement of the race.
Fernando Alonso one of the four drivers to start the sprint on soft compound gained six places from P11 to P5 in just a half lap. Eventually, the two McLarens overtook the Spaniard after a hard-fought battle with Vettel, Alonso finished P7.
During the first lap, Carlos Sainz and George Russell made a contact around turn 6, as the latter fell down to P18. However, Sainz waste no time to cover his lost ground and will start the race from P11.
After posting a flying lap on Friday qualifying George Russell started the sprint race at P7 and many thought due to Williams's lack of pace he will fall further behind the grid. But the young Brit did exceptional work to finish P9.
Lewis Hamilton started the race from pole after a spectacular lap in the Friday qualifying but start behind his title rival Max Verstappen. The Dutch jumped pole sitter Hamilton at the start and led the British GP sprint race until the end.
