The biggest unknown in the British grand prix will be the tension at Mercedes after the contact between Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton at the last lap in Austria. We left the Red Bull Ring with many unknowns. On one hand, it can be a good thing to race again immediately, on the other hand there is a few time to calm everyone down. The team has to make important decisions to prevent these kind of episodes from happening again.
As usual, the weather will affect the race, with unexpected changes that bother the devised choices. We will get to a fast circuit where the aerodynamics has a certain importance. Mercedes will be the favored, and Ferrari will have to defend itself from a strongly growing Red Bull also backed by the French Power Unit. The tires brought by Pirelli and temperatures won’t favor the Red cars that will arrive in Silverstone with a new aerodynamics set.Last year, Williams emerged strongly both in qualifying and in race, even if this year, they seem to have more difficulties.
We have entered a decisive month with four races in just five weekends. After Silverstone and before the summer break, we will race in Hungary and Germany. We will have a little time to react and to absorb the results in the best way. We could resolve a good chunk of the world championship in this month. We have to keep the head cool.
