Charles Leclerc and Arthur Leclerc share a proud moment at the British GP
Charles Leclerc and Arthur Leclerc share a proud moment at the British GP, feeling complete as they leave the F1 world.
In the world championship, Max Verstappen enjoys the luxury of being well in front of the opposition. He emphasised during the FIA news conference that this does not, however, imply he will approach the race weekend in Britain in a different manner.
After winning the world championship the previous year, Verstappen is flourishing in 2022. After a challenging beginning to the racing season that included two collisions, the Dutchman eventually managed to recover his form. Sergio Perez’s deficit has grown to 46 points, while Charles Leclerc is even three points wider. For Verstappen, it does not alter anything.
The goal is to score points—as many as you can, of course—at all times, he said. “I’ve handled every race up to this point in the same manner, so I don’t see why this race needs to be any different. I’ll absolutely take the chance if I have the chance to do so.”
Even though Formula 1 has completed 10 races and is about halfway through the schedule, Verstappen believes that there is still much that may happen. To be in with a chance of winning the championship, there are still a tonne of races left to compete in.
British spectators are booing Verstappen.
At Silverstone, Verstappen had to endure a lot of jeers from the British audience. Christian Horner and Toto Wolff, who disapproved of the behaviour, later came out in favour of him. Verstappen, though, appeared unconcerned by it and claimed to be totally concentrated on the race.
